Skoda India is launching a more rugged-looking version of the flagship Kodiaq SUV today, called the Kodiaq Scout. The SUV will come with a few tweaks to highlight its off-road credentials, apart from marginally higher ground clearance and improved approach/departure angles. Mechanically, the Kodiaq Scout remains unchanged, being powered by a 2-litre diesel engine producing 150PS and 340Nm torque. We'll be bringing you all the updates on the Kodiaq Scout, right from its launch.

    Launched! The Kodiaq Scout is priced at Rs 33.99 lakh, ex-showroom, fitting in between the Style (at Rs 32.99 lakh) and L&K variant (at Rs 36.8 lakh)

    Unique to the Kodiaq Scout will be the off-road driving mode, which can be activated under speeds of 30 kmph, tweaking the engine dynamics and electronic driver aids to better suit rough terrain.

    The Scout will be powered by the same EA288 2-litre diesel engine that does duty in other versions of the Kodiaq, outputting 150PS and 340Nm torque. It's mated to a 7-speed DSG, and has all-wheel drive capabilities

    Features could include some of the headline features seen on the top-of-line Laurin & Klement model, like the all-digital driver's display and 360-deg parking camera. This is addition to the 8-inch touchscreen infotainment, ambient lighting, leather upholstery, panoramic sunroof and more.

    The Scout also benefits from the extra underbody protection afforded by the rough road package, with protection extending over the engine and drivetrain.

    Like we said, the Scout also has a marginal increase in ground clearance. At 194mm, it's 6mm higher than the standard versions of the Kodiaq.

  • Sep 30, 02:05 PM (IST)

    Subtle visual differences to the Scout come in the way of the silver bumper protectors on both front and rear bumpers, new alloy wheels and silver coloured ORVMs, apart from the Scout badge on the front fenders.
