ŠKODA KODIAQ RS does Arctic Circle Ice Challenge

ŠKODA KODIAQ RS does Arctic Circle Ice Challenge

ICE CHALLENGE: THE ŠKODA KODIAQ RS AND THE ARCTIC CIRCLE


One car. 1,417 kilometres without an inch of dry tarmac in sight. The Arctic Circle. 24 hours. The ŠKODA KODIAQ RS does the Ice Challenge.


ŠKODA Italia decided to put the abilities of the sporty KODIAQ RS SUV to an extreme test. Boasting a 240 PS engine and all-wheel drive, how will the KODIAQ RS stand up to polar conditions – icy surfaces, temperatures of around -20 °C, and a strong headwind?

The KODIAQ RS, like all other versions of the model, is a vehicle guaranteeing a safe ride on unpaved surfaces. That’s how the idea came about to test the KODIAQ RS in extreme conditions by packing it off on an adventurous drive across the Arctic Circle from Rovaniemi in Finland to North Cape (Nordkapp) in Norway and back again.


The challenge required the entire distance to be covered in fewer than 24 hours, with just one concession for the vehicle: studded tyres, which are mandatory in extreme conditions.
