Skoda Kodiaq Scout goes on sale
Skoda has opened order books for the new Scout version of its Kodiaq seven-seater SUV.
Debuted earlier this year at the Geneva Motor Show, the Scout model provides offroad styling and four-wheel drive as standard.
Priced from £32,330 and positioned between the SE L and Edition models, the Scout brings exterior features including 19-inch alloys, bespoke Scout off-road front and rear bumpers, a rear diffuser and Scout badging. It also features an engine guard and underbody stone guard.
Inside, the Scout gains Alcantara trimmed seats and door panels, along with wood finish dashboard and door inserts, aluminium trimmed pedals and LED ambient lighting.
