Models on the similarity of Skoda Kodiaq, which is essentially a practical family car, not often become the object of attention of tuners. But, the company ABT Sportsline specializes in Volkswagen group machines and tries to cover as much as possible a range of models. Probably there they felt that the Kodiak has the potential for improvement.
By the way, in the plans of Skoda there is a release of the “charged” version of the crossover with the prefix RS. So, until this happens, you can get the “exported” option by an alternative method – with the help of tuning services.
Atelier ABT proposes to increase the power of Kodiaq using the proprietary module ABT Engine Control. With it, for example, the stock petrol turbo engine 2.0 TSI will not produce 180 hp and 320 Nm – the return increases to 216 hp and 360 Nm of torque.
Do not be left without attention and a two-liter turbodiesel, developing in the stock version of 190 hp. power and 400 Nm of torque. After the chip tuning from ABT, its output is increased to 215 hp and 440 Nm. Even the base diesel fuel can be pumped, as a result of its capacity to grow from 150 to 180 horsepower, a thrust from 340 to 380 Nm.
In addition, ABT is ready to traditionally offer its proprietary wheels ranging in size from 18 to 21 inches in the designs of DR, ER-C, FR and GR. With different finishing options: “mystical” black, matte black, glossy black or the color of the gun metal. There are also wheel wideners and high-performance rubber.
By the way, Skoda Kodiaq is gradually gaining popularity in Russia. According to the results of sales in the Russian market in July, the Czech crossover first entered the TOP-25 popular models. This is explained by the start of the local production of the model, which made it possible to make more attractive prices for it. It was sold 1,1765 cars, whereas a year earlier the sales volume was only 215 pieces (import).
