Customers can now buy the all-new Skoda Kodiaq in 2023 only. Unfortunately, there are no more Kodiaqs available in 2022 due to high demand. The next batch of the SUV is expected to be pricier.
In 2022, the Skoda Kodiaq came back with a redesigned front end and a new powertrain. According to Skoda India, overwhelming demand led to a 24-hour sell-out of the first batch of the Kodiaq. There were 1,200 units allocated for 2022, but they are now all sold out.
However, Skoda Kodiaq’s next batch will likely launch by the final quarter. Customers should expect to pay an extra Rs 1 lakh for the latest model. The SUV will be available in three trim levels, with pricing ranging from Rs 35.99 lakh (ex-showroom) to Rs 38.49 lakh (ex-showroom).
Skoda was able to price the Kodiaq aggressively because of the CKD route. Skoda’s Aurangabad plant is where the SUV is assembled. Toyota Fortuner, Mahindra Alturas, Isuzu MU-X, and MG Glosterare are the major competitors of the new Kodiaq.
A 187bhp, 320Nm, 2.0-liter petrol engine powers the car, and a seven-speed DSG gearbox transfers all of the engine’s torque to all four wheels. There are no diesel engine options.
