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

There’s no stripped-down bargain-basement version of the Karoq, so the range starts with well-equipped SE models. These get 17in alloy wheels, adjustable lumbar support, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, electric front and rear windows, dual-zone climate control, cruise control, rear parking sensors, auto lights and wipers, an 8.0in touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and 60/40 split-folding rear seats. Add the super-practical VarioFlex seats and the SE is pretty much all you need.

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.
