The KODIAQ​ boasts a ruggedly attractive body, including subtle creases and contours that help to make it stand out from the crowd. The vehicle is adorned with 17-inch alloy wheels too, as well as black roof rails, and comes with a number of body-coloured fixtures. These include power-adjustable and heated exterior mirrors. The KODIAQ​'s colour-coded components subtly enhance its Pacific Blue or Candy White paint finish, which is issued as standard. A number of optional colours are available too, including Black Magic Pearl and Cappuccino Beige. The car also comes with range-adjustable headlights, LED daytime running lights, front fog lamps and rear LED lights – again, all included as standard.

Trim levels

As well as the entry-level S grade, the KODIAQ​ comes in SE, SE L and Edition trim levels. SE trims, for example, feature privacy glass, dual-zone climate control, four extra speakers and Cruise Control. Edition grades, meanwhile, sport 19-inch alloys, silver roof rails, black leather upholstery and additional driver aids such as Lane Assist and Blind-spot Detection.

​Comfort and technology

The KODIAQ​ is furnished with five black cloth-upholstered seats as standard, while SE grades and higher can, if you wish, be specified with two additional positions. Front-row travellers are provided with height-adjustable seating, and leather-wrapped accoutrements include a multifunction steering wheel and gearshift knob. Electronic air conditioning is available with all models, providing welcome respite from the potential extremes of external temperature. The vehicle’s capacious 630-litre boot space (835 litres with five seats in place) can be expanded even further with rear seats folded, delivering a cavernous 2,065-litre cargo capacity.

The vehicle is fitted with a four-speaker sound system as standard, which includes DAB digital radio and an FM/AM tuner, each accessible via a 6.5-inch touchscreen display.

​Performance, engines, economy and efficiency

S-grade models are installed with a 1.4-litre 125bhp petrol engine as standard, which delivers 200Nm of torque, up to 46.3mpg and a 139g/km CO2 emissions figure. Offering even greater fuel efficiency is a 2.0-litre 150bhp diesel unit, which returns as much as 56.5mpg and emissions as low as 131g/km. Meanwhile, a 2.0-litre 190bhp diesel engine is perfect for a spot of off-roading, thanks to its four-wheel drive system. It also produces a peak torque of 400Nm and 0-60mph in approximately 8.8 seconds. 

Safety and security

The Kodiaq comes with Euro NCAP’s five-star crash-test rating and a slew of standard driver aids and passive safety features. Included are Electronic Stability Control, Tyre Pressure Monitoring System, seatbelt reminders, an ISOFIX child-seat system and multiple airbags. The vehicle is also protected by an alarm system and anti-towing technology.
