News:  ŠKODA KODIAQ SUV on Irish forecourts in March 2107

The new ŠKODA KODIAQ, 7-seat SUV, based on the VisionS concept shown at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, will arrive in Ireland in March 2017.

Running on the VW Group MQB platform, the KODIAQ is 4.70 meters long and offers good internal space, a decent boot, with a volume of up to 2,065 litres.

The KODIAQ is named after the Kodiak bear that lives on Kodiaq Island off the southern coast of Alaska, so one can expect this particular Czech to deliver on its promises. It has split folding and length adjustable rear seats as standard, the optional third row of seats, a door-edge protection system, electric child safety locks, plus what the Superb model has provided us with for years - ŠKODA umbrellas fitted into the front door pockets from the mid-spec Ambition model.

Techies are well catered for with the KODIAQ, with ŠKODA Connect mobile online services, which provides additional online Infotainment services and navigation in real time, while also providing remote access for increased connectivity and driver assistance. One such driver assistance feature is the Emergency Call (e-Call) function, which will automatically call the emergency services once an airbag is activated to ensure occupant safety.

Irish pricing and specification has yet to be confirmed, but the new KODIAQ will feature as standard; 17” alloys and Cruise Control on the entry Active trim level; 18” alloys, front & rear parking sensors and 3-Zone Climatronic air-conditioning on the mid-spec Ambition trim level and 19” Alloy Wheels, LED headlights and Leather upholstery available as standard on the Style trim level.

An expected 1,000 new KODIAQ models will be sold here in Ireland in 2017 and with demand across Europe set to outweigh the available supply early in the New Year, early ordering is advised to avoid disappointment.
