2022 Skoda Kodiaq TSI: Observations after driving for initial 1000 kms
Drive is lethargic in Eco mode – if you are aiming to overtake a trailer, better plan at least 15 seconds in advance or shift to Normal / Sport mode.
BHPian SilverSmoke recently shared this with other enthusiasts.
Completed the 1st 1000 kms on my Kodiaq & here are a few added observations:
- Audio system sound is amazing – you just need to tweak it. I adjusted it as told by bhpians AnandB & VocalAnesthesia, it’s the one of the best systems I heard in a car. Also, give a work in handset’s equalizer too.
- Filled her up with 95 Octane, saw engine a bit smoother & an increase in FE 1 kmpl to 1.5 kmpl – evens out the price for it.
- High beams are insanely bright – please don’t use them regularly.
- Alloys look class apart though design is similar with older generation, finish gives them a lot fresher look.
- Drive is lethargic in Eco mode – if you are aiming to overtake a trailer, better plan at least 15 seconds in advance or shift to Normal / Sport mode.
- Apart from Comfort mode, suspension is stiff – bumps easily filters into the cabin.
- Stock tires provide ample grip but become noisy above 80 KMPH.
- No child lock on front passenger seat – can’t ride alone with a high energy kid in front.
- Good horn intensity & tonal balance.
- Audio sounds bit inferior if android auto connected via Bluetooth only – make sure Wi-Fi is on too.
- Doors are heavy – mom struggles to open up.
- Have not installed car perfume – new interior smells so good.
- Parents found second row more comfortable than the Innova Crysta.
- Easy to maneuver in city traffic.
- Tail light animations are terrific.
- Sensor beeps can be a nuisance in bumper to bumper traffic.
- Engine oil temperature doesn’t exceed 104°C anytime.
- Direct sunlight can cook the car – especially rear passengers – even with sunroof closed.
- TPMS is difficult to get working – may require pressure setting inputs frequently.
- Brakes are adequate but could be better.
