The international market has recently witnessed the introduction of the 2024 Skoda Kodiaq, showcasing a range of fresh design enhancements and novel features. This article will delve into the notable updates present in the latest iteration of the Kodiaq model.
Design of the Skoda Kodiaq
A significant shift in design becomes immediately apparent when comparing the new model to its current Indian counterpart. The car’s front design adheres to Skoda’s traditional design language, evoking reminiscences of models such as the Kushaq and the Slavia. Furthermore, the inclusion of new alloy wheels, while not particularly striking in appearance, still maintains a decent aesthetic appeal.
At the rear, the new Kodiaq model from Skoda introduces connected taillights, a design choice that may not resonate with everyone’s aesthetic preferences. This feature has the potential to be polarizing in terms of design, eliciting varied opinions from those who encounter it.
Interior and features of the new Kodiaq
The new Kodiaq model boasts an abundance of features that enhance its overall appeal. It preserves the two-spoke steering wheel design seen in the Slavia and the Kushaq, maintaining a consistent brand aesthetic. Furthermore, the interior is equipped with a fresh instrument cluster and a 10.25-inch touchscreen display. Skoda has integrated a plethora of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) features into the car, making it a futuristic and safer choice. Additionally, the Kodiaq offers a panoramic sunroof, a wireless charger, and a remarkable standard feature of nine airbags, further elevating its desirability.
Engine options on the Kodiaq
The new Kodiaq offers a variety of engine options, catering to diverse preferences. Among them are the 2-liter TSI petrol engine and the 2-liter diesel engine. Additionally, there is a 1.5-liter mild hybrid TSI engine, delivering an impressive 147 BHP of power. Both petrol engines are coupled with the smooth 7-speed DSG transmission, with the 2-liter engine offering an optional AWD configuration. Meanwhile, the 1.5-liter engine pairs with the 7-speed DSG exclusively for the FWD variants. For those prioritizing fuel efficiency, there’s the option of the 1.5-liter petrol engine with a plug-in hybrid, boasting 201 BHP and a 6-speed gearbox. Additionally, the plug-in hybrid variant promises an extensive 100 km electric range, thanks to its 25.7 kWh battery pack, which also supports fast charging.
Will it come to India?
There are very less chances that Skoda will launch the car in the Indian market. They are planning for a Brezza competitor that they will bring in some time to the Indian market.
