Mladá Boleslav, 13 September 2018 – ŠKODA is revealing several details about its new ŠKODA

KODIAQ RS ahead of the high-performance SUV’s official world premiere at the 2018 Paris

Motor Show in October. In a video, ŠKODA is offering a preview of the car’s full-LED

headlights, the Virtual Cockpit and the new Dynamic Sound Boost function, which accentuates

the dynamic character of the ŠKODA KODIAQ RS with a meaty and even sportier sound.

With the most powerful production diesel engine in ŠKODA history (176 kW, 240 PS), all-wheel drive

and adaptive suspension, the brand’s first high-performance SUV is strictly designed for sportiness.

This dynamism is emphasised by the crystalline-effect full-LED headlights, which come as standard,

and the typical ŠKODA design language. The video shows the optional metallic Race Blue finish,

which is available for the first time in a ŠKODA SUV.

New Sport layout for Virtual Cockpit

Standard equipment in the ŠKODA KODIAQ RS includes the individually adjustable Virtual Cockpit in

a carbon optic. ‘Sport’ is a fifth display layout which features the rev counter and speedo in the centre.

The KODIAQ RS is the first-ever ŠKODA model to offer Dynamic Sound Boost. This sophisticated

system uses the data from the car electronic board systems and varies and intensifies the sound of the

engine depending on the selected driving mode. This results in a captivating and emotive acoustic

experience, which makes the ŠKODA KODIAQ RS even more enjoyable to drive.

ŠKODA KODIAQ RS will be introduced to the public all over the world for the first time at the

2018 Paris Motor Show in October.
