SIZE, SAFETY AND SEVEN SEATS THE KEYS
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.
