New Skoda Kodiaq teased again revealing evolutionary design
Skoda has teased the new Kodiaq SUV again and this time through some exterior sketches. The teaser images reveal the new Skoda Kodiaq in a sharper avatar that features evolutionary design. The second generation model was teased a few weeks ago through some images where the Czech automaker's flagship SUV was seen testing alongside the new Superb sedan ahead of launch later this year. While the camouflaged prototype didn't reveal much detail about the upcoming new generation Kodiaq, the teaser sketches show us what we can expect.
The teaser images revealed by the automaker show the new generation Skoda Kodiaq carrying the same Bohemian Crystal-influenced design philosophy. It sports a vertically slated sharp front grille, where the outline is highlighted by chrome elements and the inserts get black treatment. The grille is flanked by sharp headlamps featuring integrated LED daytime running lights. The bumper is different from the current model and looks more sculpted.

The large alloy wheels with a new design and updated C-shaped motif in LED taillights are there among other styling elements. Keeping pace with the global trend of sleek lightbars at the tailgate connecting the taillights, the second-generation Kodiaq too would adopt this design element. Overall, the teaser sketches suggest that the design of the new-generation Skoda Kodiaq has been updated significantly.

The new Skoda Kodiaq will come underpinned by the same MQB Evo platform.
