The Skoda Kodiaq slotted in at third with 113 unit sales last month and the facelifted version was only introduced last month.

The SUV is already sold out for 2022. It derives power from a 2.0-litre four-cylinder TSI turbo petrol engine producing a maximum power output of 190 PS and 320 Nm of peak torque. The powertrain is paired with a seven-speed DSG transmission sending power to all four wheels. It is currently priced between Rs. 35.99 lakh and Rs. 38.49 lakh (ex-showroom).
