2018 Skoda Kodiaq Review, New Design and Specs
2018 Skoda Kodiaq Review
Independently of Volkswagen’s successes or fails, its Czech division has its own policy that appears to be rather good for now. Skoda is producing the vehicles that, by their performance, comfort and affordable prices, can rival their German siblings. Today’s Skoda line-up features different models, but the flagman position has been given to the Kodiaq. Although this mid-size crossover is a product of remodeling of the VW Tiguan, it have grown an impressive thing in the car world, while having, with its remade exterior and interior, a lower price.
For 2018, the automaker is going to release a new version of the Kodiaq codenamed Sportline. The new car can be called a real embodiment of dynamism and power. The main Kodiaq’s distinction is its dimensions. It is much longer than the Tiguan (185 inches) and offered, in some trims, with a third row. The laconic and elegant appearance is created by black finishing of the bodywork featuring stylish headlights, grill, side mirrors and roof rails. In the rear end, we can see a tinted rear door window with a spoiler, silver bumper band as well as two-pipe exhausting system. Additionally, the new Kodiaq’s will be equipped with newly designed 19” alloy wheels. Optionally, 20-inch wheels may be installed.
As far the powertrain, the upcoming Kodiaq will get two petrol and two diesel engines. The speed showings of the motors will be relatively at the same level (around 125 mph). The smallest one is TSI and have displacement of 1.4 liters and 150 hp of output. The other engines are 2.0 L. The second petrol unit can show 180 horsepower. The output of the diesel engines is 150 hp and 190 hp. Following the SUV standards, all the Kodiaq trims will receive all-wheel drive transmissions. Besides, the model will offer good fuel economy which is averagely rated at 40 mpg.
