first car to offer seven seats
"After taking a maiden victory at our 2017 awards, the Kodiaq has reinforced its credentials over the past year to win again with its great mix of ride and handling, refinement, usability and affordability."
"With the new SportLine, you still get all the attributes that have made this SUV NZMWG Car of the Year".
"The SportLine is a cool-looking thing and with Kodiaq's credibility off the scale in the Kiwi market, it'll be a hard one for many buyers to resist."
"Sporting big alloys, a racy front end appearance and the black detailing, it is a more striking proposition than your average Kodiaq. The sports theme carries on inside where you’ll find a pair of trick seats that wouldn’t seem out of place in an Audi RS."
"ŠKODA has been cleaning up Car Of The Year Awards, worldwide!"
"The ŠKODA Kodiaq was named New Zealand Car of the Year (NZCOTY) at a special function at Auckland's Viaduct Events Centre last night. Kodiaq, a seven-seat SUV, got the votes over nine other shortlisted vehicles chosen as the year's best new models".
Stuff.co.nz"It's the Czech brand's first-ever seven seat SUV and an outstanding effort. Award-winning, even. Very much a car for the times, of course: the Kiwi love affair with these types of high-riding vehicles seems to know no bounds".
"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 shortlist for the 2017 New Zealand Car of the Year has been unveiled.
"The Kodiaq simply adds another to the number of their models that show up the competition – from within and without the manufacturer’s immediate family too, I might add."
