Earlier, it was assumed that the new SUV would be called “Snowman” or “Polar”, but this has been rejected by the former head of Škoda (Vahland) as a media speculation. On 23 December 2015, Škoda registered the name “Kodiaq”, the name refers to the largest brown bear, the Kodiak bear.[4][5]

In February 2016, images of the Vision S concept were released,[6] and the concept model appeared in March 2016 at the Geneva Motor Show.[7][8] The final SUV was introduced at the Paris Motor Show on 29 September 2016.[9][10] The first cars were officially delivered to customers in February 2017.

The Kodiaq is the first vehicle in the Škoda lineup to have Area View, Tow Assist, Manoeuvre Assist and Predictive Pedestrian Protection.[11] It is also the first vehicle in the MQB platform lineup to feature capacitive shortcut buttons instead of the physical buttons for the 8″ infotainment systems.
