I had an opportunity to drive my bear in the snowstorm that traffic jamed whole Slovenia. The highway to Grosuplje was blocked and the only way home was to find the alternative roads. How was the journey? Check this video!

      I have less than 7 L when driving to work. On long distances with radar cruise control also less than 6 L. But it always depends on your leg and your driving mode/mood. I am very satisfied because my Grand Scenic had 8+ L.

      @Roman, Waiting for Kodiak Sportline for test with petrol engine at Sweden. Looks like the consumption of the fuel will be much higher then you have.
      How about surrounding noise while you are driving, do you hear it while driving or everything fine and no noises from the street/highway?
      I was thinking about Audi A6 Allroad, it is quite conservative car but no noise while driving it, very good assembled.

      Roman Verhovsek and Gadgets  For me, XC90, Velar or Q7 is not much better than kodiaq.....to the test I refer...(moose test, etc...) for me a little bit more noisy....is nothing. 20.000$ more for a little bit less noisy?? its crazy.

    • Roman Verhovsek and His Gadgets
      Roman Verhovsek and His Gadgets In reply to Maxim Vitkovsky

      The noise is similar as the one in Renault Grand Scenic. Usually I play music loudly if I am alone in the car so I am not bothered with the noise. BUT premium cars will always have better sound isolation. Of course, that comes with the price. If I would be willing to spend more for a car, I would maybe end up with XC90 or Velar or Q7, but Kodiaq as a new car has great price/performance ratio. And remember, it is still Skoda.

      Roman, thanks for very detailed review of tires....My bear was delivered 3 weeks ago and I'm in big search for winter tires but in 17" because winter has come and supplies are empty here in Croatia. I'm considering Conti TS830P and Michelin's A5, also there are many positive reviews for CrossClimate plus and they look very capable.

      about 1 year ago
    • Roman Verhovsek and His Gadgets
      Roman Verhovsek and His Gadgets In reply to djirkozoid28

      I am satisfied with them, I am not a crazy driver so I don't need extra super tyres :) They are very stable and the price was perfect for 18". I am also very satisifed with driving in those normal winter days that I had missed last few years :) I am also very impressed with DCC that makes my ride comfortable regardless to the model of tyres and when we had the first snowfall (on the 13th Nov 2017) the 4x4 drive worked flawlessly even with the summer tyres!!! Of course, I was driving carefully but not so slow as with my previous 2WD car. The bear didn't even slip once . Regarding the noise: I usually use Canton Sound System with sound level above 50% so the tyre noise doesn't bother me. For an average driver, Nokian tyres are great. I would like to mention that Kodiaq supports strange tyre dimensions where 50% of all tested tyres in car magazines don't even exist for the bear. And different models means different characteristics. But it is hard to say how good are those tyres in a long-term. RIght now, I would purchase them again.

      Thank you very much! :) Actually if I would have to choose again, I would consider to take 1.4 TSI 4x4 DSG. But I would take a ride first to see how it really drives. Kodiaq and ACC are making me driving within speed limitations so I am not picky with horse powers anymore..

      I hate the fact that when the front radar sensor is covered with snow, the ACC does not work as a simple cruise control. this is so frustrating when driving on the highway when snowing (even if it is a light snow).

      If I'm not mistaken, you have Skoda Connect.
      Are routes that you calculate not automatically adjusted when there is a traffic jam?
      It seems to me that Google could have chosen the alternative route you chose for yourself.

      Yes and no. The navi detects the traffic jams and redirects you.... but only on the main roads and the highways. Even Google measures the traffic density on those roads only. But all those roads were jammed and the highway was even closed. I used those small roads that are actually out-of-the-radar.... driving zig-zag :)

      It works for my car (web and mobile). Sometimes there is a problem when logging in. In that case, don't sign off! And don't remove your car from Skoda Connect! On the forums some owners had problems when re-registering their cars. Just kil your mobile app and try again. If the problem is still there, try again later.

      During the New year holidays I couldn't get location of my car on Skoda Connect for whole 6 days. I already had shot my new video about it but I have never published it because it went back online. And now everything is OK.... for now.

      Hi Roman, thank you for the video, what a beautiful snowy landscape. :)
      I‘m glad to hear that the Kodiaq performs well in show, but I am a bit disappointed that the sensor cuts out even in light snow. I do blame Skoda for that, because in other vehicles (mine for example) the front radar works just fine even in heavy snowfall. Luckily it doesn’t snow often in my part of the world so it won’t be much of an issue for me. ;)

      My friend owns Audi SQ7 and he has the same problem with snow and front radar.
      I drive my own Kodiaq (2.0 TSI Style with most additions) and I noticed that ACC sometimes works when it snows and sometimes doesn't. It isn't perfect for sure (but still - it is only "assistant").

      Unfortunately not. As it was said in another comment, using heated sensors would probably solve this issue. I wonder if it is possible to add heating to the sensor „cover“.. .maybe a peltier—based foil or something.

      Hello Roman, I watched most of your Kodiaq videos. I'm trying to understand, are you happy with your car or if you have choice you going to swap it for other vehicle? For example - your video in Skoda dealer showroom, you just try to express your disappointment from Kodiak or I'm wrong? Thank you.

      Yes, I am very happy with my car :) And I would pick it again.

      It is not a perfect car but much better than competition (X-Trail, Koleos, RAV4, Outlander,...) and cheaper than similar-equiped premium SUVs (X3, Q5, GLC). A great price/performance package but some parts of the car could use better materials (I blame VW for that).

      Otherwise I am not a person that buys something and preaches how everything else sucks :) Every car has its own pros and cons.

      Roman Verhovsek and His Gadgets In reply to chris dt

      I can't answer your question. Now I wonder if the radar is actually located near camera behind windshield?

      But I 've found this article: https://readwrite.com/2016/12/19/how-self-driving-cars-handle-snow-tl4/ .

      'Radar technology senses objects by emitting electromagnetic waves. It is not affected by snow or rain as much as LiDAR is because it does not involve light reflection. Radar can still detect moving vehicles, buildings and pedestrians in inclement weather which will help automated cars drive safely. However, many manufacturers are placing the radar sensors behind the windshield so that the wipers can protect them from snow or rain. If the sensors are outside the vehicle, they may become iced over and will no longer work.'
