Skoda Kodiaq – Highlights
The Skoda Kodiaq maintains its position as a niche luxury 4×4 SUV in the Indian market. It also continues to offer segment-exclusive features. Skoda’s flagship SUV got a nip-and-tuck for 2022 and also got a 2.0-litre TSI engine which replaced the earlier 2.0-litre TDI. The proven turbo-petrol mill makes 190 PS and 320 Nm of torque and sends power to all four wheels. All this helps the Kodiaq accelerate from 0 to 100 kmph in 7.8 seconds. Also helping achieve this level of performance is the quick-shifting 7-speed DSG automatic.
A few of the Kodiaq’s segment-exclusive features include the Dynamic Chassis Control and a 625W 12-speaker CANTON surround sound. It also gets a host of comfort features along with Skoda’s ‘Simply Clever’ touches across the cabin. Some of which include the large panoramic sunroof, blinds, blankets and an umbrella holder.
