2018 Skoda Kodiaq 132TSI Sportline long-termer: Infotainment

Once a secondary concern in cars, infotainment is high on the list of priorities for modern new-car buyers. As a part of the 'yuge' Volkswagen Group, the Skoda team had a pretty handy parts bin from which to pick tech when designing the Kodiaq. It shouldn't come as a surprise to hear our 2018 Skoda Kodiaq 132TSI Sportline comes close to nailing the infotainment puzzle, albeit with a few minor hiccups...

2018 7-Seat SUV Mega Test

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.
