Skoda Kodiaq SportLine Confirmed, Should Debut In Geneva

There's definitely no shortage of #Skoda Kodiaq reports, and the latest one points the finger at a hotter version, tipped to join the lineup next year.

Dubbed the SportLine, it was confirmed by the brand's executives at the SUV's international launch in Mallorca, as CarAdvice writes, and it will follow hot on the heels of the Superb SportLine in a more aggressive tone, which will bring it close to Volkswagen's Tiguan R-Line.

Setting it apart from the usual S, SE, SE L, and Edition trims will be a series of visual revisions that will include beefier bumpers and larger wheels, along with other tweaks and probably a reduced ground height, considering that the sedan sits 15 mm closer to the road in the range-topping flavor.

As far as power goes, it's uncertain whether the Czechs will use the same 2.0-liter turbocharged petrol unit from the Superb SportLine, which is good for 280 PS (276 HP), or whether they will stick to an initial announcement that referred to a twin-turbo diesel lump with as much as 240 PS (237 HP) 'borrowed' from the Euro-spec Passat.

It shouldn’t take long for Skoda to reveal the full details on such a model though, as it's expected to celebrate its world debut next March at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.
