Expect some mild massaging of prices here over the previous generation model, but you can still bank on decent value. If you budget somewhere in the £33,000-£40,000 bracket for most variants, then you won't be far out, but if you want to spoil yourself with a higher-spec Kodiaq, you're going to be paying in the £40,000-£45,000 bracket. Skoda expects quite a high take-up for the more dynamic-looking 'Sportline' trim that it's reintroducing with this MK2 model. This version gets a gloss black finish for the D-pillar, the side mirror caps, the rear diffuser and the badging, plus a bespoke design for the 19-inch wheels, with 20-inch rims available at extra cost.
In the mainstream part of the range, you'll be choosing between three interior trim designs. There's 'Loft', which offers conventional grey fabric seats. But a bit nicer is 'Lounge', which uses a suede-like microfibre cloth with yellow stitching. Or you might like 'ecoSuite', which features either black or cognac-coloured leather that's treated and tanned using sustainable practices. Lots of clever options can be added including a twin wireless charging pocket that comes with its own air vent keep your handset cool as it charges. You can also add a head-up display, adaptive damping, massaging seats and a parking assistant that remembers your manoeuvres. Across the line-up, all the usual drive assist features are provided and you can add to them in various ways, including a 'Travel Assist' semi-autonomous driving system.
