Milton Keynes, 27 November 2017: The Kodiaq saw off fierce competition to take top spot in a sector of the market where premium brands often dominate. The TopGear Magazine judging panel praised the Kodiaq’s attention to detail, along with its exceptional value for money.
Commenting on the Kodiaq’s award, Charlie Turner, Editor in Chief of TopGear Magazine said: “The Kodiaq is a brilliantly thought-through, well-executed product.”
ŠKODA’s game-changing large SUV has been grabbing headlines since its arrival earlier this year. It has triumphed in numerous comparison tests and has won five key industry awards, including Auto Express Best Large SUV and What Car? Best Large SUV.
The Kodiaq is ŠKODA’s first seven-seater of the modern era, and the brand’s first foray into the large SUV sector. Launched in the UK in March, the range is set to expand further with the introduction of new Scout and Sportline models. Prices for the Kodiaq range start from £22,190.

Emotion, dynamism and passion – ŠKODA combines all of these qualities with the ‘vRS’ initials. Even before its market launch, the Czech car manufacturer’s first high performance SUV, the ŠKODA KODIAQ vRS, proves that it can hold its own on the most challenging race track in the world. Racing driver Sabine Schmitz set the lap record for a seven-seater SUV at the Nürburgring’s legendary Nordschleife in the ŠKODA KODIAQ vRS, highlighting the car’s performance qualities. The KODIAQ vRS extends the range of vRS models in the ŠKODA line up.
