ŠKODA is offering a first glimpse of the new ŠKODA Kodiaq vRS high-performance SUV by releasing two design sketches. Several accents in gloss black accentuate the dynamic appearance of the new, top-of-the-range SUV. It’s the first time the vRS initials, which are exclusively reserved for ŠKODA’s sportiest models, have been seen on an SUV. The emotive design comes alive thanks to the interplay of elegant lines, sporty contours and the typical robust nature of an SUV. The 240 PS ŠKODA Kodiaq vRS will make its debut at the 2018 Paris Motor Show in October.

 

The wide, 3D-effect radiator grille gives the ŠKODA Kodiaq vRS an impressive presence. With a gloss black finish, it brings out the sporty character of the SUV – which comes with the most powerful production diesel engine in the history of the Czech brand. The roof rails, window frames and wing mirrors also shimmer in gloss black. The Kodiaq vRS is ŠKODA’s first SUV to be available in a metallic Race Blue finish. Furthermore, the SUV is the first model to use the new vRS logo, with its red ‘v’ on the grille and tailgate.

Redesigned front and rear bumpers
ŠKODA has developed new bumpers exclusively for the Kodiaq vRS. At the front, the car’s self-assured appearance is emphasised by the crystalline-look, full-LED headlights – which also come as standard. A reflector extending across the entire width of the vehicle is integrated into the rear bumper – a distinguishing feature of all ŠKODA vRS models. The exhaust system’s two striking tailpipes are clearly visible below the rear bumper.

20-inch Xtreme alloy wheels as standard
The Kodiaq vRS includes anthracite-coloured 20-inch Xtreme alloy wheels, highlighting the SUV’s dynamic driving potential. Clearly visible behind these are 17-inch brake discs gripped by bright red brake callipers designed for extraordinary driving performance.

With the Kodiaq vRS, ŠKODA is transferring the design language of its sporty models into the SUV segment for the first time, thereby creating a unique product identity. The dynamic, top-of-the-range Kodiaq will be introduced to the public at the 2018 Paris Motor Show in October.
