The Kodiaq launches in the UK with a choice of five engines; three petrol and two diesel. Power outputs range from 125PS to 190PS, with customers able to choose between two or four-wheel drive and manual or DSG transmissions. All engines feature Stop-Start system, brake energy recovery and a powerful thermo-management system that contributes to low consumption.

The petrol line-up consists of two 1.4 TSI units, one with an output of 125PS and another with 150PS and ACT (Active Cylinder Technology). The former is available in two-wheel drive manual form only, while the 150PS version can be specified with a manual 4x4 transmission, two-wheel drive DSG and 4x4 DSG. The range-topping 2.0 TSI petrol unit delivers 180PS and drives through a seven-speed DSG 4x4 transmission.

The diesel line-up features a pair of 2.0 TDI units with outputs of 150PS and 190PS. The 150PS version can be specified with a manual 4x4 transmission, two-wheel drive DSG and 4x4 DSG, while the 190PS unit is fitted with a seven-speed DSG 4x4 transmission only.

The Kodiaq's all-wheel-drive system with electronic control delivers exceptional traction, stability and driving safety in all conditions. At the heart of the system is an electronically controlled multi-plate clutch that operates intelligently and quickly. The control unit constantly calculates the ideal driving torque for the rear axle. Loss of traction is virtually eliminated due to a control system that is dependent on driving status. When in overrun or at low load, drive is via the front axle, which saves fuel.

Off-road mode can be selected by the simple touch of a button (optional for the all-wheel-drive versions in combination with Driving Mode Select). Here, the chassis, engine management and brakes adjust their operation specifically to rough terrain. This mainly involves pulling away, traction and deceleration. In off-road mode, Hill Descent Assist helps the driver to safely master driving downhill over rough terrain by braking appropriately.

I read in one of the motoring press that the 150 diesel would be much more popular than the 190 which they thought would be too thirsty so it will be very interesting to see the performance and fuel figures for these two engines,

Well that's interesting, but the thing that I like is that you can just change to off road with the touch of a button. That's awesome that you're able to do that.
Most of them do that now. Subaru Forester* does (which I shall probably buy if the Skoda Numpties don't extract their fingers!)
* and has a proper permanent 4wheel drive system. Not like the Skoda Haldex system which most 'soft roaders' have.
