2020 Skoda Kodiaq RS

2020 Skoda Kodiaq RS

So, in the Skoda stable you can get yourself into the Kodiaq SUV, a roomy, comfortable SUV with AWD and plenty of grunt.  Up and till now you could get the standard Kodiaq and the Sportline Kodiaq.  However, in 2020 we are getting the Kodiaq in RS form, and that means an AWD SUV with some serious grunt.

A walk around the Skoda Kodiaq RS gives little away that underneath the bonnet lies a mountain of an engine.  It has similar styling to the Sportline model, except there are a few exterior features that suggest that this model has a few more herbs under the bonnet.  The slightly sportier bumpers give it more presence; then there are the huge 20-inch alloy wheels and red brake callipers which look amazing – along with the big twin exhaust outlets.  One other subtle giveaway is the RS badging which suggests that this Kodiaq has much longer legs.  You’ll find the RS badging front and rear on the outside, but you’ll also see when you climb inside the new Skoda Kodiaq RS the Alcantara sports seats boast RS badging, RS stitching on the door cards and Skoda’s Virtual Cockpit digital instrument binnacle included, as standard, digital dials with unique RS graphics.

Another feature that the new Skoda Kodiaq RS has that sets it apart from its siblings is adaptive dampering which can be switched to stiffen or to soften the suspension.  So, when you do select the sportier mode, yes, the steering, suspension and engine all respond quicker, but there is also a dynamic sound booster that creates a sportier noise inside and outside the Kodiaq RS SUV to let everyone know that the drive has just gotten electrifying.

Any standard Skoda Kodiaq has impressive space and versatility, and it’s an SUV that delivers on essential things like practicality, refinement, safety and comfort.  It’s a well-equipped SUV in its own right.  So what you get when you slip into an RS Kodiaq is all the same Kodiaq particulars but with a whole lot more grunt and driving excitement.  The KODIAQ RS is powered by a compelling 176 kW, 2.0-litre, bi-turbo diesel engine that is capable of a 0-100 km/h sprint that can be completed in just seven seconds.  The engine also packs a hefty 500 Nm of torque, and it’s this flow of pulling power that is addictive and useful for quick passing, and even for tasks like towing the boat.  The complete set-up includes a bi-turbo diesel, AWD and a seven-speed automatic gearbox that boasts launch control as a standard feature.  Capable of high speeds up to 220 km/h and returning around 6.5 litres/100 km is impressive stuff, perhaps figures you’d accredit with a Coupe than you would to a diesel-powered family SUV.

2020 Skoda Kodiaq RS Twin-Turbo Diesel

The new Skoda Kodiaq RS has massive torque delivery from the twin-turbo diesel engine, and it means that you can blast past slower traffic or up hills without the sports automatic gearbox having to change down too often at all.  It’s a lovely torquey beast!  The Kodaiq RS’s AWD grip is great in all-weathers, and you can even get down and dirty off the tarmac, too.  There is a decent amount of ground clearance to have some fun off-road or to go exploring down a mysterious gravel track.

A new Skoda Kodiaq RS is well kitted out with all the latest infotainment and luxury features, active cruise control and other important safety equipment.  But there is also plenty of optional gear like a heated steering wheel, a heated windscreen, a tow bar, blind spot monitoring and lane assist, rear window blinds and an electronic child lock.  These are just some of the things you might like to select for you very own new 2020 Skoda Kodiaq RS.

Buy a new Skoda Kodiaq RS and you’ll be setting yourself up nicely for 2020; driving a stylish, eye-catching, sleek performance SUV for a whole lot less money than you would otherwise have to pay for an Audi, Jaguar, BMW or Mercedes Benz equivalent.
