You read it first on MotorBeam. The Skoda Kodiaq has been misspelled as Kodaiq in a newspaper advertisement. An avid MotorBeam reader from Bengaluru, Vanita Parwani, spotted the mistake in the advertisement and clicked a picture of the same. The advertisement, reportedly, had appeared in the December 22nd edition of The Hindu. It still isn’t clear whether the newspaper agency is at fault or the Czech automaker itself.

The Skoda Kodiaq was launched earlier this year at a sticker price of Rs. 34.49 lakhs (ex-showroom). Available only in a sole variant, the 7-seater SUV (first ever from Skoda) comes powered by a 2.0-litre diesel motor producing 150 HP of power and 340 Nm of torque. The oil-burner unit comes mated to a 7-speed DSG automatic gearbox only. Rivalling the segment heavyweights like the Toyota Fortuner and Ford Endeavour, the Kodiaq is flooded with features.

You get full LED lighting system, electrically adjustable and foldable mirrors with heating function, virtual pedal, 18-inch alloy wheels, ambient lighting, beige leather upholstery, keyless entry, engine start/stop button, 12-way electrically driver’s (with memory function) and passenger seat, an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, panoramic sunroof and a 3-zone climate control system.

Based on the MQB platform, the SUV has sold 640 units (till November 2017) in just two months of its launch in India whereas it’s platform partner, the Volkswagen Tiguan has managed to sell only 748 units since its launch in May, earlier this year.
