The updated 2021 Skoda Kodiaq has been caught under the spycam in its home market - Czech Republic. The spy images suggest that majority of the exterior tweaks will be majorly concentrated towards the front/rear-end of the vehicle.

For 2021, the Kodiaq SUV will come with an updated butterfly grille with vertical slots. The new front grille will be flanked by redesigned front headlamps, also the fog lamps have gone through some remodeling in the process. There is also wider airdam with a honey-comb pattern grille on the front bumper. The overall profile of the large-sized SUV remains more or less the same.

While the cabin space is clearly hidden away in the spy images, goes without saying that the SUV will be updated with new comfort and entertainment features on the inside, along with a new infotainment system, reworked instrument cluster, and new upholstery.
