Skoda can educate different automakers a thing or two about naming autos. In the event that you thought the name “Yeti” wasn’t sufficiently cool for a SUV, the Czech automaker Skoda has initiated its extensive SUV as the ‘Kodiaq’. The public statement expresses that the name is gotten from the Kodiak bear that lives off the south shoreline of Alaska. The option spelling is a tribute to the Alutiiqs, that are locals of the Kodiak island. We had reported the likelihood of Skoda receiving this name for the SUV, and are happy to be legitimized. The SUV and the bear share a great deal in like manner, say Skoda. Regular attributes as per the automaker are “Size, quality and summon of nature”.
Skoda has affirmed a couple of bits of data about the Kodiaq. First off, it will be 4.7 meters in length. To place that into point of view, it is only 200mm shorter than the Ford Endeavor. The automaker has likewise affirmed that it will be a seven-seater and get 4×4 also. On the mechanical front, we anticipate that it will include the same 2.0-liter TDi engine that powers the Octavia, Superb and the Yeti.
It will show up in the not so distant future, trailed by a worldwide dispatch in 2017. Skoda could consider the Kodiaq for the India too. In the event that it does, the huge Czech is in for a fight with the Ford Endeavor and the up and coming new Toyota Fortuner.
