Big on space and value, without feeling cheap, it's been Skoda's best-seller since its 1996 launch, and a backbone of its fleet presence too.
Internationally, past year in September in Berlin, the Skoda Kodiaq SUV has first unveiled, and the production of the SUV started a month later in October 2016.
Now, this is commonly seen in all new generation Skoda cars like the Superb and the Octavia. The petrol version will be powered by a 2.0-litre TSI petrol unit that produces 230 hp paired to a six-speed DSG.
Skoda is also relaunching Skoda Octavia RS in India that will be priced at 20 lakhs. New infotainment and connectivity systems as well as better driver assistance systems will be part of the new vehicle too, along with sporty interiors.
Not much will change under the hood, though, with the same 1.6-litre MPI petrol engine or 1.5-litre diesel engine running the vehicle. The special edition will get blacked out front grille, roof, alloy wheels, boot lid spoiler, wing mirrors, bumper and side skirts.
Skoda dealerships will also accept advanced bookings for Skoda Kodiaq, whereas the SUV will be delivered sometime in the fourth quarter of this year.
Skoda's new SUV Kodiaq has officially also been unveiled. Now although this high-performance sedan is available globally in both petrol and diesel forms, the vRS for India will come in the full-fat 230bhp petrol avatar.
And while the Indian markets wait for these three vehicles from the Czech auto manufacturer, the company is mulling over bringing its recently launched SUV, Karoq, to India, reports quoting senior officials from the company stated. Global spec Skoda Kodiaq has already driven and has impressed by its build quality, features and performance that is why we expected a lot of them to come to India. The turbocharged petrol unit of the 2 litres, 4 cylinder churns out 177 bhp of max power production and 340 Nm of max torque.
