The new Skoda Kodiaq has long been in the works and Skoda have finally launched its new SUV starting at Rs 34.99 lakh (ex-showroom).
The all-new Skoda Kodiaq now adds a dash more toughness with its revamped front and back, additional off-road capabilities and a hexagonal Skoda grille. The Kodiaq now has a redesigned bonnet, body-coloured front and rear bumpers, and new visual and functional improvements to the head and taillight clusters. The Skoda Crystalline LEDs with lit eyelashes and dynamic turn indicators have been added to the headlights. Furthermore, the huge SUV's aerodynamics are improved with a new rear spoiler design.
