Volkswagen's Aurangabad plant begins production of the facelifted Skoda Kodiaq
The VW Group's Aurangabad plant has begun production of the revised Skoda Kodiaq ahead of its launch in January 2022.
The new Kodiaq, which is based on the internationally recognised MQB platform, has a few cosmetic tweaks on the outside. A reworked front grille, new headlights and a new front bumper are among the changes. It also receives some small changes on the back.
Gurpratap Boparai, Managing Director Skoda Auto Volkswagen India Private Limited, said, "The New Kodiaq is part of the overall SUV offensive of the Group in India. With the start of production at our world-class facility in Aurangabad, we add yet another product that provides the Indian customer with the best of technology, safety and comfort. The new Kodiaq will appeal to the ever-growing tribe of Indian customers looking for a large, luxurious SUV, suited for city and weekend drives. We are confident that the New Kodiaq will set benchmarks in the premium luxury segment and carry forward the momentum of our growth strategy in India".
The 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine seen in the Skoda Octavia and Skoda Superb is rumoured to be used in the Skoda Kodiaq facelift. This engine develops 189PS and is mated to a 7-speed DSG automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.
Customers interested in the new Skoda Kodiaq can register their information at a local dealership or on the Skoda Auto India brand website.
Adding to the announcement Zac Hollis, Brand Director, Skoda Auto India, said that "The new Kodiaq is the second SUV to be introduced in India this year by Skoda. We believe that the offerings of the new Kodiaq will lead connoisseurs of design and aesthetics to appreciate the SUV even more. Over the years, the resounding success of the Kodiaq has only fuelled augmentations in line with our ethos that power should be beautiful. The Kodiaq further drives home our vision to provide our customers in India a complete product portfolio".
