car one guess thing that will disappear into the future so it's a good sort of it's a turning point and we really we're very excited about. and now it's up to new york says. the kodiak has been a hit for skoda two hundred seventy seven thousand of them have been sold in the two years it's been on the market but this time we're not looking at the standard kodiak high performance our ass. did it as on the car testimony let's take says the skoda is are as family is growing this is the first r s version of as popular as u.v. the kodiak ronnie's impressed with the cars to leader by turbo diesel that can deliver one hundred seventy six kilowatts of power and five hundred meters of
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 this decor yet as opposed to just doesn't add me it's a fit in five models test. the buy turbo charge four cylinder t.v. 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 thrifty with fueling could go one hundred kilometers around six point four leaders of the zone in germany the new r s prices start at almost fifty thousand euros. sidecar ronnie 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
that makes it possible for the kodiak r.s.t. had full torque early at one thousand seven hundred fifty refs. a wide shiny black radiator grille with a three dimensional appearance gives the s.u.v. an exclusive flair. the wing mirrors window frames and roof rails are glistening black is white on. complete l.e.d. headlights are standard around the kodiak arias is brash look. across and do an exhaust gleams from beneath the rear bumper. of the interiors dominated by digital instrumentation and a large centrally placed touch display.
in the sports seat supposed an aisle cunto rand leather 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. what it does but that's thanks to a sound generator that's been installed in the exhaust system some cars has running have engine sound generators that can only be heard on the inside of the things that's ridiculous if you've got a car that looks sporty its roar should be as well ronnie praises skoda saying the kodiak are in sound is right on pitch as does something which of course if you put them up on. the kodiak
r.s. 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 that kodiak cradles his passengers by ironing out every bump in the road. the army says that the kodiak are as 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 that 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 running balances that was 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 appeals down the highway.
up to now there skoda kodiak car as has only come with the buy turbo diesel drive train we've tested near it the irish models are really popular the octavio are 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 this new procedure is an all new body to. a compact shooting brake as the sporty is member of the new seat family the proof is offered exclusively in g.t. line and. we're testing the top of the line model a one hundred fifty kilo and g.t. version it comes with numerous red accents like on the grill where there's also
a g.t. batch. for spring would whip eighteen inch wheel hubs brake calipers and do. so the four points 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 that the roof line drops off in the rear and that can sometimes mean there isn't much headroom left but that isn't so with the proceeds if you can be tall one meters eighty five
one meters ninety but still be able to sit comfortably like weiss with leg room there's no problem. and she t. 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 is a choice of a manual six speed gearbox or like our test car a seven speed dual clutch gearbox two 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
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 intel and. in fashioning solutions here he says key is done its homework he was always good to. but we don't just want to look we also want to drive the sleek g.t. the one point six leader turbo gasoline engine already puts out its maximum torque of two hundred sixty five newton meters in just one thousand five hundred r.p.m. our version with dual 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. 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 you're driving in sports mode there's
a little more sound coming from the exhaust 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 above 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 maps on the race track luckily for us there's one very close by that barcelona's park more toward a constant reminder welcome to let off steam and the pro scene g.t. without having to worry about sharing the road and were in sport mode of course it provides improved throttle response greater excel aeration more direct steering and a gravelly or sound.
if you want a while says the proceeds g.t. is really fun here on the. or you can just floor it all and it makes in the peeling 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. it's. kind of the some good to say and us. it's handling is also respectable when it comes to other disciplines on the slalom course the shooting brake has no trouble winding around the cones. and wet roads are no problem either the proceeds g.t.
remains easy to control even while braking and comes to a safe stop quickly. but alongside the sportiness of the proceeds g.t. shooting breaky it still continues to stick to the classic station wagon the teamers sports wagon comes with a wider choice of mentions. the money most sums up by saying the proceed is a really great cars especially in this shooting brake look with the sloping rear light and of course you can also buy it is 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 are going to live with that's coming up as he asked some question about. the shooting brake is already available in germany and the more reasonably priced g.t. line for under twenty eight thousand year s.
. one hundred thirty recent cars from his story classics like the audi quatro s one the votes wagons pikes peak racer ad big names in motor sports such as while there were constant took and mark webber and put it all together in the winter panorama of the austrian alps what you get is a mini summit of motor sport that g.p. ice race. but the event was frozen for forty five years this year ferdinand porsche great grandson and namesake of the company founder and german vintage porsche dealer vinson's greg revived the ice race even they were surprised by its success.
the event in san jose was once a highlight in every racing calendar between one thousand thirty seven and one nine hundred seventy three crowns have spectators meet an annual pilgrimage to the town near zones borg to attend this spectacle it was started by the first ferdinand poor ship near his family estate but after a tragic fatal accident during preparations for the one nine hundred seventy four race it was put on ice but now it's back. to. society now is less accepting of having the old school events full for whatever reason you know this whether it's noise whether it helps with their hoods sorry the
local area whether there is a bit of risk involved so that's why these events are really cool you know when it goes back to the roots it shows that all the see the the beautiful turnout of cars and we havea lot a lot of history at. beautiful racetrack so it's story unfold of these events take place. spectators are treated to a unique makes a rally and race cars both historic and modern. among other things mark webber gets to drive a nearly seventy year old porsche three fifty six and it proves to be quite a thrill. multiple lamond winner. pilots today's polo g d i r five over the ice cores. and beach buggy show off their talents and less sunny climes.
we had a last ill relationship she she looked up to me and i looked up to her so it was good fun like a little bit of drifting going on but a sideways action and that was really cool so i will drive it a bit more and yeah but i'm learning off the big boys and of course on many a version here i'm very i don't i don't i don't do these ten which is you know this is not my team which i would have i know me in the sun that is tell me about a guy to be. during a break why good news is the time to show off a car that won the race to the clouds in colorado the ideas are electric racing car but not only that pike's peak record holder room on dumas who drives the i d r gets another important mission he has to show the i.d.r. his mettle on the most demanding racetrack in the world the nordschleife and germany's near bergrin hill attempt to set a record over the green help and to tackle that challenge the idea has been extensively revised above all the aerodynamics of the electric race car need to be
altered to match the significantly different conditions of the nordschleife and. for two days the ice raise proves that even classics you wouldn't expect to see on the ice still have what it takes and for spectators there's the chance to drive on the track. despite the frigid temperatures ice and cool the race warms the blood from the around eight thousand spectators revving engines the smell of gasoline studded tires and racing precision under extreme conditions put them all together and it's quite a comeback for the races on ice. next
