YOU can or­der the Ko­diaq SUV with five seats, but to us the seven-seat ver­sion makes much more sense.

The re­sult is an out­stand­ing SUV that gives ri­vals such as the Nis­san X-trail and pricier Land Rover Dis­cov­ery Sport a hard time. Part of the Ko­diaq’s ap­peal is that it’s so keenly priced in mod­est trim lev­els, but don’t think that means Skoda has cut cor­ners. The in­te­rior is well screwed to­gether, hi-tech and log­i­cally laid out, and there’s plenty of space. What’s more, the Ko­diaq is sharp to drive, with strong en­gines and good com­fort. Four-wheel drive is avail­able on both petrol and diesel vari­ants. Price range: £22,190-£35,135 Our pick: 2.0 TDI SE (£28,775) En­gine: 2.0-litre 4cyl diesel, 148bhp Trans­mis­sion: 6-spd man, per­ma­nent 4WD Top speed: 121mph Econ­omy: 51.4mpg CO2: 144g/km
