Thanks to Athul Benoy for sending this information in. Heartfelt gratitude for sharing it with other enthusiasts via this Team-BHP page!

The engine specifications and other details of the India-spec Kodiaq have leaked. The spec-sheet says that the Kodiaq will be available with a 1,968cc, turbocharged diesel engine. This unit puts out 148 BHP @ 3,500-4,000 rpm and a peak torque of 340 Nm @ 1,750-3,000 rpm. While it uses the same 2.0-litre TDI unit as the Tiguan, the Kodiaq has 7 BHP more than its VW Group sibling. The torque figure is identical to the Tiguan's however peak torque is available over a slightly wider rev range.

The Skoda Kodiaq will come equipped with a 7-speed DSG transmission. The spec-sheet also reveals that the Kodiaq measures 4,697 mm in length, 1,882 mm in width, 1,676 mm in height and has a wheelbase of 2,791 mm. It is longer by 211 mm and gets a 114 mm bigger wheelbase than its VW sibling. The SUV has a maximum ground clearance of 140 mm, which is lower by 9 mm compared to the Tiguan. The 63-litre fuel tank is also smaller in capacity than the Tiguan's 71-litre fuel tank.

Boot space is 270 litres which is 345 litres less than in the Tiguan but that is because the Kodiaq has an additional third row of seats. That said, by folding the rear seats, luggage capacity can be increased to 2,005 litres (1,655 litres in the Tiguan).

The Skoda Kodiaq will be launched in India on October 4, 2017.
