You can't expect 1.4 liter SUV to be sporty at any mode.

True enough!

I suppose we're talking "sportier", here. After all, compared with a decent lightweight Ferrari, even a 280bhp Kodiaq is never going to be a sports car.

On the other hand, a 1.4-liter Kodiaq would leave a 1.5-litre Triumph Spitfire in the dust ...

Engine capacity is a misleading indicator of power in modern cars. F1 cars are only 1.6.

I do think of an SUV as 'sportier' too, as DaveM put it. The non-sport version is an MPV.

F1 car engines don't have to last years only some competitions.

Well, for the first time since owning the car, i had the full seven seats in use, 6 adults and 1 5 month old Granddaughter.
A 200 mile round trip of, mainly fast ( ish ) A roads and Motorway and the fuel consumption wasnt too bad at all, I had switched to 'normal mode' for the journey.
The real point here is that the car performed brilliantly fully loaded. Power and performance is quite brilliant tbh, most of the time you would really not have known you had a fully loaded car.
Anybody considering the 150bhp Petrol 7 seater and are worried about its ability to pull along, well, don't, its bloody brilliant.
Ive just realised that i've used the word 'brilliant' quite a bit.
Well it is.

Very True! I think Eco on the Kodiaq is about as much use as a chocolate tea pot!.
It is a pain in the @rse and doesn't save any fuel that I can see.
Sport mode Hurts my automotive sensibilities. Constant (almost) red lining a 1398 cc engine pulling a 30cwt brick can do it no good whatsoever and it guzzles fuel.
Being very old ;) and having driven nearly all my life for business covering 1/4 of England I must admit to now being a 'comfort' driver.
I don't really worry about fuel consumption that much. But like everything else at my age I just want a peaceful life with as little stress as possible! ButI don't dawdle. Nobody behind me will be getting irate at my lack of progress!

Fear Not.
VAG engines tend to loosen up at about 4-5K miles, at which time the consumption will improve. (well in my 5 Skodas it has anyway!)

Looking forward to that :) My old car was averaging 10L/100km (28.25mpg UK) since I switched to winter tyres in November so this is an improvement.
