The Karoq is a top-drawer family SUV with clever seating options, a big boot and plenty of space inside for passengers. It’s also a pleasure to drive, thanks to its comfortable ride and great visibility – and it has a well made interior. However, Skoda is not planning to produce a hybrid Karoq, so if you want a family SUV with a low company car tax rate, we’d recommend you take a look at the Kia Sportage.

SE Drive is fantastic if you’re on a budget. It gets 17in alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control, automatic lights and wipers, privacy glass, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, cruise control, rear parking sensors and an 8.0in infotainment screen with wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto. Every Karoq will also feature a digital instrument cluster as standard from later in 2022. If they’re anything like the pre-facelifted Karoq’s digital instruments, you’ll find that they’re no easier to read than the standard analogue dials, but they do show a good spread of extra information.

The Skoda Karoq's entry-level 1.0 TSI 110 petrol engine has surprisingly decent low-rev shove, so it's fine if you spend most of your time in town. However, the similarly priced Kia Sportage comes with a much more powerful 1.6-litre engine and is a better proposition if you live in a hilly area or plan to do lots of motorway miles.
