Skoda has revealed the range and pricing for the facelifted Kodiaq in the United Kingdom, with first deliveries scheduled for early July.
The updated Skoda Kodiaq starts at £27,650 for the SE five-seat trim level, which includes standard LED headlights and taillights, a gloss black rear spoiler, an off-road-inspired lower front bumper feature, grey stitching on the dash, front and rear armrests, and door inserts.
The Kodiaq SE L, priced from £31,895, adds 19-inch alloy wheels, Full LED Matrix headlights with dynamic indicators, chrome roof rails, an extended roof spoiler with finlets, and textile floor mats to the lineup.
SportLine and Laurin & Klement trim levels are also available, starting at £35,805 and £41,720, respectively, while pricing for the range-topping Kodiaq vRS will be announced at a later date. Seating for seven passengers is standard on all models starting with the SE L.
Skoda’s facelifted Kodiaq now features a new front end with a more upright radiator grille, a raised bonnet, revised bumpers, and new front light units that are shallower and feature standard LED technology. The central air intake in the front bumper has also been widened, and the SE and SE L trim levels also feature aluminum-effect trim.
The rear bumper now features a diffuser-style element, while the tailgate now features a new spoiler design that extends further towards the rear of the vehicle. Additionally, the rear lights have been revamped with a more angular appearance and a new lighting signature.
In the UK, the facelifted Skoda Kodiaq will be available with a choice of three petrol and two diesel engines. The new 2.0-liter TSI petrol engine produces 242 horsepower and is fitted to the range-topping vRS model. This engine replaces the 2.0-liter TDI diesel found in the previous Kodiaq vRS and is mated to a new DSG transmission, while power is distributed to all four wheels as it was previously.
Skoda’s largest SUV model has also been updated with a variety of driver assistance features, including a new adaptive cruise control function and a new emergency braking function that can identify both pedestrians and cyclists.
