    Another interesting article here including details on timing for local launch - August 2017 is date slated: Skoda Kodiaq teased, initial details revealed

    Also looks like the top of the range is going to share the same 132TSI engine as the new Tiguan. It will be interesting to see whether they put in the DQ500 DSG too.

    I still can't get a handle on how big this thing will be. Will it be a direct competitor for the Tiguan and the Yeti, or is it aimed somewhere between the Touraeg and the Tiguan, which given the price disparity between the two, is probably well placed. Not sure if the 132TSI is the best engine for it on that basis, but I don't have any idea what would be appropriate instead.

    It's intended to compete in the large SUV category (Kluger, CX9, Sante Fe etc) and still boast class leading capacity so safe to say it's a size up from the Tiguan line.

    The new Kodiaq is 4.70m long and has a luggage capacity of up to 2,065 litres.

    Compare this to the current Yeti which is 4.22m and has storage of 1,760 litres.

    Or the New Tiguan which is 4.48m long and luggage capacity of 1,655 litres.

    Or the generation 1 Tiguan which 4.43m and 1,510 litres.

    So yes the Kodiaq is definitely a bigger vehicle and will be competing against the other larger SUVs as Dutch mentioned. Plus it can also be optioned up with a 3rd row seating to make a 7 seater which all of the small/medium SUVs can't.

    Lots of pictures in this Norwegian newspaper article. They've apparently been to Norway to do promo shots.

    Good pics on the Skoda Facebook page, is it just me or does it look like Daewoo did over a Q7?

    Good overview from the launch here: https://youtu.be/Ks6QdkSqIEc
    I don't know if anyone else follows this YouTube channel (really detailed reviews). I love it, Thomas is sooooo German.

    Can't believe they're not offering it with the 206kW TSI as in the Superb... 140kW strikes me as underpowered.. Particularly if they want it to go up against the Kluger..
