Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

You can play a game of Volkswagen Group MQB platform bingo with a lot of the Karoq's spec. There are five engines in the range, all direct-injection turbocharged units with EU6 emissions compliance, ranging from a three-cylinder 1.0-litre TSI unit with 113bhp to a range-topping 2.0-litre TDI with 187bhp. Four of the five engines offered on the Karoq were not offered on the Yeti. Front-wheel drive and a six-speed manual gearbox are standard, with four-wheel drive and a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox offered with certain engines.
Hidden under the camouflage of the development car we've been granted an early drive in is a look inspired by the larger seven-seat Kodiaq in Skoda's growing range of SUVs

By:

The Yeti is being replaced by an all-new car named the Karoq, a new name which clearly aligns it with the larger Skoda Kodiaq. The Karoq ditches the opinion-dividing proportions and looks of its predecessor, not to mention its relatively cramped interior, being longer and wider.
Most of the interesting design detail focuses on the front. Skoda will offer full LED headlights as an option and the grille has a bold, chunky look. The base of the bumpers and door sills are all clad in black plastic, too. That’s ostensibly to protect the car from bumps and scrapes, but more importantly it creates the optical illusion of the car sitting higher from the ground than it is. The clamshell bonnet has a noticeable bulge running down its centre, as well, which draws your eye to the now-even-larger Skoda badge.
