What's all this about?

Skoda is gearing up for the launch of its new SUV, named Kodiaq. The model will launch at the beginning of 2017 and is promised to deliver plenty of space and technology. This represents a new market segment for the brand and is designed to increase Skoda's market share around the world.

What do we know so far?

Overall length is 4.7 metres and the Kodiaq will be available in five- and seven-seat versions. The former will have a 2,065-litre luggage capacity, which Skoda describes as the best in its class. There are plenty of touches that owners should appreciate in day-to-day use too, such as door-edge protection that deploys automatically to avoid car park damage. A sleep comfort package is available with special head rests, which should allow passengers to rest on long trips.

How about the technology?

The infotainment system is the Volkswagen Group's second generation Modular Infotainment Matrix. On the top-of-the-range Columbus and Amundsen systems a Wi-Fi hotspot comes as standard; an LTE module is available as an optional extra for the Columbus system, which establishes an internet connection using the fastest mobile internet standard currently available. Skoda's mobile online services are compatible with LTE and are used to deliver information and navigation plus emergency and breakdown assistance.

Skoda has also fitted the Kodiaq with its latest driver aids including Area View, which displays the car's immediate surroundings on the touch screen monitor. There is a pedestrian protection function and Parking Distance Control that brakes automatically when an obstacle is detected.

And what's under the bonnet?

At launch there will be five engines: two diesel and three petrol. At the moment we only know that the most powerful petrol burner is the 2.0-litre TSI with 180hp. The range will include six-speed manual transmission and DSG automatic options as well as front- or four-wheel drive. Volkswagen Group's Driving Mode Select and Dynamic Chassis Control will be available, allowing the driver to adjust various aspects of the power delivery, steering and suspension to the terrain and weather conditions.
