The Skoda Kodiaq SUV’s starting price has been revised. It has come down to Rs 33 lakh from Rs 35.37 lakh (both ex-showroom), making the entry-level variant of Skoda’s flagship SUV in India affordable by Rs 2.37 lakh. Other than the Style variant, the Kodiaq is available in L&K variant as well, which is priced at Rs 36.79 lakh (same as before).
The reduced price on the base variant of the Kodiaq is effective till 30 September only as per Skoda’s official website. It remains to be seen if the lowered price would continue in the next month as well or not. It is being speculated that the Kodiaq Style variant with its reduced price tag is going to be called the ‘Corporate Edition’. However, unlike the other Corporate Edition models that Skoda launched previously, the discounted Kodiaq Style will be available for sale to all buyers, and not just existing Skoda car owners.
The Skoda Kodiaq is offered in two variants -- Style and L&K. The SUV is available in India in just the 2.0-litre diesel engine that offers 150PS of maximum power and is mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
Apart from the Skoda Kodiaq SUV, the Skoda Rapid and Superb sedan models are also available with discounts on select variants. The Skoda Rapid’s top Style petrol-manual and mid-range Ambition diesel-manual variants are now available with Rs. 1.16 lakh and Rs 1.3 lakh discount, respectively. This discount also makes the Rapid Ambition diesel cheaper than the base Rapid Active.
The Skoda Superb’s base petrol-automatic Style variant is now priced at Rs 25.99 lakh, a discount of around Rs 1.8 lakh. The Superb Style diesel’s price has been revised to Rs 28.49 lakh, down from the original tag of Rs 30.29 lakh (all prices ex-showroom).
