The Škoda Kodiaq is a mid size SUV,[2] manufactured by the Czech automaker Škoda Auto.[3] The vehicle is based on VW Group's modular MQB platform, shared with a new generation of Volkswagen Tiguan and the SEAT Ateca, however the Kodiaq is longer than Tiguan, and comes in a seven seat version.

Overview[edit]

Earlier, it was assumed that the new SUV would be called "Snowman" or "Polar", but this has been rejected by the former head of Škoda (Vahland) as a media speculation. On 23 December 2015, Škoda registered the name "Kodiaq", the name refers to the largest brown bear, the Kodiak bear.[4][5]

In February 2016, images of the Vision S concept were released,[6] and the concept model appeared in March 2016 at the Geneva Motor Show.[7][8] The final SUV was introduced at the Paris Motor Show on 29 September 2016.[9][10] The first cars were officially delivered to customers in February 2017.

As part of its marketing campaign, the Kodiak town on the Alaskan island was renamed Kodiaq for one day.[11]

The Kodiaq is the first vehicle in the Škoda lineup to have Area View, Tow Assist, Manoeuvre Assist and Predictive Pedestrian Protection.[12] It is also the first vehicle in the VAG MQB platform lineup to feature capacitive shortcut buttons instead of the physical buttons for the 8" infotainment systems.

Selected acknowledgements[edit]

In November 2016, the Škoda Kodiaq was named the "Best Family Car in the World" by Top Gear Magazine.[13] Kodiaq won the title of the Car of the Year 2017 in the Czech Republic, Poland and Bulgaria, the SUV of the Year in China and France, and the all wheel drive car in Germany.[14]

The Kodiaq also won in German magazine competition Auto Test for 2017, and is the winner of competitions in British magazines Auto Express and What Car? for 2017.[14][15] The Kodiaq also received the Red Dot Design Award for 2017.[16]
