Skoda Kodiaq Review 2024

The 2024 Skoda Kodiaq continues to impress as a versatile and spacious family SUV, blending practicality with a touch of luxury. With its latest iteration, Skoda has introduced several updates that enhance both the driving experience and the vehicle's overall appeal. For UK families seeking a reliable and stylish vehicle, the Kodiaq remains a top contender.

Rivals to the Skoda Kodiaq include the Volkswagen Tiguan, Peugeot 5008, Kia Sorento and Nissan X-Trail.

Skoda Kodiaq Pros and Cons

Pros:

  • Smooth Ride
  • Safety Features
  • Premium feel with well-crafted materials

Cons:

  • Limited Sportiness
  • Third-Row Comfort
  • Challenging Large Size

Design, Practicality and Boot Space

The 2024 Skoda Kodiaq boasts a modern and bold exterior design that effortlessly catches the eye. With its prominent grille and sleek LED headlights, the Kodiaq exudes a commanding road presence that is both sophisticated and rugged. The sharp lines and sculpted bodywork give it an athletic stance, while the refined details, such as chrome accents and stylish alloy wheels, add a touch of elegance. This design not only appeals aesthetically but also enhances aerodynamics, contributing to the vehicle's overall performance.

Skoda Kodiaq Exterior

When it comes to practicality, the Skoda Kodiaq 2024 is hard to beat. This SUV is designed with families in mind, offering a spacious and versatile interior that can comfortably accommodate up to five or seven passengers. The well-thought-out cabin layout ensures that everyone has ample legroom and headroom, even in the third row. The seats are designed for maximum comfort on long journeys, and the numerous storage compartments throughout the cabin provide convenient spaces for all your belongings. One of the standout features of the Kodiaq is its flexibility. The second and third rows of seats can be easily folded down to create a flat load floor, making it ideal for transporting large items.

Boot space is a crucial factor for any family vehicle, and the Skoda Kodiaq 2024 does not disappoint. With all seven seats in place, the Kodiaq offers a respectable 270 litres of boot space, enough for a few shopping bags or small luggage items. However, when you fold down the third-row seats, this expands to an impressive 720 litres, providing ample space for larger items or more extensive luggage. For those times when you need maximum cargo capacity, folding down both the second and third rows opens up a cavernous 2,065 litres of space. This generous boot capacity makes the Kodiaq perfect for everything from moving house to carrying sports equipment.

Interior and Trims

The interior of the 2024 Skoda Kodiaq is a testament to the brand’s commitment to quality and comfort. Step inside, and you are greeted with a spacious and well-designed cabin that exudes a premium feel. High-quality materials are used throughout, with soft-touch surfaces and meticulous attention to detail creating an inviting atmosphere. The ergonomically designed seats ensure maximum comfort, making long journeys a pleasure rather than a chore.

The infotainment system is another highlight, featuring a large, responsive touchscreen that supports both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. This ensures seamless connectivity and access to your favourite apps and media. The digital cockpit display, available on higher trims, provides a customisable and clear view of essential driving information.

Two trim levels are available: SE and SE L.

SE: The SE trim provides a comfortable and practical driving experience. It includes dual-zone climate control, allowing both the driver and front passenger to set their preferred temperatures. The 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, ensuring you stay connected on the go. There are also USB ports for charging devices. Safety is a priority with features like Front Assist, which includes city emergency braking, and Lane Assist to help keep you on track. The SE trim comes with cloth upholstery and adjustable front seats, offering a good balance of comfort and support. Rear parking sensors, cruise control, and LED daytime running lights are also included in this trim, enhancing convenience and safety.

SE L: The SE L trim takes comfort to the next level with leather upholstery and heated front seats, adding a touch of luxury to the cabin. The 9.2-inch Columbus touchscreen navigation system provides a larger interface and built-in navigation, ensuring you always find the best route. The SE L includes a panoramic sunroof, filling the cabin with light and offering stunning views for all passengers. Keyless entry and start add an extra layer of convenience. In addition to the features available on the SE trim, the SE L includes Blind Spot Detection and Rear Traffic Alert, enhancing your awareness and safety on the road. The SE L trim offers electrically adjustable driver’s seat with memory function, making it easy to find and save your perfect driving position. Front and rear parking sensors, along with a rear-view camera, make parking and manoeuvring easier and safer.

Power and Performance

The 2024 Skoda Kodiaq offers a balance of power and efficiency, designed to meet the diverse needs of its drivers. The engine range includes both petrol and diesel options, ensuring that whether you prioritise performance or fuel economy, there is a Kodiaq to suit your needs. The standout Skoda Kodiaq PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle) further enhances the range by offering an eco-friendly alternative with impressive efficiency.

The driving experience in the 2024 Skoda Kodiaq is defined by comfort, control, and confidence. The suspension is well-tuned to absorb road imperfections, providing a smooth and comfortable ride even on less-than-ideal surfaces. The steering is precise, making the Kodiaq easy to manoeuvre whether you're navigating tight city streets or cruising on the motorway.

Skoda Kodiaq Interior

The Skoda Kodiaq PHEV adds a new dimension to the driving experience. The seamless transition between electric and petrol power ensures a quiet and efficient ride. The instant torque from the electric motor provides brisk acceleration, making urban driving particularly enjoyable.

For those who require additional traction, the available all-wheel-drive system enhances stability and control on various terrains. Multiple driving modes allow you to customise the vehicle's performance to match your driving conditions, from everyday commutes to weekend adventures. Available Engines:

1.5-litre TSI Petrol (150 PS): Delivers a good balance of power and fuel economy, ideal for daily driving and long-distance journeys. Available with a 7-speed DSG automatic transmission.

2.0-litre TDI Diesel (150 PS): Known for its robust performance and excellent fuel efficiency, perfect for long-distance driving and towing. Available with a 7-speed DSG automatic transmission.

Christian Skoda Kodiaq 2.0 TDI Sport Line 4x4 DSG (7 Seat)

This is my second Kodiaq leased from this company. First one SE model great, current one Sport Line, even better. I use the vehicle for off road work as well and excellent. Large dog tick. And loads of room for all my tools too tick. Overall best value for money large SUV on the market. Couldn't justify uplift for electric version, and you get nearly 50mpg on a run.

This Skoda Kodiak Sportline 1.5 has been a brilliant vehicle. I love driving and this has ticked so many boxes for me, its a great car and I would love to extend the lease by another year and the end of my two year deal with this car. I would also like to discuss purchasing the vehicle from you at the end of the lease.

Peter Skoda Kodiaq 2.0 TDI Sport Line 4x4 DSG (7 Seat) MY23

Updates have changed the way the car drives, for example; the brake stays on after coming to a stop it didn’t do this before and I have to now tap the accelerator when parking, very annoying and dangerous

Carl Skoda Kodiaq 2.0 TDI SE L Executive DSG (7 Seat)

The car is a really nice drive and the first automatic vehicle we have leased. I think, more than anything, the cost (possibly due to the general rise in costs) is a bit prohibitive.

Simon Skoda Kodiaq 1.5 TSI Sport Line DSG (7 Seat)

Can be a bit sluggish setting off, sometimes takes a moment for the power to kick in which is annoying. And the in car entertainment system is a bit of a pain, takes a while to connect to phones, have to change things on the touch screen - things you can change on the steering wheel of other cars I've had. Things like not seeing what radio station you're on when you've got Android Auto on is a pain too. Space in the boot isn't great when the extra seats are up and not much room for the people on those back seats but space in rest of car is amazing.

A very practical and comfortable car. I added the adaptive cruise control as an extra (standard on previous leased Tiguan), other than that everything I need in a car.

Issues since receiving the vehicle, including faulty headlight and infotainment system which are slow (if at all) to be resolved by the main dealer.
