Need a reason to pick a Skoda Kodiaq? We’ll give you 5. Plus, there’s benefits of ₹2.4 lakh if you book it today

The Skoda Kodiaq packs some clever kit that gives it an edge over its rivals. And to make it even more compelling, the brand is offering benefits worth ₹2.4 lakh on it!

We are big fans of the Skoda Kodiaq because it's one of the best SUVs that you can buy in India. In true Skoda fashion, it deploys some intelligent features, a potent 2-litre TSI engine, and offers a proper Jekyll and Hyde driving experience – combining sportiness and comfort brilliantly.  Now though, the cherry on the top with the Kodiaq comes in the form of benefits worth ₹2.4 lakh. But before we get to that, here are five reasons why we absolutely adore this SUV.

Reason 1 – The TSI engine

Powering the Kodiaq is a 2-litre TSI engine that churns out 190PS and 320Nm of peak torque. This mill is mated to a seven-speed DSG and is an absolute gem. It is creamy smooth as well as punchy and does the 0-100kmph run in just 7.8 seconds. This engine has a split personality – it is calm when you want it to be, but rapid when pushed. And the transmission provides snappy, effortless shifts, no matter how hard you're on it.

Reason 2 – It is fun to drive

The Skoda Kodiaq is fun to drive not only because of its engine, but also because of its chassis set up. It can be both comfortable and sporty, because of this adaptive suspension setup. The Kodiaq has four drive modes, one individual mode, and even an off-road mode that gives it a wide breadth of ability. Moreover, it gets all-wheel-drive as standard which aids surefootedness, no matter what the terrain.

Reason 3 – Best-in-class interiors

The Indian market gets the Kodiaq in its top-of-the-line L&K (Laurin and Klement) trim, which comes loaded with features. You get a 10.25-inch ‘Virtual Cockpit’ digital cluster which is configurable, three-zone climate control, a panoramic sunroof, an 8-inch infotainment touchscreen supporting wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a 360-degree camera, memory seats with heating and ventilation, and a banging 11-speaker Canton sound system complete with a subwoofer.

 The Kodiaq is also plenty spacious. It features a seven-seat layout with lots of room and modularity that makes it oh-so-practical. When the third row is folded flat, you’re treated to a massive 2005-litre boot. To make life easier the Kodiaq gets the ‘Virtual Pedal’ touch-free tailgate opener that comes in handy when your hands are full and you want to open the boot.

Reason 4 – Not just a fat features list, but a smart one

The Kodiaq is a Skoda and befittingly, it gets some rather clever features that make so much sense. Things like the door edge protectors, which deploy when you open the doors to protect them from dings, the ticket holder on the windscreen which allows you to hold parking/ toll tickets securely, the built-in umbrella pockets in the doors, and our favourite – the ‘Nap Package' which includes pillows and headrest extensions allowing you to nap well in the backseat.

Reason 5 – It's safe

The Kodiaq has a full 5-star Euro NCAP rating for adults and children. In addition to traction control and ABS, it gets no less than nine airbags, a tyre pressure monitoring system, multi-collision braking, park assist with hands-free parking, adaptive full LED headlights, rear fog lights and even driver fatigue alert.
