Width- 1.882m
Height- 1.665m
Wheelbase- 2.791m
Ground clearance- 140mm
Weight- 1,793kg 

Exterior
The way Skoda have carved this SUV is literally appreciating and Kodiaq is that share of their portfolio which mostly show them green. 

Face 
There is not much cosmetic changes it looks pretty much similar as earlier but still fresh, won't feel out dated. The tiger grille is there standing boldly with too much of chrome and attached to the headlamps which are slim than before I believe. DRLs are slick giving sharp character to the car, fog lamps are just below the lamps and they are also LED and Kodiaq also get one of the most coolest features which is not in the trend now the headlamp washers. 
Down to the face black, vents are there closely associated with the sharp bumper that increases the sporty look of the Kodiaq. New Skoda logo is there on the hood with two line as per Skoda's taste. 

Side profile
One thing which is I loved after seeing Kodiaq is that the roof line is slightly floating down thus to me it look lengthier than its actual length (4.6m) however its length is more than enough. Alloys design is just mind blowing and the size is also good but 19 inchers could have been better. Ground clearance is not that great, when it is a case of full size SUV 140mm might tickle you over bad roads. Windows are surrounded by thin chrome line, windows are big enough to draw plenty of light and make cabin more lively. Sporty lines are running across the side of the car which are enhancing the sporty appeal of vehicle. Functional roof rails are there to carry more luggage of yours. 

Rear end 
Really like the tail light design, which is enhancing the back look of the car. Split tail light setup is there with big Skoda badging at the center of boot gate. Rear wiper, washer and defogger all the friends of an SUV are present here along with roof mounted spoiler. The diffusion is black with sliver kind of thin line running over it and also highlighting the dual exhaust system. 
It get massive panaromic sunroof with small shark fin antenna. 

Interior
Sophisticated cabin with a sense of premium quality and maturity of decoration just adding posh vibes in the cabin. 

Last row 
The last row is like always good for small kids absolutely not for adults. Quarter glasses are pretty big thus it allows more light and air feel which keep the atmosphere over here light and claustrophobic free. 

Second row
There is only 7 seater option which means captain seats are not there, the party trick of Kodiaq is that nap package, it's a foldable extension of headrest which can be used to keep you head at place while you are sleeping at the back. 
Skoda is offering you 3 zone automatic climate control AC, rear AC vents are there, arm rest with cup holder and three adjustable headrests. Over here child seat mount is present and 40:20:40 split allow you to make a bed by declining last row simultaneously. Manual sun blinds are also present for second row. 

Front seats 
At front amenities increases, here you get two different climate zones, 12 way electrically adjustable seats with lumbar support for driver seat. Get center arm rest with some space and the arm rest is slidable back and forth.

Dashboard 
The dual tone effect is literally giving awesome feel. Seriously speaking, I personally don't love the dash as much as I love the car, it is not looking fresh to me. Glossy finishing giving it amazing styling. At the middle of the dash the infotainment system is embedded with physical controls on both the sides. The screen is filled with features whereas the graphics and animation everything is showing the price point of the car and justifying it as well. 

Coming down from infotainment there is physical AC controls. Below that some space, wireless charging and USB ports are present. Gear lever or you can say drive selector which is  wrapped in  leather. Get Electronic parking brake, the glossy black finish on the center console giving amazing feel. 
It get two spoke multi function steering wheel which is my fav, many people are saying that the two spoke is looking incomplete but I don't think so. The steering get all the usual functions but cruise controls are not on steering it get a separate knob for it. 
Fully digital instrument cluster is there showing bunch of things about the vehicle in a very intersting way, you can explore the cluster but using a button embedded in the steering. 

Overall, the car is fabulous, looks, cabin, power everything is amazing but the absence of diesel engine will always feel like something is missing and dashboard design could have been better and ventilation function is also missing. 
2022 Skoda Kodiaq.......

Which one you should buy, the Kawasaki Ninja 400 or the Aprilia RS 457? | HighRPM

Recently, in December 2023, Aprilia launched its all-new Aprilia RS 457 , the first made-in-India Italian bike. The Aprilia is a brand which is known for its powerful, big, and track-centric machines. This RS 457 has less power than its other sibling but can shake the segment with its amazing power-to-weight ratio and Aprilia's fit finish. This Aprilia has some rivals in the market but in my opinion, the most strong one is from a family of monsters like Aprilia RS 457. This rival has been present in the industry for years and has won many hearts too, I'm talking about the Kawasaki Ninja 400 .   These two bikes are superb at their job and this thing leads to confusion. In terms of looks personally, to me Aprilia is looking more dashing than Ninja, now it doesn't mean that Ninja is not a handsome bike there is no doubt but for me, Aprilia is a bit more sexier. The topic to discuss is definitely not looks, it's about power, price, and other things, so, drop your gears and

Honda has launched the NX500 their new adventure tourer, the NX500 has everything necessary for mile-munching and adventure trips. The Honda NX500 is standing against many adventure tourers and among them, the biggest rival in my opinion is the new Royal Enfield Himalayan 450.  The new RE Himalayan 450 is loaded with features and power too, and the price of the new Himalayan 450 is very attractive as well. So, it's going to be very interesting to see which of these two bikes which one succeeds in grabbing the market, and which one you should choose. Engine Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 Engine - liquid-cooled single-cylinder DOHC 452cc engine with 84mm of bore and 81.5mm of stroke Power -  40bhp of power at 8000rpm Torque - 40Nm of torque at 5500rpm Honda NX500 Engine - liquid-cooled DOHC parallel twin 471cc engine which has 67mm of bore, 66.8mm of stroke, and a compression ratio of 10.7:1 Power -  46.8bhp of power  at 8600rpm  Torque -  43Nm of torque   at 6500rpm.  There is not a ma

The smell of adrenaline is soothing to those who know how to push their limits, who know how to lick the track, who know how to scare their rivals, who know how to go fast while standing with the fasters, and to those who are coming out from Aprilia's factory where their blood has to experience the addition of aggressiveness.  Aprilia has launched the all-new Aprilia RS457. Even though this one has a small engine unlike Aprilia, it has that same level of craziness, zest, and quality as Aprilia.  There is one more fact about this bike which is a proud moment for all Indians because this Aprilia is completely built in India. The bike has charming looks as you expect from Aprilia, and along with looks the quality and the fit finish of this bike are just top-notch. This bike is standing against the BMW G 310RR , KTM RC 390 , newly launched Yamaha R3, TVS Apache 310RR, and none other than the Kawasaki Ninja 300 and Ninja 400 .  The price of Aprilia RS 457 So the bike is only availabl
