The interior layout, fit and finish

Driving position and dashboard

You’re perched quite high up in the Skoda Kodiaq, and the driving position is hard to fault, with plenty of seat and steering wheel adjustment. One slight disappointment is that adjustable lumbar support doesn’t feature as standard on the entry-level SE trim.

The Kodiaq’s dashboard is logically laid out and a doddle to use. There are plenty of big, clearly labelled buttons, including for the climate control, that are easy to use on the move. That's preferable to forcing you to use the touchscreen for often-used functions, as the Citroën C5 Aircross and Peugeot 5008 do. The Kodiaq's instrument dials are crystal-clear and readable at a glance.

From SE L trim up you get LED headlights that do a superb job of lighting your way at night. They can adapt their beams so you don't need to dip them to avoid dazzling oncoming drivers.

Sat nav and infotainment

SE and SE L Kodiaqs have an 8.0in touchscreen as standard. It’s easier to operate than the Peugeot 5008's, with clearer, more logical menus and hardly any delay in responding when you touch it.

A DAB radio, Bluetooth, USB sockets and smartphone mirroring (Apple CarPlay/Android Auto) are fitted as standard on all versions. SE L trim adds built-in sat-nav and wireless phone-charging.

From SportLine trim upwards you get a larger 9.2in touchscreen and on-board wifi. The range-topping Laurin & Klement trim comes with a premium Canton stereo system.
