Engines

2.0 TDI 190 4x4 DSG [7 Seat]
The 188bhp version of the 2.0-litre diesel engine – available only with an automatic DSG gearbox and four-wheel drive – provides a useful amount of extra shove over the 148bhp version. That’s particularly useful if you regularly drive fully laden or plan to use your Kodiaq for towing. The only problem is the high price.
2.0 TSI 4x4 DSG [7 Seat]
It’ll be a rare sight on UK roads due to high CO2 emissions and big thirst for fuel. Performance is suitably brisk, but we’d recommend the cheaper 1.4 TSI 150 if you’re looking for a petrol.
Our pick
2.0 TDI DSG
Most buyers opt for this 148bhp 2.0-litre diesel. It&#39;s smooth and gutsy enough to haul around seven people with little drama, although the rival Kia Sorento delivers a welcome dollop of extra shove when you put your foot down.
1.4 TSI 150 DSG
Punchy petrol that can shut off two of its four cylinders when cruising to save fuel. Never feels underpowered and is decently frugal in the real world. Well worth a look if you don&#39;t want or need a diesel.
1.4 TI S
You might think the entry-level 123bhp 1.4 petrol engine – available only with a six-speed manual gearbox and front-wheel drive – would struggle in a car as big as the Kodiaq, but it actually copes reasonably well provided you don’t expect swift progress. If you don’t need to drive long distances and rarely travel fully loaded with people and paraphernalia, it is worth considering.
