The new Skoda Kodiaq is all set to go to sale in India today and we are here bringing the launch updates live.
It is an exciting news for any automaker to launch a 7-seater SUV. Skoda Kodiaq is final here after a long hiatus and at the launch, only a single variant of the Kodiaq is going to be available. This is the variant that will go against the likes of Toyota Fortuner and the Ford Endeavour.
For now, the Kodiaq is going to be available with only for the 2.0-litre diesel engine that is oupled to an automatic transmission in an all-wheel drive setup. However, a new version in 2.0-litre petrol is likely to be introduced after a few months, mostly the next year.

Skoda values safety measures a bit too seriously. The Kodiaq is getting 9 airbags as a standard segment and in addition to this, there will be host of the other features like ABS, ESP, traction control, reverse-parking camera, all-round parking sensors. The European Skoda Kodiaq got a 5-star rating from NCAP.
Now, we lall come to the all-important point, i.e.., pricing of Skoda Kodiaq. The company claims that it will settle at about where the superb tops off. So, we are expecting the pricing range between INR 34.49 Lakh. Anything higher and Skoda would lose an opportunity. That is a bit more, but anyhow, the brand-new Skoda Kodiaq is planning to arrive after Diwali 2017.
