Q. I am confused between two cars Skoda Kodiaq or BMW X1 or should I wait for Skoda Karoq. I am a civil contractor and My current car is Skoda Yeti and my daily traveling is approx 100 to 150 km on highways and village roads. In our areas both road conditions is not good and I have self drive my car and run alone. So Please suggest me which will be the best car for me.
  • Firstly, the Skoda Karoq is set to be launched in India by 2020 with an estimated price of above Rs 20 lakh mark. The car is likely to get 1.5-litre TSI EVO turbocharged petrol engine and a 2.0-litre TDI diesel engine. Click here for more information on Karoq. As for the BMW X1 and Skoda Kodiaq, both cars offer a powerful diesel engine. The 2.0-litre TDi engine generates 150PS of power and 340Nm of torque for the Kodiaq, whereas, the X1 can be had with a 2.0-litre twin-turbo diesel engine that develops 192.6PS/400Nm. As stated, a better companion for harsh road conditions would be the Skoda Kodiaq with its 188 mm of unladen ground clearance.

Q. Hello, I am stuck in between Kodiaq & Fortuner (2.8 4WD AT). I know I will be shelling out a couple of lacs more for Kodiaq. I need your expert advice to choose between the two of them. I already have a Brio for in-city driving and I have had the first generation Octavia for 6-7 years. The car I need now is for out of city travel with my family (two kids). Also, should I wait for the Honda CRV or is that a 'no comparison'?? Thanks for expert inputs.
  • Depends what you want from your car. Go with Fortuner If u want any of the below: (a) thinking of resale value @ time of buying a new car (b) spares and repairs availability (c) known brand Go with S Kodiaq If u want (a) more value for money, including fuel efficiency (b) better interiors and pleasure of driving (c) better features including memory seats, electronic hand breaks, auto headlamps / wipers / tyre pressure checks etc (d) Wow factor on exterior and interior of the car. If u can afford the extra EMI, live it with Skoda - its a trouble free brand.
  • Both Skoda kodiaq and Toyota Fortuner are capable SUVs but given a choice between the two, we suggest you go for Toyota Fortuner for its full-fledged road presence, Toyota brand, and more genuine sale and service network. Toyota Fortuner is also quite popular in the Indian market so there won't be any issue with spares too. CR-V, like Kodiaq, won't be able to hold against the rugged demeanour of Fortuner as this Honda looks and feels like a soft off-roader.
  • Any day my personal preference would be for Toyota over any other manufacturer. Kodiaq is no comparison over Fortuner especially on Indian roads. Toyota is now an established brand so no shortage of spare parts across the country.

Skoda Kodiaq Expert Reviews

The Kodiaq is already an SUV that delivers a great balance of features, practicality and luxury. So what does the Scout bring to the table that the Style & L&K didn't already?

October 18, 2019  By Tushar Kamath

The Kodiaq RS has racked up quite a lot of feathers in its cap. It's the first Skoda SUV to wear the vRS badge and can clock 100kmph in 7 seconds. Is it as impressive in person as the numbers suggest?

June 6, 2019  By Team ZigWheels

Does the new Laurin & Klement variant make the Skoda Kodiaq a worthy alternative to similarly priced SUVs with more influential badges?
