Czech brand engineers started testing the updated Skoda Kodiaq crossover. Journalists managed to capture the car for the first time. On the official presentation of the machine so far nothing is known.

The updated version of the flagship crossover of the Czech brand was tested for the first time – the corresponding “spy” photos of the prototype were published by foreign publications a few minutes ago. It seems that we are dealing with a version of the Sportline, judging by the same icon on the front fender, as well as the design of the alloy wheels.

Despite the fact that in front of the test sample quite a lot of camouflage, you can already see the new design of the bumper. As well as the updated Superb flagship, the Kodiaq 7-seater crossover will receive matrix LED headlights.

 The shape of the main optics clusters is unlikely to change very much, considering how similar elements of the Superb model were largely transferred from the old version of the model. To the disappointment of some people, it seems that the installation of two-level headlamps will continue in the second half of the Kodiaq life cycle.

  With the wires sticking out of the back of the prototype and going into something like a trailer, we get the feeling that the new Kodiaq was towing a dynamometer. If our assumption is correct, it means that Skoda is testing a new power unit. Looking at the changes that Superb has undergone, the Kodiaq model is expected to receive the 2.0 TDI (diesel), which first appeared on the new VW Passat.

  The biggest change will be the emergence of a plug-in hybrid installation, also inherited from the flagship VW sedan in the GTE version. This engine will combine a 1.4-liter four-cylinder TSI gasoline with an electric motor, six-speed DSG and 13 kWh rechargeable batteries. The internal combustion engine will develop power of 156 hp. The total power is 218 hp

Not so long ago, we wrote that the company Skoda announced the launch of the production of the updated Superb.
