SKODA has reopened the order books for the 2022 KODIAQ in India against a token amount of Rs. 50,000. The SUV has also received a price hike of Rs. 2.5 lakh across all variants.

Why does this story matter?
SKODA is renowned across the globe for creating reliable and value-for-money offerings in the hatchback, sedan, EV, and SUV categories. The carmaker had introduced the KODIAQ in 2016 as a mid-size SUV. It was received warmly by critics and customers alike for its tech-forward cabin and capable powertrain options. The facelifted model made its comeback in the Indian market after being discontinued in 2020.
The SUV has chrome-surrounded grille and 18-inch alloy wheels
The 2022 SKODA KODIAQ flaunts an aggressive design language and features a clamshell hood, a signature chrome-surrounded butterfly grille, crystalline LED headlights with DRLs and a wide air dam. The SUV is flanked by roof rails, blacked-out pillars, indicator-mounted ORVMs, and 18-inch Askella anthracite alloy wheels. Wrap-around LED taillights, a shark-fin antenna, and a roof-mounted spoiler grace the rear end.
It is offered with a 2.0-liter turbo-petrol engine
The 2022 KODIAQ is available with a potent 2.0-liter, inline-four, TSI petrol engine that is mated to a 7-speed DSG gearbox, along with an all-wheel-drive system. The mill churns out a maximum power of 190hp and a peak torque of 320Nm.
It gets three-zone climate control and panoramic sunroof
On the inside, the SKODA KODIAQ has a spacious seven-seater cabin with a dual-tone dashboard, leather upholstery, panoramic sunroof, ambient lighting, powered front seats, three-zone climate control, and a multifunctional steering wheel. The SUV houses a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster and an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment panel with the latest connectivity options. The passengers' safety is ensured by nine airbags and a park assist system.
