Morang Auto Works, the authorised distributor of Škoda in Nepal, has just rolled out the Škoda Kodiaq Laurin & Klement sports utility vehicle. The automobile has a price tag of Rs15.80 million.

The newly launched vehicle has a 2.0 TDI diesel engine generating 110 kW (150 PS) of power and 340 Nm of torque, the company said in a press statement. The all-wheel-drive system with electronic control delivers a big increase in traction, stability and safety.

According to Morang Auto Works, the Laurin & Klement variant is designed and featured in a way which is a first for any segment in Nepal. The vehicle’s individualistic exterior design and plethora of distinctive features are an arresting sight, the company said. The fascia is dominated by a distinctive chrome grille and the appearance is characterised by LED headlights with illuminated ‘eyelashes’ and 18 (R) trinity alloy wheels.

The most luxurious version of the Kodiaq offers a 360-degree surround area view, with an array of four wide-angle cameras mounted on the front and the rear. The wing mirror cover displays the immediate area surrounding the car on the infotainment system.

Hands-free parking minimises the hassle of parking in tight spots by automatically selecting an appropriate parking place in a row of parallel or perpendicularly parked vehicles. The sports utility vehicle opens up new vistas with the virtual cockpit, a customisable digital instrument panel that offers a fresh perspective of all important driving data and navigation, said the press statement.

The ‘simply clever’ features available in the Kodiaq Laurin & Klement are further proof that Škoda always offers a little bit ‘more car’ for the budget which is a practical and convenient assistance in everyday life.

The power nap package of the Kodiaq Laurin & Klement enables rear passengers to sleep soundly on a long journey. It includes variable headrests on the outer seats for a comfortably supported head posture while sleeping and two blankets.

The Kodiaq Laurin & Klement also features a digital voice enhancement feature  which transmits the driver’s and front passenger’s voice to the passengers in the rear via a microphone in the cockpit facilitating smooth interaction among the occupants. The Škoda Kodiaq Laurin & Klement is available in five colour options: lava blue, quartz grey, moon white, magic black and magnetic brown.
