Skoda introduced the updated Kodiaq globally last year, with a more angular appearance, luxurious interior, and enhanced equipment. Although there has been no official announcement, the updated edition is expected to be on sale in India soon, with pricing starting around Rs 40 lakh (ex-showroom). Globally, the new-generation SUV comes with a range of powertrain options, including a 1.5-litre TSI petrol engine with mild hybrid technology (148bhp), a 2.0-litre TSI engine with all-wheel drive (201bhp), and a 2.0-litre TDI diesel engine with front-wheel drive (151bhp) and all-wheel drive (201bhp). 

A plug-in hybrid powertrain featuring a 1.5-litre TSI engine and an electric motor, delivering a combined 201bhp and a pure electric range exceeding 100 kilometres, is also available for the first time. Skoda has not disclosed details about the India-spec version, but it is expected to retain the same 2-litre turbo-petrol mill that produces 187bhp and 320Nm.
