Skoda Kodiaq, the new mahine in town

Skoda Kodiaq was presented to the world when it was unveiled at Berlin. The design of the Kodiaq is edgy and three-dimensional. The SUV was designed by Jozef Kaban, Head of Design, Skoda Auto, and his team. The idea was to use clean, precise lines so as to keep the presence to a maximum. Also the crystalline structure of the bold front grille is homage of sorts to the brilliant Czech crystal glass art, which is also a tradition of sorts. The elegant headlamps are all LED, a first for a Skoda model as well.

Skoda Kodiaq was presented to the world when it was unveiled at Berlin. This is the company’s first full-size SUV, and given Skoda’s enviable rep for class-leading space and sheer usefulness, you may wonder what took them so long. It’s 4.7m long, is available with three rows of seats, and lifts a load of tech and connectivity from the class above. Also the crystalline structure of the bold front grille is homage of sorts to the brilliant Czech crystal glass art, which is also a tradition of sorts. The elegant headlamps are all LED, a first for a Skoda model as well.
