In a week’s time, the high-performance SUV will celebrate its world premiere at the 2018 Paris Motor Show. The latest addition to the Czech brand’s RS family combines a generous and flexible space as well as ŠKODA-typical practicality with a sporty interior.
The sports seats with integrated headrests, which come as standard in the ŠKODA KODIAQ RS, feature seat cushions and backrests wrapped in Alcantara – a material frequently used in motorsport. The contrasting stitching and red detailing with perforated Alcantara create visual highlights. The seats’ side bolsters are covered in carbon leather and, just like the central armrest and the armrests in the doors, bear red stitching.
Sports steering wheel with contrasting red stitching and new RS logo
The multifunction sports steering wheel features the RS logo and the contrasting red stitching. The door trims use black Alcantara; but in this case, the distinctive diamond cross pattern is rendered in black stitching. A carbon-look instrument panel, black roof liner and stainless steel pedal covers round off the sporting appearance of the ŠKODA KODIAQ RS. Of course, this high-performance SUV retains all the familiar qualities of the KODIAQ model series: plenty of space for five or seven people, a large luggage compartment and many of the brand’s typical Simply Clever ideas.
