I have a strong need for a flat load bed in the boot with the back seats folded down. I have a 5 seat Kodiaq so it has the sunken boot and no spare tyre compared to the 7 seater, and then a big step up to the folded rear seats. What I need is a raised false floor to give a flat bed from the boot lip to the folded seats. Skoda don't offer one, does anyone know of a third party that makes a raised floor?

I've had a look around and can't find anything immediately, perhaps a custom build with 9mm ply or thicker dependant upon the load and stapled or bonded felt overlay?

A Dealer in Rochdale told me that Skoda are planning to bring out a polystyrene kit that would raise the floor and allow for a spare tyre and other tools to be placed underneath a false floor. Actually loads of videos on Youtube for European 5 seat cars that have this already - when I come across one I will add a link.

Found one
advance to 5:35 5 seater raised floor - tyre underneath so why cant UK cars have this option?

If you spec for a spare wheel you get a raised floor
You can't spec a spare wheel from SE L upwards, strange I know

As Gwynvor said - its not an option - I went for an Edition 5 seat and just get a huge boot but no possibility of spare wheel with raised floor - which is crazy - currently researching if a kit may available in Europe.

It's frustrating that Skoda make it, as shown in the video, but that someone has decided that it won't be allowed in Britain. It doesn't make sense.

I ordered an SE L and wanted the variable boot floor and spare wheel. The only way this could be done was to order a 7 seater. I really only wanted a 5 seat version but went for 7 seats simply to get the options I required.
This is my first Skoda vehicle. I hope the driving experience is less crazy than the ordering or manuafacturing one. (Ordered 13 July, being told it's been at status 20 for the last 5 weeks and nobody can explain why!?!)

Guys I noticed on the configurator that there is actually 2 types of spare wheel. A normal one and the space saver one. To get the canton you have to have the space saver one so maybe you have to get it to get the variable floor?

Hi guys

12 months + on, has anyone found an aftermarket raised boot floor for the 5 seat Kodiaq?

Thanks in anticipation.

Does anyone have any pics of the 5 seat with the seats down? I didn't realise that there was a step up to the rear seats (I've only seen the 7 seat).

For some reason I thought it was two part storage, with a sort of shallow shelf first, and then a deeper bit underneath (where the space saver wheel would go if you had it). Edit - Like this:

Variable boot floor can be ordered but depends on trim/spec etc. I wanted it for my car but seems to be that a build limitation for NZ to get the price we do, spare wheel cannot be removed regardless of version.

Hi

I have a 190 SEL DSG 5 seat and took delivery in January and faced the same issue of needing a flat floor option sometimes. I tried to get an OEM solution but eventually worked out that this wasn't available- dealer couldn't really understand why either as it can be done on 1.4

However I found a DIY solution. First I bought the OEM spare wheel kit which I didn't have and this is what I use most of the time. This still leaves a step up over the rear seats. So when I need a flat boot I use my DIY floor. I purchased the two OEM floor panels from a five seat 1.4 DSG model where it is available as standard (or was) in the UK. I then made a wooden sub frame that sits on top of the spare wheel floor and supports the floor plates. This then creates a level floor.

Works very well when needed. Only thing is the the tilt feature on an OEM fitting obviously won't be there but you can still store in the void under the panel on top of the wheel.Main issue I had was getting the correct part numbers from the dealer to order the parts to match the correct trim. In the end we found a 1.4 model and looked on those fitted. You could do the same without the spare wheel kit as well and have a bigger boot void underfloor although not sure the support frame would be so easy to build and fit

I notice the new Skoda Configurator has now gone live, and a variable boot floor can now be specified.

My new car is being built next week so it's too late to change the configuration but I have spoken with my dealer (Horton Skoda of Lincoln) who are looking into whether these can be added once the car reaches them.

That sounds like progress for new builds at least. I doubt if you can retrofit in full as the tilt mechanism is integral to the floor plan/ car chassis. You may eventually get the parts but not sure if you will be able to bolt through the metal. Skoda may do something to get around this of course

You don't happen to have the part numbers for the floor plates?

565 861 411 B CA9
565 861 531 B 3FI

The third part is the back plate that in the OEM setup that sits vertically behind the back seat. This is 565 861792 C CA9 but I don't use it

These are for the dark grey trim 2017/18 MY. Other trims will have different colour codes at the end. The most difficult part to order is the top panel at the back as it does not appear on the part list except in brown trip. I got the code by finding a 1.4 version with a variable floor which was available at product launch and copied the part number
