The Skoda Kodiaq Scout is scheduled for India launch on September 30, a few days away. This is a more off-road focused variant of the Kodiaq and will have a few changes to distinguish it from the regular Kodiaq. 

The styling of the Kodiaq Scout will include matte black plastic cladding on the underside and lower half of the bumpers and silver inserts around these areas. There will also be matte black cladding on the sides of the car, along the wheel arches and the bottom of the doors. 

New 19-inch ‘anthracite’ alloy wheels will indicate that it is different, and there will be ‘Scout’ badging as well. Higher up on the body, the mirrors will be silver and there will be roof rails.

The Skoda Kodiaq Scout interior will get many of the same features as the top-spec L&K variant. This includes the 9.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system, wood inserts, Alcantara upholstery, and the LCD instrument cluster that replaces the traditional dials for a color screen. There will be Scout logos in the interior as well, to remind the occupants that the Kodiaq they’re in is special.

The driveline will be the same 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo-diesel that generates 150bhp and 340Nm. It is paired with a 7 speed DSG automatic gearbox. Globally, this powertrain is mated to an all-wheel-drive system as standard and gets an ‘off-road’ mode as well – but it remains to be seen if the Indian version will include the mechanical changes as well, or just go for a cosmetic upgrade. 

The Kodiaq Scout is likely to be priced as the range-topping variant when launched, even if it is merely a cosmetic upgrade. It will compete with the likes of the Volkswagen Tiguan and Honda CR-V. If it gets the mechanical upgrade with the all-wheel-drive and off-road mode, it will become a soft-roading rival to the Ford Endeavour and Toyota Fortuner as well.
