    Some of you may remember that I reviewed the big Kodiaq back in December 2016, but now I’ve got my hands on the UK version, complete with right hand driving position to give you guys the usual full review. As you all probably know, this is Skoda’s first attempt at a seven-seater SUV and thus far, the Kodiaq has received glowing reviews which will help it compete against key rivals such as the Seat Ateca or Peugeot 3008. Skoda has also equipped the Kodiaq with a lengthy options list, could this also help the Kodiaq compete with more premium rivals? Let’s find out!

I was considering one of these until I found out that you cannot get the four wheel drive with the petrol engine only the two wheel drive which is of no use to me where I go so its look else where. Pity really as I quite like the look. I do a lot of short trips so dont want dpf issues so no oil burners...They were available but Skoda have stopped selling petrol 4x4`s, shot themselves in the foot in my opinion.

Guys a serious question: how do you turn off the infotainment display, but keep the radio on? I just don't want to be blinded by the display when driving at night. Thanks! Btw: the setting in the settings menu (turn off after 10s) is not sticky = it doesn't stay checked when you turn off the car. :(

Well I keep wondering whats the point of having a lot of knee room if you do not have the thigh support to match that !! Is that not the case with most cars, basically if you have plenty of knee room at the back, the seats should have recliner feature to make use of that knee room, otherwise, whats the point. Nobody practically would want to slide down the seat just in case they are in the mood for a cozy nap which would place there lumbars in an awkward position unless you have a fairly recent recline angle to the seat. And when I say thigh support, I mean like on a household lazyboy !! Why compromise on thigh support when it can give so much more comfort !!!

What is it with reviewers of 7 seater cars and expecting the extra 2 seats to be like the rest!, they are designed for small people and kids, if you want a 7 seater with full passenger space at the rear get a mini bus, given this car has a bigger boot than most 7 seaters the lack rears is a good compromise

Volkswagen why? Skoda Kodiaq looks like Audi Q7. They make all of their models identical to each other brand. For instance, Volkswagen Vento and Passat looks similar to Audi A4. And then there is this model which looks like Audi Q7. If I wanted to buy Audi Q7 then I wouldn't as Skoda Kodiaq is similar to it. I'd better go for Mercedes or BMW.

U r so cool!! Best reviewer bar none. Jumping on the side bar to make it look like a SUV. I should check out before I post this what it means. Can you help with my my choice of car. I have a fiat which cost £5000 new but I have bashed it over the years. I have saved up £11000.00 to by a new car as the fiat is soo small and my 6ft children cannot cope anymore. Also it is so low on the ground I en up twisting my knee when I get into it. I would like a car that is high off the ground , spacious and looks like a 4x4. Don't laugh!! I haven't a clue what to buy. I saw this car parked and looked it up but all the reviews are pretty much saying it's crap. I also saw a Skoda Yeti but that was double my price. I don't want to go into a sale room and not know what I am buying. I know I need to research but I just end up getting more confused. Please help. Cheers. Oh ps I saw that you moved the steering wheel quite a few times and the car didn't seem to respond. So if I need to steer out of the way quickly it would not respond in time? Do you reply to posts? This will be my forever car as I will never have this money again My current car is a Fiat Panda. This Skoda looks fab. I would this one but way out of my price point. Do you know if any are falling off the backs of lorries? Lol
