Škoda introduces new engines with latest Kodiaq L&K
A 1.5-litre 148bhp has been added to the line-up, as well as a power increase for the 2.0 TSI from 178 to 187bhp. In addition, also making their debut are the latest generation 7-speed DSG for petrol engines and the 2.0 TDI engine with 148bhp. Another 2.0 TDI with 187bhp completes the engine range.
The new petrol drivetrains feature particulate filters to reduce particulate emissions. Škoda said this will be available for all equipment versions of the Škoda Kodiaq in the future.
The two strongest engines come with 4×4 drive as standard, with Adaptive Chassis Control DCC (Dynamic Chassis Control) as an option. All-wheel drive remains optional for the less powerful engine variants.
The Laurin and Klement (L&K) equipment line includes a chrome grille, 19-inch alloy wheels and modified front and rear bumpers plus full LED headlights. The interior features black or beige leather upholstery and piano-black decorative trim.
The new Škoda Kodiaq L&K will be on display at the International Motor Show 2018 in Geneva.
