The upcoming Skoda Kodiaq SUV is stated to have a long base, which means that it might offer ample space for the occupants. The slat raked headlamps compliment the wide grille. The two seats in the third row will be offered as option. As for the rear, the SUV gets C-shaped LED rear lights. Based on test mule which was spotted earlier, the interior is likely to get a neat finish and feature four large air vents. The test mule featured a large display that splits the three-dimensional instrument panel into two equal sections for the driver as well as the passenger. It is believed that apart from comfort aspect, the interior will also focus on functionality.

Speaking about the Kodiaq SUV, Jozef Kaban said, “The Kodiaq is extremely versatile. It is robust, suits all types of terrain and offers the best flexibility and functionality. We wanted to visualise this in the exterior design as well as the interior. The crystalline and striking appearance also underlines the strength and character of the SKODA Kodiaq.”

We believe that the Indian launch might happen by last quarter of 2017 and the car will be introduced via the CKD route. Post launch, the Skoda Kodiaq is expected to rival the likes of Land Rover’s Discovery Sport.
