The 2022 Skoda Kodiaq SUV, an all-rounder, and a great family car are excellent. It exceeds all expectations. It is comfortable, practical, and enjoyable to drive. However, it’s also affordable to purchase, maintain, and easy to use and live with.
The 2022 Skoda Kodiaq SUV is an excellent choice for those looking for space and SUV design on a tight budget. It offers a range of trim levels, a reasonable entry price, and a variety of smooth petrol and diesel engine options.
It also appeals to people who want premium equipment and comfort. Its appeal is further enhanced by the option of either front- or four-wheel drive.
2022 Skoda Kodiaq SUV facelift exterior
The refreshed Kodiaq may not look very different to what it was before, even to the casual observer. You’ll see subtle changes to the bold front end and the huge road presence.
The new LED DRLs have intricate details, making the headlamps sleeker than ever before. Although they don’t do much during the day, they add some flair to the evening. Next is the slightly revised grille. The new bumpers are also lower down and have subtle revisions.
The silhouette is the same as the older car, with many creases and lines that add dynamic to the design. The design of the alloy wheels is the same as the L&K version but with a dual-tone finish. There have been no changes to the dimensions, so the wheelbase and length are unchanged.
The rear features a sharper design for LED taillamps. They also have dynamic turn indicators, which add to the high-end feeling. The bumpers are also redone, just like the front. That’s all there is to the exterior of the Kodiaq.
2022 Skoda Kodiaq SUV facelift interior
The new 2022 Skoda Kodiaq SUV is a familiar vehicle. It is reminiscent of the older model, so the feeling of space is great. Bright upholstery adds to the cabin’s premium feel. The solid construction around the cabin increases the overall quality.
The new steering wheel is a two-spoke design, similar to the one on the new Octavia. You can also get ‘Lauren and Klement’ badges and leather around it.
The digital instrument cluster is also new and can be customized to display more information. It looks great too. You will also find the updated 8.0-inch touchscreen, responsive and sleek. It also includes in-built navigation, wireless Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. A wireless charging slot is located in the lower part of the device.
You will feel like you are back in the Kodiaq, with comfortable seats and ample cushioning. The memory function is available on both the front seats. A nice addition to this facelift is the heating and ventilation. The 12-speaker CANTON sound system replaces the 10-speaker setup.
Space is not an issue in the middle row. There is plenty of legroom and headroom in this row. However, if you need more space, you can slide the seats back to make it more spacious.
You can also get neck support in the headrests at your rear. This makes it a great place to relax and unwind. The cabin also includes individual climate control in the middle row and a panoramic sunroof. Sunblinds add a layer of luxury.
The Kodiaq is a three-row SUV, an important part of its success. Adult occupants will find it a little difficult to get into the third row. The middle row does not have a tumbling mechanism. This means that you will need to slide the middle seats forward, creating a small space through which you can squeeze yourself in.
You will soon notice how limited the space is in this area. Your head may be touching the roof, so you’ll end up sitting on your knees. The third row is best for children, it’s obvious. Fold the third row down, and the Kodiaq has enough space in the boot to fit a week of luggage.
How much is cost 2022 Skoda Kodiaq SUV
The Sportline is a top-of-the-line SUV, so it isn’t cheap. Prices start at PS36,610, and our test car came in at PS38.770 before any optional extras.
This is quite a significant increase in price compared to the regular Kodiaq lineup, which starts at PS26,140.
Verdict of 2022 Skoda Kodiaq SUV
The 2022 Skoda Kodiaq SUV is a great choice. It adds sporty flair and style to an already attractive SUV. It is spacious and comfortable, with a great interior, and easy to drive.
Although you will pay more for the sporty look, this trim is still significantly cheaper than the full-fat vRS version which costs an additional PS5,000. Although lower trim levels may offer more value, the Sportline is a great choice if you love its looks.
