Skoda Kodiaq GT coupe revealed

Images of the five-seat Skoda Kodiaq GT SUV-coupé surface ahead of Chengdu Auto Show world premier.

In November last year, Skoda had announced that it will be adding a five-seat Kodiaq GT coupé to its global portfolio. The company is now expected to debut the Kodiaq GT SUV-coupé at the upcoming Chengdu Motor show in China. A first set of images of what looks like a production-spec version of the Skoda Kodiaq GT coupé. The Kodiaq GT will be initially built at the Shanghai-VW JV facility in China.

The Skoda Kodiaq GT’s 4,634mm length makes it 63mm shorter than the standard Kodiaq. It also gets a distinctive coupé-like roof which gives it a unique identity. This is the first four-door SUV-coupé by Skoda and will sit above the standard Kodiaq in the brand’s global line-up. Interestingly, Skoda has been persistent in keeping the Kodiaq GT a China-only model; however, we think this model could make it to other markets, as well.

The Kodiaq GT is powered by a 2.0-litre turbo­-petrol engine that will be sold in 180hp or 220hp states of tune. There will be a seven-speed DCT on offer for both engine options. Skoda will offer 4WD on higher trims. As far as equipment goes, it will be at par with the seven-seat variant. As seen in the images, a large sunroof will also be on offer.

The Skoda Kodiaq GT will see competition from the upcoming Renault Captur SUV-coupé which will also initially launch in the Chinese and Russian markets.
