    VW is pushing into sub-premium territory with their new range of vehicles so expect pricing to reflect that.

    Of course if you've been driving around an $80k car then its hard to compare directly to a $45k car. The 132TSI is going to feel like a bit of a slug compared to a supercharged V6.

    Comparison of Alltrack to Kodiaq is probably a fairer line-up. Otherwise if you don't need the 3rd row of seats grab a second-hand Audi Q5 for similar money....

    Apparently may be wise to not go for the 19 inch wheels

    So today I dropped of my Ocky RS for its first service. The dealer had a white Kodiaq there in the lot. I had a good look at it. Well put together, but I was a little disapointed in the third row seating. As a short haul or every now and again it would be ok but not all the time even with kids( wife has a Kia Carnival). Would be difficult for adults to climbed into the third row. Car goes on sale on the 3/6/17. Dealer told me it wasnt supposed to be on the lot and cannot be driven untill that date. They only had one and it will be a demo he said. He also said stock was going to be hard to get.

    Yes I don't see the Kodiaq or LWB Tiguan as serious 7 seaters. More a 5+2. And the 2 being small kids for short trips. You wouldn't want to use the 3rd row seats for long haul as you lose all your boot space. As you'd have nowhere for luggage.

    Thats true, our Santa Fe has a bit more leg room etc in the back. But its crap overall compared to the Kodiaq after seeing one in the flesh. And the boot is bigger overall both with the 3rd row up and even more so down. It's clear it was never meant to be an everyday 7 seater otherwise there would be airvents back there. But there are a lot of people getting around with Klugers and Santa Fes with one or two kids. And those people were all over the Kodiaq on Saturday.
