Review

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

This top of the range trim comes with plush leather seats, a Canton premium audio system, 19in alloys wheels and a 360-deg camera system to help you park, but it's ever so pricey.

Despite the demonisation of diesel, the 148bhp 2.0 TDI 150 does make sense from a pure performance point of you. It's gutsy enough to haul up to seven people around with little drama and pulls effortlessly from low speeds, so joining fast-moving motorways is easy. It's quite pricey relative to the 1.5 TSI 150 petrol and not as smooth under hard acceleration.
