Not that you have no idea what it'll look like, but here's a first glimpse at the overall exterior design.

Skoda has released yet another set of teaser images for the new Kodiaq RS, ahead of its full reveal at the Paris motor show early next month.

We've already seen glimpses of the exterior changes and been given some of the mechanical details, but this time the Czech brand has given us a full view of the exterior – albeit in drawings, not photographs of the vehicle.

There's no real surprises here, we know what the 20-inch wheels will look like, we know the grille, mirrors and window frames will be finished in black, and we know the Kodiaq RS will debut a new 'RS' badge, which has a red 'V' (which stands for 'victory') as opposed to the chrome 'V' with green accents.

You can expect the concept look of these sketches to be toned down for the real-life car – we got our clearest look at the RS-specific bits earlier this week.

Key highlights will also include a new Race Blue metallic colour option, 17-inch brake discs with red-painted calipers, a unique rear bumper with dual tailpipe outlets, and a reflector spanning the width of the vehicle.

Power will come from the Volkswagen Group's 2.0-litre bi-turbo four-cylinder diesel, making 176kW of power and 500Nm of torque. While not officially confirmed, it's expected the Kodiaq RS will send drive to all four wheels via a seven-speed DSG – given the Tiguan and Passat with the same powertrain do just that.

Stay tuned to CarAdvice for our coverage of the Kodiaq RS's full reveal at the Paris motor show, which kicks off on October 2.
