    There are reviews on youtube to have a look at.

    I kinda prefer the Seat Tarracco cousin to look at (mightn’t hold the same value trading in as the Skoda though) , I think the Kodiaq seems to be out a long time and maybe it needed more of a refresh than it got.

    Had one as a rental and they’re a fine car.

    I have seen a few just wondering if anyone here has one and what they think of them the sportline with the panoramic sunroof looks the business inside & out what are the engines like any problems to look for are they reliable?


  • Registered Users Posts: 72,778 ✭✭✭✭ colm_mcm


    The engines would be well proven at this stage, they’re out a while in various guises.

    There are people who specifically won’t buy a VW Group car with the pano roof because they have been known to have issues back through the years.

    Any other similar jeeps anyone would recommend? The skoda kodiaq is standing out at the moment. I was looking into Volkswagen Tiguan R line

    Just be myself driving it in my late 20s

    Tiguan R Line would be my first choice
    New Tucson, especially if you want a petrol or hybrid car. Still not sure about the styling!
    VW ID4 definitely worth investigating
    Peugeot 3008 is an impressive car too
    Cupra Formentor is a lovely looking machine
    New Kuga looks good too

    If you are looking for a Jeep, you would want at a minimum 4wd, low gear ratio, off road tyres. Nice to haves air snorkel and winch. Kodiaq doesnt really tick the jeep box.

    Tiguan allspace with the sun roof is very nice,plenty of room and larger boot than the regular Tiguan but maybe that one is big enough boot wise and both very economical

    The skoda kodiaq is a lovely car also


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,525 ✭✭✭ kilns


    or buy a proper Skoda which carries all the same functions but even better, a Superb

    Kodiaq, Tarraco and Tiguan are all pretty much the same mechanically.
    Not a fan of the Tiguan allspace, the extra length makes it look tardy and more like an mpv for me.
    Kodiaq in meteor grey looks great.


  • Registered Users Posts: 50,139 ✭✭✭✭ bazz26


    Seems a bit unusual someone in their 20s with no kids in toe, looking at the likes of a big Kodiaq. You will be paying a premium for alot of empty space and seats that are not going to get used. Surely a regular sized SUV or crossover would do the same job?

    Have a Tiguan with the panoramic roof. Wouldn't have one without as it's a very dark car inside otherwise. Nearly 3 years old and roof is opened regularly enough with no issues. Have the 2.0 TDI 150, which I f*****g hate, but that's mainly because I'm used to more power and hate diesels in general.

    Not sure I'd be bothered with one if it was just myself in my 20s though. A lot more interesting and comfortable cars for less money.



    Any recommendations?

    Cupra formentor looks nice not sure about engine only seen 1.5 and 2 liter petrol would be heavy on juice

    Jaguar F-Pace ? Not sure there very reliable though could be expensive to get parts if need to

    Saw one last week and I have to say its fabulous.
    You are in your 20s and free to buy whatever car you want be it a 2 seater or 8 seater you got to love the car and don't be minding anyone telling you you don't need it because you just have to want it and if you love it just buy it,simple.

    I know of an 85yr old man very healthy that bought himself a 7 seater suv just because he liked it,I thought a great choice because he really liked the car and he only has one passenger.

    If you love the skoda kodiaq or vw tiguan you may buy that otherwise you will have regrets also bear in mind the vw will hold its value better on trade in

    Skoda have got alot better would they not hold there value the same as a Volkswagen would?


  • Registered Users Posts: 72,778 ✭✭✭✭ colm_mcm


    A base model Tiguan Allspace is €9k more than a Kodiaq, so I can guarantee you that it won’t be worth €9k more in 3 years time.

    5 seat Tiguan might have some chance as it’s €5k less than a Kodiaq to buy.

    Amazing what badge snobbery can do, especially in Ireland. here in Switzerland 2nd hand VWs and Skoda hold their value more than BMWs

    Skoda have got a lot better and I really like the skoda kodiaq but vw would hold the value better that's just the way it is.

    I know you are only in your 20s but if you go the skoda route the kodiaq or superb and if you go the vw route either tiguan is great but the skoda karoq I personally don't like the style of it


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,551 ✭✭✭ whippet


    I traded in a 2017 kodiaq last year and I was very surprised at the residuals - very surprised - and happy


  • Registered Users Posts: 101 ✭✭ Luke774


    The jaguar F- Pace looks the business how expensive is parts etc. I would service my own cars and do most small jobs

    Other then SUVs what other cars would you recommend looking at 2liter or above 5 doors

    BMW
    Audi
    Skoda vrs
    ??

    Cheapest 181 Kodiaq on Carzone is €26700
    Cheapest 181 Tiguan Allspace is €28950

    When you take the much higher new price into account, the VW loses a lot more. It’s worth more but you paid more.

    As said, a 5 seat Tiguan is the way to go if you want low depreciation. No good if you need 7 seats though :)

    To be fair not many people do need 7 seats
