2021 Skoda Kodiaq facelift: Better looks, gas engine for vRS and RS

More tech, improved design, and a sportier engine for the sports model, the Skoda Kodiaq is all that you’d want from a facelift.

There are new slimmer headlights, a more dynamic grille, new taillights, bumpers and wheels. It is also (surprisingly) the first Skoda with full matrix LED headlights.

Under the hood there’s a range of turbo diesel and gas engines, but the big change is the twin-turbo diesel engine for the sporty RS (or vRS) has been replaced by a 2L turbo I4 gas engine with 180kW (241hp) and a 7-speed DCT with AWD.

Not only is engine better for the environment, it’s also a full 60kg (132lb) lighter, so it’ll be quicker too.
