2022 Skoda Kodiaq Facelift Launch Pushed To January
When it comes to new releases and unveilings for the year 2021, Skoda India has its job cut out for it. With the launch of the new generation Octavia and Kushaq, the Czech automaker still has a few tricks up its sleeve. We already know that the Slavia mid-size car will debut in winter 2021, and the 2022 Skoda Kodiaq was previously slated to debut around the same time. The debut of the Kodiaq facelift has been postponed until January 2022, according to Skoda India CEO Zac Hollis. The Kodiaq makeover was meant to be on our shores by the end of the year, but it appears that plans have changed.
A new hexagonal Skoda butterfly grille and full LED matrix headlights are added to the exterior. A new set of alloy wheels is also included, with the vRS version sporting 20-inch Sagittarius alloy wheels. With a mesh effect for the air inlets and L-shaped finishing touches on the sides, the bumpers have been redesigned. The taillights are full-LED units that are crisper and thinner than the previous generation.
The inside features a 10.25-inch touchscreen that supports Android Auto and Apple Carplay. Multiway electric adjustment, memory function, massaging function, vented and heated function, as well as adjustable lumbar support are all included in the redesigned chairs. The typical Skoda two-spoke steering wheel, as seen in recent Skoda automobiles, will also be available for the 2022 Skoda Kodiaq. A virtual cockpit, panoramic sunroof, dual-zone climate control, automated parking brake, 360-degree parking camera, and Canton premium sound system are among the other goodies. The Kodiaq’s boot space is 835 liters, but it can be increased to 2,065 liters with the rear seats folded.
The 2022 Skoda Kodiaq will be available in a variety of engine and transmission combinations around the world, with outputs ranging from 150 to 245 horsepower. In India, the BS4 Kodiaq was powered by a 2.0-liter TDI engine that produced 148hp and 340Nm of torque. Since Skoda no longer offers diesel engines, we expect the BS6 Kodiaq to be powered by the turbocharged 2-litre TSI engine, which produces 190 horsepower and 320 pound-feet of torque. A 7-speed dual-clutch DSG transmission will handle transmission chores, and we expect it to come standard with 444 horsepower, just like the previous generation.
