Review

The Skoda Karoq is a top-drawer family SUV with a flexible seating, a big boot and plenty of space inside for passengers. It’s also a pleasure to drive, thanks to its comfortable ride, great visibility and well made interior. If you’re after something sportier then have a look at the Seat Ateca, but the Karoq is the better all rounder.

Trim: SE Technology

This trim level is no longer on sale. 

Engine: 1.5 TSI

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.
