1. Family-Friendly Features

The Škoda Kodiaq is designed with families in mind, and it shows in the many thoughtful convenience features packed throughout the SUV.  The Kodiaq makes it easy for families to stay organised on the go, boasting ample storage compartments, a centre console organiser, and multiple USB ports within easy reach to keep everyone’s devices charged. The hands-free tailgate and remote start options provide added convenience that busy families truly appreciate. The Kodiaq also has a ‘sunset’ tint for side and rear windows to protect your kids from the sun’s glare or for added privacy. There’s even an umbrella compartment in the front door – perfect for those unexpected New Zealand rain showers.

2. Spacious interior

One important factor that families look for when buying a vehicle is interior space, and the Škoda Kodiaq does not disappoint. With its well-designed and roomy cabin, it offers ultimate comfort for both the driver and passengers. With three rows of seats, there’s plenty of room for the whole family and even some extra cargo.  The second-row seats can be adjusted individually and can be folded down for more cargo space when needed. Whether you’re taking a weekend trip to the beach or a long road trip across the country, the Kodiaq is a game-changer for families who often find themselves juggling between passenger space and cargo space.

The Kodiaq has also earned a Five Star ANCAP Safety rating, making it a top choice for those who prioritise their family’s safety on the road.

4. Impressive performance

While family SUVs are often associated with practicality, the Škoda Kodiaq adds an element of excitement to the mix with its impressive performance. It offers a range of engine options, including turbocharged petrol and diesel engines, allowing you to choose the one that suits your driving style. The Kodiaq’s handling is precise, and its suspension absorbs bumps and imperfections in the road, ensuring a comfortable ride for all passengers. Whether you’re navigating city streets or exploring New Zealand’s scenic countryside, the Kodiaq delivers a pleasant driving experience.
