Skoda Kodiaq L&K

Named after the company’s founders, Václav Laurin and Václav Klement, the range-topping version includes 19-inch wheels, embossed leather seats, piano black trim, ambient lighting and a panoramic sunroof. It adds £2,550 to the pricing of the Edition trim, but £3,000 of extra equipment.

L&K versions are offered with the most powerful engines in the line-up; a 2.0-litre TDI with either 148bhp or 188bhp, and a 188bhp 2.0-litre TSI petrol. All include four-wheel drive and a DSG transmission, though the lower-powered diesel can be equipped with a six-speed manual.

The line-up starts at £35,945 (on the road) for the 148bhp 2.0-litre TDI manual, moving up to £37,245 to add DSG to that engine, and £38,105 for the 188bhp diesel with DSG. The 2.0 TSI is priced at £37,020.

Skoda recoded its highest-ever first-half registrations in 2018, at 42,397 units. True fleet registrations accounted for 10,642 units, down 0.6% on the same period in 2017 despite a 7.9% market decline.
