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: Scout

Based on SE L trim, Scout adds a few distinctive off-road inspired touches that draw attention to its standard-fit four-wheel drive and underbody protection. You also get an electrically powered tailgate, a panoramic roof, wireless network and special brown upholstery, its 19in wheels don’t do the ride any favours. And because you can only have four-wheel drive with the 2.0 TDI 150 and 190, it’s expensive to buy.

Engine: 2.0 TDI

This 2.0-litre diesel combines strong performance with decent economy, especially if you avoid four-wheel drive. Just remember it’s a fair bit more expensive than our favourite 1.5-litre petrol engine, so you’ll have to do plenty of miles to recoup the cost. Available as a manual or automatic.
