The all-new ŠKODA KODIAQ was revealed to the world for the very first time in Berlin on the 1 September. The much anticipated addition to the ŠKODA range received a great reception
The ŠKODA KODIAQ aims to impress: the wide, three-dimensional radiator grille gives the KODIAQ
a striking presence.
In combination with the narrow, raked headlights, which are available with full-LED technology for the first time, our first large SUV will be instantly recognisable on the road. The side and rear views are sharp and the tailgate is expressively sculptured. The rear lights, with LED technology as standard, shine in the typical ŠKODA C-shape.

The exterior design of the ŠKODA VisionS reflects the brand’s new emotional appeal. All the edges and lines are clear, precise and sharp, while crystalline design elements accentuate the exterior. The interplay of light and shadow creates powerful effects on the strikingly chiselled surfaces.
At the front the bonnet relies on the creative use of plastics, with contours flowing towards the brand logo. The wide grille and four tapered, high-set LED headlights characterise the face of the show car, emphasising the vehicle’s SUV character. Crystalline elements in the vertical struts in the grille and on the logo are ŠKODA’s tribute to the Czech art of crystal-glass design.
The side view also illustrates the strong SUV character of ŠKODA’s VisionS with sharp tornado line spanning the entire length of the powerful car body. Angular wheel arches emphasise the off-road character and the upper-shoulder contour forms a deep groove over the sills. The quickly sloping roofline with the long spoiler and tapered rear visually accelerate the show car even when stationary.
The rear of ŠKODA’s VisionS has been sculpturally designed with a strong diffuser insert bordering the large exhaust pipes, giving the large SUV a visually powerful stance. The ŠKODA logo and shallow rear lights with dynamically cut crystalline housings sit just beneath the low rear window, while ŠKODA’s characteristic C-arm, beginning at the rear lights, runs into the flat reflectors in the bumper.
