Scout version of Kodiaq for Geneva debut

Even before it arrives in Ireland, Skoda has announced a Scout version of its new Kodiaq SUV, writes Brian Byrne.

Building on the success of the 'Scout' versions of other Skoda models, the Kodiaq Scout will feature technology and visual elements to enhance its offroad ability and ethos.

The car will have underbody protection at the front and rear, a 194mm ground clearance, and specially designed 19" wheels. Two petrol and two diesel engines are available for the new model variant, which comes with all-wheel drive as standard.

The Kodiaq Scout will be shown to the public at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show.
