Let’s start with the fact that Škoda has emerged from Yeti’s design, although the compact SUV on the market from 2009 to 2017 will also be the soon-to-be-to-be Karoq, Kodiaq is not much different from outsiders. The new form of tongue broke with friendly, rounded shapes, with stiffened, sharp edges in place, slightly angular from some angles, but a few millimeters away from a 4.7-meter SUV is not surprising at all. In any case, the Škoda tickets are well above one level, and the brand has had such a caliber model! It is interesting to see the angular wheel arches and protective elements, but the glossy plastic grille seems to be fragile, regardless of the picture of a truly rugged car when looking at the Kodiaq. This is also the merit of the 19-inch tires,
Inside, they played very cleverly with the sense of space, at the same time the Kodiaq seems to be huge inside but outdated, this is no disadvantage, as it is much better to see the sizes from the first moment. The lumbar support seats are not only good and comfortable, but their hold is impeccable, and they are not spared from the length of the seat, but electric on the driver’s side. The quality of the overall feeling is good, though it is not supposed to be present in the price range of the door puller plastic. The lacquered-brushed surface of the upper storage compartment does not really fit the image, but this is a matter of taste. The three-spoke sport steering wheel on the option list is amazing, and its catch, design and sewing are both perfect and durable.
There is not only a large space in the front, but the space on the second row of seats is even stretchable at outstretched tables, and if it is not enough, there is a panoramic roof that makes the gray-black interior lighter and more friendly. If you are traveling with five seats, this number will jump to 630, but if you’re only on the motherboard, we can count on two cubic meters and weighs 700 kilograms!
The equipment list – I\’m not joking – fills up two and a half sheets, so if you really want any small things, I suggest you look at the catalog, say 90 (!) Pages, so let\’s go! Just to mention the most important ones, LED is the rear lamp, the electric tailgate, the three-zone air conditioning, and the adaptive cruise control to 160 km / h. The 8-inch touchscreen comes with voice control (in English and German), and has a dashboard navigation feature, and Care Connect, providing remote access, so you can get instant access to parking, vehicle status reports, and standby heating and ventilation / can be activated on our smartphones, but we can even apply for technical assistance. From the point of view of security, there is the lane guide and the blind spot monitoring system,
Perhaps you\’ve found out that you did not have the 1.4 petrol engine with 125 horsepower engines, this Kodiaq has a 2.0 horsepower TDI 190 horsepower – this version is available only with automatic and all-wheel drive. The top-of-the-range peak at the top of the palette (as it is still RS) comes with a top speed of 210 km / h and 8.9 seconds of 100-degree acceleration, the latter figure being 1.6 seconds better than the intake engine knows. There is no problem, therefore, with the momentum, the 7-speed DSG is trying to do its job, but occasionally there is some uncertainty between the switches, and this decathlon can be noticed at the start-stop system either. Combined consumption in the factory was determined at 5.7 liters, and this is actually around 6.2-6.4, and in the city it is worth another 1.5 liters. The bear is surprisingly silent, and its soundproofing is outstanding, though if we take it to the raspberries, the chassis is a little undervalued. Of course, the Kodiaq will still be cultured, which will not bother you, but the accuracy and feedback of the steering wheel makes it very pleasurable to drive.
The Kodiaq succeeded well, so the campaign built around it was a good thing to rumble. With this model, Skoda stepped in, in every sense of the word. The 11.4 million test-drive car at the Style-level base with the extras listed above increased to nearly 14.1 (!) Million, resulting in 1.1 million rebates, but the end is still 12.990.000 forints. Only in comparison, with the option of Active, the starter drives the builder $ 7,043,000, although it is true that whoever takes Kodiaq will not choose it. In the crowded field, where can the Škoda bear stand, it still has time to decide on the market and the public, but the launch is definitely strong!
