After being revealed in front of the worldwide audience during the Paris Motor Show late September, the all-new Skoda Kodiaq seven-seat SUV is gearing up for the European sales release.
The Czech automaker has revealed the pricing details for the home market – where it starts at 677,900 Czech koruna for the base trim – and for the UK market, where it kicks off from £21,495. The euro pricing details have not been released yet, but according to the conversion rates they start from at least €23,830. The new sport utility vehicle from Skoda will be offered with five engines, a manual or 7-speed DSG automatic, and either front or all-wheel drive. At home in the Czech Republic there are also three trim levels: Active, Ambition, and the flagship Style.
In England it can be had in four versions – S, SE, SE L, and Edition, with the latter being the Skoda way of revealing they are going after the 7-seater SUV segment. The base 2017 Skoda Kodiaq comes with a mere 1.4 TSI 125 PS turbo gasoline engine and manual transmission but at least the list of equipment includes niceties such as 17-inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, Front Assist, touchscreen infotainment, digital radio, and SmartLink phone connectivity. In the UK the flagship choice would be the 2.0 TDI with 190 PS and hooked to the 7-speed DSG dual-clutch transmission and all-wheel-drive.
