This is the Skoda Kodiaq GT – a sleeker version of the flagship Czech SUV with a coupé-like roofline. Don’t head to your nearest dealership just yet, though, because the GT is also the first Skoda model to be exclusively sold in China. From the front you would be hard-pressed to tell the GT apart from the five- and seven-seater, but the sloping roof and short C-pillar give the GT a sporty look missing from the standard SUV.
The new ŠKODA Kodiaq GT was presented to the public for the first time at Auto Guangzhou in China (16-26 November 2018). The Czech brand’s first SUV coupé is the new standard bearer in China with its strong and dynamic appearance, state-of-the-art connectivity and innovative assistance systems.
A range-topping Kodiaq Laurin & Klement is now available to order in the UK, with prices starting at £35,945 for the 148bhp 2.0-litre TDI 4x4 manual. A DSG automatic transmission is available for £1,300, while the more powerful 188bhp edition of the engine costs £38,105. All models feature four-wheel-drive and come fitted with seven seats. Designed to sit above the Edition model that has been the flagship up until now, the new L&K model is designed to honour the company’s founders, Václav Laurin and Václav Klement.
