The new ŠKODA KODIAQ GT will be presented to the public for the first time.

The new ŠKODA KODIAQ GT will be 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.

Exclusively for ŠKODA’s largest single market worldwide, the SUV range of the car manufacturer in China now includes four models – the KODIAQ GT, KODIAQ, KAROQ and KAMIQ. ŠKODA will be showcasing its range of models available in China at Auto Guangzhou.


The new ŠKODA KODIAQ GT is the highlight of this year’s Auto Guangzhou, one of the most important international auto shows in the world’s largest car market – China. Combining the robustness and versatility of an SUV with the sporty elegance and dynamism of a coupé, the new top model in ŠKODA’s SUV family in China appeals to lifestyle-oriented customers. The KODIAQ GT is ŠKODA’s first production model to feature the brand logo in block capitals along the middle of the tailgate...


Not only does ŠKODA offer four SUV model series in China as the only market to date; but the brand also offers another vehicle exclusively for the Chinese market – the ŠKODA KAMIQ. The city SUV is positioned below the ŠKODA KAROQ at 4,390 millimetres long, 1,781 millimetres wide and 1,593 millimetres. The KAMIQ is powered by a newly developed 1.5-litre petrol engine with an output of 81 kW (110 hp) and is aimed at young urban customers in China with its generous space and modern connectivity solutions such as the artificial intelligence system iFLYTEK.


Between the flagship ŠKODA KODIAQ GT and the entry-level ŠKODA KAMIQ, ŠKODA offers the KODIAQ and KAROQ, which are also available in Europe. With an outside length of 4,697 millimetres, an optional third-row of seats and a boot volume of up to 2,065 litres, the KODIAQ is even more versatile than the dynamic KODIAQ GT. Several efficient engines are also available for the SUV – a 1.4 TSI with 110 kW (150 hp), 2.0 TSI with 137 kW (186 hp) and a 2.0 TSI with 162 kW (220 hp).


In addition, the KODIAQ offers modern connectivity solutions and numerous assistance systems, which the ŠKODA KAROQ also features in China. At 4,432 millimetres long and with a wheelbase of 2,688 millimetres, it is 50 millimetres larger than the European KAROQ in both dimensions. The engines are available with 1.2 litre and 1.5 litre TSI engines, delivering 85 kW (115 hp) and 110 kW (150 hp) respectively.

Alongside the SUVs, the Czech brand’s entire product range, including the SUPERB, OCTAVIA and OCTAVIA COMBI as well as the RAPID and RAPID SPACEBACK, will be presented in China at the SAIC ŠKODA stand in hall 6.1.
