As the design sketch already shows, all lines are clear, precise and sharp; the highly recessed shoulder line highlights the large ŠKODA SUV’s robust character. Flat, raked headlights are positioned on both sides of the wide ŠKODA grille. Their crystalline structure pays hommage to Czech crystal glass art, which is steeped in tradition.
As any parent will know, children are intensely curious. They’re always asking questions! And if we can’t give them the answers, they lose interest. At ŠKODA, we believe that if we lose an interest in the natural world we face being disconnected with what really matters. The best way to reconnect is to rediscover the natural world around us with family and friends. And the all-new ŠKODA Kodiaq is designed to enable you to do just that.
Names matter. That’s why we take great care in naming our cars – like the all-new ŠKODA KODIAQ. We also understand the importance of knowing the names of things, especially in nature.
If we lose an appreciation of the natural world, we face being disconnected with what really matters. Can you recognise an Ash from an Aspen? Play the Name Game and find out.
How would you react if a carmaker from another continent came to your city and proposed changing its name? Surprised? Bemused? Or perhaps delighted that, finally, your hometown was getting some long-overdue recognition worldwide?
May 6th, 2016 Kodiak, Alaska became Kodiaq to coincide with the official announcement of our all-new SUV. A film crew was there to document the remarkable story of the change.
When the good people of Kodiak were told a car was to be named after their island (and its bear) they were delighted – until they were told there was a little catch involving the letter ‘q’. This film shows the surprising story of the name change. And even if it was just for a day, the event has created a bond between ŠKODA and the great people of Kodiak City that’s set to last.
