After the Skoda Vision RS and the Skoda Kodiaq vRS, Skoda is now teasing the Skoda Kodiaq GT. This performance SUV is exclusive only for the People’s Republic of China. Skoda will market this as a premium performance oriented SUV in the country.
Skoda Kodiaq GT Design
Based on the sketches revealed, the car is a looker. It features a sloping roofline which extends behind the rear doors and merges into an angled tailgate. It also has a coupe stance to accentuate the sportier styling.
The sketches show that the rear end of the car gets the most changes. It has a modified rear bumper, lights and wheel arches. Also, the car sits on larger, exclusively designed alloy wheels to match the overall design theme. We can also see dual chrome exhaust pipes stand out in the rear section.
“The coupé-version of a large SUV is differentiated from the Kodiaq by its rear section. Behind the front doors, the roofline also gently slopes down, merging into an angled tailgate… the Kodiaq GT will serve as the new flagship model in China.”
The interiors, on the other hand, seems to remain the same for the most part. It gets sportier seats to show that it is a performance car you are sitting in. It gets the usual features like a touchscreen infotainment system.
There is not a lot of information revealed about what’s under the hood. But it most likely features an engine similar to the one in the Skoda Kodiaq vRS. All wheel drive will be probably be offered as an option. Also, all variants are expected to use a DSG seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
The Skoda Kodiaq GT is the second exclusive Skoda launched in China after the Kamiq, which is also an SUV. It will be priced higher than both the Kamiq and Karoq.
