Milton Keynes, 05 December 2017: First unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year, the SportLine model has been created to appeal to drivers who like the dynamic look of ŠKODA’s performance models, but require the practicality of a full-size SUV with the ability to carry up to seven passengers.
Available to order from 5 December, the new SportLine models are priced from £32,685 and are positioned between the SE L and Edition models in the expanded line-up. In keeping with other SportLine models in the ŠKODA range, the Kodiaq version features a full design package that includes 20-inch Vega Anthracite alloy wheels, deeper front and rear sport bumpers. The exterior design package is completed with a number of additional black details, including the radiator grille, roof rails, door mirror housings and side window trims.
Inside, the Kodiaq SportLine gains a leather sports steering wheel, carbon effect dashboard and door inserts, along with Alcantara-trimmed sports bucket seats and door panels. An LED interior lighting pack, SportLine plaque and black trim complete the interior design package.
The Kodiaq SportLine is available with four engines; two petrol and two diesel, with power outputs ranging from 150PS to 190PS. All four are equipped with ŠKODA’s acclaimed four-wheel drive transmission as standard, with DSG gearbox fitted as standard on the 2.0 TSI 180PS and 2.0 TDI 190PS. Both the 1.4 TSI 150PS and 2.0 TDI 150PS engines are available with the choice of manual or DSG.
In terms of equipment, the SportLine models build on the already generously appointed SE L specification, and feature seven seats, Columbus infotainment system with 9.2" touchscreen display and integrated Wi-Fi, electrically operated boot and Drive mode select. Among the many features exclusive to the SportLine are a colour multifunction trip computer, front parking sensors and an electrically adjustable driver’s seat.
The first deliveries of the new Kodiaq SportLine are expected in February 2018.
