Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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

By: 
carwow.co.uk

The 2018 BMW M3 Is a sport sedan icon that offers track-ready performance and relatively comfortable seating for four, but it is losing its lead to a group of hungry contenders.

Pros
Superlative performance
Four (relatively) useful seats
Menacing looks
Available carbon ceramic brakes are great...

Cons
...but very expensive
Everything costs more, unless you like white and black cloth
Not fuel efficient
A somewhat digital feel

By: 
thecarconnection.com

What we really love about the M3, though, is that it retains its civility in spite of the performance upgrades. The ride quality remains comfortable thanks to adaptive dampers, the seats are supportive yet comfortable enough for long road trips, and the back seat and trunk are spacious. While there are higher-performing competitors, and more luxurious ones, few blend both traits with the fluidity of the 2018 BMW M3.

PROS
Agile handling without a penalizing ride quality
Upscale, well-equipped interior with room for four adults
Powerful brakes

CONS
Steering is less lively than in competitors
Other sport sedans sound better, go faster

By: 
edmunds.com

"The BMW M3 is a legendary name among supersaloons, but while the latest version is good, its rivals have caught up"

PROS
Practical four-door body
Aggressive looks
Fun to drive

CONS
Pricey to buy and run
No longer sounds as exciting
Some rivals are better to drive
