- The high-performance Kodiaq has been spotted at the ‘Nurburgring.
- It will use the same 2.0-litre from Passat making 237bhp.
- The performance SUV might be offered with four-wheel drive and DCT automatic transmission.
Skoda has officially teased the forthcoming performance derivative of their Kodiaq SUV. The Kodiaq RS has been spotted on the Nurburgring already and the Czech carmaker has captioned the teaser image saying the model is “getting familiar with the testing road at Nurburgring!”
The Kodiaq RS will be powered by Volkswagen Group’s twin-turbocharged 2.0-litre BiTDI turbo-diesel from the Passat sedan. The motor produces 237bhp of power at 4,000 rpm and a massive 500Nm of torque from 1,750 rpm. The power figures will reportedly takepull the SUV to a 100kmph from standstill in just 6.1 seconds. The performance SUV will surely have a four-wheel-drive layout with an automatic DCT.
We expect the Kodiaq RS to adopt a sportier styling with an aggressive body kit. The revised bumpers, both fore and aft with side skirts, will make the Kodiaq look sporty. The SUV will also sit on a larger set of wheels. On the inside, there will be sport-seats with vRS monikers, all-black theme cabin with contrast red-stitching and a sporty steering wheel.
Skoda will reportedly launch debut the Kodiaq RS during the 2018 Paris Motor Show at the beginning of October.
