Combining powerful styling, surprising interior space and state-of-the-art technology, the new ŠKODA Kodiaq redefines what’s possible with an SUV. As the marque’s first seven-seat vehicle, it offers more flexibility than ever before, and its sturdy build – coupled with ŠKODA’s reputation for reliability – means it’s ideally suited to active families. Everyday journeys will never be ordinary again.
The new Kodiaq follows the brand’s VisionS concept, boasting a wide grille and raked headlights up front and a sculpted tailgate with distinctive C-shaped lights at the rear. Dynamic lines and chunky curves give an athletic yet muscular feel, while thoughtful details such as the chrome edging around the side windows add a touch of class.
A selection of matt, metallic and pearl effect paint colours is available, alongside wheel options to enable you to customise the Kodiaq to your tastes.
With high-quality materials and three-zone air conditioning, the ŠKODA Kodiaq brings a touch of home comfort to the great outdoors. You and your passengers can relax in the supportive seats and, thanks to an intuitively laid out dash and centre console, all the essential controls are at your fingertips.
Space is the real strength though; with five or seven seats to choose from, you can pick the version best suited to you needs. A generous boot provides room to carry luggage of any size and shape – with a capacity of up to 2,065 litres with the rear seats folded down, the five-seat model boasts the best capacity in its class.
Designed with drivers in mind, the new Kodiaq features a host of technological features to both assist and entertain. Debuting the ŠKODA Connect system, it offers real-time navigation and information services, while the digital voice enhancement function makes conversation clearer by projecting the front occupants’ voices into the speakers of the rear seats. Clever systems such as High Beam Assist are also in place to improve your night-time visibility without dazzling other drivers. This function automatically projects or dims the high-beam headlights according to the status of oncoming traffic.
The Kodiaq is truly a car that can meet a variety of needs. Available with a choice of five engines, manual or automatic transmission, and a four-wheel drive option, it has you covered in any situation. The 2.0-litre diesel option is powerful and confident, transporting seven effortlessly and with surprising economy. Those who prefer petrol will find the 1.4-litre, 123bhp option strong and smooth.
Regardless of whether you choose the two or four-wheel drive option, the Kodiaq offers plenty of grip and respectable body control through corners. Opting for Dynamic Chassis Control enables you to change the suspension settings for a sporty or super-comfy ride, depending on the terrain.
In a family vehicle, safety is key and the new ŠKODA Kodiaq achieved a full five-star rating from Euro NCAP, proving it puts protection first. Standard equipment includes Autonomous Emergency Braking, which looks out for pedestrians and applies the brakes if you don’t respond in time, as well as blind spot monitoring and lane keeping assist on top spec versions. Options include a driver fatigue sensor and rear side airbags for maximum protection in the event of a collision.
