Czech carmaker Skoda is popular for its extensive and all around built vehicles. The organization initially began its innings in India with the determinedly manufactured Octavia, trailed by the greater and more extravagant Superb, and it hasn’t thought back since. Indeed, there has been some administration related good and bad times, where the brand has taken a thump. In any case, regardless of these, the Octavia and the Superb figured out how to cut out a specialty for themselves. What works so well for Skoda in India is that the models convey a huge measure of auto for the cash; precisely what Indian auto purchasers need. Improves? The appropriate response is no.
Skoda, be that as it may, hasn’t been enthusiastic about SUVs. Actually, frankly, it appears to have missed the vessel totally. Truly, the peculiar Yeti – sold in India from 2010 up until early this year – was in fact
an SUV and it accompanied a 4×4 framework as well, however its horrible cost to-estimate proportion and crackpot styling implied clients wound up spending their cash somewhere else.
In any case, that is set to change now. Skoda’s new-gen SUVs will be huge, exceptionally extensive, traditionally alluring and, similar to its vehicles, stacked to the gills with highlights. The Kodiaq we have here is the first of Skoda’s new-age SUVs.
It seats seven, accompanies a complex and current inside, and loads and heaps of tech. The Kodiaq isn’t shabby, be that as it may, similar to the range-topping Superb, it guarantees to convey the full extravagance SUV involvement with a premium. Question is, is there enough extravagance SUV here to legitimize the ex-showroom cost of Rs 34.49 lakh? At this value, it isn’t too far-removed from smaller extravagance SUVs like the Audi Q3 and BMW X1, and on the off chance that you need something tough and fit for handling genuine rough terrain challenges, there’s the splendid Ford Endeavor and Toyota’s impenetrable Fortuner to battle with.
So can the Kodiaq – named after the island in Alaska that is home to the biggest wild bear on the planet – offer the best adjust of extravagance, common sense, tough interest and solace? It’s a major inquiry.
