Skoda Kodiaq Facelift set to be launched in Nepal

The new Skoda Kodiaq, a full-size SUV that made its world premiere in April 2021, is all set to launch in Nepal. MAW Enterprises, the authorised distributor of Skoda vehicles in Nepal, might roll out the premium SUV within this month. Its price has been set at Rs 1.71 crore in Nepal.

The new Kodiaq has already received its first mid-life upgrade since its debut in 2016. In that upgrade, the Czech car manufacturer revamped the model with changes on the exterior and interior, along with a few additions to the features list.


The exterior of the Skoda Kodiaq has been sharpened and made more distinctive owing to a number of changes. The redesigned front end gets slimmer headlamps (with LED Matrix technology available as an option), a larger hexagonal grille positioned upright, and a reshaped bumper featuring a faux aluminium skid plate. 

The SUV’s rear also features a few changes, such as a blacked-out roof-mounted spoiler with finlets, slightly tweaked LED tail lights with Skoda’s crystalline lens effect, and a new rear bumper. The vehicle also gets bold ‘SKODA’ lettering on the tailgate, making the rear rather interesting.


The Kodiaq’s interior, however, does not feature drastic changes. That said, the SUV does come with more components than before. One of the noticeable changes is the new two-spoke steering wheel, which is standard for all Skoda models, except for the Sportline, which has a three-spoke steering wheel. 

The new Kodiaq also comes with a few features that enhance the SUV’s premium feel, such as new decorative strips, additional contrasting stitching, and improved ambient-lighting functions. 

And as before, the SUV still comes with a 10.25-inch Virtual Cockpit digital-instrument display and a 9.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system that is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.


The new Kodiaq is powered by a 2.0 TDI engine—mated to a seven-speed DSG transmission–that generates 150 hp of power and 320 Nm of torque. The four-wheel drive SUV provides an average mileage of 12.78 kmpl.


The new Kodiaq measures 4699 mm in length, 1882 mm in width, and 1665 mm in height. The car’s wheelbase measures 2791mm. The boot space maxes out at 2005 litres and the fuel capacity is 58 litres.
