Skoda stays true to their legacy by continuing to support the Czech Republic’s emergency services with an entirely new vehicle lineup.

Leading the pack is the Kodiaq Fire & Rescue, a special version of the SUV dressed in a distinctive livery and fitted emergency lights. This car is portrayed as a versatile vehicle thanks to its multi-terrain capabilities, and is joined by an ambulance variant.

Also available is the range-topping version of the Superb, which adds the 280 suffix. The most powerful production Skoda ever built is an undercover cop car here, using its 2.0-liter TSI petrol engine, shared with the Seat Leon Cupra, to fight crime.

It has 280PS (276hp) which are channeled to the standard four-wheel drive system through a DSG automatic transmission, and needs 5.8sec to reach 100km/h (62mph) from a standstill.

Skoda has man’s best friend covered too, with a special version of the Superb aimed at K9 units, dubbed the Superb Estate Police Dog Vehicle. It has two fiber glass-made air conditioned kennels, said to be approved by the RSPCA and DEFRA, plus a 100-amp, 3-tone siren.

Finally, the Octavia Scout has been turned into an ambulance that’s said to be “ideal for remote locations”, thanks to its four-wheel drive capabilities and increased ground clearance. It’s also capable of carrying an impressive 645kg (1,422lbs) of specialized equipment.

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.
