Skoda UAE has introduced the new Kodiaq to the mid-size SUV segment.

With its impressive design, functionality, spacious interior, advanced connectivity and assistance systems, the Kodiaq makes a strong statement.

Its bold design encompasses several distinctive characteristics such as extra leg room, special features on the front and rear seats, ergonomically placed functions, excellent workmanship and the largest boot in its class to fit all your precious cargo.

The finely tuned chassis with optional Dynamic Chassis Control, combined with the solid steel body and completely soundproofed interior provide an ideal environment for passengers. It packs a top of the line infotainment system consisting of a 9.2in screen, 64 GB of storage, DVD and optional LTE module for high-speed internet access. The Wi-Fi hotspot allows passengers to browse the internet, stream music or view their emails while on the go.

Two turbo engines are available, a 1.4-litre turbo with 150 horsepower or the 2.0-litre turbo engine with 180 horsepower. The 1.4 is the first ever 1.4 turbo engine 4x4, seven seater. The Kodiaq is also the first model by Skoda to offer the new dual clutch transmission for engines with high power and torque.

Mohammed Al Dhaheri, General Manager Skoda noted, “True to its name — the Kodiaq is up for any challenge. Derived from the Kodiak bear, which inhabits the Kodiak Archipelago in Alaska, this car is a testament to automotive strength both on and off-road. As the brand’s first large SUV, the agile Kodiaq is presenting a totally new experience for our customers, unlike anything else we have ever created. The striking design is modern and appealing while its technology enables you to always stay within reach and its spacious interior provides for added comfort at all times. Whether you are tackling the everyday drive, or unwinding with a long road trip – the Kodiaq is a safe and reliable choice.”

The new Kodiaq is now available to order in the UAE, with a starting price of dH110,000 including VAT.
