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 subcompact crossover SUV class is gaining in popularity and the latest entrant, the 2018 Hyundai Kona, has a lot of potential to take the lead. Its exterior style may be somewhat polarizing, but it drives better than the competition. It also delivers a lot for the money and checks all of the boxes that shoppers want in this type of vehicle.
PROS
Optional turbocharged engine provides quick acceleration
Nimble handling makes it enjoyable to drive
Lots of features for your money

CONS
Weak base engine

By: 
edmunds.com

The 2018 Hyundai Kona ranked #1 in Subcompact SUVs. Currently the Hyundai Kona has a score of 8.8 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 14 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Agile handling
Potent available turbo-four engine
Intuitive infotainment system

Cons
Lower maximum cargo capacity than rivals
Uninspiring base engine

By: 
usnews.com

With its quirky styling, the Kona is set to perk up some fun. Choose from a 147-hp 2.0-liter inline-four with a six-speed automatic transmission or a 175-hp turbo 1.6-liter inline-four with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. Front-wheel drive is standard; all-wheel drive is optional with both engines.

Pros
Tight build and rattle-free cabin,
well-tuned dual-clutch automatic transmission.

Cons
Some interior plastics not up to par,
penalty-box rear seat.
