Overview

Unquestionably, SUVs these days are one of the most preferred segments. Right from compact SUVs to mid-size and full-fledged luxury SUVs, buyers are not deterred from choosing one of their favourites. So, bringing the premium Skoda Kodiaq in the Indian market was not at all surprising. But it was certainly a moment of surprise for Endeavour and Fortuner enthusiasts, the two stalwarts which are ruling this segment for a long time. The Czech automaker showcased its production version in August 2016. The Kodiaq is based on the Vision S revealed at the Geneva Motor Show. Its global debut was made at the Paris Motor Show 2016. The Skoda Kodiaq is a premium vehicle that handles mild off-roading and good for day to day driving. It’s a perfect option for the buyers who want something more premium and luxurious against its rivals. The Kodiaq with attractive styling, exude class and the use of fast DSG transmission makes it one of the most drivable SUVs in its class.
On the outside, Skoda Kodiaq is indeed a handsome and smart looking SUV. The car is based on the same platform (MQB) as seen in the Tiguan. The Kodiaq offers seven seating arrangement. The vehicle has been evolved from the Vision S concept which was first showcased in Geneva Motor Show. Skoda Kodiaq is typical euro-car affair that means it’s unostentatious and has the same aura as we see in current Audi Q7. The attractive Skoda Kodiaq has immense road presence. At the front, the car features no excessive use of chrome, the signature butterfly radiator grille looks attractive. The car gets full LED headlights and DRLs. The headlamps are quite long and stretch back on the front fender while the LED fog lamps are placed below the headlamp. The lower bumper gets a split air dam and the bonnet gets creases with a prominent hump in the middle. On the sides, Skoda Kodiaq features 18-inch alloy wheels which Skoda calls as ‘Trinity’, it gets angular wheel arches. At the back, Skoda Kodiaq looks quite appealing, the rear bumper is attractive and features a body coloured lower part. All in all, Skoda Kodiaq is the one muscular looking SUV along with crisp detailing. Dimensionally, Skoda Kodiaq measures 4697mm in length, 1882mm in width and 1676mm in height. The overall wheelbase stands at 2791mm and the ground clearance is 187mm. Skoda Kodiaq is available in vibrant shades that include Lava Blue, Magic Black, Moon white, Magnetic Brown and Quartz Grey.
Checking on the interiors, Skoda Kodiaq is big, rides high and has the capacity to seat at least 7 occupants. The cabin is pretty well rounded and well layered like Octavia and Superb. The dash is low set and uses the light materials quite cleverly. Placed at the centre of the dash is the attractive 8-inch touchscreen infotainment display that supports Android Auto, MirrorLink and Apple CarPlay. The car gets 12-speaker high-end sound system. Being a car from Skoda it is not surprising that the vehicle has long list of feature. The comfort aspects includes cruise control, rear parking sensor, electrically adjustable rear view mirror, push start/stop button, three-zone climate control, height adjustable driver seat and upholstery. Other additional features are GPS navigation, panoramic sunroof, electric tailgate, steering adjustment, lumbar support, paddle shift and steering mounted audio controls.
Under the hood, Skoda Kodiaq is powered by the 2.0L TDI oil burner. The diesel powertrain is capable of generating the power output of 150PS and belts out the maximum torque of 340Nm. The engine comes mated to 7 speed DSG gearbox. The power is delivered to the wheels through all-wheel drive system. The vehicle returns the claimed mileage figures of 16.25kmpl. The Skoda Kodiaq is available in various driving modes for a better experience. The ride quality of the car is quite stable as it rides over the potholes and uneven roads with ease.
As for the safety, Skoda Kodiaq is fully loaded with numerous safety features. The list includes 9 airbags, ABS with EBD, Brake Assist, Electronic Stability Program, Hill Assist, Traction Control, Engine immobilizer, Central locking, child safety lock, Automatic headlamps, power door lock and cornering Lights. Other safety aspects include Rear wiper, Rain sensing Wipers, multi-collision braking system, fatigue alert system, headlight washers, headlamp beam adjuster and anti-theft alarm.
Skoda Kodiaq is available only in 2 variant they are Style and Laurin & Klement. As it falls under the luxurious SUV segment, the pricing is done accordingly. The Kodiaq 2.0 TDI Style trim is tagged at Rs. 34.49 lakh while the top of the range Kodiaq 2.0 TDI Laurin & Klement is available at the price tag of Rs. 35.99 lakh, ex-showroom. Skoda Kodiaq rivals against the likes in the segment that includes Ford Endeavour, Toyota Fortuner, Mitsubishi Pajero Sport, Isuzu Mu-X and Volkswagen Tiguan.

Interior

The very first thing you will see in this giant SUV is how easy is enter into the cabin. The vehicle doesn’t sit too high off the surface, even older adults can experience easy ingress. And not to forget the door protectors which are responsible for guarding the edges of the door, you don’t ding anyone else in a tight spot. Step inside and one will realize that the layout of the cabin is attractive and first-rate. To start with, the 8-inch touchscreen infotainment features Smartlink connectivity which includes technologies such as Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and MirrorLink.
The same screen does a lot of things like doubling up for displaying feeds from reverse parking camera, giving driving analytics as well as giving access to climate control system. Even the multi-information display which is the same as in Skoda Octavia, is quite detailed showing wide range of information including trip and efficiency, turn-by-turn navigation, travelling time, distance to empty, current and average speed, oil temperature, music source, etc. For people cautious about the environment, the vehicle also provides carbon footprint data and suggests methods to drive the car more efficiently.
In terms of response, the touchscreen unit is quite snappy and can play music through various mediums including USB, Aux-in, Bluetooth and microSD card. And the decibels are powered by high-end 485-watt 10-speakers system with subwoofer provided by Canton which gives immersive experience. Moreover, one can also download the OneApp or Skoda Boss Connect app which makes your phone capable of controlling the infotainment system as well as the AC settings. Another fantastic feature is a driver side mic which allows the driver to talk to the rear passengers without shouting or turning his head back.
The Laurin Klement edition boasts a number of enhancements. The biggest one is the virtual instrument cluster that was debuted first in the Octavia sedan. The 12.3-inch high definition multi-information display is a trickle down technology shared from Audi but still looks futuristic in every sense. The system gets a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 30 processor which the company says gives smooth swift between the menus. And since it’s a digital display, it can be customizable and the driver can select from five different layouts viz. Classic, Modern, Extended, Basic and Sports. The instrument cluster can also display navigation maps with tons of other functions including current music info.
Other unique touches given to this variant include black and beige leather upholstery and the dashboard finished in black piano lacquer. The Laurin & Klement branding can be seen on the same instrument cluster, on the seats, dashboard panel as well as on the homescreen of the infotainment unit. The standard Style variant gets ‘dark brushed’ scheme.
The steering does not have electric adjustment functionality, however, it does offer reach and rake. The car comes with all power windows which can be operated via one-touch up/down, a feature which is common in VW cars. Coming to the seating and space, the driver gets wonderful view of the road ahead with the seats (including that of co-passenger) electrically adjustable and comes with memory function for storing different driving position. However, for unknown reasons, the Czech automaker has skipped the ventilated seats.
Moving to the 2nd row, the seats there are quite comfortable offering sufficient room for as tall as 6 footers. The seats are also wide enough to absorb three passengers with ease but the middle passenger should be of low height as he would feel problem adjusting his feet in the presence of climate control console and central tunnel. The position of the rear ac vents seems to be quite low and there are high chances of passengers’ knees blocking the air flow. The 2nd row passenger also get power nap package which includes a blanket, few pillows and lateral headrest supports.
Getting into the third row is a bit tricky because the second does not tumble forward, however it can be foldable so you can hop on to it and go to the third row. And in a monocoque based SUV, the third row isn’t special to mention about. The last row is usable but best for kids or short adults and they won’t mind sitting there for about 150-200 kms. The seats are placed directly on the boot floor so the knees will point upward. But the good thing is that the backrest is pretty well-sized and one wouldn’t feel claustrophobic here, thanks to the big glass area and a plus size sunroof.
However, the third row passengers are devoid of any ac vents which could be a real problem, especially in hot summers. So, the best way is to run the AC at full blast well before the third row passengers step in. The real advantage of owning a Skoda car is the level of quality, everything around feels premium to touch. The boot space is meagre 270L with all the rows in default place but with third row seats folded, the boot space can increase up to 630 litres. And with both second and third row seats folded, the boot space is humongous 2005 litres.
In terms of storage, you get plenty of them. These include front glovebox with cooling and illumination, jumbo box storage compartment with easy opening bottle holder, co-driver upper storage compartment, bottle holder in the centre console, storage compartments in the front and rear doors, cup holder in the rear centre armrest, storage box under the steering wheel, storage compartment at the front centre console, pockets on the front seat back and removable rear shelf.
Other comfort features in the car include cruise control, automatic front wiper system and rain sensor, engine start/stop button, virtual foot swipe boot opening, colour programmable ambient lighting, reading spot lamps for all three rows, 12V power socket at the front and the rear and coat hook at the rear roof handles. Without any doubt, Skoda Kodiaq is notches ahead of its rivals in terms of comfort and convenience.

Exterior

Unlike the other SUVs in the segment, the words imposing, daunting and threatening are not the appropriate words to describe this SUV. The Skoda Kodiaq is a typical European car which means it is understated and gives similar sense as the likes of sibling Audi Q7. That said, it will certainly divide opinions because as a small group will prefer the low-key design, the huge majority still prefer that the SUV they buy should give them a sense of power and authority on the road. But there are crisp details and bold creases all around that does attract the eyeballs.
At the front, you will find the signature butterfly grille with chrome surrounds. The all-LED headlights with LED DRLs look contemporary and appear to be seamlessly integrated with the grille. There is a split air dam at the lower bumper but actually, the middle part takes air inside while both the sides are shut off. The same honeycomb air dam also features parking sensors. The bonnet features four creases with a protruding bulge in the centre to give that brawny stance.
The side profile makes things further clear with 188mm ground clearance and 18-inch graceful alloy wheels fitted in squared-off wheel arches. To give it the needed beefy stance, the carmaker has given plastic cladding all around but still it doesn’t match the street cred of the rivals. The roof rails feel solid and seem to have been attached firmly. The ORVMs not only have integrated turn indicators but a special feature known as LED boarding spots designed to light up the entry area. And the way roof slopes down to the rear looks really awesome, giving it a squat stance.
At the rear, there are crystalline design elements on the tail lights which look fabulous at night. The roof-mounted spoiler also features high-mounted stop lamp. Another interesting visual addition at the back is the honeycomb strip at the bottom of the boot lid which actually acts as a shut line for the tailgate as well as prevents the body coloured bumper from scraping while loading and unloading. The lower portion of the bumper features diffuser-like styling housing 6 parking sensors. The twin exhausts point downward and aren’t visible when the car is viewed from rear.
The Laurin & Klement edition has some distinctive elements such more chrome detailing on the vertical slats of the front grille. The lower half of the front bumper is body coloured featuring sharp looking aero inserts. The L&K model also boasts of silver roof rails replacing the black in the Style variant. There are also Laurin & Klement branding on the front fenders. And like the front bumpers, the rear one too is restyled with the lower section body coloured. Further, the uniqueness is evident from a chrome applique running across the width of the vehicle. And lastly, the L&K model is available in exclusive brown colour besides the standard colour options in the Style variant.

Mileage Running Cost

There is not much to ask in terms of fuel efficiency when it comes to SUVs, but the Kodiaq is definitely ahead of its rivals. While the ARAI certified mileage of Kodiaq stands at 16.25kmpl, the real world numbers differ as it can return anything between 12-14kmpl.

Comfort Suspension

One of the best parts of this car is its drivability. The Kodiaq not only drives like a sedan but also offer similar ride quality. The most prominent difference between Kodiaq and its rivals is that there is no vertical bobbing while driving, especially at high speeds. The car feels planted something similar like sedans. However, on the contrary, the suspension offers a limited travel range and once the road turns ugly, the car leaves little in terms of comfort.
The sharp bumps will certainly make their way into the cabin. To put this in simple words, it is better to treat this car like sibling Octavia rather than rival Endeavour. Road undulations will leave the passengers tossing inside, reminding you the traits of a sedan. Without the help of adjustable dampers, the sharp bumps will return crack and occasional thump from the suspension. So, it’s better to speed up when you see light broken patches on the roads.
However, when it comes to response from steering, it is light, quick and direct. Especially, when you are driving in the city, hardly any effort is needed. Hence, driving in the city is quite lively while on the highway it becomes neat and tidy. One can also switch to Sport mode to add a needed dose of weight on the steering with increase throttle response to make the vehicle more engaging. However, cornering will leave a lot of body-roll which is normal in such cars.

Engine Performance

The Skoda Kodiaq is one of the finest examples of why a car shouldn’t be evaluated just on the official numbers. The 150PS is definitely low on paper especially when we compare it to behemoths like Fortuner and Endeavour which makes 30-50PS more. But does the low numbers really matters? The answer would be no. The 2.0L –cylinder turbocharged engine is good enough to cross the 100kmph mark from naught in just 10.3 seconds. This is nearly 2 seconds and half a second quicker than Fortuner and Endeavour respectively.
The reason for this magic is that Kodiaq is considerably lighter as it weighs 1799 kgs as compared to Fortuner’s 2140 kgs and Endeavour’s 2400 kgs. Hence, the power to weight ratio works in favour of Kodiaq. The additional 350-600 kgs weight is like comparing a fully passenger loaded Kodiaq to passenger-free Fortuner and Endeavour. That means a lot. Further, the 7-speed DSG gearbox is far quicker than any other 7-seater rival in the segment.
All this also means that the drivability is a breeze in Kodiaq, especially on highways. The engine has a solid 340Nm of torque which is available from as low as 1700 rpm and light thrust is enough to start with and work up till you reach the cruising speeds. The car does have paddle shifter but you would hardly use it unless the driving is harsh. The Kodiaq is undoubtedly a relaxed cruiser, however, that does not mean there is no need for more power. There are different modes in the car including Normal, Eco, Sport, Individual and Snow that would change the driving dynamics accordingly.
If you are paying this much of money, you won’t just simply satisfy with ‘adequate’. The car lacks the needed punch on highways and if you rev it hard, the engine starts to feel exhausted. If you want more beyond 3500 rpm, then you will be disappointed. This also means overtaking on highways will require some planning in advance. Overall, the Kodiaq is a good option for daily commute while at the same time offering great touring abilities. And while performance will match most people’s needs, some extra power would be definitely better, especially when the car is fully loaded with passengers.

Braking Safety

The all-round disc brakes work just fine as you would expect in a Skoda car. The bite force is confidence inspiring and with electronic aids such as ABS with EBD, Mechanical Brake Assist, Hydraulic Brake Assistant, Multi-collision Braking and Hydraulic Braking System Readiness (Prefill), you have dominance of the road ahead.
And with features such as 9 airbags, ISOFIX child mount, Anti Slip Regulation, Electronic Differential lock, auto dimming IRVM, front and rear defogger, adaptive headlights, reverse parking camera with sensors, driver seatbelt warning and fatigue alert system, the car really lives up to its brand’s name.
