Skoda Launches Kodiaq Scout – New Variant for Flagship SUV
Skoda launched a new variant of its flagship SUV, the Kodiaq Scout, at Rs. 33.99Lakhs. The launch concluded on September 30 and featured some different design elements from the regular Kodiaq. The Scout variant sits right in the middle of base variant and the top-spec Laurin &Klement.
Skoda Kodiaq Scout comes with a black plastic cladding with silver metallic inserts on the lower portion of the front and rear bumpers, Scout badges on the front fenders and tailgates, ORVM covers, dual-tone 18-inch alloy wheels, and lower bumpers with silver finishing.
On the inside, Skoda has provided some changes making it different from the rest of the trims. Seats in Kodiaq Scout have Alcantara leather finishing with doors and dashboard featuring wooden inserts with Scout inscriptions. It also sports a 9.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto Compatibility, a 12-way adjustable driver’s seat, hands-free parking system, ambient lighting, three-zone climate control, and a panoramic sunroof. It comes with nine airbags and a tyre pressure monitoring system on the safety sides. The boot of the KodiaqScout provides 270litres worth of space, which can be expanded up to 2,008 litres with the second and third-row folded. Moreover, Skoda Kodiaq Scout also gets an off-ride mode that allows this humongous monster to perform extremely well in bumpy terrains.
Skoda Kodiaq Scout features a 2.0-liter turbo-diesel engine that powers the entire Kodiaq range producing 150hp and 340Nm of torque. The power is distributed to all four wheels through a 7-speed DSG automatic gearbox. With such a muscular design and monstrous power, Skoda Kodiaq Scout really is an SUV worth every penny. It directly rivals the Honda CR-V and Volkswagen Tiguan, increasing competition in the SUV segment.
