With roughly a day-and-a-half before Skoda officially reveals its first three-row, seven seat SUV, the Volkswagen Group-owned company has released a batch of interior images of its new Kodiaq.

In the inside, inspiration is clearly taken from the clean and logical layout of Skoda’s other vehicles like the Octavia and Superb, with the same three-arm steering wheel ahead of the driver, and what appear to be regular gauges instead of an expansive LCD screen as featured in Volkswagen and Audi vehicles.

The interior centrepiece is Skoda’s large central touchscreen, with a minimalist “glass design” and an infotainment layout with “Simply Clever” operation (meaning you shouldn’t get too lost trying to work out how to make a phone call or input a navigation destination).

The preview images are likely to be of a high-specification vehicle, meaning that some of the displayed features like leather seat trim, the large touchscreen system, Canton premium audio, three-zone climate control rear seat heating, LED accent lighting, and self-parking may be reserved for more expensive variants.

Another standout feature from the pre-release images clearly shows a three-pedal footwell and a six-speed manual transmission. While European audiences will be given the option of automatic and manual models, don’t expect to see the manual make the trip to Australia, should the Kodiaq be offered for sale here.

Skoda has also confirmed that the Skoda will have a 4.7 metre length and 1.88 metre width. Inside, interior functionality is boosted by individually reclining rear seats and a class-best 2065 litre of interior volume with the rear seat (of the five seat variant) stowed.

TMR will bring you all the latest info from the Koqiaq’s official Berlin debut tomorrow, so check back to find out more.
