What’s Skoda Cooking With This Kodiaq Prototype? 17

The Skoda Kodiaq is already available in various markets, so spotting a prototype of the 7-seater SUV testing on the Nurburgring raises some questions.

What we have here cannot be answered with certainty by anyone outside the company, but we think that we’re likely looking at a new version.

One scenario calls for the rumored range-topping vRS being put to the test, and the black bumpers of the prototype, along with the basic halogen headlights, might be there to trick bystanders into thinking they’re looking at a entry-level Kodiaq – which, come to think of it, is another possibility.

Anyway, if this is indeed the Kodiaq vRS, then it will benefit from a number of improvements over lesser variants, including a more aggressive body kit, a tweaked chassis and improved brakes, while power could come from the 2.0-liter twin-turbo four-cylinder diesel of the European VW Tiguan.

Another explanation is that this prototype is a test bed for a hybrid powertrain – but it’s all speculation, so we’ll have to wait a little bit longer until we can find out more about what Skoda has in store for its SUV.

This Is The 2016 Skoda Roomster That Got Axed 29

Images with the updated version of the Roomster have surfaced on the web, revealing the actual car that was supposed to be launched next year.

The second-gen Roomster was axed, as the brand decided to focus on crossovers and SUVs instead of a rebadged Volkswagen Caddy and, purportedly, it has nothing to do with the emissions scandal that forced the VW Group to reconsider its future models.

Just as expected, the 2016 model would have featured the corporate grille, along with different graphics for the lighting units. The vehicle was also supposed to get bespoke exterior trimmings, more space in the cabin and an engine range similar to the one of the Caddy, including the 1.0-liter, 1.2-liter and 1.4-liter petrol units along with by diesel powertrains.

Reports indicate that Skoda has already built approximately 100 units of the compact people carrier. They’ll never hit the market, though, as the automaker is focusing on a VW Tiguan-based SUV, allegedly called the Kodiak.

The new SUV should make its debut at the 2016 Paris Motor Show, next October. It will reportedly be offered in five- and seven-seat versions and will be manufactured at Skoda’s Kvasiny plant in the Czech Republic.
