why is the skoda kodiaq really underrated

Skoda is currently focusing on ‘Project 2.0’ for the Indian market. It has launched Slavia and Kushaq. But with the RDE norms, Skoda has also had to discontinue its shining stars in the form of Super and Octavia. Now the only premium option in Skoda’s lineup is the Kodiaq. Still, it does not get the recognition it deserves in the Indian market. In today’s article, let’s talk about the Skoda Kodiaq 2023.

The Skoda Kodiaq has a sleek and modern design that is sure to appeal to Indian buyers. The car has a bold and muscular appearance that gives it a strong presence on the road. It is not say like Fortuner, but it offers a great road presence. Additionally, it comes with several stylish alloy wheel options and LED headlights that add to its overall aesthetic appeal.


The Skoda Kodiaq has a powerful 2.0 TSI engine that delivers 187bhp of output and 320Nm of torque. It also has a 7-speed DSG transmission, an all-wheel-drive system and a dynamic chassis control with drive mode. These features make the Kodiaq a capable and versatile performer on any road condition.

Despite these impressive features and benefits, the Skoda Kodiaq is underrated in India because of some factors like low brand awareness, limited dealership network, high maintenance cost and perception of poor after-sales service. However, Skoda is trying to address this issue with its India 2.0 strategy. The Skoda Kodiaq is a car that can cater to the needs and preferences of different types of buyers who are looking for power, beauty, comfort and technology in one package.
