Just in the process of working out the spec. My question - is the DCC worth it . I have read conflicting reports in the press. The car will not do any off road or high speed sporty driving, I already have cars to covet that . It's just going to be a daily driver.
Any opinions would be gratefully appreciated.
Cheers, Andy

Hi,

I had the same question, with a real mix of people saying it's worth it versus don't waste your money.

I test drove the 190HP DSG Diesel (which is the car I'm getting) on 19" wheels, WITHOUT DCC.......and decided I didn't need it. I like quite a firm ride rather than soft, and was very happy with the ride and performance of the standard suspension, so no need to spend an extra £1000.....I've bought some more options instead! The ride was nice and firm (though not too firm) and felt quite sporty without DCC.

If you wanted a softer, more comfortable, more cushioned ride then I would suggest it might be worth looking at (or avoid 19" wheels), but if your preference (like mine) is for a stiffer set-up then you'll probably be quite happy with the standard suspension and an extra £1000 in your pocket.

But at the end of the day it's personal choice, and I'm sure others will come on here and argue for DCC 😀

The only real answer is to test drive a Kodiaq WITHOUT DCC

Then if YOU are happy with the suspension save your money.

I have DCC on my Superb (std on the L&K) and despite thinking it would be a gimmic, I really like it... enough to spec it on a Kodiaq,
SWMBOs Yeti is far too crashy IMO, but SWMBO is happy with it... until she drives my Superb!

Every persons interpretation of ride is different.
For me it means I can set it on one of 3 settings to get what I prefer, knowing me it will probably be half way between 2 of the settings :lol:
But as I often travel on some bumpy roads, and also don't like a car to lean a lot when I drive with enthusiasm, its a worthwhile option.
I can set comfort on the rough roads, and normal or sport on good roads.
Not too mention at the time of ordering I couldn't drive one, so it is added insurance ;)
As Gizmo says, take a test drive of a non DCC equipped one in as close as the same configuration you would want, and drive over as many different surfaces as you are likely to encounter during normal use.

I'd say it also depends on the mileage. Hubby is a high mileage driver currently driving a Volvo and I'm a low mileage driver with a BMW M Sport. So we need to be able to switch between set ups. DCC all the way for us
