Do Brits ever take their car off-road?

Off-roading – you probably know what it is, but chances are you wouldn’t dare do it yourself, for fear of mudding, denting, or doing much worse to your vehicle!

Skoda off-roading

Few Brits would have taken their car off-road, with many not sure where to go to do it. You will find it is farmers or people with some land and a quad bike who get to off-road to their hearts content in the UK. If you aren’t one of those, your only chance at off-roading will likely be a 4x4 experience day. But what about if you want more than just a day out to enjoy the fun that is off-roading? If you live near one of the best off-road trails in the UK, and want to embrace it with your own 4x4, the new Skoda Kodiaq Scout is the car for you!

The Skoda Kodiaq Scout

The Kodiaq Scout is Skoda’s off-road friendly version of its Kodiaq SUV, but has essentially been created to look and do what a Land Rover does. The off-road style of the car assists drivers to ensure off-roading and on-roading is both safe and fun. 

The car comes with a range of features that allow you to make the most of the off-road experience.

These include:

  • Shockabsorbers

  • Reducedthrottle response

  • Primeddifferential lock for quicker reactions

  • Asmall slip in the ABS system to cope with off-road terrains

  • Hillhold to prevent rolling on hill starts

  • Descent control functions

  • Drivingmode selector with a snow specific set up

Not only is this new Kodiaq fitted with these specialised features, it also has front and rear bumpers that prevent denting, so are perfect for on-and off-roading adventures. As well as this, the cars 19-inch alloy wheels allow you to cover more track and be less likely to get stuck in a ditch, whether it’s in a field or a beaten down road. Skoda also have a cherry on top offer when you buy the Kodiaq with a ‘rough road package’, whereby you can add engine and underbody guards to the vehicle which ensures protection from the elements. With the Skoda Kodiaq Scout, you will be one of the few Brits to enjoy off-roading, yet be able to turn up to any event in a stylish and modern car, fitted with all the latest technology.
