The large SUV model, which will be available in five and seven-seat guises, features the latest Skoda Connect infotainment system where controls for the car’s media, phone and satellite navigation can be found.

The overall dash design is typical of Volkswagen Group products, but the Kodiaq does benefit from plusher-looking materials than many of its Skoda siblings to create a more upmarket look.

The seats in the pictured car are wrapped in half leather and feature a ribbed design in the centre, suggesting this is a top-spec model. Images of the boot show two optional third-row seats that can be folded down flat into the car’s floor.

Skoda says the cabin offers class leading space thanks to the Kodiaq’s 4.7 metre length and 1.88 metre width. The most boot space is offered in the five-seat model, with 720 litres of storage space increasing to 2065 when the rear seats are folded down.
