Skoda has designed the next-gen Kodiaq on criteria including character in design, extraordinary space for occupants and practical intelligence. According to this Czech automaker, this new SUV provides 920mm headroom in its third row as well as plenty of boot space.

The 2024 Kodiaq will use VW Group’s modular MQB Evo platform and will offer both petrol and diesel engines, along with plug-in hybrid and mild hybrid powertrain options.Next-Generation Skoda

Style-wise, the next-gen Kodiaq features an upgraded front grille with taller slats than before and an enlarged Skoda logo, new split headlamps and bumper for an aggressive appearance and updated side profile and squared wheel arches with squared-off wheel arches and new alloy wheels for contemporary flair. C-shaped LED tail-lights complete its contemporary appeal.Next-Generation Skoda

Inside, the Kodiaq will boast a luxurious cabin complete with 13-inch touchscreen infotainment system and virtual instrument cluster, along with driver assistance systems, ambient lighting control and climate control features.Next-Generation Skoda

Skoda will import its new Kodiaq as a completely knocked down (CKD) vehicle to ensure cost-competitiveness with other models like the Nissan Magnite, Renault Kiger, Kia Sonet and Hyundai Venue; plus Mahindra XUV 3XO due to be launched later.Next-Generation Skoda

Next-Generation Skoda Interior

The new Kodiaq boasts a more refined design compared to its predecessor. It now sports sleek shoulder lines, more defined bonnet lines, LED Matrix headlights, and an updated bumper. Furthermore, its rear features LED tail lights as well as a revised D-pillar.Next-Generation Skoda

Skoda’s sub-4-metre SUV will be constructed on the MQB-A0-IN platform shared with Kushaq and Slavia models. This camouflaged unit has compact proportions with signature butterfly grille design elements from both brands as well as digital instrument cluster.Next-Generation Skoda

It will likely also feature an updated dashboard layout with an expanded free-standing infotainment system and relocated gear selector, along with smart rotary controls providing quick access to various in-car functions. In addition, Travel Assist should help make driving through difficult terrain easier for the driver.

Globally, the new-generation Kodiaq can be had with various engine options – 1.5-litre mild hybrid and 2.0-litre petrol units among them – but in India the three-row premium SUV may remain with its current 2.0-litre petrol motor producing 190bhp and 320 Nm of torque, coupled with seven-speed DSG transmission sending power all four wheels. This will enable it to compete against Toyota Fortuner and Ford Endeavour among others.Next-Generation Skoda

Next-Generation Skoda Engine

Skoda Kodiaq will likely come equipped with both petrol and diesel powertrain options when it arrives here in India, along with a potential plug-in hybrid variant which may also be launched alongside its regular car counterpart.

The new Kodiaq offers an evolutionary design compared to its predecessor, featuring a familiar butterfly grille which now takes up more space, accompanied by sleek LED headlights. Furthermore, its front bumper has been altered, while keen readers may spot an ADAS radar mounted under its lower grille for easy detection of potential hazards.

From the side, the SUV continues to appear similar but is larger thanks to a longer wheelbase. At the back, however, redesigned LED taillights and a raked windshield give it an updated silhouette.

Under its hood, the Kodiaq may use the same 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine found on its current Indian model. This engine comes mated to a seven-speed DSG automatic transmission and drives all four wheels – producing up to 201bhp and 320 Nm respectively. Furthermore, 48V mild hybrid setup with cylinder deactivation technology could further enhance fuel efficiency for improved efficiency in India. In international markets however, another 2.0-litre diesel engine producing 148bhp is available as an option on Kodiaq models sold internationally –

The Skoda Kodiaq has quickly established itself in India through its competitive price point and attractive features. Following its new facelift, it now stands to compete more effectively against rival models such as the Tata Harrier, Toyota Fortuner, MG GS and Jeep Meridian.

The new-generation Skoda Kodiaq has retained much of the exterior design from its predecessor and this is to its credit; it looks spectacular. Combining Skoda’s signature Modern Solid design language with an eye-catching front lighting strip and updated version of their badge, large wraparound rear lights with silver rear pillars add to its glamour while its refreshed Bronx Gold paint gives it an added appeal.

Skoda has upgraded their grille design, adding LED daytime running lamps for an updated appearance. At the rear, their SUV also sports an additional light bar featuring their wordmark as well as an eye-catching roof spoiler to complete its modern aesthetic.

The Skoda Kodiaq offers an accommodating seven-seat layout and its boot can expand to an impressive 720 litres when seats are folded down, as well as 4×4 drive system capabilities. Available globally with various petrol and diesel engines and mild/plug hybrid powertrain options; in India likely featuring 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine producing 188bhp with 320Nm torque coupled with 7-speed DSG automatic transmission.
