1:40 am
torque he says the engine is currently the most powerful one that skoda as on offer and now says ronnie we're going to find out just how sporty they kodiak are is really is they stick at it's a boat that is does that mean it's a fit in five models test. them by turbo charge four cylinder t.d.i. packs quite a bit of and can push the kodiak from zero to one hundred kilometers per hour and six point nine seconds nevertheless cisco to its fifty with fueling could go one hundred kilometers around six point four leaders of diesel in germany the new r s prices start at almost fifty thousand euros and. sidecar run he says the cardiacs force comes mainly from the buy turbo engine the first turbo is designed to deliver power dynamically at low revs the second produces optimum manifold pressure when the engine is running high ronnie explains

1:42 am
in the sports scene supposed in i'll confound rand leathered look stylish and hold driver and passengers in place during sharp turns. ronnie says when skoda introduces our as model it's got this sound as well as what the part and the latest kodiak does just that he knows that the diesel has an unexpectedly throaty growl. but does that's thanks to his sound generator that's been installed in the exhaust system some cars his ronnie have engine sound generators that can only be heard on the inside it thinks that's ridiculous if you've got a car that looks sporty its rule should be as well ronny praises skoda saying the kodiak are in sound is right on pitch as does something to do as they say what about. the kodiak
1:43 am
car as also gets top marks for its adaptive suspension steering and dual clutch transmission even when it's operating off road in sport mode the ride is relatively smooth in comfort mode and coding and cradles his passengers by ironing out every bump in the road. it's for the army says that the kodiak car and this is a true car for all seasons and surfaces driving can be fun and sporty while long trips are comfortable and above all easy on fuel you know it's not the only thing missing is a gasoline engine because all the other are as models have one and this car could use a sporty gas power plant run a balance is that we're saying that the diesel really packs a punch and makes the kodiak a really different car it's not the one that trundles off to take the kids to school but one that. heels down the highway.
1:44 am
up to now they go to kodiak our asses only come with the by terrible diesel drive train we tested near it the arias models are really popular the octavia r. is features both diesel and gasoline models so it should only be a matter of time before the kodiak are as follows. don't let the familiar sounding name fool you key is new proceed is an all new body type. a compact shooting brick as the sporty is member of the new seat family the proceed is offered exclusively in g.t. line and. we're testing the top of the line model a one hundred fifty kilowatt g.t. version it comes with numerous red accents like on the grill where there's also
1:45 am
a batch. would whip eighteen inch wheel hubs brake calipers and door sill so the four point sixty one metre long vehicle are also highlighted in the color. but the best side of the proceeds is the rear which combines sleek design with racing elements. guard tends to remain washee for says shooting brake always means at the roof line drops off in the rear and that can sometimes mean there isn't much ed room left but that isn't so. what the pros see if you can be tall one meters eighty five one
1:46 am
meters ninety but still be able to sit comfortably like weiss with leg room there's no problem. that she'd see is also very sporty on the inside and features paddles on the steering wheel. the seats are contoured and have red stitching as does the trim on the steering wheel. the assisted systems include a front collision warning including emergency brake assist with pedestrian detection there's a choice of a manual six speed gearbox or like artis car a seven speed to a clutch gearbox to driving modes are available normal and sport. in manoa says of the proceedings mainly a station wagon which means story spaces so i'll take
1:47 am
a look there's just over six hundred leaders here and that can be expanded to more than one thousand five hundred leaders that's a lot of space but here there are also intelligent fastening solutions here he says key is done it's homework he was always going to. but we don't just want to look we also want to drive a sleek g.t. the one point six liter turbo gasoline engine already puts out its maximum torque of two hundred sixty five minute meters in just one thousand five hundred r.p.m. our version would do a clutch transmission accelerates from zero to one hundred kilometers per hour and seven point five seconds the sports suspension gives a strong road feel and allows agile cornering. but mine was sense as far as adding is concerned the proceed cuts a fine figure here in the countryside or on winding mountain roads and then when
1:48 am
you're driving in sports mode there's a little more sound coming from the exhaust and making it more fun to drive it takes to curves with the nice the dual clutch transmission shifts quickly and above all precisely there's only one but a noticeable turbo bag below one thousand eight hundred r.p.m. that makes it a bit sluggish but about that it's full steam ahead and a lot of fun. that's got the since the car makes a good overall impression but there's really only one way to test the math on the race track luckily for us there's one very close by and barcelona's park more toward a constant reminder welcome to let off steam in the pro scene chichi without having to worry about sharing the road and we're in sport mode of course it provides improved throttle response greater acceleration more direct steering and a growly are saddled.
1:49 am
with says the proceeds g.t. is really funny around the track where you can just floor at all and it makes an appealing noise even though you can tell it's a. front wheel drive car it handles relatively well now and then the rear wanders a little but it's relatively easy to compensate so considering that it's basically a station wagon with sporting ambitions it puts on a respectable show the. head of the some good day unless. its handling is also respectable when it comes to other disciplines on this wall of course the shooting brake has no trouble winding around the cones. and weapon roads are no problem either the proceeds g.t.
1:50 am
remains easy to control even while braking and comes to a safe stop quickly. but alongside the sportiness of the proceeds g.t. shooting brake key it still continues to stick to the classic station wagon the team received sports wagon comes with a wider choice of mansions. sums up by saying the proceed is a really great car especially in this shooting brake look with a sloping rear light and of course you can also buy it as a wagon and it's a little roomier high but it doesn't look as cool as the shooting brake the only drawback is that the rear window is a bit small but overall he thinks it's something proceed owners going to it with that's coming up since because of the shrouds. the shooting brake is already available in germany and the more reasonably priced g.t. line for under twenty eight thousand euros.
