New Zealand Car of the year 2017

The all-new ŠKODA Kodiaq from $44,490 + ORC

The all-new ŠKODA Kodiaq

The new ŠKODA Kodiaq reimagines what is possible with an SUV. An impressive combination of powerful design, generous space, great functionality, state-of-the-art assistance systems and innovative connectivity solutions means the everyday journeys will never feel quite the same again.

It’s also the 2017 New Zealand Car Of The Year and 2017’s most awarded car. This success has been echoed in Europe, with the Kodiaq being awarded What Car’s 2017 Best Large SUV award, Top Gear’s 2017 Best Car for Big Families and the illustrious Red Dot Design Award.

The all-new 7-Seater now comes with an all new trophy

The ŠKODA KODIAQ 7 Seater SUV is in a class of its own. And it’s not just us that thinks that. It’s been awarded the News Corp Car of the Year Award for 2017. We’ll try not to let the praise go to our heads.

Comfort

Aside from uncompromised space, the luxurious quality of the materials and the effective soundproofing helps to bring a touch of home to the great outdoors. Impressive features such as a heated steering wheel and the three-zone air conditioning* add an invaluable touch of sophistication, while all controls are thoughtfully designed to be within reach of your fingertips.

Off-road mode

The engrained practicality of the ŠKODA Kodiaq makes it the ideal companion for your everyday adventures, whether the morning commute or the school run. But the smart all-wheel drive and high ground clearance ensures the Kodiaq is ready to deploy its wild side for when the going gets a little more rough. In keeping with the Kodiaq’s considered design, the dedicated off-road mode can be selected at just the touch of a button (optional for the all-wheel-drive versions in combination with Driving Mode Select).

Spaciousness

While ample space is a given for any roadworthy SUV, the generosity of the ŠKODA Kodiaq’s spaciousness and seven seats as standard mean you’ll always have room for extra passengers. The unparalleled capacity of up to 2,005 litres with the rear seats folded down offers the largest boot within its class.

Entering new ground

ŠKODA’s speciality for creating eminently practical cars that improve everyday life has never been more evident than in the Kodiaq – the ultimate utility vehicle. The ŠKODA Kodiaq’s versatile design means the vehicle adapts to the needs of your family, whichever road you take.

All-wheel drive

The new KODIAQ is More x More. The 4×4 drive is provided by an inter-axle electronically-controlled multi-plate clutch. The coupling of the rear axle is automatic, so under normal conditions the car can utilise the advantages of front-wheel drive, and under extreme conditions, the excellent traction of the 4×4 drive.

Safety Features

Safety is always our first priority, and the ŠKODA Kodiaq introduces a range of safety features to the SUV range which are normally reserved for high-end cars. The use of high-strength steel contributes to a comprehensive package of safety features to enhance you and your family’s safety.

Front assist with city emergency brake

A car that senses danger ahead? Now that’s clever. Front Assist with City Emergency Brake+ uses a radar sensor to monitor the risks in front of you, alert you of any hazards, and will even brake on its own to help avoid a collision.

+Safety technologies are not a substitute for the driver’s responsibility for the vehicle.

Side assist – blind spot detection

The new KODIAQ sees things you don’t. Side Assist (Blind Spot Detection)**+ helps you change lanes safely by letting you know when a vehicle is in your blind spot. If so, an LED symbol in the side mirror will light up, and start flashing once you indicate.

+Safety technologies are not a substitute for the driver’s responsibility for the vehicle.

**Available in optional Luxury Pack.

Passenger protect assist

The new KODIAQ can anticipate a collision. Now that’s Simply Clever. Passenger Protect Assist uses information from the car’s braking and electronic system to ready for impact when there is a high chance of collision. In such an event, the front seat belts will tighten and the sunroof (if equipped) and windows will close to keep you in the best position for airbag deployment.

Nine airbags

We hope you never need the nine airbags that come standard in every KODIAQ. Located at the front, front side, rear side, curtain, and driver’s knee area, they help protect you and your loved ones in the event of a collision.

Rear view camera

Some forward thinking for when you’re going backwards. The Rear View Camera+ engages as soon as you choose reverse and the picture is shown on the infotainment display. While dynamic guidelines help steer you in any tricky parking situations.

+Safety technologies are not a substitute for the driver’s responsibility for the vehicle.

Rear traffic alert

The new KODIAQ always has your back. When you’re reversing, Rear Traffic Alert**+ recognises vehicles approaching from the sides and alerts you with an acoustic signal. If necessary, the brakes are automatically applied to help prevent any collision.

+Safety technologies are not a substitute for the driver’s responsibility for the vehicle.

**Available in optional Luxury Pack.

Smartlink

Smartphones get along famously with smart cars. SmartLink^^ Smartphone Connectivity with Apple Carplay® & Android Auto™ seamlessly connects your smartphone to your KODIAQ, mirroring your phone’s display on the internal screen. So, whether you want to listen to music or receive turn-by-turn directions, you can do it all without touching your phone.

^^SmartLink is compatible for selected apps with the latest smartphone versions of iOS and Android.

Adaptive cruise control

Just when you thought cruise control couldn’t get any smarter, along comes the new KODIAQ. Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)+ features a radar sensor on the front grille, allowing it to automatically brake and accelerate to a speed and distance set by you – ensuring a safe buffer between you and the car in front.

+Safety technologies are not a substitute for the driver’s responsibility for the vehicle.

Columbus navigation

Everything is at your fingertips in the new KODIAQ. The Columbus 3D navigation system features easy-to-use touch controls on an 9.2” glass display. The device offers many functions including Bluetooth, SmartLink^^ vehicle set up and much more.

^^SmartLink is compatible for selected apps with the latest smartphone versions of iOS and Android.

Traffic jam assist

Always stay relaxed, even when in a jam. Traffic Jam Assist**+ is designed to keep you calm in traffic jams. By controlling the engine, brakes and steering, it makes the vehicle firstly pull away, then brake and turn – allowing you to enjoy spending time in the KODIAQ at all times.

+Safety technologies are not a substitute for the driver’s responsibility for the vehicle.

**Available in optional Luxury Pack.

Surround area-view

You have eyes in the back of your head with the Surround Area-View**+. There are four cameras located in the grill, side-view mirrors and the handle of the 5th door that sense the space around the entire vehicle. All pictures are then displayed on the infotainment system which can help you react quicker to whatever comes your way.

+Safety technologies are not a substitute for the driver’s responsibility for the vehicle.

**Available in optional Luxury Pack.

Front and rear parking sensors

A little assistance with parking is always a good thing. The parking sensors assist the driver with parking and work in conjunction with all of the infotainment systems available for the new KODIAQ.

Automatic parking assist

If you want to make parking easier than ever, say hello to Automatic Parking Assist**+. With the touch of a button, the system will begin searching for a parking space in a line of cars. When a suitable sized space is found, the car will steer itself into the space whilst the driver controls the pedals.

+Safety technologies are not a substitute for the driver’s responsibility for the vehicle.

**Available in optional Luxury Pack.

An upper-class level of space

With the new seven-seat KODIAQ, not only can seven people ride around in maximum comfort, you also have 270 litres of luggage space, 630 litres with the third row seats folded and 2,005 litres with second and third row folded.

Three-zone air conditioning

Everyone’s in their comfort zone in the KODIAQ. Three-zone Climatronic air-conditioning** allows the driver, front passenger and rear passengers to set their own preferred temperature independently. At the same time, an enhanced air filtration system improves cabin air quality, reducing dust and pollen.

**Available in optional Luxury Pack.

Automatic tailgate opening with virtual pedal

Magic happens in the new KODIAQ. The new Virtual Pedal** lets you open the boot simply by kicking your foot underneath the rear bumper—convenient for when your hands are tied with loads of shopping.

**Available in optional Luxury Pack.

Ventilated front seats

Feel comfortable, from the bottom up. The new KODIAQ features ventilated front seats**, with front and rear seat heating, so you and your passengers can enjoy driving in all conditions, all year round.

A vehicle that knows how you like to sit. For added convenience, the new KODIAQ can be equipped with electrically-adjustable front seat with memory function. Memory function stores three separate positions of the seat and external mirrors.
