Used Skoda Karoq (17-present)

Used Skoda Karoq 2017-present review

Alternatives

Review continues below...

What alternatives should I consider to a used Skoda Karoq estate?

The most obvious alternative is close to home: the Seat Ateca shares much of the Karoq's mechanical package but trades some 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.

Verdict

It isn’t the most exciting car in the world, but the Karoq is a deeply sensible, practical and comfortable SUV that should make a fine family car.

  • Spacious and practical interior
  • Comfortable ride
  • Punchy engines
  • A little bland to drive
  • Not as efficient as some
  • VarioFlex seats optional on some models
