Motor: Kodiaq RS includes the most dominant diesel motor in Škoda history 
The motor of the Škoda Kodiaq RS is another achievement in the historical backdrop of the brand from Mladá Boleslav, which traverses over 120 years. With its capacity yield of 176 kW (240 PS) and greatest torque of 500 Nm, the motor only accessible in the new execution SUV is the most dominant diesel motor utilized in a Škoda generation vehicle to date. 
The center of the Škoda Kodiaq RS's incredible 2.0 TDI is its two-arrange biturbo innovation. The 2-liter motor highlights two reciprocal turbochargers associated in arrangement. The first is a high-weight fumes gas turbocharger with a little turbine, a little blower haggle turbine sharp edge modification. This structure considers a quick reaction, even at lower motor velocities. The second turbo is a low-weight charger. With its extensive turbine and blower wheel, it accomplishes a significantly higher lift weight of up to 3.8 bar at high motor rates, which builds the motor yield impressively. At lower motor speeds, the chargers work in two phases. The low-weight charger is in charge of the pre-pressure of the air attracted; the high-weight charger is in charge of the fundamental pressure. At high motor paces, just the low-weight charger is utilized in single-arrange activity. Organized along these lines, the turbo framework ensures constant power yield with a short response time and high pinnacle esteems. 

Extraordinary driving execution with low utilization 
On account of the biturbo innovation, the 2.0 TDI as of now conveys its greatest torque of 500 Nm somewhere in the range of 1,750 and 2,500 rpm; the pinnacle control yield is 176 kW (240 PS).

The Škoda Kodiaq RS is fitted with an oxidation exhaust system and a diesel particulate channel specifically on the motor just as a SCR exhaust system for fumes gas treatment and satisfies the Euro 6d-TEMP emanation guidelines. So as to accomplish these figures, Škoda AUTO has actualized various specialized measures, utilized direct infusion in the biturbo and has coordinated a Stop-Start framework just as brake vitality recuperation. The expand thermo-the executives framework with a switchable coolant siphon additionally has an utilization diminishing impact. The framework rapidly conveys the motor to the ideal working temperature after the motor has begun. 
Škoda's choice to utilize a diesel motor for a superior vehicle, for example, the Kodiaq RS is supported by its various favorable circumstances. The objective gathering for expansive SUVs, for example, the Škoda Kodiaq is cost-cognizant. On account of the low utilization of 6.4 liters per 100 km, running expenses stay underneath those of a similar oil motor in spite of the abnormal state of driving execution, and CO2 outflows are significantly lower. 
Also, on account of its higher torque, the diesel is more qualified to towing a pony box or vessel trailer, for instance. Altogether, 57 percent of the motors in the Kodiaq demonstrate extend worldwide are diesels.A dynamic vehicle needs a lively stable. That is the reason, in the Kodiaq RS; Dynamic Sound Boost is utilized without precedent for a Škoda. Dynamic Sound Boost is a framework that adjusts the sound of the vehicle. The committed control unit for this framework peruses CAN transport flags, for example, the motor speed, torque, chose rigging and speed. It ascertains a particular flag utilizing complex calculations. The actuator, which is situated near the fumes tailpipe, delivers a 'counterfeit' sound dependent on these signs, and meddles with and supplements the first note of the fumes framework to make an emotive and lively stable.

It does this depending on the driving situation detected by the car's sensors - and even in anticipation. Up to 85 per cent of the torque can go to a specific wheel; with small loads, only the front wheels are powered to save fuel. EDS electronic differential locks at the front and rear also prevent individual wheels from spinning on the same axle.
