What alternatives should I consider to a used Skoda Karoq estate?
The most obvious alternative is close to home: the Seat Ateca trades some of the Karoq’s comfort and versatility for sharper handling and improved fuel efficiency. It’s a great small SUV, and a little cheaper to buy than the Karoq too.
If you’re after something rather different, try the Peugeot 3008. It’s incredibly economical and comes with a smart, well-built interior that feels more special than most SUVs'.
If the peace of mind that comes with a long warranty is key, however, you might want to look into a Kia Sportage. It’s average to drive and has rather a firm ride, but its seven-year, 100,000-mile warranty is unmatched.
