The first crossover brand Skoda appeared in 2009. For its life cycle, the Yeti model, withdrawn from production in 2017, sold out in 684.5 thousand copies. In place of Yeti came the crossover Karoq, whose global sales at the moment amounted to 87.8 thousand units. In addition, the all-road line of Skoda has a seven-seat crossover Kodiaq, which was delivered to 215.7 thousand customers. Finally, in the Chinese market is sold a compact SUV called Kamiq, which was issued 12 thousand orders.
Skoda produces crossovers in the Czech Republic, China and Russia. In 2019, the line will be replenished with a serial electric all-terrain vehicle, which will be made based on the concept car Vision X, shown in the spring at the Geneva Motor Show.
Finally, in October, debut the first full-fledged sports cross-country Kodiaq with the prefix RS in the title, which will equip a 240-horsepower two-liter turbo. The novelty has already established the record of the “Northern loop” of the Nürburgring among cars with a seven-seat saloon.
