Skoda will present the Kodiaq RS at the Paris motor show, which kicks off on October 2. Stay tuned for our coverage.
Speaking with CarAdvice in June, Paul Pottinger, communications boss for Skoda’s local division, said the Kodiaq RS is an unlikely starter for Australia – at least for the time being – as the 176TDI is currently not available for ‘hot climate’ regions like Australia.
However, Pottinger noted that the Australian arm of the Volkswagen Group is “actively addressing” our region’s ‘hot climate’ designation, which is also responsible for locally-bound Volkswagen Golf R models being detuned compared to their European equivalents.
When asked if the Kodiaq RS will be offered with a second powertrain, such as the 206TSI petrol available in the Superb, Pottinger said it’s “unlikely” for such a “specialised vehicle” to be offered with two engine options.
