Skoda Kodiaq RS completely declassified the day before the debutOctober 1, 2018
The company Skoda this year seriously approached the participation in the Paris Motor Show, which will open its doors tomorrow. One of the main exhibits will be a “charged” seven-seat crossover, but now the model is completely declassified in leaked photos.
The official photos of the yet unrepresented “charged” crossover Skoda Kodiaq RS leaked into the network. The ceremonial public debut is scheduled for October 2 at the opening of the Paris Motor Show. Previously, we could observe the car only through an aggressive teaser campaign, which showed us the details of the design, the exterior sketches and the photographs of the cabin.
It is not yet known how exactly the official images of the future model appeared on the Web, but this is not so important. We can see a full-length crossover with its new RS logo, 20-inch alloy wheels, and a new exhaust system.

To be frank, we expected to see something more aggressive, and almost got Kodiaq Sportline. However, you should not be upset about the first impression, because the RS version is not so much about aesthetics, as about technical changes.
A special feature of the crossover will be a new 2.0-liter turbodiesel, capable of developing up to 236 horsepower. This power unit will be the most powerful diesel engine in the company’s history. Also, the model received a modified brake system with larger discs and more powerful calipers.
“Charged” Skoda Kodiaq RS will also receive an extended list of additional equipment, ranging from fully LED optics, and ending with a digital instrument panel already in standard equipment. In addition, the model, also for the first time in the history of the company, will receive the Dynamic Sound Boost system, which is a synthesizer sound engine, improving the feeling of driving.
The debut will take place tomorrow, but as it became known, the Czech company is already organizing a preview of the seven-seater crossover at the German Nürburgring.
