‘Cut-price Discovery Sport rival hampered by lethargic engine’

For those looking at a seven-seat SUV, Skoda’s first ever offering is worth a look. With a smart design and a price tag below £32,000 for the most powerful petrol model, could this be a cut-price Discovery Sport?

On the road, the Kodiaq manages to ride well even on its 19-inch wheels. The suspension is firm enough to prevent any float or pitch that the larger Superb can suffer from, but it’s also supple enough for long-distance comfort.

Refinement levels are generally pretty good bettering the SEAT Ateca with less suspension and tyre thump and with a less firm ride than the Audi Q2. This is a much more resolved car with better practicality than both.

The biggest problem with this model is the engine. If diesel is a concern and you’re considering a petrol, this is a baffling offering. Unless you drive in Sport mode and manually change gear yourself, performance is uninspiring; the gearbox is slow to kick down and exacerbates the feeling of an engine that’s unwilling to work. We managed mpg figures between the low to mid 30’s.
