Introducing the New ŠKODA KODIAQ RS

Behold the all-new ŠKODA KODIAQ RS, a 7-seater SUV with exciting, dynamic driving capabilities. The RS denotes ŠKODA’s performance models, and the extras in the KODIAQ RS are no exception. With sporty bumpers, high-gloss black details, and 20″ alloy wheels, turning heads before you even rev the egine will be your new norm.

Driving Perks

Imagine, an SUV going from 0-100km in 6.6 seconds, with 180kW of power. The 2.0l petrol engine powers all four wheels, meaning you can tackle gnarly roads with ease. The DSG automatic transmission offers seven speeds, and the shifter features a unique high-contrast red stitching along with the model’s signature RS logo.

The KODIAQ RS knows how to handle, too. The Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC) incorporates Driving Mode Select, allowing the vehicle to drive in several modes that change stiffness of the shock absorbers. For family school runs you can use the relaxed mode, but feel free to turn it up a notch with the dynamic, sporty setting. When things get really serious, try out the off-road mode.

Interior Details

To keep your life organised and at your fingertips, you’ll find the storage compartment in the centre console doubles as a wireless charging station. Furthermore, the digital dash features a connection to Smartlink, allowing connectivity to infotainment systems via Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and MirrorLink. Accessing all the essentials at the tip of your fingers keeps your hands and eyes on the road.

As if that weren’t enough, the 10.25″ Digital Dash instrument cluster allows drivers a choice of five different displays, just above the steering wheel. Customise from navigation, media playback, and phone options. The 9.2″ Columbus infotainment offers plenty of bells and whistles, including 3D navigation, a DVD player, and an SSD drive.

Along with the centre console, you’ll find two USB-C connectors in the front of the vehicle, along with the option to add two more ports in the back if needed.

ŠKODA Safety

A ŠKODA is hardly complete without it’s Simply Clever technology. A range of safety assists on this vehicle mean that your vehicle will alert you for dangers ahead, behind, and to the side of you, plus assists in parking and illuminating your drive with LED lights. The KODIAQ’s nine airbags ensure all precious cargo is protected.
