Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Audi SQ5 is redesigned for 2018. Highlights include a new body structure, updated styling, a more powerful V6 engine, and new tech and driver-assistance features.The 2018 Audi SQ5 comes in either Premium Plus or Prestige trims. This means every SQ5 comes very well-equipped. But there are still plenty of upgrades to be had in terms of luxury, technology and performance.

PROS
All-new chassis should improve ride and handling
Increased torque for even livelier performance
Major upgrades to driving and infotainment technology
Luxurious but restrained interior design

CONS
Reduced cargo space behind rear seats

By:

The SQ5 strikes a careful balance between sporty and comfortable, making a strong showing in a tough class.The SQ5 enters a new generation this year, with top-to-bottom changes that include an all-new 354-hp turbocharged V-6 engine in place of last year’s supercharged V-6, an all-new chassis, standard adaptive dampers, and available air springs. Updated interior packaging means there’s a little more space for both passengers and cargo than in previous SQ5s, and exterior design tweaks including a revised front grille and a character line running the length of the car serve as differentiators between new and not-so-new models.

Pros
Comfortable ride,
surprisingly fuel efficient,
abundance of standard interior features.

Cons
Disappointing real-world cargo capacity,
ho-hum exterior design,
top competitors have better dynamics.

Skoda’s smallest SUV is a comfortable, class-leading family car.

PROS
Very comfortable
Seriously practical
Generous standard kit
Finance offers are very competitive

CONS
Not as sharp to drive as some rivals
1.0-litre petrol engine struggles on motorways
Lack of super-low-emissions engine
Looks very similar to larger Kodiaq

By: 
parkers.co.uk

The Karoq is an accomplished crossover that will slot effortlessly into family life. It’s practical, comfortable, and packed with clever touches inside and out.

Pros
Roomy interior
Generously equipped
Cheaper than a Tiguan

Cons
Not as engaging to drive as rivals
DSG gearbox isn't the best
Less characterful than its predecessor, the Yeti

By: 
carkeys.co.uk

The Skoda Karoq is a spacious family car with a big boot. It’s easy to drive and comfortable – so long as you avoid the big wheels – but Edition models are expensive

Pros
Very practical
Solid build quality
Comfortable with smaller wheels

Cons
Big wheels amplify bumps
The 115hp petrol’s underpowered
Top-of-the-range model is expensive
