Review

The Skoda 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 (as long as you avoid the 19in alloy wheels) and great visibility – and it has a well made interior. If you’re after something sportier then have a look at the Seat Ateca, but the Karoq is the best all-round family SUV in its price bracket.

get the best price

This trim is aimed at company car drivers. You certainly get a lot of kit for the money, but you won't find any attractive finance deals if you're buying privately.

This punchy petrol engine isn’t much thirstier than the 1.0 TSI 115 but feels a lot stronger. Not only has it got plenty of power, it’s more refined than the diesels. Available as a manual or automatic.
