The Kodiaq gets the same gearbox and all-wheel-drive system but, due to its added weight, the 0–62mph time increases to 7.7 seconds, while its top speed is slightly lowered at 130mph. The Karoq returns economy figures of between 32.1 and 33.2mpg on the WLTP combined cycle, with the heavier Kodiaq return just north of 30mpg.

In the Karoq, the new engine is only available in Sportline trim. However, Kodiaq buyers can spec the new 2.0-litre TSI powertrain with SE L, Scout, Sportline, Edition and L&K variants, with prices topping-out at £38,770 for the seven-seat L&K version.
