2020 Skoda Kodiaq RS review

The 2020 Skoda Kodiaq RS is the fastest seven-seat SUV around the Nürburgring, which isn't really that relevant for the family commute. Its blend of practicality and value for money certainly is, though.

2018 Skoda Kodiaq 132TSI Sportline long-termer: Interior comfort and practicality

Skoda has marketed itself around the Simply Clever tagline locally, putting its little cabin touches and add-ons in the spotlight. Thankfully, the Kodiaq lives up to that billing with a well thought-out interior that's spacious and premium in equal measure. Fans of the brand will be familiar with the in-door umbrella, but here's a quick rundown of the 'Simply Clever' knick-knacks on board the Sportline...

Skoda Kodiaq 132TSI Sportline long-term review: City driving

It might have a raised ride height, but the Skoda Kodiaq 132TSI Sportline is very much a city car. Besides a few road trips, that's where it has spent the majority of its time with CarAdvice, so we've got a fair bit to say about it. Buckle up. The Skoda Kodiaq 132TSI Sportline has a dual-clutch transmission, and dual-clutch transmissions tend to struggle in the cut-and-thrust of city traffic...

Skoda Kodiaq 132TSI Sportline long-term review: Highway driving

Given SUVs have essentially replaced the wagon as Australia's family car of choice, being able to tackle an old-fashioned road trip is a critical skill. To make sure the Skoda is up to scratch, I grabbed three friends and twisted their arms until they finally agreed to come skiing...

2020 Skoda Kodiaq RS review: Australian first drive

The 2020 Skoda Kodiaq RS is the fastest seven-seat SUV around the Nürburgring, which isn't really that relevant for the family commute. Its blend of practicality and value for money certainly is, though; and Trent Nikolic goes for a drive on the track to show you why.

ŠKODA KODIAQ Comparisons

2018 Hyundai Santa Fe v Kia Sorento v Mazda CX-8 v Peugeot 5008 v Skoda Kodiaq v Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace

People-movers are pretty passé, which explains the continual success of seven-seat crossover SUVs like the group tested here. We’ve assembled what we consider to be six of the best, with the added bonus that all are either new models or at least recently upgraded...

Skoda Kodiaq v Mazda CX-9 comparison

For many family buyers, a conventional people-mover like the Kia Carnival or Honda Odyssey is the ultimate manifestation of apathy. A sure path to social death. The end of dreams and youth, alike. Whether this is a furphy or not, seven-seat crossover SUVs such as the popular Mazda CX-9 and just-launched Skoda Kodiaq are widely seen as a more respectable path (usually tarmac-coated) to take...

2018 Skoda Kodiaq 132 TSI Sportline (4x4) Review

Well, it was time to update the 7-seat SUV, as our previous car had been written-off. There were many things for us to consider when buying a new car, but there was a definite list of features that we absolutely wanted in our car. Some cars we were considering were a 2016 Toyota Kluger GXL, 2016 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring or a Nissan Pathfinder Ti...

2017 Skoda Kodiaq 132 TSI (4x4) review: The rental

Over the weekend I flew to Canberra. I decided last minute I was going to get a hire car so I walked into Hertz and said “give me a Skoda.” They had a rather bland white Kodiaq for me so of course I said, “I’ll take it!”. I figured after two days and over 300km of driving in and around Canberra on a vast array of road types I’m pretty well equipped to give my thoughts on my experience so here goes...

2018 Skoda Kodiaq 140TDI (4x4) review

Competition When my partner and I decided we needed something new, we wanted something decent in size. Being just over 6ft tall, I was getting tired of our little Yaris, and prior to that my BMW 125i. After much deliberation and several test drives, our shortlist was the Mazda CX-9, VW Tiguan and the Kodiaq...
