      The most significant change for the India-spec Kodiaq will be in the form of a new 1,984cc, four-cylinder, turbocharged petrol motor mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Interestingly, the Kodiaq is most likely to get the same engine available in the new Tiguan, which produces 188bhp and 320Nm.

      Debuted in 2016, the Kodiaq uses VW Group’s MQB A2 platform. The VW Tiguan and Seat Tarraco utilise the same architecture. More to the point, Skoda showcased the Kodiaq facelift globally in April this year. This updated Kodiaq received a redesigned face, bumpers, wheels and tweaked rear lights.
