Skoda Superb vRS and Skoda Kodiaq vRS May Get Hot Performance Version. Even though the complete details are still under discussion, it is confirmed that Skoda bosses want to add performance versions on its Skoda Super vRS and Skoda Kodiaq vRS. Details are very few right now, but it is not without hints. Read the following update to know what to expect.
Skoda Superb vRS, Skoda Kodiaq vRS Specifications
Powertrain, Engine Specs
As it is still under discussion, they haven’t decided the engines to be used on the performance versions. However, it is only logical that it should go over the top range of the current version. Current range topper is now powered by the turbocharged 2.0-liter engine that generates 276 bhp of power output. With that in mind, it is possible that Volkswagen Golf R’s 296 bhp engine will be included in options.
The new Skoda Kodiaq vRS should be available in four-wheel drive configuration as well. In addition to it, Skoda seems to be keen on adding the hybrid powertrain to its lineup. They will add plug-in hybrid powertrain with their first petrol-electric powertrain on Superb in 2018, followed by Kodiaq later.
Features, Exterior and Interior
Until the announcement on their consideration on this new expansion, Skoda hasn’t mentioned about their expectation on the exterior and interior part of the new version. Most possibly, the new cars will use current base design and platform.

However, to support better performance, lighter body and more aerodynamic kit should be added as well. Logically, the interior should be enhanced, featuring more driver-focus features as well. It is still too early to know their plan on both parts.
Skoda Superb vRS, Skoda Kodiaq vRS Release Date and Price
Skoda hasn’t specified the release date for both cars so far, but they are sure that both will arrive around 2018 and 2019, possibly as 2019 models. New Kodiaq vRS and also Superb vRS Price is unknown so far with too few details have been confirmed, but it should be higher than new top range trims. The exciting news on both new cars is that Skoda plans to enter US market, as they claim 25% of their buyers are from the US. If this is true, this is something brave enough, especially learning that the US is filled with serious rivals even until 2020.
This brand has quite a reputation, but the new performance version should be good enough if they want to enter US market, which is filled with high-performance cars and SUVs. Few buyers will be interested in the idea, but market competition is high. Stay tuned to get the next update on Skoda Super vRS and Skoda Kodiaq vRS.
