New Skoda Kodiaq 2022 Review reviews

July 7, 2023

Need help buying your next car? Click the following link and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price – from Mat Watson!

This is the updated Skoda Kodiaq!

Now at first glance, you might think not that much has changed. And to be honest, you’d be right! Sure the front and back bumpers have been tweaked slightly, but otherwise, it’s pretty much the same car. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing!

Once you step inside, you’ll be treated to a well-designed yet simple layout. Thankfully there are a number of physical buttons and dials on the dash, while you’ll also find soft-touch, high-quality materials throughout. Of course, you’ll also find a third row of seats here, too! Although unfortunately, they’re not available in the entry-level edition.

In terms of engines, there are three to choose from, with the top of the range model being the vRS edition, which has a 2-litre petrol that’ll deliver 245hp. If you’re not in the market for a vRS, however, then you can still get the 2-litre petrol but it’ll put down just 190hp.

So what do you think – is the Kodiaq still the best 7-seater for under £50k? Or should you look somewhere else instead? You’ll have to keep watching to find out!

    Burberry London? Damn, our loved guy Mat has some racks!

  3. The Kodiak is shit compared to the Karoq. It seems the Karoq is really well thought out whereas the Kodiak just isn't

  4. The pre facelift car is way better. They fucked up

    Loved the video, quite a fair appraisal of the car, but all your funnies were unnecessary.

  13. I only have one question, because I'm curious and just had this with my 2020 Kodiaq Scout:
    Did they solve the rear break problem with the facelift or not?

  14. how the fuck did they mess up the cup holder

  15. I had one of these as a rental recently. Liked the quality of the interior design, adaptive cruise control and parking cameras. It was, however, a hulking piece of sh*t, impossible to park properly, has the turning circle of a nuclear submarine. The engine sounds impressive, but it just felt "pillowy" when passing people or going around tight bends. Unless you have too many kids, just buy a damn sedan.

  16. What a joke trying to find your choice of skoda gave up

  17. Why is this a BMW? This is supposed to be a VW Group car! Lol

  18. No hybrid version though?!

    It’s not skoda👆 it’s a ed sharen😂🤣🤣🤣🤣

  20. Get the badge in lad. 😂😂😂

  21. This review convinced me to buy a kodiaq. Happy new owner…

  22. 8.07 Are you sure the Auto Stop wasn't on? Obviously not for parking 😉 I honestly thought it didn't pull away well after watching your review but upon driving it myself, I never had this issue at all. I can only think that the Auto Stop was applied.

  23. Skoda very Govno.

    Despite all the "smart-assing" not the smartest reviewer, since the "to high trunk button" is easily resolved with programming the height of the trunk lid with holding for a couple secs of the same button on height desired. Not even starting about the "issue where the key/remote is to be kept"… C'mon!

  25. Ignition button….is in THE best place as that's where ignition keys were in the good old days. It just makes sense to me. And as for 'finding somewhere else to store your key'….I find my pocket works perfectly (the cars come with keyless entry and start/stop afterall). I sometimes wonder if Matt thinks these things through lol

  26. No cupholders??

  27. Interesring remark about the DSG. You see, I sometimes drive a 2013 Superb with a 130hp 2.0 TDI with the “older”, 6 speed DSG and you can manoeuvre it just fine, it’s alright, it’s not jerky at all. They must have messed up the software a little bit with the later 7spd versions. However, I occasionally also drive a 2010 Panamera 4S, with the 7spd PDK and it’s the WORST gearbox to reverse with. It’s the definition of the opposite of smooth and controlable. It’s like a bloody on/off switch and when you’re on the slightest gradient and you want to start reversing, the auto hold function engages but so does the clutch and I almost stalled an automatic car.
    I’m sure all these smoothness problems could be solved with a better software but they should do it from the factory.
