Skoda Kodiaq rear


  • The Kodiaq has the highest entry price of all the three-row SUVs on this list. It is also the only one to be a petrol-only offering with AWD as standard. The Toyota Fortuner is the only other model to offer a petrol engine, but without a 4x4 drivetrain. Meanwhile, the MG Gloster and Mahindra Alturas G4 are diesel-only models.

  • The Skoda SUV’s entry-level Style variant is a lakh pricier than the mid-spec MG Gloster Smart. It is almost Rs 2 lakh more expensive than the Fortuner’s petrol-automatic and over Rs 3 lakh more expensive than the top-spec Mahindra Alturas G4 4WD.

Toyota Fortuner Facelift Launched At Rs 29.98 Lakh. Now Available In 2 Avatars

  • Toyota offers the Fortuner with a 2.7-litre petrol engine making 166PS/245Nm with the choice of a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic. With fewer technological comforts and only a 4x2 drivetrain, these variants are notably more affordable than the Kodiaq.

  • MG offers the Gloster with two diesel engines: a 2-litre turbo unit and a 2-litre twin-turbo engine. The former makes 163PS/375Nm and is only RWD while the latter produces 218PS/480Nm and comes with 4WD. Both engines are mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. It is also the only model here to offer ADAS tech in its top trim which is over Rs 1.5 lakh pricier than the top-spec Kodiaq. The Gloster is also the only model here to be offered with a 6-seater layout, using captain seats in the middle row for added comfort.

MG Gloster Savvy: First Drive Review

  • The Alturas is the most affordable model here. Its 2WD version is more affordable than the entry-level Gloster by over Rs 2 lakh while also being the most affordable 4WD car here by a couple of lakhs. The Mahindra SUV is offered with a 2.2-litre diesel mated to a 7-speed automatic and producing 181PS/420Nm. 

  • Skoda’s flagship SUV will also rival the upcoming Jeep three-row SUV that is expected to arrive later in 2022.
