New sustainable Škoda Kodiaq continues with diesel power option

Škoda claims that the new second generation Kodiaq SUV takes sustainability and efficiency to the next level and comes with a new interior concept and diesel engine options. This new Kodiaq features a 13-inch infotainment display, new Škoda Smart Dials and a new range structure with design selections. Many new and improved assistance systems are featured, including the new turn and remote park assists.

The new Kodiaq has five drive options ranging in outputs from 110 kW (150 hp) to 150 kW (204 hp). The new Kodiaq will also be available with diesel and petrol engine options delivering outputs from 110 kW (150 hp) to 150 kW (204 hp). A new addition to the range is the Kodiaq’s first ever plug-in hybrid powertrain. It offers a system output of 142 kW (193 hp) and an all-electric range of more than 100 kilometres.

In addition, the 1.5 TSI with 110 kW {150 hp) marks the debut of mild-hybrid technology in the Kodiaq. The range topping 2.0 TDI diesel provides 142 kW (193 hp) via all-wheel drive. All Kodiaq models are fitted with the DSG automatic transmission, as standard.

The Kodiaq has been a success story in Ireland with over 11,000 customers since the model launched in 2017. The Kodiaq is sold exclusively as a seven-seat vehicle in Ireland.

The Kodiaq was Irelands best-selling medium/large SUV in 2022, the Kodiaq was Škoda’s best-selling model that year. Diesel is the powertrain of choice for 96% of Irish customers with the 4×4 power train finding less demand in line with recent milder winters. The new Kodiaq is expected to arrive in Ireland in May 2024. Prices will be available closer to launch.
