The Skoda Kodiaq is a large seven-seat SUV that shares many of its mechanical components with other Skoda models and different vehicles within the Volkswagen Group family.

The Kodiaq was launched in 2017, and was subsequently joined by a more off-road model called the Scout, a sportier model called Sportline and a more luxurious version called L&K. A high-performance vRS model joined the range in early 2019.

The Skoda Kodiaq has received consistently positive reviews from the UK motoring media since it was launched. Lower-spec models have generally earned higher scores than the more expensive models. It has been particularly praised for its spacious cabin and value for money, although the driving dynamics are not necessarily as involving as some rival vehicles.

In a 2020 What Car? survey of the 50 most reliable cars in the UK up to eight years old, the petrol-engined versions of the Skoda Kodiaq ranked equal 44th. Diesel versions didn’t make the top 50.
