I just spoke to my guy at the local Skoda dealership. He says October 4 confirmed, 32-34 ex showroom Gurgaon, one model only with the 2.0 TDI and 7 Speed DSG, 4 colours.

OverDrive comapres the Kodiaq with Tiguan, pricing speculated to be lower than its sibling?

If priced well, the Kodiaq would offer extremely good value and might steal some numbers from the Fortuner, Endeavour and the Innova.

That's a complete package. Hits the sweet spots almost everywhere. Skoda has really done a great job with the Kodiaq. Hope it does well!

Very unlikely that it will priced lower than Tiguan. My guess is that the 32 mentioned will be Ex-Showroom price where the 37 for Tiguan is the on-road price for the Highline.

My guess is that it'll be priced at par with the Tiguan, maybe slightly higher. The Kodiaq looks far more plush and imposing than the Tiguan. Strange, since VW is supposed to be the premium one.

However, I won't be surprised if they decide to take the Tucson head on by undercutting the Tiguan. Remember how the Superb made the Accord and Camry look obscenely expensive in 2009?

Has the launch date been finalized?

Looking good at Kovalam!

Lots of clever touches in the big Skoda.

Love the door protector which slips in and out.

The Focus RS gets it and its neat! See it in action here:


And those head rests for the second row like in airplanes.

Now, the pricing will be key.

I have a strong feeling that the Kodiaq will change Skoda's fortunes for good, even if it is priced along side the Fortuner and Endeavor.

It is very rare for a massive SUV to fail, in India.

Car looks good. I love Skoda cars, but the pricing of this is going to be crucial. I don't think they should price it above 30 showroom.

Excellent features & brilliant visual package. I have a feeling that the first victim to fall prey for the Kodiaq is going to be its own cousin, the Tiguan.
