What Car? says...
Have you noticed how some manufacturers are naming their individual models with the same first and last letters, in order to group them into a family? That’s why we’ve got the Skoda Karoq, which sits between the smaller Kamiq and larger Kodiaq in the Czech brand’s SUV line-up.
The Karoq is, in essence, Skoda’s answer to the Nissan Qashqai, Peugeot 3008, Seat Ateca and VW Tiguan. On the outside, it looks every inch the modern Skoda, but under its skin it shares an awful lot of mechanicals with the Ateca and Tiguan – both of which are made by brands that, like Skoda, are part of the VW Group.
