Skoda’s new Kodiaq will cost £21,495 when it arrives in the UK in the spring.
The order books for the Czech brand’s first large SUV will open in November, but first deliveries will not be made until April 2017.
Power will come from one of five engines: three petrol engines and two diesel units.
The petrol range comprises two 1.4-litre turbocharged engines and a 2.0-litre turbo. Power outputs range from 123bhp to 178bhp. More power can be had from the top-of-the-range 187bhp 2.0-litre diesel, which is supplemented by a less potent 2.0-litre with 148bhp.
Depending on which trim level they specify, buyers will then be able to mate their chosen engine to a six-speed manual gearbox, a six-speed automatic or a seven-speed automatic. Four-wheel drive will also be available for some variants.
Customers will be able to choose from four different equipment levels, dubbed S, SE, SE L and Edition. The three more modest trim levels are already seen across the Skoda range, but the top-of-the-line Edition trim is a newcomer.
Entry-level S models get LED daytime running lights, 17-inch alloy wheels, a touchscreen infotainment system with DAB radio and SmartLink phone connectivity, but just one engine is available: the basic 1.4-litre, 123bhp petrol engine.
Upgrading to the SE model will cost £1,450, but it does add plenty of equipment and a range of engines. As standard, the SE gets 18-inch alloys, cruise control and rear parking sensors, as well as an eight-inch touchscreen and dual-zone climate control. Spending an extra £1,000 will add a third row of seats, turning it into a seven-seater.
The princely sum of £28,595, meanwhile, buys the SE L. With Alcantara upholstery, satellite navigation, 19-inch alloys and a powered tailgate.
At the top of the range, though, is the £30,695 Edition. The 19-inch alloys, leather seats, metallic paint and safety assistance package have been added to entice buyers.
