There is a somewhat valid reason to omit those. International forums were flooded with those breaking off within months. If someone closed the door too hard, they wouldn't close on time and break.

Also it snagging against clothes/dresses.
Seems like only the Indian Kodiaq doesn’t get them? Was seeing a UK video of the Kodiaq Sportline and it had the door edge protectors (although video mentions it’s part of the ‘Family Pack’)!

I guess its same with all dealers, irrespective of the brand.
During my recent purchase of i20, the wait period was 6 weeks. The dealer did not ask me to pay full amount / invoicing until the vehicle was alloted and was transported to the dealer, which was 5 days before delivery. However they were clear that the final price will be at the time of invoicing, so if Hyundai had increased the price before invoicing I would have had to pay the new price.
In this case if your friend is getting protected from 4% hike if he makes the full payment now, I guess nothing wrong in that. Else he is actually at a risk of any price increase.

What you are saying is right for normal bookings..
But this was a launch day booking and if they change the price even for launch day booking, this price will have no significance .
Skoda is providing this price for the 1st lot of cars and my friend should definitely be eligible for that as its a launch day booking

Looks like in spite of good efforts by Mr. Zac Hollis Skoda dealers have not shown any sign of improvement.

How can a dealer demand for full payment more than a month in advance? This would mean the EMI will start even before vehicle is delivered.

The vehicle was already booked on the launch date and the price applicable shall be the price prevailing at the time of booking and not at the time of delivery. As it was launch day offer. Similar to XUV 007 bookings of launch day. Hence no such increase should be applicable. Dealer is clearly trying to arm twist customer to finance their working capital at 0% interest.

Can anyone confirm what would be the right time to release full payment ?
according to me once the vehicle is allotted/ dispatched from plant (ideally ready for delivery within next 10days) one can make full payment.

Can the dealer apply the new increased price if not paid full amount by 26th Jan?
Seems like there is no right and wrong way these days for the car in demand. Say your friend is going for Rs30lacs loan for 5 years with the 7.5% rate of interest, EMI will be Rs60k per month. If he is allocated / delivered the car in April, thats Rs 1.8lacs of EMI, Rs50k of booking amount, and 14 lacs of down payment (if L&K) = Rs16.3lacs three months before the actual allocation of the car. Real question is, is you friend ready to pay this to get the price protection of may be 2 lacs?

PS: This is in case of 3months of wait. It changes the dynamic is wait is reduced or increased

Thanks for sharing. I really liked how the presenter is positioning the car as a family car for those who want a 7 seater, and is dismissive of power and ride quality, mentioning that is good for this class of vehicles. Here Skoda is positioning it as a true performance and luxurious SUV.

Sorry for the rant, but just another day me comparing what 45L (US$60K) can buy outside India

If your friend booked the Kodiaq on launch day he should get the benefit of the launch price, from what I am told the price change if ay is for bookings made after 11th Jan '21.

Ask your friend to speak with Skoda and see what they have to say on this.

Cheers,
Sid

Yes you are very much right. The dealer is just trying some arm twisting tactics , probably to solve their cash crunch.
Only fear is later dealer should not claim later that; we had offered you vehicle from 1st lot and you failed to pay. So now you will get vehicle as per new price.

Found another video a few days back, for the Sportline variant in India. The video is in Tamil I believe. It gives a few views of the virtual cockpit, love the themes for the Sportline. That blue background and red dials gives me Alpina vibes. Theres one more video but that only demos the park assist feature in the Sportline. Many dealers are yet to receive Sportline demo cars. My SA tells me 10th Feb is when they'll receive one of the Sportline on order.

Wondering if the deliveries have actually started for the Kodiaq? If not, when are they expected to start?

I have been given a March date as well by my SA. Hopefully that is the case. Had booked on the 12th January (just for reference).

Saw one Kodiaq yesterday evening in White shade. Must say it's an impressive vehicle... Balanced stance & quite handsome looking IMO. But VAG should bring in something other than just petrol engines - hybrids & or CNG (with Euro Passat like arrangement). As far as I know the 2l turbo petrol is compatible with CNG as it's broken Natural Gas powered land speed record (200 kmph) on an Octavia.

India is a different ball game & minus the diesel they need to play maximum bets.

While I agree on the Diesel and Hybrids, really doubt anyone spending 50 lakhs will go for a CNG, no matter how good it is. Even CNG will be hard to sell beyond 15 lakhs segment in India.

Further to my query, I was scanning again through the brochure, and there it is, page 65, the Sportline gets a black suede roof liner!
