Skoda Kodiaq wins carsales 2020 award

For the 2020 carsales Best Family SUV award, nine seven-seat SUVs currently available in the Australian market were assessed on a wide range of criteria that is deemed important to family buyers.

The nine SUVs that were nominated for the Best Family SUV award for 2020 were: 

  • Holden Acadia, 
  • Hyundai Santa Fe, 
  • Kia Sorento, 
  • Mazda CX-8 Mazda CX-9, 
  • Nissan Pathfinder, 
  • Skoda Kodiaq, 
  • Toyota Kluger, 
  • and VW Tiguan Allspace.

Each of these nine vehicles were assessed in categories that included:

  • cabin and cargo space; 
  • child safety and accommodation; 
  • connectivity, 
  • infotainment and technology; 
  • driveability and performance; 
  • cost of ownership factors; 
  • and design.

With such a huge range of seven assessment criterias, customers expectations, and the price comparison of best-selling variants that were tested, there were many different winners for each of the categories – a weighted average ranking was used to score.

This complex process determined which of the seven-seat SUV is the best overall for a modern family. It is important to remember that in the end, the top spot in the 2020 carsales Best Family SUV award will always be reserved for the vehicle that performs best against the scoreboard overall – the one that amasses the highest number of points across the field.

This year’s winner was the Skoda Kodiaq Sportline 132TSI 4×4. The 2020 Kodiaq has a recommended retail price of $52,490, an automatic transition, 2.0L 4-Cylinder engine, fuel consumption of 7.6 (L/100km) and power of 132kW.

This tremendous five-seater SUV trumped in both the value and styling sections of the test. It ranked second in the technology and accommodation categories and third in the on-road driving performance and child safety and accommodation fields.

In terms of both affordability and ownership costs, the Skoda Kodiaq which was miles ahead of its peers with a wide margin. When the costs of fuel and tyres of the Kodiaq were measured over three years, this model was voted as the family buyer’s best value for money SUV in Australia.

Whether a new SUV is aesthetically pleasing or not plays a large part when you are looking for a new car. After much thought by the judges of the award, the Skoda Kodiaq came up on top in this category. It was deemed the most attractive SUV in this group. It is also the vehicle that has been deemed the least likely to age over the years.

Overall, Skoda’s biggest SUV tallied an impressive score of 89.9 per cent to take out carsales’ Best Family SUV Award for 2020.

It is the second model from Skoda to successfully win a 2020 carsales award so far. The Skoda Fabia won the Best First Car award in December, with the Kodiaq taking out the award for many of the same, clever reasons.

You could say that Skoda is riding high. The Skoda Kodiaq is the rightful winner in the SUV segment for families.
