12:40 am
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 to call you back as opposed to just doesn't mean he has a fit in five models test. the buy 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 a skoda is thrifty with fueling could go one hundred kilometers around six point four leaders of diesel and germany the new r s prices start at almost fifty thousand euros and. 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
12:41 am
the kodiak our ass to have fall torque early at one thousand seven hundred fifty refs as we deal with. a wide shiny black radiator grille with a three dimensional appearance gives the s.u.v. an exclusive flare. the wing mirrors window frames and roof rails are glistening black as well. complete l.e.d. headlights are standard to round out the kodiak aristeas brash look. across i'm doing my exhaust gleams from beneath the rear bumper. of the interiors dominated by digital instrumentation and a large centrally placed touch display.
12:42 am
in the sports scene supposed in a container and 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. but it does that's thanks to a sound generator that's been installed in the exhaust system some cars is running have engine sound generators that can only be heard on the inside he 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. on the image of course as they say what about. the kodiak
12:43 am
r.s. also gets top marks for its adaptive suspension steering and dual clutch transmission even when it's operating offroad in sport mode the ride is relatively smooth and comfort mode they kodiak cradles his passengers by ironing out every bump in the road. it's very good money 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 if you notice 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 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.
12:44 am
up to now the xcode and kodiak our asses only come with the by turbo diesel drive train we've tested here if the are as models are really popular the octavio are is features both these oil 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 proof is offered exclusively in g.t. line and. we're testing the top of the line model a one hundred fifty kilo wide g.t. version it comes with numerous red accents like on the grill where there's also
12:45 am
a batch of. spoiled 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 the racing elements. so. 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 ed room left but that isn't so. the proof that you can be tall one meters eighty five one
12:46 am
meters ninety but still be able to sit comfortably like weis with leg room there's no problem. the g.t. is also very sporty on the inside and features paddles on the steering wheel. the seats are contoured and have read stitching as does the trim on the steering wheel. the assistant 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 to driving modes are available normal and sport. yeah i know it says of the proceedings mainly a station wagon which means story spaces so i'll take
12:47 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 and he had to make there are also intelligent fashioning 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 those 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 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. thus the money was sent as far as adding is concerned the proceed cuts a fine figure here in the countryside or on winding mountain roads and then when
12:48 am
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 least the dual clutch transmission shift 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 gets you since the car makes a good overall impression but there's really only one way to test a man so 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 without having to worry about sharing the road and we're in sport mode of course it provides improved throttle response greater excel aeration more direct steering and a growl e or sound.
12:49 am
if you want a while says the proceeds g.t. is really fun here on the track where you can chose for it all and it makes an appealing noise even though you can tell it's safer. 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 was sporting ambitions it puts on a respectable show. its own kind of the some good to say and. its 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.
12:50 am
remains easy to control even while braking and comes to a safe stop quickly. but alongside the sportiness of the proceeds shooting breaky it still continues to stick to the classic station wagon that teamers sports wagon comes with a wider choice of engines. sums up by saying the proceed is a really great cars especially in this shooting brake look with the sloping rear life 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 brick the only drawback is that the rear window is a bit small but overall he thinks it's something to proceed owners going to it with that's coming up 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 year reps.
12:51 am

12:55 am
altered to match the significantly different conditions of the nordschleife. for two days the ice race 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. looks cool spite the frigid temperatures ice and cold the race warms the blood for the around eight thousand spectators revving and shoots 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.
