The Skoda Karoq is a top-drawer family SUV, offering comfort and superb practicality for a competitive priceread the full model review
The top trim level adds 19in wheels, a panoramic roof, electrically adjustable front seats with memory, leather upholstery, a 9.2in infotainment system, wireless phone charging, lane assist, blindspot monitoring and an electrically operated tailgate. It’s only available with the more powerful engines, making it quite expensive.
This punchy petrol engine isn’t much thirstier than the 1.0-litre unit but feels more than strong enough to haul the Karoq around. Not only has it got plenty of power, it’s more refined than the diesels. That said, our True MPG fuel economy figure of 36.0mpg for a car fitted with an auto 'box was a little disappointing (and worse than a Seat Ateca 1.4 TSI 150 DSG). But unless you drive to the moon and back every year, this is still your best bet. Available as a manual or automatic.
