Introduction

What Car? says...

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 of a rival to the Hyundai Santa Fe, Kia Sorento and Peugeot 5008.

In addition to offering both five and seven-seat versions of the Kodiaq, Skoda lets you choose from front and four-wheel drive and a broad range of trim levels. In fact, the plusher and more powerful versions push into the price range of premium models, such as the Land Rover Discovery Sport, and there's even a sports SUV version, the Skoda Kodiaq vRS. You can read about that in our separate review by clicking the link. 

But for more on the regular versions of the Skoda Kodiaq, read on over the next few pages and we'll tell you how it compares with its rivals and which engines and trims you should consider.

Then, when you decide on the car for you, head over to New Car Buying service, where you can get great discounts on the Kodiaq and many other without the hassle of haggling.
