Mladá Boleslav / Frankfurt, 11 September 2017 – With the ŠKODA KODIAQ SPORTLINE, the Czech manufacturer presents a particularly dynamic variant of the large SUV. The exterior and interior are both characterised by features, specially designed for this sporty model. There is a choice of eight engine-gearbox combinations available for the ŠKODA KODIAQ SPORTLINE: based on two TSI petrol engines and two TDI diesel engines ranging from 110 kW (150 PS) to 140 kW (190 PS).
The individual design of the ŠKODA KODIAQ SPORTLINE’s exterior and interior emphasises the agility and dynamism of the new model variant above all else. The interior offers a multitude of new details and features such as the sports seats with Alcantara® covers.
The radiator grille, wing mirror housings and side window trims of the ŠKODA KODIAQ SPORTLINE all come in black. The SUV stands out due to the black design elements in the lower section of the front bumper. The rear is enhanced by a thin, silver-coloured trim below the bumper. The rear window and rear side windows are tinted (Sunset).
The protective side trims of the ŠKODA KODIAQ SPORTLINE are body-coloured and offset in black in the lower section. It comes with redesigned 19-inch alloy wheels as standard, with 20-inch wheels also available as an option. Furthermore, it bears small badges with the model designation on the front wings as well as on the glove compartment.

The ŠKODA KODIAQ SPORTLINE is based on the Ambition trim level. The new sports seats on the driver’s and front passenger’s side (electronically adjustable including memory function) come across as highly elegant with Alcantara® covers and silver-coloured stitching. The seats guarantee good lateral support even on fast bends. Silver-coloured stitching can also be seen on the gearstick as well as on the multifunction leather steering wheel, which is also equipped with steering wheel paddles in conjunction with the DSG transmission. The sporty character is further underlined by the black roof lining and stainless steel pedals as well as the visual representation of the G-forces, turbocharging pressure, the current engine output, and the temperature of the oil and coolant on the display.
Driving Mode Select (Eco, Normal, Sport, Individual), which controls the engine, automatic transmission, power steering and air conditioning, also comes as standard. Additionally, the Snow mode, which makes driving on snow and slippery terrain easier, is available for ŠKODA KODIAQs with all-wheel drive. The sporty, elegant ambience is emphasised by additional standard equipment. These include: LED ambient lighting for the interior which can be set to one of ten colours, a ‘Sport’-design interior with the dashboard and door trims in a carbon design. The doors with Alcantara® inserts come across as very luxurious .Another equipment elements are 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), a rear-view mirror with rain sensor and dip function, the KODIAQ logo in the front and rear door sills, and floor mats with black-coloured stitching.

Front- and all-wheel drive
The ŠKODA KODIAQ SPORTLINE is available with front- and all-wheel drive. The all-wheel-drive system, which comes as standard with the most powerful petrol and diesel engines, 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 fuel-economical way mainly to the front wheels.
Adaptive Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC) is available as an option for the ŠKODA KODIAQ SPORTLINE. DCC consists of electronically regulated dampers, the characteristics of which 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 21.3 degrees; the approach and departure angles are an impressive 18.9 and 23.3 degrees respectively 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 the windows and 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 is consistent with the regular ŠKODA KODIAQ one. The Area-View system is highly useful: 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 of 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 basic model. 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 (optional). In addition, the ŠKODA KODIAQ SPORTLINE features a screen specially displaying the oil and coolant temperature, the G-forces, turbocharging pressure, engine power and time measurement with the help of the Lap-Timer. 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.
