Comfort redefined - new range-topping Laurin & Klement model joins the award-winning KODIAQ range
Not content with building one of the most luxurious, comfortable and generously equipped SUVs on the market, ŠKODA is raising the bar even higher with the launch of a new range-topping KODIAQ Laurin & Klement model.
Milton Keynes, 24 July 2018: With prices starting from £35,945 RRP, the L&K model features even more creature comforts, safety systems and driver technology than the previous top model - the KODIAQ Edition - further enhancing its reputation for value and practicality. The new KODIAQ L&K is available with four engine options; one petrol and three diesels, with power outputs ranging from 150PS to 190PS. All feature all-wheel drive and are available with DSG transmissions or in the case of the 2.0 TDI 150PS 4x4 variant, a six-speed manual option.
Named in honour of the company’s founders, Václav Laurin and Václav Klement, the new KODIAQ L&K is the most luxurious SUV ever offered by ŠKODA. Like other L&K models in the brand’s line-up, the KODIAQ L&K comes with a remarkably generous specification list that few, if any rivals, can come close to matching. In terms of design, the KODIAQ L&K is distinguished from other models in the range by a chrome grille, 19-inch Sirius alloy wheels finished in anthracite and unique front and rear bumpers. Body-coloured under-door panels with distinctive L&K signature logos on the front wings complete the exterior design package.
The luxurious theme continues inside where the cabin is bathed in natural light thanks to the standard panoramic sunroof. The seats are trimmed in leather and alongside the armrest, feature an L&K logo. Piano black decorative trims further enhance the premium feel, as does the standard ambient lighting system and aluminium trimmed pedals.
As befits a range-topping model, the KODIAQ L&K showcases ŠKODA’s numerous technologies, driver assistants and safety features. These include Columbus infotainment system, Area view, progressive steering, curtain airbags, CANTON sound system and heated windscreen. Despite the remarkable equipment list, the KODIAQ L&K still represents incredible value for money. While the new range-topper commands a £2,550 premium over the Edition model, the cost of the individual options fitted to the L&K as standard would usually cost more than £3,000.
First deliveries for the new KODIAQ L&K are expected later in the year.
