With the ŠKODA KODIAQ SPORTLINE, the
Czech car manufacturer will present an elegant, dynamic variant of its new
large SUV. 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, with its individual interior and exterior design,
emphasises the agility and dynamism of the brand’s large SUV above all else. The new
model variant combines its distinct appearance with 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 segment. The design
of the new all-rounder mirrors the brand’s design identity and represents a good mix of
emotiveness and rationality. Furthermore, the soon-to-be presented ŠKODA KODIAQ
SPORTLINE comes with 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. The rear window and rear side windows are
tinted (SunSet). The rear is enhanced by a narrow, silver-coloured trim below the
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 with 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 with the model
designation on the front wing.
The ŠKODA KODIAQ SPORTLINE’s equipment
The ŠKODA KODIAQ SPORTLINE is based on the Ambition trim level. Additionally, it is
equipped with sports seats (driver’s side electronically adjustable including memory
function) with Alcantara covers and silver-coloured stitching. The seats guarantee good
lateral support. The sporty character is also emphasised by the multifunction steering
wheel, which – just like the gearstick – is leather covered and the aluminium pedals.
Display with sporty visuals 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 steering and air conditioning. Furthermore, the ŠKODA KODIAQ
SPORTLINE comes with the following standard equipment: electronically adjustable and
foldable wing mirrors with dip and memory function as well as Boarding Spot (lights in
the wing mirror which shine onto the floor), rear-view mirror with 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 with silver-coloured stitching.
There is a choice of two petrol and two diesel engines available for the ŠKODA KODIAQ SPORTLINE:
-1.4 TSI 110 kW (150 PS) 4×4, top speed 197 km/h, 0-100 km/h in 9.8 seconds,
combined consumption of 6.8 l per 100 km, 153 g CO2/km
- 2.0 TSI 132 kW (180 PS) 4×4, top speed 207 km/h, 0-100 km/h in 8.0 seconds,
combined consumption of 7.3 l per 100 km, 168 g CO2/km
- 2.0 TDI 110 kW (150 PS) 4×4, top speed 197 km/h, 0-100 km/h in 9.5 seconds,
combined consumption of 5.3 l per 100 km, 139 g CO2/km

combined consumption of 5.7 l per 100 km, 150 g CO2/km
The ŠKODA KODIAQ SPORTLINE is available with all-wheel drive as standard. The allwheel-drive
system works quickly and intelligently, its control unit constantly calculates
the ideal driving torque for the rear axle. In normal driving conditions, especially with a
light load and when coasting, the multi-plate clutch transfers the engine power in a fueleconomical
way mainly to the front wheels.
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 SUV 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 segment. 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 with 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 with 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 with all the modern infotainment systems of
the new large SUV 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 SUV as
well as numerous other novelties in hall 2 at the Palexpo exhibition centre. The motor
