The company’s official Kodiaq teasers have been digitally altered in order to reveal the majority of its design, quite a few weeks ahead of the official Berlin introduction scheduled for September 1.
The Skoda Kodiaq must be one of the most teased models from the Czech manufacturer, and it appears their play with the play with everybody’s patience might have backfired – as the guys over at AutoForum.cz decided to have a shot at revealing the design via Photoshop play. The latter is mostly revealed now after manipulating the official teasers – and an interesting fact includes Skoda’s chief designer Jozef Kaban working on the Kodiaq appearance after penning the mighty Bugatti Veyron. This is the first sport utility vehicle with up to seven seats coming out of Skoda’s stable and we can see the VisionS concept was actually used as inspiration for the production version model.
The Skoda Kodiaq is one practical ride, at 4.7 meters (185 inches) long and with a 2.79-meter (109.8-inch) wheelbase, still boasting 270 liters (9.5 cubic feet) of trunk space with all seven seats in place. Go for the five-seat version and the standard configuration delivers 2,165 liters (76.4 cubic feet) with rear seats folded. Based on the MQB architecture, the Kodiaq will deploy engines, gearboxes, and drivetrains from other siblings – such as the Volkswagen Tiguan.
