The trend is perfectly clear, minivans are vehicles of the past. Today, the SUV clearly took power and the 2018 Skoda Kodiaq is a new illustration. The direction the Swiss Alps to discover one of the challenges of the Peugeot 5008.
2018 Skoda Kodiaq Outside and Inside
2018 Skoda Kodiaq was first noted for its big ratings. With its 4.70 m long, it allows the presence of 7 passengers on board. Forward resumes almost exactly the concept since who announced his arrival. The profile for the less classic, makes us think of what exists in the Volkswagen Group on such vehicles, and in particular the cousin Seat Ateca. This is even more noticeable in the back of he is a challenge to differentiate it from the Spanish. However, it differs widely from its length, which makes it more imposing on the street.
Interior, once more Skoda demonstrates its efforts in terms of presentation, and quality of finish. However, the Peugeot 3008 and also the 5008 competitors designated, is clearly better in this area. In terms of equipment, the Czech refueled, using the most modern available to other cars of the group. A Tablet hyper-connected, for advanced driver assistance, are part of the lot when you put the price. We like small stuff like the umbrella in the front door, and the protections of retractable doors for does not damage the car nearby when you open them. But the highlight is the gigantic habitability, as expected of a Skoda. There are also storage spaces, but without even talking about numbers, the space available in the backseat is relative to that of the largest sedans. The trunk, following the deployed base, is 270 l (7 seats), 720 l (5 places) and 2065 (2 places) l respectively.
On the road
We made the choice of the 2.0 TDi 150 HP with 2-wheel drive, which should represent a big share of the mix sales. It is not too much heard, and pretty well does his job, but nothing more. It turns out rather nice to lead, especially associated to box d safe g which both fits Volkswagen diesel engines. With only two passengers on board and not even the weight of that of a third in hardware, obviously all right. However, we wonder about the power of this engine with a lot more world on board or with much more cargo. We can’t say, however, that it has winded behavior, but we just hope that the strength of her marriage will be sufficient to not be worried.
In terms of comfort, the 2018 Skoda Kodiaq Gets a good grade, certainly. He swallows the imperfections of asphalt without doing a dry lift that bothers the occupants. However, he demonstrated a thoroughness of behavior much lower than what is the best among these little playmates when it comes to pushing him. You will not be able to play the Fangio on the way down the mountain after dropping off the children ski course. And Yes, let’s talk about what happens when the road is covered with snow. As indeed was the case on our journey, when the flakes began to whiten the road suddenly. With our simple 4X2 transmission, it, therefore, deferred to our tires for these conditions. And it will never quite be recalled the importance of having good riding for this type of weather, which allowed us to evolve without really any problem. However, it would have felt still more comfortable with all-wheel drive, that’s for sure, especially after having tested on the circuit a convincing specific workshop.
2018 Skoda Kodiaq Prices
The new Skoda Kodiaq, therefore, seems to tick a lot of boxes to convince families and other professionals who need space. Even if it turns out being the 7 places the most affordable market, off low-cost, few customers choose Finish to access, yet not ill-equipped. Our version mid range with some options is exchanged against nearly 40,000 euros. And at this level, the competition is pretty rough.
