The Skoda Kodiaq is one of life's great all rounders. It offers good amounts of space for up to seven people, a plush interior, strong engines, decent comfort and it's not too pricey. So we'd definitely recommend you add the Kodiaq to your shopping list but, if you're looking for value for money and can live with five seats, try instead the superbly equipped Mazda CX-5 or cheaper Citroën C5 Aircross. Or, if you want even more practicality and one of the best SUVs on sale, then you must check out the superb Peugeot 5008.get the best price
Edition trim is too pricey to recommend, even though it comes stacked with luxuries, including 19in alloy wheels, leather seats, metallic paint, electrically operated front seats with memory settings, and extra safety kit, such as blind spot monitoring and lane assist.
Engine: 1.5 TSI
Looking at the bigger picture we think the 148bhp 1.5 TSI 150 petrol makes the most sense. True, it lacks the low to mid-range gutsiness of the diesel, but that's only really a problem when the car's filled to the gunwales with people and luggage. On those occasions you will need to rev it harder, but the rest of the time it's absolutely fine, with more poke than a Peugeot 5008 1.2 Puretech 130 (0-62mph takes 9.8sec for the five-seater and 9.9sec for the seven-seater). It's so much cheaper than the diesels whether you're a private cash buyer or a company car user.
