Those in the United Kingdom may now order a new version of Skoda’s sports utility vehicle – the new Skoda Kodiaq Sportline. It will be slotted between SE L and Edition versions of the Kodiaq, and will have a starting price of £32,685 in the UK. It is now available to order, with first deliveries expected in February 2018.

As its name indicates, the Sportline trim just makes the Skoda Kodiaq look sportier. Featuring the same engine lineup as the Kodiaq, the Kodiaq Sportline is as powerful as its regular version. Most of the changes implemented involved sportier tweaks, although in terms of traction and safety performance the new Skoda Kodiaq is better because it comes standard with an all-wheel drive system. This technology allows the Kodiaq Sportline to be suitable even in rough terrain, a capability boosted by the fact that its ground clearance is higher than a regular Kodiaq (194 mm vs. 187 mm).

To differentiate the Kodiaq Sportline from the regular Kodiaq, the new version comes with a number of black design features -- grille, roof rails, wing mirror housings, and side window trims.

Skoda Kodiaq Coupe, 2 new SUVs are confirmed to roll out in China

In a leaked image following a presentation held in China, we learned that Czech automobile manufacturer Skoda will soon unveil 2 more new SUVs in China, resulting in a four-model lineup. Of the 4 rumored vehicles, one has been revealed to the public - the seven seat Kodiaq.

The Kodiaq model will possibly receive the coupe treatment, a roofline raked to the rear end will be expected. Even though it will likely affect the Kodiaq's trunk capacity, it shouldn't be a big deal since the space inside will compensate as the SUV's interior has a large space.

Also seen on the powerpoint presentation are 2 vehicle outlines labelled "Model Q" and "Model K". There's much speculation that Model Q is foreseen to be a 2nd-generation Yeti and will be possibly built bigger to become a real to life crossover. The all new Yeti is planned to be unveiled on the latter part of the year and will likely be premiered at Frankfurt Motor Show around September and will be put on sale before this year concludes.

When Skoda commenced its SUV campaign with the announcement of the new Skoda Kodiaq, not a few have wished that this vehicle would be available in an off-road version. Now, it seems the Czech carmaker has answered our prayers and responded by announcing the new Skoda Kodiaq Scout.

Even though Skoda flaunted the new Skoda Kodiaq as an SUV that could drive off the road with ease, there are reservations with the vehicle’s off-road capability simply because it is a front-wheel drive unit. While the new Skoda Kodiaq tries to impress SUV consumers with its distinctive design, practical intelligence and superior interior space, it seemingly lacks some ruggedness typically associated with off-road vehicles.

So, here comes the new Skoda Kodiaq Scout, which will be officially unveiled at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. As the recipient of the Scout designation, this version of the Skoda Kodiaq brings the SUV ability to a whole new level. It is now more capable of handling off-road drives and its ruggedness as well as practicality is also viable for an all-terrain drive. While the Skoda Kodiaq appears practically elegant and premium, the Skoda Kodiaq Scout has some ruggedness pounded into it – it looks more solid and ready to take both the road and beyond. Examples of this ruggedness include the silver-colored underbody protection both at the front and rear.
