Skoda has given us a peek inside the new Superb and Kodiaq ahead of their full reveals later this year, with both models showing off a new sense of style and functionality.
Changes can be found almost everywhere you look inside the new sedan (and wagon) and SUV, such as on the steering wheel, gauge cluster, dashboard, and trim.
Both interiors look pretty similar, with each getting a 10-inch digital gauge cluster, a 13-inch infotainment touchscreen, and a steering column-mounted gear selector which frees up space on the centre console for a 15W wireless phone charger and storage for other items.
Skoda will also introduce its new Smart Dials feature on the incoming Superb and Kodiaq, combining physical rotary dials with 32mm digital screens in the middle. Located under the central infotainment display, the two outer dials of the three can be configured to control temperature, seat heating, and seat ventilation, while the centre dial can control radio volume, fan speed, air direction, driving modes, map zoom, and more.
The Czech brand couldn’t resist packing some of its “Simply Clever” features inside as well, which include four 45W USB-C ports, a 15W USB-C port on the rear-view mirror for devices such as GPS units, and creature comforts like optional pneumatic seat massagers. There’s also an umbrella in the driver’s door, as well as an ice scraper.
No matter what trim level you go for in the Superb or Kodiaq, all materials have been manufactured with sustainability in mind. The Superb’s interior comes in a colour choice of black or cognac and features leather that has been tanned using wastewater from olive processing, while the Kodiaq benefits from fabric made from 100 per cent recycled polyester and leather tanned from coffee bean processing residues.
Both the Skoda Superb and Kodiaq will be revealed this spring, 90 years after the launch of the brand’s first-ever model.
