POWER TO THE PEOPLE: PRICES AND SPECIFICATIONS ANNOUNCED FOR THE NEW KODIAQ vRS AS ORDER BOOKS OPEN

Added: 03 January 2019

Prices and final specification for the new Kodiaq vRS – the most powerful diesel production vRS model ever built by ŠKODA – have been confirmed. The brand’s first ever performance SUV will start from £42,870 OTR and comes with a comprehensive equipment list that befits its status as the new performance flagship of the ŠKODA range.

Unveiled at the Paris Motor Show earlier this year, the new Kodiaq vRS adds a dynamic new dimension to ŠKODA’s award-winning SUV range. Powered by a twin turbocharged 2.0 TDI engine, standard four-wheel-drive system and seven-speed DSG gearbox the Kodiaq vRS can sprint from 0-62mph in just 7.0 seconds and has a top speed of 136mph.

In keeping with all ŠKODA vRS models, the Kodiaq vRS delivers more than just straight-line performance. Its seven-seater layout means that the entire family can travel with space to spare, while its remarkably generous helping of standard equipment means that comfort and infotainment needs are met.

The Kodiaq vRS stands out from the crowd thanks to a striking design package that includes 20-inch Xtreme alloy wheels, gloss black finish on the grille and mirrors, dual exhaust pipes, vRS sports bumpers and trademark red brake calipers. Inside, the sporting flagship of the range features figure-hugging Alcantara-trimmed sports seats finished with contrast vRS stitching and logo, along with a black rooflining and vRS stitching for the door panels. The vRS is also the first ŠKODA to be offered with fully digital Virtual Cockpit display as standard. To reflect the car’s sporting nature, the Kodiaq vRS’s system includes a special Sport view that places the speedometer in the centre of the display. 

To ensure that the engine’s performance is delivered to the road as smoothly and effectively as possible, all Kodiaq vRS models are equipped with Dynamic Chassis Control and progressive steering as standard. Dynamic sound booster and front parking sensors are also standard fit.

Order books for the new Kodiaq vRS open on 3 January 2019, with first deliveries expected in the UK in early Spring. Images, video assets and further information are available on the ŠKODA UK media site - www.skodamedia.com.
