Skoda’s next big thing for the Indian market is this, the all-new 7 seater Kodiaq SUV that will go on sale later this year. The Kodiaq is now listed on Skoda’s Indian website (see) which means official booking could open in a month or two! The new Skoda Kodiaq SUV will compete with other models like the Toyota Fortuner, Ford Endeavour and the Hyundai Santa-Fe.
To be priced in the range of Rs 24-30 lakh, the Kodiaq might be offered in both 5 and 7 seat configurations. In terms of engine, though nothing has been finalized, we feel Skoda will offer the Kodiaq with a 2.0-litre TDI engine in a 190PS state of tune along with 400 Nm of torque. The engine will be mated to a 7 speed automatic (DSG) gearbox along with AWD (all-wheel drive) being standard.
The Kodiaq looks impressive. Though it does not have a muscular stance like the Fortuner or an imposing front end like the Endeavour, it looks up-market and very premium. The front face is identical to the new generation Skoda models while the rear reminds us of the Audi Q offerings. Expect the Kodiaq to be fully loaded with features including a massive sunroof.
The Kodiaq will offer the luxury of a premium sedan and practicality of a SUV. This includes a massive boot with as much as 2,065 litres of space with the 2nd and 3rd rows folded. Looks nice?
