Skoda Kodiaq

The new ŠKODA Kodiaq reimagines what is possible with an SUV. An impressive combination of powerful design, generous space, great functionality, state-of-the art assistance systems and innovative connectivity solutions means the everyday journeys will never feel quite the same again.

Touran or Touareg underpinnings?

SUV? Check
VAG product? Check
Skoda badge? Check

It's not looking promising I have to admit

Can they reimagine it so that it isn't driven by people who get on my ****?

Seriously, desperately uncool. You start with something uncool and make a slightly cheaper verion.

Why is "reimagines" is almost universally used when describing a product which shows a woeful lack of imagination?

Nothing Italian

In common with just about every SUV it's uncool. Although this takes it a bit further into seriously uncool.

By the numbers for the masses.

Seriously uncool and seriously unimaginative.

I thought its name was "Kodak" after a blurry picture taken of other SUV's. Reimagined my ar5e.

I'm a Skoda fan but this is never going to be cool. Nothing in this sector is cool.

Straight out of the VAG photocopier. Seriously uncool.

In what way does it reimagine the SUV? It looks exactly like every other SUV. Can anyone name one thing it does differently?

As uncool as it gets. As above a VAG group photocopy. Will feel the same, drive the same, perform the same as every VAG product. Our Yeti does a job, but is desperately boring in every possible way and this will be the same.

I can't think of anything more ghastly.

I looked at the Kodiak at Geneva today and failed to see quite they've re-imagined?
They've copied the Ford flip-out door protectors and the waggle your foot to open the tailgate feature. There's an interesting texture in the tail lamp.

I sort of agree...... but.... if you really need an SUV and aren't simply posing, not worrying about the badge might be a smidgeon cooler than going for the VAG...?

It's still horrible and painfully uncool though.

The anti collision radar is neatly integrated in the grille unlike most cars where it looks like an afterthought in the lower opening.

Skodiaq. That's the nick-name sorted

Just saved Skoda a fortune in badges, too
