How reliable are the timing belts on the 2015 Skoda Octavia 1.2 petrol TSI? How often should they be changed? Any issues with timing belt on new 1.0 TSI?

I notice in the detailed UK specs for the Kia Stinger (which otherwise appears like a wonderful car), it says, both for the 2.0-litre and 3.0-litre petrol engines, that the service interval is a mere six months. This seems weird when many new cars with powerful engines have a two-year service interval, at least for the first service. What do you think?

I bought a Ford Kuga in Jan 2015 and have done 127,000km. I was asked to change the timing belt today at a Ford service. I Googled and found out that I can do up to 200,000km or 10 years between timing belt replacements. If that is so I could save money now and do it later. Can you advise? Mine is three years old and I service it regularly, at least every three months, as I am always driving long distances alone.
