New ŠKODA Kodiaq RS – Set the pace

ŠKODA’s first high-performance SUV brings its dynamic ambitions to the fore with plenty of black accents – its striking radiator grille, its roof rails, window frames and wing mirrors all come in high-gloss black.

The rear is shaped by two visible tailpipes below the bumper and a reflector that extends across the entire width of the car – the distinguishing feature of all ŠKODA RS models.

Glossy black grille

The fascia is dominated by the radiator grille, its slats and frame in a glossy black finish. It is embellished with the new RS logo, differing from previous versions because of its red “V”, which stands for “victory”.

Full LED headlights and front spoiler

Standard-fit full LED headlamps with a distinctive strip for daytime running lights lend the Kodiaq RS its characteristic look. The body-colour front bumper, specific to the Kodiaq RS, rounds off the robust impression of the fascia.

20″ Xtreme alloy wheels

The Kodiaq RS features standard-fit anthracite 20” Xtreme alloy wheels, capping off the car’s dynamic design. The sporty look of the wheels is complemented by performance tyres to ensure excellent handling. The red brake callipers are a typical hallmark of RS models.

Details not to miss

Much like war paint, the black features on the Kodiaq RS show that it is ready for anything. Whatever the body colour, it is complemented by glossy black details: side-window trim, longitudinal roof rails, and wing mirror covers.

Sporty rear

The rear section with LED tail lights immediately defines the sporty characteristics of the ŠKODA Kodiaq RS. A powerful black diffuser and two wide, trapezoidal chrome-plated tailpipes dominate the bumper. Other bespoke details are a retroreflector strip, making the car easy to spot in the dark, and the RS logo.

Ready, sit, go!

The Kodiaq RS effortlessly combines sporty accessories with the luxurious interior of an SUV. If you’re on a long journey enjoying all the car’s creature comforts, whenever you want you can let your hair down in an instant – you have everything you need to take the vehicle through its paces on the country roads.

Virtual cockpit with sports steering wheel

A perfect overview is provided by the Virtual Cockpit, featuring a handsome 10.25” digital display that offers a choice of five display layouts, including a Sport display. One of the RS’s specialities is its Carbon look, which changes the font and layout background. The sporty 3-spoke multifunction steering wheel with perforated leather and RS logo is a standard feature.

Alcantara sports seats

In order to complete the driving experience in a sports car, you need proper sports seats. The KODIAQ RS has plenty to be proud of here: two robust Alcantara seats with distinctive lateral support will hug you firmly. Contrasting red stitching and the RS logo match the rest of the interior.

RS gear knob

Besides the steering wheel, the gearshift knob is also upholstered in leather. Unique features are the high-contrast red stitching and the model’s specific RS logo.

Stainless steel pedals

Stainless steel pedals play an important role in making the car’s interior sportier. They make the driver’s foot well more interesting optically and their silver colour matches the other chromed interior elements. They are fitted with rubber spots, so your foot never slips.

Alcantara door panels

When you sit down, fine-quality materials will surround you from all sides. The Alcantara in the door panels is complemented by a red-stitched armrest and ambient lighting, offering a choice of 10 colours.

Door sill plates

With their stainless steel embossing and Kodiaq inscription, the front door sill plates further refine the interior of the Kodiaq RS and protect the door sills as you get in.

Thrilling performance

A Kodiak boasts an innate combination of power and speed – the sporty Kodiaq RS is no exception. Its confidence and performance whatever the situation will give you a sense of security while delivering an exciting driving experience.

The most powerful diesel engine

The Kodiaq RS features the most powerful diesel engine in the ŠKODA range: the twin-turbocharged 2.0 TDI/176 kW with a maximum torque of 500 Nm. The advantages of a twin-turbo setup are the strong boost from the middle speed range and the instantaneous accelerator response. And courtesy of the car’s Dynamic Sound Boost, you’ll enjoy an even earthier engine sound.

Progressive steering

The car can be fitted with progressive steering, which provides the Kodiaq RS with better handling and agility in curves. The progressive steering changes the ratio depending on how far the wheel is turned so that you don’t have to keep shuffling your hands round the steering wheel. This makes it easier to manoeuvre on twisty roads, in city traffic or when parking.

Connectivity for everyday rush

The ŠKODA Kodiaq RS brings a whole new dimension to the link between your mobile devices and the car. Be online even when driving, control your car remotely, and enjoy modern conveniences.

Area view

Want to know exactly what’s happening around the car? The Area View system displays, on an onboard monitor, several different angles around the vehicle, captured with the wide-angle lenses of cameras mounted at the front and rear and on the wing-mirror covers.

Trailer assist

Want to buy a new caravan, but reversing it is the stuff of nightmares? The new optional Trailer Assist takes control when you reverse slowly with a caravan. All you have to do is decide where to reverse to, when to start and when to stop. A cinch.

Rear traffic alert

When reversing out of parking bays, Rear Traffic Alert recognises vehicles approaching from the sides. An acoustic signal warns of an impending collision. The “critical side” is shown first in yellow and then in red on the infotainment display. The brakes are applied automatically if necessary.

Adaptive cruise control

The Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) maintains a safe distance from the vehicle ahead at a selected speed, controlling the engine and actuating the brakes to automatically accelerate or decelerate as needed. The system combines the cruise control system with a radar-based distance controller.

Front Assist

The Front Assist is a collision-alert safety system. Faced with an unavoidable collision, it applies the brakes to minimise the consequences. Front Assist works with a radar sensor integrated into the radiator grille, constantly monitoring the distance from the traffic ahead.

Blind spot detect

Blind Spot Detect helps the driver to change lanes safely by registering any vehicles in the blind spot. Two radar sensors located in the lower part of the rear bumper monitor the area beside and up to 20 metres behind the ŠKODA Kodiaq.
