    CarWale's Take on Skoda Kodiaq

    • Good Things
      • Solid build
      • Practical and capacious cabin
      • Ride and handling balance
    • Could be Better
      • Cramped third-row seating
      • You could pay a bit more and get premium brands

    Skoda Kodiaq Verdict

    Other than the lack of a diesel option and new-age active safety features, there is very little to fault on the 2022 Kodiaq. It’s well put together, comes with a lot of clever features and the usual array of feel-good premium kit. The cabin is spacious and legitimately versatile, too.

    Skoda Kodiaq Review

    Skoda has updated the Kodiaq with a change of heart.

    Engine and Performance

    Engine Shot

    The Kodiaq now gets the same 2-litre TSI turbocharged engine that we have earlier sampled in the new VW Tiguan and the Octavia. Here it makes 187bhp and 320Nm and is paired to a seven-speed DSG automatic transmission. The power is sent to all four wheels through an electronically controlled AWD system. For the Kodiaq, the focus is on drivability and efficiency keeping in mind the model’s extra weight. Press the steering column mounted starter button and you will hardly notice any noise or vibrations through the cabin – it’s refined right from the word go

    Left Front Three Quarter

    Now we have sampled this 2-litre TSI engine is so many VW Group cars lately, so naturally we had some expectations with regards to the refinement and performance. We are happy to report that the Kodiaq didn’t disappoint for the most part. Power delivery remains smooth and extremely linear and it’s quite predictable as well. Although there is a bit of turbo lag under 2,000revs and you can really feel it in Eco mode wherein the throttle response is a bit lazy, this engine overall is commendably responsive and quiet. It impresses under most conditions and allows the Kodiaq to mask its weight and get up to speed effortlessly. Thanks to the strong mid-range, this motor never feels strained when you are going for it. Unlike the diesel Kodiaq which offered just about enough punch on the highway, there’s always power in reserve so overtaking is effortless. The 2022 Kodiaq can handle everyday commutes just as well as it can cover interstate runs, well as long as you can digest the relatively low fuel efficiency.   

    Left Rear Three Quarter

    The Kodiaq’s strong performance is, in no small part, to the seven-speed dual-clutch automatic which is quick and responsive when you are in a hurry and you need to reel in that gap in traffic. At slow speeds there is less hesitancy in stop/start traffic and the downshifts are better masked, too, compared to earlier versions of the DSG. On part throttle, it upshifts early at the meat of the torque band to make quick progress. This gearbox really allows the Kodiaq to stretch its legs out on the highway, thanks to the tall sixth and seventh ratios. You get as many as six driving modes as part of the new Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC) system. Each mode alters the throttle response and gearshifts with dedicated off-road-focused modes to handle mild off-road situations.   

    Ride and Handling

    Right Front Three Quarter

    Perhaps the biggest highlight of the 2022 Kodiaq is the fact that it comes with the VW Group’s Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC) system which not only alters the engine/gearbox and steering response as per the drive mode, but also the shocks. The shocks, in fact, are gas-liquid filled and are paired to a standalone ECU that constantly monitors road surfaces and alters damping forces on each shock. As a result, the new Kodiaq rides noticeably flatter across changing road conditions especially at medium to high speeds compared to the old car. Even over broken patches and rutted surfaces, the ride remains unfazed and comfortable.

    Left Side View

    In Sport mode, the Kodiaq behaves noticeably different as the steering gets heavier and the throttle response becomes crisper. Through corners it feels stable and predictable – the steering is light and weighs up nicely as you put on some lock, with sufficient feel on centre. Now the Kodiaq isn’t as keen to turn in or change directions like some of the German crossovers but then it doesn’t wallow like a ladder frame SUV either. All told, its body control is more car-like and the noise suppression is good, too. 

    Interior Space and Quality

    Dashboard

    The cabin design and layout is the same for the 2022 car except for a couple of changes. Firstly, there’s the new two-spoke steering that all flagship Skodas now come with. Secondly, the materials for the dash and the door pads have been refreshed as part of the update. Otherwise, the cabin design remains unchanged and like in the Superb and the new Octavia, you get a lot of chrome highlights and shiny black surfaces while the generous center console and a large touchscreen infotainment system along with the all-digital instrument cluster are visual draws. What’s unique to the Kodiaq though are the vertical elements such as the four large air vents. The gear lever, too, is different and is nice and chunky to hold. It’s not all perfect though, as despite the flagship nature of the Kodiaq, it isn’t as special as it should be when it comes to common switchgear. The cabin may seem wide at first but the ergonomics are spot-on, with plenty of seat and steering wheel adjustment. The control stalks behind the wheel and the climate control switches are within easy reach, as well. The Kodiaq scores high when it comes to storage options, with twin glove boxes, a large storage bin under the front armrest and equally practical door pockets.

    Front Row Seats

    The front seats are nice and big and they let you sink in comfortably. Thanks to their generous size, there’s good thigh support on offer. Rear seat passengers unarguably have the best deal, with excellent legroom and shoulder room. There is enough room for an adult to stretch their feet out and sink into the seat. However, the cushioning is a bit firm and the seatback isn’t as deeply sculpted as the front. 

    Second Row Seats

    Surprisingly, the middle bench doesn’t tumble forward which means getting into the third row is bit of a squeeze. As for the space in here, it’s acceptable only for kids, if we are honest. The combination of a high floor and low seat means you end up sitting in a cramped manner with your knees locked in.

    Bootspace

    Even with all the seats up, the Kodiaq’s 270-litre boot is usable. With the third row folded flat, it’s a lot more capacious at 630-litres but it’s when you put the second row down as well, that you realise how big and practical the Kodiaq’s 2,005-litre storage is. What’s more, the loading lip on the boot is at a good height, and the tailgate itself is electrically powered, making the whole deal all the more convenient.

    Features and Equipment

    Infotainment System

    The eight-inch display for the infotainment system might seem small in today’s age but its packing a lot of features. There’s Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Skoda’s SmartLink connectivity with inbuilt navigation and visuals for the 360-degree camera. The system is crisp, clean and is paired to a 12-speaker high-end sound system which sounds great. The Kodiaq also gets nine airbags, ABS, ESP, traction control, panoramic sunroof, electric tailgate, parking sensors all around, ambient lighting and electric front seats. 

    Sunroof/Moonroof

    All of that is standard affair in this class, but what’s unique in here are some of the clever features including drowsiness alert, a three-zone climate control and hands free parking. As part of Skoda’s Simply Clever arrangement, you also get an umbrella in the driver side door, a ticket holder and thick floor mats. Unfortunately, Skoda isn’t offering what is perhaps the cleverest feature anymore which used to be those pop-out plastic strips that veer out to protect the door edges when you open them. The 2022 model also misses out on active safety tech like ADAS and at a much more rudimentary level, conventional USB ports.   

    Conclusion

    Front View

    Other than the lack of a diesel option and new-age active safety features, there is very little to fault on the 2022 Kodiaq. It’s well put together, comes with a lot of clever features and the usual array of feel-good premium kit. The cabin is spacious and legitimately versatile, too – one can really use the Kodiaq to haul heavy stuff or ferry a large family. Speaking of large, if your priorities are road presence and burly looks then the Kodiaq probably isn’t the car for you. It will get dwarfed by the likes of the MG Gloster and the Toyota Fortuner, but if you are looking for a solid, all round SUV, the Kodiaq makes for a mighty impressive choice, especially at a starting price of Rs 34.99 lakh (ex-showroom). 

    Rear View

    The L&K version that you see here is also priced quite reasonably at Rs 37.49 lakh and when you compare it to premium soft roaders like the BMW X1, the Mercedes GLA and the Volvo XC40, it comes across as great value given its superior size and versatility.

    • Much Much better than Fortuner
      My buying experience was really great since I knew the dealers in the showroom. I even got a nice discount too. The engine feels great and peppy and does not feel underpowered at all. The looks are such that they will never get old and will age like fine wine. The facelift has been executed really well. The only downside to this car is its cramped 3rd row but this hasn't been an issue for me since we don t carry more than 4 people ever(This is also a problem with its main rival Fortuner) . Even with all the seats up, we get a nice boot space. Overall, I would 100% recommend this car to others over the Fortuner since here we get more features for the price and also the solid Skoda build quality. The fuel economy is also decent, the indicator was showing 14 km/l at the time of writing the review. I owned a Rapid before so after sales service is also great with Skoda. Overall, this is the value for money SUV which is a union of Fortuner's capability and Luxurious high end cars feel.

    • This car is better for family usage
      This car is not much as expected because it price is near bmw x1 and in other terms like feature mileage and luxuriousness it is quite far from x1 but who strictly have budget of 43 lakhs then it is better to buy this car because in 43 lakhs it is the only one which stand in competition because Toyota, MG, Ford lags in luxuriousness. So, it is better than Gloster, Endeavour, Fortunes but less than x1 and gla and another cons that it has no diesel engine for users.
