The much-awaited Skoda Kodiaq launched in Indian markets on Wednesday. One year post the International release, Czech automaker Skoda is bringing its flagship SUV to India, much to the distress of its competitors.

Kodiaq is the company's first seven-seater to be offered in the country. The 4,697 mm long SUV will be 1,882 mm wide, 1,665 mm tall and is expected to have a wheelbase of 2,791 mm. The expandable luggage space offers 270 litres of volume along with 188 mm ground clearance.

The 2.0-Litre turbocharged diesel engine paired with the seven-speed DSG automatic transmission can produce 150bhp at 3,500-4,000rpm and a peak torque of 340Nm at 1,750-3,000rpm. A petrol engine version is also expected to be released later.

The large radiator grille at the front gives it a sporty look whereas the two double-headlights add to the overall appeal. The standardised 9 airbags ensure safety whereas the all-round parking sensors and the reverse-parking camera adds to the smooth parking ability.

Skoda Kodiaq is expected to offer three trim levels – Active, Ambition and Style, with many other ultra-modern styles paired in the interiors. Apart from the Touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, an Android Auto, dual-zone automatic climate control and electric driver seat are some other features of the SUV.

The SUV will be locally assembled in India and sold with the price tag of around Rs 30 lakh (ex-showroom).
