Škoda introduces the Kodiaq Sportline

Is there such a thing as too much choice? When it comes to the Kodiaq SUV, Škoda clearly doesn’t think so.

Customers are faced with a selection of five engines, two transmissions, front- or all-wheel drive, five- or seven-seat interiors and now – with the arrival of a Sportline variant – six trim grades.

As its name suggests, the new Sportline is intended to add a sporty-looking model to the range. Based on the existing SE, unique features include redesigned bumpers and a black finish for the door mirror caps, radiator grille, roof rails and window trims. A set of 19” alloy wheels and rear privacy glass are also part of the specification.

Inside, front sports seats, Alcantara upholstery, aluminium pedals and a leather-covered steering wheel all help to create a suitable ambiance.

The Sportline comes with all-wheel drive as standard. Škoda isn’t offering this version with the Kodiaq’s lowest-powered engine, so that leaves four to pick from:
  • 1.4 litre TSI petrol - 148 bhp (110 kW / 150 PS)
  • 2.0 litre TSI petrol - 177 bhp (132 kW / 180 PS)
  • 2.0 litre TDI diesel - 148 bhp (110 kW / 150 PS)
  • 2.0 litre TDI diesel - 187 bhp (140 kW / 190 PS)
For those buyers requiring a slightly sportier driving experience, Dynamic Chassis Control (three-mode variable damping) and a 20” wheel upgrade appear on the options list.
