Skoda Aus­tralia has ex­panded its seven-seat Ko­diaq SUV range with the ad­di­tion of the Sport­line trim level that kicks off from $46,990 plus on-road costs, or $50,290 drive­away for the 132TSI ver­sion.

The Sport­line ver­sions are priced at $4000 more than the reg­u­lar vari­ants and add a num­ber of vis­ual flairs inside and out.

Sport­line vari­ants gain 20-inch Vega an­thracite al­loy wheels and the Sport­line de­sign pack­age, which in­cludes blacked-out door mir­rors, roof rails, win­dow frames, ceil­ing trim, ra­di­a­tor grille frame, body coloured side panel and a unique Vel­vet Red paint colour.

Inside, the Sport­line gains Al­can­tara leather sports seats with sil­ver stitch­ing, Al­can­tara up­hol­stery in the door panel, alu­minium fin­ish ac­cel- er­a­tor, Sport­line lo­gos and dec­o­ra­tive front and rear door sill trims, a cus­tomis­able per­for­mance mon­i­tor, drive mode se­lec­tor, elec­tric driver’s seat with mem­ory func­tion, auto dim­ming fold­ing side mir­rors and steer­ing wheel-mounted pad­dle shifters.

The Sport­line pack­age can be op­tioned on both vari­ants, in­clud­ing the 132kw-320nm 2.0-litre turbo-petrol en­gine and 140kw-400nm oil-burner of iden­ti­cal dis­place­ment.

Both vari­ants em­ploy a seven-speed dual-clutch DSG au­to­matic trans­mis­sion that sends power to all four wheels.

Two op­tion packs are avail­able across the range – the Tech pack for $2600 and Lux­ury pack, which costs reg­u­lar Ko­diaq buy­ers $4900, down to $3400 for the Sport­line.

The Ko­diaq fol­lows the launch of the Su­perb Sport­line early last year that added good­ies onto the top-spec 206TSI 4x4. Skoda has sold 201 ex­am­ples of the Ko­diaq in the first two months of 2018, com­fort­ably be­hind seg­ment lead­ers such as the Toy­ota Prado with 2492 sales, Toy­ota Kluger, 2317, and Subaru Out­back, 1666.

It recorded 630 to­tal sales in the six months it was on sale in 2017.
