It’s just 40 mm longer than the Octavia but engineered inside to offer “a larger-than-average interior” in its segment. The interior length is 1,793 mm, elbow room is 1,527 mm (front)/1,510 mm (rear) and head room is 1,020 mm (front)/1,014 mm (rear), while leg room measures up to 104 mm (rear).

The Skoda Kodiaq is the production version of the Skoda VisionS concept and the first among the future models to feature this concept’s design language. It’s underpinned by the Volkswagen Group’s MQB platform. Five engines will be available at launch, three TSI petrol and three TDI diesel. Two seating layout options will be available: two-row (5-seat) and three-row (7-seat).
