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

SE L trim is well worth a look. It’s a bit pricey but you get plenty of creature comforts, including 19in alloy wheels, heated front seats, adaptive LED headlights, microsuede seat trim, keyless entry and start, privacy glass, a 9.2in infotainment system, power-folding door mirrors and a powered tailgate.

The 187bhp 2.0 TSI 190 petrol adds that missing bit of performance over the 1.5 TSI 150 (0-62mph takes 7.7sec) but ramps up the price and running costs substantially. Comes with four-wheel drive and a dual-clutch automatic gearbox.
