Skoda will have the KODIAQ disguised when it appears at the Tour De France.

The first-ever full-size SUV from Skoda, the new model will be partially revealed at the grand finale of the Tour de France on Sunday.

Set to lead the racers down the Champs-Elysées to the finishing line at the race ‘s concluding stage, the Skoda KODIAQ will be piloted by 1987 Tour de France winner and Skoda ambassador, Stephen Roche.

But Skoda isn’t letting us see the seven-seat KODIAQ in all its glory just yet.

The vehicle that will appear at the Tour de France will still wear some camouflage, as our photos show.

Skoda KODIAQ Key Points:

  • First three-row Skoda SUV ever
  • To be offered in five and seven-seat configurations
  • 4.7 metres in length
  • Said to have the biggest boot in its class
  • Set to be offered in Australia with choice of petrol and diesel engines
  • Hybrid variant expected in 2019

We then have to wait until September 1 for the official reveal, ahead of the models official debut at the Paris Motor Show.

We will keep you updated with further info on the Skoda KODIAQ ahead of the models Australian arrival.
