Skoda Kodiaq Highlights
The Skoda Kodiaq Scout is the off-road variant of the Skoda Kodiaq. This version of the car comes with a couple of exterior updates. The front now gets new skid plates and the rear has a grille surround. The LED headlamps, however, has been carried over as they were. The car has silver roof railings, 18-inch alloy wheels, matte silver wing mirror housings and the chrome strips around the side window. The rear bumper of the car comes with a silver protective cover that borders the exhaust pipes and the diffuser. The Scout features the Skoda-typical C-shape LED taillights. This is also the first car in India that has ‘Skoda’ in block letters on the tailgate instead of the Skoda logo.
The interior of the car has an all-black cabin now. The seats come wrapped in black Alcantara leather upholstery with a Scout logo on the backrest. The wooden decor and other decorative elements have been complemented by chrome highlights to give an elegant look. The cabin is quite spacious and provides comfortable seats, good all-round visibility, and the capacity to accommodate seven people. The LED ambient lighting comes in ten colour options, and the boot also has a good amount of space. The features of Skoda Kodiaq Scout include a digital instrument cluster, a touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a three-zone Climatronic air conditioning, 10-speaker Canton sound system, park assist, cruise control, ambient lighting, panoramic sunroof, electrically adjustable seats, and more. The safety features of the car include nine airbags, a tyre pressure monitoring system, 360-degree cameras, engine immobiliser, fatigue alert, acoustic warning signal for overrun speed, and more.
Skoda Kodiaq is powered by the 2.0-litre TDI diesel that produces 147bhp of maximum power and 340Nm of peak torque. The engine comes with a seven-speed DSG automatic transmission. The engine is quite refined and the NVH levels provide complete silence once the windows are up. Kodiaq Scout competes with SUVs like Toyota Fortuner, Mahindra Alturas G4, Ford Endeavour, and Isuzu MU-X.
