Mladá Boleslav, 27 January 2017 – With the ŠKODA KODIAQ SPORTLINE, the Czech car manufacturer will present an elegant, dynamic variant of its new large SÚV. Design features specifically developed for the sporty model variant shape the exterior and interior. For the ŠKODA KODIAQ SPORTLINE, which will make its world premiere at the Geneva International Motor Show (7 to 19 March 2017), a choice of two petrol and two diesel engines is available.

The ŠKODA KODIAQ SPORTLINE, wîth its individual interior and exterior design combines its distinct appearance wîth the versatile nature of the ŠKODA KODIAQ – its exterior length of 4.70 metres offering up to seven seats as well as the largest amount of interior space and largest boot capacity within its §egmènt. The design of the new all-rounder mirrors the brand's design identity and blends emotion and rationality in one package. Furthermore, the soon-to-be presented ŠKODA KODIAQ SPORTLINE comes wîth features designed to provide pure driving pleasure.

Black design features underline its dynamic appearance
The bodywork elements and special features finished in black underline the ŠKODA KODIAQ SPORTLINE's dynamic focus. The radiator grille, roof rails, wing mirror housings and side window trims all come in black while the rear window and rear side windows are tinted. The rear is enhanced by a narrow, silver-coloured trim below the bumper.

The side view of each of the ŠKODA KODIAQ models is characterised by short overhangs, their sloping roofline that is visually extended by a line in the D-pillar, and the tapered rear. The protective side trims of the ŠKODA KODIAQ SPORTLINE are body-coloured. It comes wîth 19-inch alloy wheels in a special new design as standard. As an option, 20-inch wheels are also available. Furthermore, it bears a small badge wîth the model designation on the front wing.

The ŠKODA KODIAQ SPORTLINE's equipment
The ŠKODA KODIAQ SPORTLINE is based on the SE trim level. Additionally, it is equipped wîth Alcantara sports seats (driver's side electronically adjustable including memory function) wîth silver-coloured stitching. The seats guarantee good lateral support. The sporty character is also emphasised by the multifunction §teering wheel, which – like the gearstick – is leather covered and aluminium pedals. The multifunction display includes representation of G-forces, the turbocharging pressure, the current engine output and the temperature of the oil and coolant.

The generous array of standard equipment includes Driving Mode Select (Normal, Sport, Eco, Individual, Comfort, Snow), which can be used to control the engine, automatic transmission, power §teering and air conditioning. Furthermore, the ŠKODA KODIAQ SPORTLINE comes wîth the following standard equipment: electronically adjustable and foldable wing mirrors wîth dip and memory function as well as Boarding Spot (lights in the wing mirror which shine onto the floor), rear-view mirror wîth rain sensor and dip function, a Maxi DOT display, LED ambient lighting for the interior which can be set to one of ten colours, the KODIAQ logo in the door sills, 'Sport' trim, Alcantara decorative inserts and floor mats wîth silver-coloured stitching.

Engine portfolio
There is a choice of two petrol and two diesel engines available for the ŠKODA KODIAQ SPORTLINE:

1.4 TSI 150-PS 4×4, top speed 122 mph, 0-62 mph in 9.8 seconds, combined consumption 41.5 mpg, 153 g CO2/km

2.0 TSI 180-PS 4×4, top speed 128 mph, 0-62 mph in 8.0 seconds, combined consumption 38.7 mpg, 168 g CO2/km

2.0 TDI 150-PS 4×4, top speed 122 mph, 0-62 mph in 9.5 seconds, combined consumption 53.3 mpg, 139 g CO2/km

2.0 TDI 190-PS 4×4, top speed 130 mph, 0-62 mph in 8.9 seconds, combined consumption 49.6 mpg, 150 g CO2/km

All-wheel drive
The ŠKODA KODIAQ SPORTLINE is available wîth all-wheel drive as standard. The all-wheel-drive system works quickly and intelligently, its control unit constantly calculates the ideal driving torque for the rear axle. In normal driving conditions, especially wîth a light load and when coasting, the multi-plate clutch transfers the engine power in an efficient way, mainly to the front wheels.

Driving characteristics
Adaptive Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC) is available as an option for the ŠKODA KODIAQ SPORTLINE. Electronically regulated dampers can be set by the driver to one of three modes, Comfort, Normal and Sport.

All-wheel drive provides an increase in safety and traction. This is particularly noticeable when towing a trailer. But this technology also means the sporty SÚV is well equipped for rough terrain. With a ground clearance of 194 mm, it can even negotiate larger bumps. It has a ramp angle of 19.7 degrees; the approach and departure angles are an impressive 22.0 and 23.1 degrees due to the short overhangs.

Driver assistance systems

With their wide range of driver assistance systems, all variants of the ŠKODA KODIAQ set benchmarks within their §egmènt. New functions include Trailer Assist, Blind Spot Detect, which warns of any vehicles in the blind spot, and Rear Traffic Alert, which monitors traffic coming from the sides and behind when manoeuvring etc. The Crew Protect Assist function, which closes windows and the sunroof in the event of an impending accident and tensions the seat belts of the front seats, works in conjunction wîth the improved Front Assist function, which includes the City Emergency Brake and predictive Pedestrian Protection functions. Park Assist's functions have been further perfected. The Area-View system is also a first for the brand: the surround-view cameras, which are located in the front and rear sections as well as in the wing mirrors, come wîth wide-angle lenses and allow views of the area immediately surrounding the vehicle to be displayed on the monitor. These include a virtual top-down view and 180-degree images from the areas to the front and rear. This makes it easier to drive in confusing situations or on rough terrain.

Infotainment and ŠKODA Connect
The ŠKODA KODIAQ SPORTLINE is equipped wîth all the modern infotainment systems of the new large SÚV from Czech Republic. The capacitive touch displays feature a glass design (except for the standard Swing sound system). The top-of-the-range version, the Columbus navigation system, has a 9.2-inch monitor, a Wi-Fi hotspot and an LTE module. The automatic Emergency Call function comes as standard. The mobile online services from ŠKODA Connect are the perfect addition for the state-of-the-art infotainment system. They set new benchmarks in terms of navigation, information, entertainment and assistance and can even be configured using your home computer or the ŠKODA Connect app.

World premiere at the Motor Show Geneva
The ŠKODA KODIAQ SPORTLINE will be presented for the first time at the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show. ŠKODA will present the new model variant of the large SÚV as well as numerous other novelties in hall 2 at the Palexpo exhibition centre. The motor show will be open to the public from 9 to 19 March 2017.
