The ŠKODA Kodiaq has wowed us since its arrival back in April and has proved to be a major competitor in the SUV market. The Kodiaq won the Auto Express & What Car? Best Large SUV of 2017 and we have no doubt that the Kodiaq Scout will be just as popular. The inspiration for the vehicle was taken from Kodiak bears, which led to the Kodiaq, best comes to life with the Scout version. Its robust body with protective plastic elements radiates wild beauty, toughness and a huge appetite for adventure.
ŠKODA continues to charge into the SUV segment with the All-New ŠKODA Kodiaq Scout. The seven seat Kodiaq Scout boasts a rugged and robust appearance yet it is complimented by intricate silver coloured design detailing comprising of underbody protection at the front and rear of the vehicle alongside 19-inch alloy wheels.
Customers will have a choice of two petrol and two diesel engines both of which are linked to all-wheel drive. This variant of the Kodiaq also features a small badge with the model designation on the front wing as-well as the glove compartment giving it those extra finishing touches.
The Kodiaq Scout is easily recognisable from the outside by its tinted rear and side windows along with the silver coloured details. Framed by a striking silver trim the radiator grille really stands out and catches your attention. Also complimenting the car is the wing mirror housing, roof rails, side window trims and the front and rear underbody protection all finished in silver to give the Kodiaq Scout that polished elegant look.
The All Wheel Drive system works quickly and effortlessly and has a control unit that is continually calculating the ideal driving torque for the rear axle, any loss of traction is eliminated thanks to a control system that is entirely dependent on the driving status. in normal driving conditions, the multi-plate clutch transfers the power from the engine in an efficient way mainly to the front wheels.
the Scout has a ground clearance of 194mm so can negotiate larger bumps with little effort. The driver can change to off-road mode simply with the press of a button. The ABS (anti-lock braking system) allows a certain amount of slip in order to create a wedge effect in front of the wheels.
To increase traction if off-road mode, anti-slip regulation controls the amount of slip and the electronic differential lock reacts even quicker than under normal driving conditions.
When they are needed the hill-hold control and hill-descent control functions are activated - the latter maintains the car's speed at the level at which the driver enters the slope.
With a huge choice of 15 colours to personalise your Kodiaq Scout, ranging from the beautiful Red Velvet Metallic through to striking Petrol Blue Metallic and elegant Black Magic Pearl Effect you really will stand out from the crowd.
