What an entrance the new ŠKODA Kodiaq made at the Paris Motor Show! It definitely aims to impress with its wide, three dimensional grille giving it a striking presence. The Kodiaq is the brands first large SUV and 7 seater and it certainly stands out. In combination with the narrow, raked headlights, it is instantly recognisable. The side and rear views are sharp and the tailgate is expressively sculptured. 

How is it different from rivals? 

Considering the Kodiaq is ŠKODA's first SUV it really is difficult to top! Its innovative design and features make it unique. From things you would not think of such as door protectors and cameras creating a birds eye view, the Kodiaq covers all angles (quite  literally). There is plenty of technolgy available too. Overall it has more technology, greater interior space and more value for money with prices starting from just £21,495. What is not to love!

Engine and trim levels 

The Kodiaq will be launched with the choice of five engines and three trim levels. The trims are the Kodiaq S, SE and SE L with an addition model seven seater option. Engine size will range from a 1.4 litre up to a 2.0 litre. There is also the option to choose between a six-speed manual gearbox and a six or seven speed automatic gearbox.

Space and practicality 

A prominent feature of the Kodiaq is its boot space. If you require a lot of room for shopping, commuting or taking the family out this car is the perfect option. With a boot space capacity of up to 2065 litres with the seats down and 720 with the seats up space is really not an issue. There is also the option of folding front seats to make even more room. Even though the kodiaq has the option of 7 seats it is only 40mm longer than the Octavia so doesn't look over sized by any means.

Safety 

Optional features will include:

  • Area View - giving you a birds eye view of the car when reversing into difficult spaces, meaning parallel parking need not be avoided.
  • Tow Assist which will steer the vehicle and trailer during slow-speed reversing.
  •  Manoevre Assist - this automatically brings the car to a halt safely if it detects the driver is no longer able to drive and a system that automatically drives the car in slow moving traffic.
  • City Emergency Break - this stops the car if a potential impact is detected at up to 21mph. 

Technology 

As standard the Kodiaq comes with a 6.5 inch touchscreen which has the option to be upgraded to an 8 inch screen. Bluetooth and SmartLink, which supports Apple CarPlay, Android Audio and MirrorLink are available as options. Integrated Sat Nav can also be an option with off road cameras and parking camera aids. A 64GB flash memory and DVD drive is also available, as well as a WLAN wi-fi hotspot, integrated tablet holders in the rear of the front seats and a wireless smartphone charging pad. The Kodiaq can also be "Constantly Online"  which means the screens can show live traffic information, Google Earth Street View, live fuel prices, parking information, news and weather updates. Keeping you endlessly entertained.
