Kodiaq Mk. II

Post by ChrisL » Tue Jan 08, 2019 5:30 pm

If they were looking to release a Kodiaq Mk. II, what things about the current version would you change?

For me by far the worst thing about the Kodiaq is the pathetic reversing lights which could so easily and cheaply be improved.

The current voice recognition is not worth using.

I know lots of people will mention the door protectors, and I accept that they are easily dislodged, and that when you clip them back in place, the doors don't shut. That said the fix for this is easy when you know how.
Petrol Blue 2.0TDi 190ps DSG 7 seat Edition with black leather, front/rear parking sensors, heated front windscreen/washer jets, ventilated seats, adaptive cruise control, traffic sign recognition, driver personalisation and rear view camera.

Move the light switch so that;

1. it is higher on the dash so as not to be accidentally nudged by the driver's knee when entering or editing the vehicle.

2. the green indicator lamps are not obscured by the steering wheel and are more within the driver's line of vision.

The chosen drive mode stays chosen after restarting.
USB socket in the rear of the centre console.
Restructure the rear seat bases to fold forward - allowing flat floor in the 5-seater (and not wasting the footwell space)
Stronger retraction of load cover, and give intermediate stop position(s) (à la Superb).
Store umbrellas so you can get it BEFORE you open the door.

Or even make them switchable between permanent live and ignition switched?
