SIZE, SAFETY AND SEVEN SEATS THE KEYS

Mercury (Hobart) - Motoring - - MOTORING -

BREN­DAN Pawsey ad­mits his love of cy­cling may have had a sub­lim­i­nal in­flu­ence on his de­ci­sion to buy a new Skoda Ko­diaq. The Czech brand is a big sup­porter of cy­cling and Pawsey says he of­ten saw Skoda ve­hi­cles at Tour Down Un­der events. “You’d al­ways see the sta­tion wag­ons around the place,” he says.

He was more drawn to the Ko­diaq as a new model brim­ming with the lat­est tech, such as ac­tive cruise con­trol and au­to­mated emer­gency brak­ing. “The airbags go all the way to the third row,” he says. He traded a Honda CR-V for the Ko­diaq be­cause it had seven seats but wasn’t as bulky or ex­pen­sive as a Toy­ota Kluger or Nis­san Pathfinder. The car ar­rived in time for school hol­i­days.
