If you wanted to get one of the last Skoda Kodiaq RS diesels, you’re out of luck.

    There’s no stock remaining, leaving just two Skoda Kodiaq variants available ahead of the upcoming mid-cycle update.

    The update will arrive “by December” of 2021.

    The updated model will once again offer a flagship RS, albeit powered by the 180kW 2.0-litre petrol four-cylinder engine from the Octavia RS.

    Other changes for next year include revised styling front and rear, new front seats and the latest version of Skoda’s infotainment interface. You can read a full list of changes here.
