New Skoda Kodiaq RS in pictures

New Skoda Kodiaq RS in pictures

The Kodiaq RS is Skoda’s first performance SUV from the Czech automaker’s vRS family. The sporty model is powered by the most powerful diesel engine that Skoda has ever made and with a lap time of 9 minutes 29.84 seconds on Nurburgring’s Nordschleife circuit, it is safe to say that it’s brisk. Here’s a brief look at the all-new Kodiaq RS. 

On the outside, you get 20-inch alloy wheels as standard. Furthermore, the range of standard equipment includes full-LED headlights and LED tail lights. Selected body elements in gloss black underpin the sporty appearance of the Kodiaq RS.

Developing 240bhp and maximum torque of 500Nm, the 2-litre diesel engine is the most powerful diesel engine used in a Skoda production vehicle to date. This is because of its two-stage biturbo technology. The 2-litre engine features two complementary turbochargers connected in series. 

The first is a high-pressure exhaust gas turbocharger with a small turbine which allows for an immediate response, even at lower engine speeds. The second turbo is a low-pressure charger which achieves a higher boost pressure of up to 3.8 bar at high engine speeds.

Thanks to the biturbo technology, the maximum torque is delivered between 1,750 and 2,500 rpm. This allows the all-wheel-drive SUV to accelerate from 0 to 100 kmph in 6.9 seconds and achieve a top speed of 221 kmph.

Power is transferred variably to all four wheels via a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission (DSG). The settings for the dampers are automatically adjusted to suit the driving conditions or the respective terrain using Dynamic Chassis Control, which also comes as standard.

The standard equipment includes the removable and retractable boot cover and boot nets. Classics such as the umbrella compartment in the front door and ice scraper in the fuel filler flap (for selected countries) are also standard, as is a ticket holder on the A-pillar on the driver's side. The virtual pedal electric tailgate including tip-to-close function and the removable LED torch in the boot are available as an option.

The Kodiaq RS is now available on sale in Europe. Sadly, Skoda India will continue with the standard 150bhp version of the Kodiaq for sale locally. There are no plans to introduce this hot version of the SUV here in the Indian market.
