Skoda Kodiaq L&K

You can now spend £38,000 on a new Skoda

Skoda Kodiaq L&KSkoda is the value brand of Volkswagen Group, but when it has a car as well-received as the Kodiaq seven-seat SUV, it seems there’s no limit to how much it can charge.

Proving this is the introduction of a new range-topping variant, the Laurin & Klement which, even in cooking 2.0-litre 150hp guise, costs almost £36,000. Pick the 190hp diesel with a DSG automatic and the list price swells to over £38,000.

But then, it is a model with a lot of equipment as standard. For starters, all of them get all-wheel drive, and they all run on anthracite-finish 19-inch wheels. As for the rest of the spec list, even Skoda’s been drawn to say it is one that “few, if any rivals, can come close to matching”.

The L&K models get unique front and rear bumpers, chrome grille and L&K-logo’d under-door panels. There’s a standard panoramic sunroof. Heated leather seats are standard. The pedals are aluminium, ambient lighting is standard and there’s plenty of piano black trim.

A Canton sound system provides luxury audio, high-end Columbus infotainment is included and other features include a heated windscreen, ‘area view’ parking camera and progressive steering (the ratio alters depending on how far you turn it).

And although the list prices are high, Skoda says it’s still a good-value machine. It costs £2,550 more than the Edition it now sits above in the range – but all the features themselves would cost over £3,000 to option up, never mind the unique L&K luxurious that surely would make Skoda’s founders, Mr. Laurin and Mr. Klement proud.
