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: 1.6 TDI

It’s more flexible than the entry-level petrol, but still struggles with heavy loads – especially on the motorway. That said, it is the cheapest to run by a reasonable margin. Available as a manual or automatic.
