Adaptive suspension (DCC)

Post by bigboss » Wed Mar 08, 2017 12:00 am

I was disappointed to not find DCC in the options list (or did I miss it?). It is disappointing that Skoda has chosen to offer us fewer colours and options.

It bumps up the price by more than £2000.....Not sure if it's worth it.

Depends.
If you have many bumpy roads (as I do on a regular run) then its nice to have the ability to soften the car.
TBH only you can really know if it is worth it for you.

I have off road and snow mode with my 4x4 but don't know if that is because it is also dsg box.

Had a test drive today in a Kodiaq TDI 190 with DCC and a Volvo XC60 D5 (I own one from the previous generation) with air suspension.

I was surprised to see the Skoda completely outperform the Volvo regarding suspension performance and (lack of) noise. There was no comfort in the Volvo, not even in "comfort" mode. Worse, it felt nervous on the road. Skoda offered a serene atmosphere :-) on the same mixed test road. The comfort mode did not come with the "shallow wallowing" I expected, or so much less I didn't pick up on it.

I found the Kodiaq's sport mode to be similar to a Tiguan GT with its standard suspension. The Volvo, well not so much difference from "comfort", I was looking for places to turn around and go back to the dealer. Don't think people with kids are the target audience for this car, XC90 perhaps?

If I order a Kodiaq, it will have DCC for sure.

I really value DCC. Post earthquake roads are pretty jarring so being able to select comfort round town is great, but when I am able to head out of town and take advantage of repaired roads dialing it up a notch or two is highly recommended.
