Skoda will present in just a few days the new Skoda Kodiaq. The next April 13th, the Czech firm will reveal the facelift experienced by the largest of its SUVs, although it has already advanced some details in the form of a teaser.
At the aesthetic level, the Skoda Kodiaq 2021 will have a redesigned front, even more striking according to the manufacturer, and with a more upright and now hexagonal grill, in the style of the electric Enyaq iV.
The headlights appear to be slimmer than the outgoing model and will be paired with a separate LED module set lower so it will retain that four-eyed look, but will presumably now be more eye-catching.
Another new detail that is expected to stand out, at least according to the first sketch of the model outlined by the brand, is the redesigned front apron. It will feature a wider central air intake, framed on both sides by L-shaped trims and an aluminum-look insert.
As for the rear, for now there is no official teaser to illustrate it, but the brand anticipates that it will boast of taillights with “crystalline structures” that represent “a slimmer version of the typical Skoda C-shape.”
Regarding the interior, the Czech brand has confirmed that the SUV will retain the seven seater option instead of five, while at the technological level a great revolution is not expected beyond a tuning in connectivity and driving aids.
Technical Data Sheet: Engine, catalog of versions, measurements and other characteristics
Under the hood, for now there is no confirmed data, although hopefully it will adopt a plug-in hybrid version and becomes the second SUV in the Skoda range with the ZERO label from DGT, after the aforementioned Enyaq.
The Skoda Kodiaq could mount the mechanics offered in the new Skoda Octavia iV and Superb iV, which combine a motor gasoline 1.4 TSI of four cylinders with another electric one capable of generating 85 kW (113 CV), resulting in maximum combined powers above 200 hp.
Nor can it be ruled out that at some point a more performance version with plug-in hybrid technology and the apellido RS to shoot the power up to 245 CV as it happens in the Octavia RS iV or in his cousin Volkswagen Tiguan PHEV.
The battery that would power the emission-free propeller would be lithium-ion and with 13 kWh capacity to achieve around the 50 km of electric autonomy in WLTP cycle.
Apart from the electrified variant, the logical thing is that the Kodiaq 2021 maintains the 2.0 TDI diesel and 1.5 liter TSI petrol versions, with powers between 150 and 200 CV.
What has already been confirmed by Skoda is that the Kodiaq 2021 will keep the versions with 4×4 drive.
In any case, we will have to wait until next week to confirm the guesses and discover all the secrets of Skoda’s large SUV.
Price Skoda Kodiaq 2021
At this point, the prices of the new Skoda Kodiaq, although being a restyling in which the changes will not be so pronounced, they should not be too far from those of the current model.
The current Skoda Kodiaq moves in a price range that oscillates between 28,680 euros and 42,900 euros Scout finish.
Something above 40,000 euros should also be the plug-in hybrid version in case it finally reaches the range, although remaining below the 44,500 euros that the Volkswagen Tiguan PHEV costs, as it should be the benchmark in this segment and with this technology from the Volkswagen Group.
