In the same way that most people don’t get their weekly groceries from Harrods, not everyone is in a position to go premium when they’re buying a large SUV. That’s why the Skoda Kodiaq, with its attractive starting price, could be just the ticket for big families looking for value for money.
Skoda has a reputation for building highly practical cars, but the Kodiaq is actually its first large SUV and the first model from the Czech brand to be available with seven seats. The Kodiaq shares some of its underpinnings with other VW Group models, including the Seat Tarraco and Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace, but it's just as much a rival to the Hyundai Santa Fe, Kia Sorento and Peugeot 5008.
