The company Skoda continues to expand the lineup of its largest crossover Kodiaq. Recently, a model of the Kodiaq Scout cross-country was introduced, and already after it a modification of the Sportline, which flaunts its sporty and bright appearance. The presentation took place in March at the Geneva Motor Show in 2017. It is known that the concern decided not to stop and will soon offer a charged version with an RS package, including a 240-hp 2.0 TDI bit-lit from VW Passat.

INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR DESIGN

In comparison with other versions of the family, the Sportline looks spectacular and sporty aggressively. The body was as much as possible “unloaded” from plastic linings, there was only a minimal protection on the front, rear bumpers and wheel arches. In black, the radiator grille, rear-view mirrors, edging of the side windows and rails are now painted. The front and rear bumpers got a new shape and are complemented by shiny black accents. It is interesting that the designers with the help of chrome made an imitation of exhaust pipes, although in reality the exhaust is located under the bottom of the car.

In the basic version, the Sportline is equipped with an Ambition version, which is the average for the regular version of the Kodiak. But there are a number of differences, for example, in the “sports” version, front seats with more developed lateral support are installed and trimmed with alcantara with a silver thread. The leather is trimmed with a handle and a redesigned steering wheel, the pedals now have aluminum pads. Another interesting solution is the exterior mirrors in which a light source is directed downward to illuminate the space when landing and disembarking from the car. As standard, the Sportline includes LED interior lighting (10 colors), a multifunction display Maxi DOT in the instrument cluster, side mirrors with electric adjustment and folding, a driving control system Driving Mode Select with options for Eco, Comfort, Normal, Sport, Individual, Snow.
