Since the L&K variants of Octavia and Superb were previously launched in India, we can surely expect Skoda to consider the same for Kodiaq.
Skoda has revealed the Kodiaq L&K, which will serve as the top-spec variant of the company’s flagship SUV. The new model will be showcased at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show.
The L&K equipment line, which is named after the company's founders - Laurin and Klement - always serves as the most lavishly equipped variant of its respective car model. In Kodiaq’s case, a chrome grille, 19-inch alloy wheels and modified bumpers are the most prominent changes on the new model’s exterior.
The interior boasts leather upholstery and piano-black decorative trim. More standard equipment includes an electrically adjustable driver's seat including memory function, door sills, aluminium pedals, textile floor mats, rain sensor, auto-dimming rear-view mirror, ambient lighting and Canton sound system.
Unlike the India-spec model, the global Kodiq is available with a wide variety of petrol and diesel powertrains, which will be carried onto the L&K variant. The range includes a 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine providing 148bhp, a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol with 187bhp, and a 2.0-litre diesel with either 148bhp or 187bhp. AWD comes standard on the more powerful models, while is offered as an option on others. Skoda also claims that the petrol engines have been tweaked to reduce polluting particulate emissions.
There is no word on this fully-spec’d Kodiaq launching in India. Presently, the India-spec Skoda Kodiaq is only available in a single variant, which is priced at Rs 34.50 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
