SPORT & LUXURY meet AFFORDABILITY!

Skoda RS diesel, is just a WOW all round vehicle both for families and adventurous people. There are so many practical features, luxurious touches, amazing power and torque from the twin turbo diesel it is just a pleasure to own and drive! Skoda warranty back up is the best in the VW family, (7 years including the starting battery) along with the reasonably priced service packs. If you’re looking for the best VW / Skoda service centre look no further than Southern Classic VW / SKODA. They are simply the best in NSW and possibly Australia. Highly recommend the Skoda Kodiaq RS diesel! (Don’t recommend the Kodiaq RS petrol if you value economy.) Hope this helps! Show details

Audi Q7 alternative with similar luxury

Its a very good value car, for some people it looks smaller than Kluger CX9 etc but it still got more space inside due to long wheelbase and compact bonnet. Un intendedly went on off-road dirt tracks which were meant for proper off-road vehicles, but it passed that no road patch of 45 minutes with flying colors. Full points for comfort, luxury and space in fisrt 2 rows and in boot. Matrix led lights are must have too. Show details

Great SUV Best we have ever owned Bang for Buck

We use it for daily Commute, school pick up drop off, work, etc, and long drives. We love Skoda SUV and it is a great bang for your buck comparing many big brands out there this SUV provides many features and it's hard to find a great-looking, comfortable, and feature-packed SUV. We have a sunroof, an adaptive cruise, and all features we can imagine...It's time to buy another car after 5 years next year and I cannot find a better SUV in this price range and maybe our next will be a newer model Skoda Kodiaq. Let's see... All the best for your search Show details

Great mid-sized SUV!

Have travelled 3000 kms in this Kodiaq Style MY22 car.
I suggest if you are looking for a enjoyable driving car but not a large SUV like a Sorento etc., this may suit.
You must include the Tech & Luxury Pack in this model. For the extra $10000 it includes apart from other additions, a digital dash, adaptive cruise & chassis & ventilated front seats which in Australia is a must.
The entry 132kw engine is ok, but I would prefer the larger capacity in the premium model. 19inch wheels are great if you want a more comfortable ride rather than the 20inch.
Overall a great car! Show details

Perfect family SUV

Using the Kodiaq for daily commute to work and some weekend long drive as well. It has got 6000k on it and runs perfectly. The car is loaded with the Tech and Luxury features and they work perfectly. Once on the highway I am getting 7.5 L/100k which is impressive for the size of the car. It has lots of room at the 2nd row but 3rd row is just for small kids.

I think most of the issues that people have reported are with the earlier models such as aircon gas leak or dashboard rattles etc. I didn't experience any of those so far.

So excellent family SUV in my opinion. Show details

Very happy but few niggles

Bought a 132 TSI in Dec 2019. Very impressed with the quirky little things like Umbrellas in doors, torch in the boot and many other things. Have been averaging around 10 per 100 km, mostly city driving in Brisbane. On highways, have got as good as 7 per 100 kms. The car drives really well. The best feature for me personally is the infotainment screen, which is absolutely amazing.
2 little issue tough: (1) My car has hardly done 2500 kms but there is ratting noise coming from the center console and dashboard. ... All door handles in particular rattle...(2) Cupholders are way too thin to hold 2 decent sized coffee mugs Show details

Love it

Bought a Santa Fe active, worst car I owned so I went out and got a 2018 Kodiaq, best car I’ve owned, so many features and love all the cool stuff like the umbrellas and door protectors. Virtual cockpit is great and headlights are great. Clocked up just over 50,000km and I wouldn’t change a thing. Getting another one soon. You can’t go wrong. Show details

Bang for your buck

This is a great car with standard & optional features that put other similar sized vehicles to shame price & comfort wise. We are extremely happy with this model & it drives like a dream. Show details

Great Car

My wife bought a demo skoda kodiaq with the virtual dash and its a beautiful car. Drives really well (actually felt way better than the tiguan we considered) and is good on fuel and has an amazing array of handy inclusions (umbrellas, luggage holders, kids device holders etc) and looks great too. Compared to the other euro's on offer the skoda was amazing value. We've only had the car for a month, so hopefully we get a great run out of it (only time will tell). Show details

I have just had this error saying
Gearbox in emergency mode you can drive on. My car doesn’t seem to accelerate well and jerking while I am driving has anyone experienced this?

Has anyone had problems with the electronics on their Kodiaq. I tried to start it today and the brake pedal seemed hard to depress, and when I pressed the start button the electronics went berserk, saying all sorts of things were wrong. This unit is not 3 years old yet and has the tech and luxury pack, so top of the range. Any answers send to jegconsult57@gmail.com
