More mid-size SUV frolics this month as we see how Skoda’s new seven-seat Kodiaq stacks up against the Land Rover Discovery Sport

dose of character converged to make it an instant hit. Then late in 2016 along came the Kodiaq, the company’s entry in the next class up. Can it pull off the same trick? Market leader is the snootier Discovery Sport, so the latest Skoda has a job on its hands.
