Skoda Kodiaq India – Exterior

The Skoda Kodiaq  SUV seems to  take inspiration from the Vision S SUV concept. It boasts of Skoda’s signature styling elements. From the front, the new Kodiaq features sleek LED headlamps with DRLs  and a chrome grille. The fog lamps are a look a tad unconventional in terms of placement and shape. Skoda says that, the double horizontal lines running across is reminiscent of “protection as well as strength”. The primary highlight of the side profile is the greatly recessed tornado line which runs from the upper headlamps across the entire profile. The large glass area is visible in the Kodiaq’s side profile which gives a sense of  generous cabin space. Coming to the back, one gets a typical Skoda boot lid profile with the stunning recessed number plate area. The tail lamps also feature LED detailing in the form of the signature ‘C’ motif design.

Skoda Kodiaq India – Interior

When it comes to the interiors , the designers have kept things very simple but still elegant. The dashboard is neat  with clean straight lines. The touchscreen infotainment system is quite obviously located at the centre. Below that, the climate control setup bears great resemblance with  the Superb’s. Other bits like the  gear knob and steering wheel have been borrowed from the Superb as well. The 2017 Skoda Kodiaq will be a seven seater, which is a  first for Skoda. Outside of India, the Kodiaq is available in a five seater and seven seater configuration. India would be getting  only the seven seat variant of the Kodiaq. Since there is no third row of seats, the Kodiaq boasts a huge 720 L luggage capacity. While the production spec Kodiaq did not had the individual screen setup seen in the Vision S concept, the rear seat passengers do get a state of the art tablet holder.
