I'm upgrading from a Hyundai i40 to a Skoda Kodiaq 1.4 TSI petrol. Any thoughts on the petrol version of the Skoda? I'm worried there might not be enough power. Only do 5k a year.

Aidan: No issues whatsoever with power from the 1.4-litre TSi but the DSG version also provides a power upgrade from 125bhp to 150bhp so if you can afford it, go for the automatic.

Eddie: No worries. It's nice and sharp.
