It also features Skoda’s Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC) system, which adjusts the firmness of the suspension system based on the drive mode for utmost comfort & ease of driving.
Underneath the hood, there’s the 2.0-lite, 4-cylinder, turbocharged petrol engine (190PS/320Nm), paired with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission (DCT) and an All-Wheel-Drivetrain (AWD).
Being a monocoque SUV, the Kodiaq doesn’t have any true challenger in its segment. However, the petrol version of the body-on-frame Toyota Fortuner SUV could be seen as its close challenger.
