A NEW range topping Laurin and Klement model has been announced by Skoda for its Kodiaq SUV line up.

Priced from £35,495 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 are 4x4 and are available with DSG semi-automatic transmissions. A six-speed manual is available on the 2.0 TDI 150ps engine.

Named after the company's founders, the Laurin and Klement cars have a chrome grille, 19-inch alloy wheels finished in anthracite and special front and rear bumpers.

There's also body-coloured under-door panels with distinctive L&K signature logos on the front wings while the cars also have a panoramic sunroof as standard.

Inside, the seats are trimmed in leather complete with L&K logo, there's piano black decorative trims, an ambient lighting system and aluminium trimmed pedals.

Onboard technology includes Skoda's high end Columbus infotainment system, a surround view camera system, a CANTON hi-fi and a heated windscreen.

The new Kodiaq range now tops out at £38,105 for the 190ps 2.0-litre diesel with the turbo petrol variant powered by a 2.0-litre TSI engine which also develops 190ps costs from £37,020.

Skoda says that although the new range topper has a £2,250 premium over the Kodiaq Edition models the cost of the options fitted to the L&K as standard would normally cost more than £3,000.
