This is Lava blue (petrol blue) Kodiaq...not L&K version though.

I've got my L&K in Petrol Blue, but for the moment sitting in the garage, not picked up yet...so I can't make the "real-world" photos yet.

Lava blue is french name for Petrol blue ;) Same color...it just changes a bit with the light (obviously at the car show, they had a lot of direct light pointing on cars).

Here's my car (still wrapped) in the rainy weather and bad photo quality (phone):

I find this color really nice, as it "shines up" a lot in the sunshine.

In rainy weather it looks a lot darker and more dull, but not more dull than all the "shades of grey" or shades of monochrome colors (black/white/business grey, quartz grey etc). Skoda sell around 80% of cars in black/white/grey colors, 10 % in Blue and the remaining 10% is the rest combined (green, red, brown, etc...)

Thank you for that, the difference with the L&K is the lack of a black plastic skirt, so whilst Petrol Blue doesn't work with a standard car, it should with the L&K.

Didn't like Quartz Grey in the flesh, felt too dull to me. Quite liked magic black, but I think blue is going to win out

I reckon there's a very slight green/aqua/cerulean tinge to the blue. It's not a straight midnight blue ala Audi.
I agree, there is an odd tinge to the colour in bright lights, but I’m going for teal blue (Pantone 17-5024) rather than cerulean blue.
Ah yes, teal was the colour I was thinking of. Glad I’m not the only one that found the tinge to the colour - thought I was going mad for a moment!
That's it, I'm off to Specsavers in the morning :lol:

That’s what I have on order for August when my Edition comes off hire, no running board on mine, just a virtual cockpit. I was tempted with the black but could have been a nightmare keeping clean.
It's a 'Kodiaq' and not a 'Bear' unless you are 5 years old.

@Kingly, slightly off topic but how is the 2.0 TSI engine so far? Is it what you expected?
