Despite the fact that this car is full of meaningless practicality, it looks great. Surely fans would have such a modification, but sales will not block even the development costs.

Design studio X-Tomi Design again decided to surprise us. This time, it was suggested to look at a Skoda pickup truck built on the basis of the “charged” version of the Kodiaq RS crossover. Unfortunately, the budget and affordable segment is very capricious, and here it is difficult to experiment – one mistake and even loyal customers will go to a competitor. Therefore, the appearance of such a version is not foreseen even in a theoretical perspective.

Kodiaq is a new model, especially with the RS index, which debuted only in October 2018. Under the hood is a 2.0-liter turbo engine capable of developing up to 240 horsepower and 500 Nm of torque. A seven-speed robotized transmission, as well as an all-wheel drive system, works in conjunction with it.

At the moment, Skoda is working on expanding its lineup. But talking about a pickup, especially on the basis of Kodiaq was not. In the near future, a Rapid receiver called Scala will be introduced. Work is also underway to expand the range of crossovers.

Meanwhile, the most “charged” Skoda Karoq RS will appear in 2019 with a price tag of less than 40,000 euros. This became known from the foreign edition of Auto Bild, citing its own sources.
