Only 3 since launch. Are Skoda telling porkies about their popularity?
I have seen about 5 over the last 6 months.

Last one joined me in the queue at Eurotunnel making our way back to Blighty on 3 Jan this year. A silver one with roof rack. Judging my the wheel trim I think theirs was an Edition.

The Kodiaq seems far from popular.
Or I am not as observant as I could be.

They just can't make enough of them so they're scarce on the roads and will be for a while.

When picking up mine a salesman at the dealership had just sold a Karoq and I mentioned I could never buy a car I hadn't driven. The salesman didn't even care if the customer had a test drive later and decided to cancel as he would be delighted to have the car in stock to sell to someone else. Different car, same shit. Skoda dealers have got it good right now.

There are plenty about. I've lost count of sightings. I have seen 4 different ones today. I have moved about from Hampshire through to Sussex over the 7 months I have had mine though, so covering quite a patch.

Most are probably in dry dock at the local Skoda dealers being repaired for all the technical faults they have.... a tad cynical but probably accurate.
It's a 'Kodiaq' and not a 'Bear' unless you are 5 years old.

I have seen three in Birmingham since I ordered mine in November. All looked good, although one was a dealership demo I think. 😊

I'm starting to see a few more around Farnborough now. There are 2 quartz grey ones, 2 white ones other than mine and a Cappuccino Beige one that seem to be within a 5 mile radius, not counting the local dealer demonstrators that is.

They're really all over the place here in Luxland. I see them everywhere. In fact I was going to say they're becoming two a penny, but that would indicate they're so common that they're of little value, and I hope it's not quite come to that yet.

I've just been in the UK for a long weekend these past few days and was happy to spot a couple yesterday - a petrol/lava blue one on the road between Peterborough and Spalding, and a grey one near Stansted airport. In general, though, it seems to me that Skoda continues to be under-represented on the roads in the UK, compared to the numbers in the Benelux countries, Germany, Scandinavia and the Baltic States.
