New 2024 Skoda Kodiaq ramps price up to £36,645

New 2024 Skoda Kodiaq ramps price up to £36,645


The entry-level 1.5-litre petrol engine, driving the front wheels, is equipped with 48V mild-hybrid technology – another first for the Kodiaq – and cylinder-deactivation technology for reduced consumption while cruising. Skoda has yet to reveal any official MPG or emissions figures, however. 

The more potent 2.0-litre petrol and 2.0-litre diesel engines drive through a seven-speed gearbox, and the most powerful of each comes as standard with four-wheel drive. There is no word yet on plans for a hot Kodiaq vRS range-topper, but notably the closely related Tiguan is available with a 261bhp 4WD PHEV powertrain, which could feasibly be deployed in the new Kodiaq.

For the time being, the Kodiaq range is topped by the performance-inspired Sportline, which is marked out by its black exterior and interior trim elements, colour-coded lower bodywork and bespoke alloy wheel designs.

It comes as standard with a raft of equipment that’s optional further down the line-up, including the Kodiaq’s new Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC) suspension control package, which features twin-valve dampers for improved dynamics and refinement, and has a wide range of available suspension modes.

Even the most iconic movie trilogies (The Godfather, The Dark Knight) tend to run out of puff by the third instalment. But it’s different with Skoda SUVs.

The Czech maker released a strong three-part series, with the Kodiaq being the equivalent of a great debut movie, followed by the highly successful Karoq and Kamiq.

Now, the firm is focusing its efforts back where it all started and a new Kodiaq will land in the first quarter of 2024. The second-generation large SUV will continue to share parts with other Volkswagen Group models, including the VW Tiguan, and it will still offer up to seven seats.

Prices, trim levels and equipment will be confirmed towards the end of this year, but the choice of a standard Kodiaq and a sportier-looking Sportline version remains.
