    Launch Pack is everything except leather-heated-vented-electric-memory seats, and the sunroof. $3,400 discount vs a full optioned car.
    I sell Skodas.

    Diesel Skoda with upgraded everything.
    Volkswagen Up! with springs and exhaust. I guess you could call it a build.

    I cant believe only 1 Scout, you'd think they'd be selling better, everyone seems to want a (cringe) SUV. Are they sales figures or registrations. Would have been lots of Kodiaqs regod as demos.

    Sales figures are from the caradvice article on VFACTS new vehicle sales.

    It's possible that Scout numbers may have also been rolled up onto Octy figures and only 1 got recorded separately.

    There were a heap of Kodiaqs for June (139) which I'm figuring a lot were demos/Skoda cars.

    I'd believe only one Scout. It was probably the last one left in the country! No more, for now.

    My boss was looking at a Scout, might need to point him to the Kodiaq now. He has an Outback currently.

    Well, the number of Kodiaq's on carsales seems to be increasing (including some MY18's) so I get the feeling that people may be holding off and waiting for the diesel engine. Perhaps the dealers who weren't interested in bargaining two months ago will get back in touch with me. But I won't hold my breath...

    Vfacts report for August says that 88 Kodiaq were sold.

    June - 139, July - 56, August - 88

    So likely the June number was inflated with demos and pre-orders and now we're seeing "real" sales.

    a bit surprised how bad they are selling here, from all the 7 seats in that price range its by far the most comfortable one
    His: Golf6 5door GTI DSG Carbon Sunroof MDI and 18" Drag rims + sticker that gives extra horse power
    Hers: Skoda Kodiaq Tech/Lux pack and sunroof

    We checked out the Kodiaq and Discovery Sport back-to-back on Saturday and my 11-year old daughter thought that the back-back seats in the LR were definitely more comfortable and slightly more roomy. I know that they're not directly comparable but if one's budget stretches to $60 instead of $50-$55, a demo Discovery Sport with the Ingenium diesel engine (and an extended warranty thrown in) might have the edge. That is the way we are leaning.

    I had no idea they even made these, when I first saw it from the side I thought is that a Tiguan or a X3?

    Looks quite a nice build from a walk around.
