THE Skoda Kodiaq SUV is getting a makeover and the Czech car company has released a series of design sketches giving a clue to the new model's looks.
It is due for reveal in the metal on April 13 but ahead of that a look at what can be expected shows the new Kodiaq with revised front and rear ends and redesigned LED headlights.
The first ketch shows a more striking front with a redesigned bonnet and a more upright, hexagonalgrille featuring double slats.
The headlights, which are slimmer than those seen on the current model, combine with the fog lights positioned below to create a new four-eyed face.
Another noticeable new feature is the redesigned front apron, with a wider central air intake framed by L-shaped trim elements on either side and an aluminium-look insert.
The second sketch is a close-up of the remodelled front headlights. It depicts the two LEDmodules arranged one on top of the other, creating a characteristic light signature.
The third sketch shows that the taillights also have a more slimmed-down look, mirroring the front lights. They feature Skoda's signature crystalline structures and form a flatter version of the marque's C-shape design.
The arrival of the Kodiaq in 2016 marked the start of the current Skoda SUV family and the model nomenclature using names starting with a K and ending with a Q.
Available with the option of seven seats more than 600,000 units of the SUV have been produced, and the Kodiaq is currently on sale in 60 markets around the world.
