The ŠKODA Kodiaq is a highly acclaimed SUV with very good reason. Not only is it an affordable option that’s smartly styled, it also boast lots of interior space and impressive practicality. Available in a range of trim levels, from the SE / SE Drive (a five-seat version that can be specified with two extra seats) to the athletic vRS, the Kodiaq is a versatile on-road companion for active families.
The new ŠKODA Kodiaq looks better than ever, thanks in part to a range of eye-catching features. These include 18-inch alloy wheels, a sporty black front grille, privacy glass and a rakish rear spoiler. And at no extra cost, the vehicle is supplied with an attractive Energy Blue solid paint finish, although there’s also a wide selection of optional colours to choose from, including Moon White, Black Magic and Red Velvet.
In five-seat mode, the Kodiaq provides plenty of room for five adult travellers to get comfortable. Meanwhile, seven-seat models feature a sliding middle row that helps make access straightforward. With all seats in place, five-seat SE and SE Drive trims feature a generous 835-litre boot space. And with all but the front seats dropped, cargo capacity rises to an impressive 2,065 litres (or 2,005 litres with seven-seat variants).
When you choose the Kodiaq, you’ll be presented with a range of efficient petrol and diesel engine options. A 1.5-litre 148bhp petrol unit is issued as standard with five-seat SE trims, achieving a 41.3mpg combined figure while producing CO2 emissions from 150g/km. The most fuel-efficient option is a 2.0-litre 148bhp diesel engine, available for both five and seven-seat models. This returns a 59.9mpg combined figure and produces emissions from 141g/km. Optimal pace and power is delivered by a 2.0-litre 242bhp petrol unit, which is installed within top-tier vRS trims. This produces 370Nm of torque and allows the Kodiaq to go from 0-62mph in less than seven seconds.
This full-size SUV is a lot of fun to drive, offering accurate steering, for instance, while providing a comfortable ride at a variety of speeds and on a range of surfaces. And to help you keep up with prevailing conditions, there are Normal, ECO and Sport drive modes to choose from.
Entry-level SE grades are supplied with an eight-inch infotainment touchscreen system as standard, as well as SmartLink, which affords easy integration for your Android or Apple smartphone. SE Drive trims add an Amundsen satellite navigation system, making route-planning as intuitive as can be. Laurin & Klement grades, meanwhile, put an even greater focus on technology, with a 10.25-inch customisable digital cockpit and a Canton sound system with karaoke feature elevating your drive.
ŠKODA has a strong reputation for the reliability and safetyof its vehicles so it’ll come as no surprise that the Kodiaq has achieved a full five-star Euro NCAP crash-test score. And that’s because it’s laden with passive and active protective features, such as Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) which is standard across all trims. AEB works with the Forward Collision Warning System to alert the driver to an impending impact and autonomously implement maximum braking power if necessary.
