Motoring review site Honest John has named the Skoda Kodiaq its 2018 Car of the Year – adding another trophy to the SUV’s collection of more than 10 top industry titles since it was launched last March.
Unlike other awards, the Honest John honours are chosen by the 2.3 million annual visitors to the HonestJohn.co.uk website, rather than a panel of journalists and experts. The most popular reviews – judged by the number of page visits – are the winners. This provides a unique picture of the cars that generate the most interest and excitement among real buyers and enthusiasts.
Skoda’s first seven-seater SUV went on sale last March and has proved a huge hit with both buyers and the motoring media. The Kodiaq swept to victory in Honest John’s SUV category – and generated more page hits and visits than any other car during the judging period.

Commenting on the Kodiaq’s appeal to readers, Honest John Managing Editor Dan Powell said: “Comfortable, spacious and well-equipped, the Kodiaq is everything an SUV should be. Its popularity has grown steadily with the readers of HonestJohn.co.uk over the past 12 months and it’s easy to see why our audience hold the Kodiaq in such high regard. The Skoda Kodiaq is a brilliant family SUV and a worthy winner of the Honest John Car of the Year 2018.”
