Used test: Nissan Qashqai vs Skoda Karoq verdict
Buy either of these family SUVs at two years old and you'll save yourself almost £10,000, but which is the better all-rounder? We have the answer...
It’s a victory for the Karoq. It’s great to drive, has the best infotainment system and the classier interior. It’s also impressively practical and cheaper to run than the Qashqai. Crucially, it’s also far more reliable, according to our survey.
The Qashqai is not without its charms, being fairly spacious and decent to drive. Buy one and you'd still be happy with it in everyday use, especially if you saved a bit of money and sought one out in a lower trim level, and on smaller wheels. Overall, though, it fails to excel in any department and so isn’t good enough to cut it here with the Karoq.
