Passenger & boot space
How it copes with people and clutter
Just because the vRS has had a sporty makeover doesn't mean it’s any less practical than the regular Skoda Kodiaq.
It's a lot more practical all round than its nearest sports SUV price rival, the Cupra Ateca. That means there’s still tonnes of space up front, plenty of oddment storage in big door bins, a cubby under the central armrest and another in front of the gear selector.
With the third row stowed, the vRS has an enormous boot. We’ve squeezed nine carry-on suitcases into the regular Kodiaq and the vRS is no less spacious. The 5008’s boot is bigger and will take 10 carry-on suitcases, while the Sorento’s is so much longer and wider that it will take a stupefying 11.
With all seven seats occupied, the vRS's much smaller boot space has room for a quick trip to the supermarket or a couple of carry-on cases. The tonneau cover pulls across the whole boot area when the car is in five-seat mode and slots away under the boot floor when all seven seats are required.
The second-row seats split in a 40/20/40 configuration to allow you to fold them down completely or mix long loads with passengers.
