There are rumours of MY 2023 having some feature updates (from the SA who sold me my Rapid and dad's Superb, he's been in Skoda for 7 years so can't be wrong). Just wait till some news eventually leaks out.
Meanwhile I'll keep my eyes and ears open via the Skoda groups if there's any updates !
Happy car hunting .

The rest of the doors unlock with an audible though different click.

When I do all the above actions consciously, it doesn't work many a times & end up locking the doors again but it works when done in a single fluid action.
If you tap the indentation on the outside of the handle at any point, it will lock all doors. To unlock all doors in the setting that you have chosen (Driver's door only), just tap the inside of the handle with 4 fingers twice in quick succession while making sure you do not touch the outside indentation.

In fact I watched a video on YouTube which seemed it was from Russia, donít want to share the link here as I am not sure of its legitimacy. The video had a white Kodiaq seemed like an L&K but the front seats were like the ones in the Sportline. So I am leaning towards it being a Chinese model. It had a three spoke steering, touch AC controls like the ones in the Tiguan, large standing screen from the Enyaq, different design for the dashboard with ambient lighting strip running across tits length and best of all, it had brown interiors which were a shade darker than the Superbís Cognac interior! But I really have my doubts, as I havenít seen these changes applied in international sites as well.

Yeah it could be the newgen Kodiaq you saw in the video. The current gen in the international markets is still well equipped but the problem is that they don't make those specs available for the India market. In my opinion the atleast L&K model for its 40L Ex Showroom should offer the following. ( How I wish Skoda India takes note for the MY 23 model as I have an order and awaiting my delivery in 1 or 2 months and I don't mind waiting for some more time if these are offered)

1. 9.2 inch Columbus system instead of the current 8 inch system. Its the perfect size in my opinion as the 8 inch system looks a bit dwarfed.
2. Travel assist - Front assist, ACC, Lane Keep asset and blind spot assist.
3. Option to choose the three spoke steering wheel instead of the two spoke unit ( not a big fan of that one)
4. Ergo seats as an option ( would be segment first if offered)

Offer the above, price the L&K at 42L Ex-showroom, it would still be the bang for the buck!

But this is where the 'price to value' is an issue for them as taxation simply doest allow them to go beyond given the CKD nature.

On the whole, I am curious to know what the updates could be. MY SA told me MY23 remains the same when I checked with him last year after my order. Honestly I will be happy if they don't strip down any more features in the name of chip shortage.

FINALLY got the call today that the car has been shipped from the factory. Irritating the SE daily has paid off I guess. Hope I dont have to wait for a longer period now that he's sent the profoma invoice. Cant wait!!!

Re: 2022 Skoda Kodiaq Facelift Review | 2.0L Petrol DSG

Saw this tread of a collision between a Skoda Kodiaq and a Fortuner and the Kodiaq (1st gen diesel) is up in flames. If anyone gets to know more on this, any more news or reasons that the Kodiaq ended getting roasted. Please do share. What could be the reasons?

Also, please capitalize as required (car's make / model).

Fortuner is a Diesel.

Skoda Kodiaq Facelifted model is a Petrol.

Diesel even if spilled wont catch fire whereas even a small amount of petrol is enough to catch fire.

They say in the article its a diesel Kodiaq but is indeed the facelift model with the TSI engine. You can tell from the tail lights.

Re: 2022 Skoda Kodiaq Facelift Review | 2.0L Petrol DSG

2 months repair update:

10 February marks the completion of 2 months period of car workshop arrival.
Still waiting for the parts to arrive - again thanking to poor inventory management of Skoda. Though car is still left 30% more to be repaired.

Now it seems like eternity for parts arrival.

One can go to Czech Republic, take their parts & come back much before the Skoda's official process.

Whenever asked about the progress, its communicated - Sir waiting for parts arrival.

God save CKD CBU users.

Re: 2022 Skoda Kodiaq Facelift Review | 2.0L Petrol DSG

Booking Update:

My SA from Chennai Skoda called me that a MY23 vehicle has apparently come in and ready for delivery. I double checked if the CKD assembly is 23 and he confirmed it is 23 manufactured. I guess its a 22 CKD kit assembled in 23 ( hence called MY23) ?
He had called me a couple of months back too for a Black L&K which he said was MY22 that will be registered in 23.

Since we had planned to take it in Mar( allowing year end depreciation benefits) and are in no rush , I passed, but I asked him to verify if there are any features changes. He said except for the Alloy Wheel change ( actually degraded compared to previous L&K), there are no changes to the spec. I have asked for a spec sheet and awaiting the same.

Any member has any clue if there is going to be any potential feature revisions for the CKDs that are assembled in the days/ weeks to come? I suppose if at all MY23 gets feature revisions, the kits need to be MY23 manufactured too so they come with necessary hardware changes? I do remember Zac's statement that the same spec will run right through 23 year but I don't want to jump in sooner only to see some updates being rolled out in the subsequent kits. I have waited long enough already and don't mind waiting another month or two to rule out this speculation.

Folks in Chennai who would like to take delivery of a Lava Blue L&K immediately, do reach out to Gurudev Skoda ( Teynampet). I can DM the SA number if anyone needs it.

Re: 2022 Skoda Kodiaq Facelift Review | 2.0L Petrol DSG

Request Kodiaq owners to comment about AC performance in the vehicle. I have made a booking and waiting for the delivery. In the meanwhile, I would like to understand if there are any issues with air conditioning overall, and specifically last row as there are no AC vents.

Not much will be changed. As drivetrain continues as it is for 2023. Though if Superb is not coming anymore with the same drivetrain, can't say anything for Kodiaq. Most probably it will have hybrid technology incorporated with price going north. I don't think older kits will be much of the issue.

It's fine. Nothing to down upon.

Only condition which might make you & rear passengers feel warm is bright sunny day - with roof acting as convection heater. Have to set at 20 degrees or lower.

After sunset - it will give you chills.
