Looked at one in the dealers yesterday, not overly impressed I must say. And those wheels are damn ugly. Can't see Skoda shifting many at 40 odd grand.

I don’t like the wheels either, but I guess they are targeting a younger audience!

Sportline > VRS

Cheaper, more choice if engines, bodywork and interior is almost identical, wheels are much better.

I paid £29,500 for mine inc options. please tell me what the extra £13k would buy me...

Sportlines are about £30-31k if you go via Carwow.
It's a 'Kodiaq' and not a 'Bear' unless you are 5 years old.

Yep, add in the £1k fuel card back when we ordered and a bit of negotiating.

Here in NZ it's £38k, fully optioned (only things not standard are sunroof and towbar) it's £40k. Playing around with the numbers at the moment, but all I'm gonna say is to look at the end of my sig...

Even I don’t understand the vrs , maybe if it had amazing performance and 400+bhp wider colour coded arches then yes and to be honest I prefer the sport line styling

It is something I would not buy, I looked into it when we bought ours as the salesman mentioned them. I find the styling changes to the bumpers are far to discreet and cannot tell them apart from the Sportline. I don’t like the wheels - I much prefer the Sportline wheels. The engine in the VRS is disappointing, for me it should have been a V6 diesel engine - you can get the 190PS Sportline remapped to similar figures to the VRS for £500.
