New Skoda Kodiaq Sportline 2018-2019 year – photo, price in Russia, equipment and technical specifications of the Czech crossover version Skoda Kodiak Sport. Officially Skoda Kodiaq performed by Sportline will appear in the framework of the Geneva International Motor Show 2017 , by the way, together with the more prepared for off-road version of Skoda Kodiaq Scout .

We want to emphasize at the outset that the Skoda Kodiaq Sportline is the sports version of the Czech crossover equipped with the same engines as the usual Skoda Kodiak versions (with the exception of the base 125-horsepower 1.4-liter TSI), but the real sports version with a 280- A strong 2.0-liter turbo engine will be named Skoda Kodiaq RS.
So at the beginning of our review, a few words about the technical characteristics of the Skoda Kodiaq Sportline 2018-2019 model year.

In the engine compartment of the new products the manufacturer prescribes four-cylinder petrol engines 1.4 TSI (150 hp 250 Nm) and 2.0 TSI (180 hp 320 Nm) and diesel engines 2.0 TDI (150 hp 340 Nm) and 2.0 TDI (190 hp 400 Nm). The choice of three gearboxes – 6 manual gearboxes, 6 DSG and 7 DSG, by default is offered a full drive 4X4. Adaptive shock absorbers with electronic control (three Comfort, Normal and Sport modes) with Adaptive Dynamic Chassis Control are offered as an option.
Dynamic and high-speed characteristics, as well as fuel consumption of the Czech crossover Kodiaq in the Sportline version one in one, as models Skoda Kodiaq Scout. Depending on the engine power, the acceleration from 0 to 100 kmh takes 8.0-9.8 seconds, the maximum speed is 197-210 kmh, and the fuel consumption from 5.3 liters in the crossover with the initial diesel to 7.3 liters in a powerful gasoline Version.
All the characteristics, however, are familiar to us since the debut of the Czech crossover Skoda Kodiak on the podium of the Paris Motor Show in autumn 2016. So what is interesting in the performance of Sportline, that we have bothered practically for a full review?

Appearance and design of the interior, these are the main aspects that distinguish Sportline from the background of the rest of the Kodiaq family. Despite the fact that we have a full crossover with all-wheel drive, an impressive 194 mm clearance and excellent indicators of the geometric patency of the body, like the off-road version of the Skoda Kodiaq Scout (angle of entry is 22 degrees, the ramp angle is 19.7 degrees, the angle of the exit is – 23.1 degrees), to drive such a handsome man into the mud of desire from the potential owner will not, most likely. Moreover, the body of the decorated Kodiak practically lost his plastic protection. Uncoated plastic is present on the thresholds, the edges of the wheel arches and the rear bumper in a meager amount. The original front and rear bumpers of the sports configuration are complemented by glossy overlays and chrome decorative inserts.

Standard crossover is equipped with 19-inch alloy wheels, but if desired, for an additional fee you can install and 20-inch wheels with low-profile tires.
Painted black falshradiatornaya grilles, protective mesh lower intake, rearview mirror body, roof rails and chrome strip with bends that paint the exhaust pipes, brightly complement the shiny crossover body crossover.

Skoda Kodiaq Sportline does not have any images yet, but representatives of the Czech company assure that the model will receive the most luxurious in the family interior with a sports multifunction steering wheel, first-row sports seats with enlarged side support rollers, interior leather trim and alcantara, metal pedals and pedals Thresholds. Advanced Columbia navigation system with a 9.2-inch display in addition to the standard functions (navigation, music, Wi-Fi, LTE module, rear-view camera or the system of the circular view of the Area-View system), pleases the ability to display information on overloads, temperatures Engine oil and turbocharging.
Understandable, there is a mass of electronic assistants and assistants, starting with the system of automatic braking in city traffic mode with the function of detecting pedestrians, ending with the parking assistant.
