Ahead of its debut in the Indian market, the engine details of the Skoda Kodiaq SUV have surfaced online. It will be offered with one four-cylinder diesel engine and automatic gearbox.

The leaked document suggests that the Kodiaq will be offered in India with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel engine. This is the same engine being offered in the Volkswagen Tiguan but here it will produce 147bhp/340Nm as compared to the former’s 141bhp/340Nm. The only gearbox on offer is a seven-speed DSG. This engine option seems logical considering that the Tiguan and the Kodiaq are underpinned by the MQB platform produced in the same factory in Aurangabad. In terms of numbers, the Kodiaq is longer than the Tiguan and measures 4.69-metres with a wheelbase of 2.71-metres.  The Tiguan is 4.4-metres long and has a wheelbase of 2.6-metres.

The Kodiaq will be an important car for the automaker as this is their first big SUV in the premium segment of the market. It is expected to be priced on par with the compact luxury SUVs and will be billed as a better feature alternative to the likes of cars from Audi, Mercedes, BMW and Volvo.
