The Czech carmaker, Skoda has unveiled the Kodiaq GT ahead of its debut at Guangzhou Auto Show. The Kodiaq GT which has been revealed is a China-bound car. The Kodiaq GT is the fourth and flagship SUV of China. China is the only country where the Czech carmaker has launched Kamiq, Karoq, Kodiaq and Kodiaq GT.
The Kodiaq GT is based on the standard Kodiaq but it is the sloping roofline that gives the SUV a sporty appeal. The front of the car remains the same as the standard Kodiaq. It is the rear and the side silhouette which differentiates the Kodiaq GT. The rear gets an angular tailgate and the two exhaust pipes are housed inside the bumper. The car has a very good departure angle.
On the inside, we expect good quality interiors and top-notch fit and finish as this SUV is the flagship model. The car will get a WiFi access, MirrorLink, Apple CarPlay and Baidu’s Carlife connectivity features. The SUV has a host of safety features like Front Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, Blind Spot Detection and a stop-go function.
The Kodiaq GT will be offered with a 2.0-litre TSI petrol engine that will be tuned in two states, one to produce 183 HP and other for 217 HP. The powerful 217 HP variant will be an AWD and will come with a 7-speed DSG as standard while the 183 HP variant will be a front wheel drive SUV. However, the chances of Skoda to bring this SUV to India is still under covers.
