The Kodiaq promises to be a firm favourite for many Kiwi families thanks to a bold design, advanced platform architecture and ŠKODA’s revered functionality.

The Kodiaq is eye-catching and dynamic in our cities, yet rugged and flexible in our tough countryside. With 7 seats as standard and undoubtable value, this is the perfect vehicle for Kiwi families to discover their Simply Clever philosophy. 


This SUV arrives with Pedestrian Monitor, ŠKODA's new autonomous assistance system that prevents collisions with pedestrians and minimises the car's speed in the event of an impact, as well as blind spot detect and Park Assist technology that make the most of the vehicle's radars and cameras. 

Wireless charging, 3 zone air-con, and full leather seats, heated front seats and surround ambient lighting put driver and passenger comfort and needs at the forefront of the Kodiaq's design. 

The Kodiaq body skeleton design uses high strength, light weight steel. There are clear benefits for safety with protecting the occupant cabin but also the reduced weight enables the Kodiaq to achieve excellent efficiency and agility.  

More refined than many luxury SUVs, with great design ideas, packaging and price points, it makes the brand come of age and reach critical mass, it’s family friendly features are indeed simply clever.

The all-new Kodiaq SUV has shone a spotlight on ŠKODA in New Zealand unlike ever before. Demand has been phenomenal and sustained. Kiwi families in particular love how the Kodiaq excels in everyday life with its clever combination of quality, efficiency and European design. What’s started with Kodiaq will continue with more fresh SUV’s and electric vehicles coming very soon
