The Kodiaq is Škoda’s first big SUV, designed to take on the likes of the Hyundai Santa Fe and Kia Sorento.

There’s a variety of petrol and diesel models on offer, and Škoda gives buyers a choice of five- and seven-seat models.

On test here we have a 190PS (187bhp) seven-seater and our car is a high-end Edition model, with a luxurious standard spec, for just over £36,000.

What are we looking for? Well, we towed with the Škoda Kodiaq at the Tow Car Awards last year.

This is our opportunity to get to know the car much better, as an everyday drive and in terms of what tow car talent it has.

There’s no shortage of talented SUVs for this kind of money – is the Kodiaq good enough to compete?
