From sketches to production, Skoda has today released the first teaser photos of its upcoming Kodiaq SUV. First previewed with the VisionS concept in Geneva, we have also seen prototypes undergoing testing recently.
The full size SUV shares the same platform with the Volkswagen Tiguan and is set to sit above the Skoda Yeti. The teasers give a glimpse of the production model’s front fascia, taillight, wheel design and side profile. And things are looking pretty promising, with the production three-row SUV closely resembling the concept, with sharp creases and strong shoulder lines.
The design is said to take inspiration from Czech crystal glasswork, with delicate but bold lines. Its long wheelbase coupled with short overhangs gives it great proportions while maximizing interior space. Skoda also promises a striking interior to match the exterior styling.
The Kodiaq is expected to mimic the engine line-up of the Tiguan, which means a slew of turbocharged petrol and diesel engines ranging from 1.4- to 2.0-litre, paired with dual-clutch transmission and all-wheel drive.
The 2017 Skoda Kodiaq is scheduled for a September debut at the Paris Motor show.
