Online booking of Skoda Kodiaq SUV in India resumed on Wednesday after a technical glitch on Tuesday. Offline bookings of the 2023 model SUV in select colors and variants continued by some dealers. Although there's no official announcement, it looks like Skoda is making way for the new model by stopping bookings for the current one. The new Kodiaq, which was introduced globally last year, has a sharper design, a more luxurious interior, and better features. It is expected to launch in India soon, with prices starting at around Rs 40 lakh (ex-showroom).

The updated Skoda Kodiaq, which debuted globally last October, is expected to hit the Indian market later this year. This new version features Skoda's Modern Solid design language, introduced in the 2022 Vision 7S concept. Key enhancements include squared-off wheel arches, a larger grille with an illuminated strip, and a quad-headlight setup with LED Matrix headlights that offer 15% more light. The new Kodiaq also boasts new bumpers, aerodynamic wing mirrors, and redesigned wheels. Built on the MQB-EVO platform, the SUV is now 61mm longer, offering a more spacious and refined driving experience.

It also boasts a 12-speaker sound system, cruise control, 10-color ambient lighting, 3-zone climate control, and a panoramic sunroof. For safety, the Kodiaq includes a 360-degree camera, hill hold and descent control, nine airbags, electronic stability control (ESC), and a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS).
