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

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.

SEAT's first SUV had to be a good one, and thankfully the Ateca has scored a direct hit. More than that, it's combination of style, space, quality, driving enjoyment and value earned it the title of Crossover of the Year 2016 at our New Car Awards.
The Spanish brand's sharp design language ensures that the SEAT Ateca is one of the best looking SUVs of its kind. There's substance underneath, too, with a wide range of punchy and efficient engines and a well-tuned chassis making the Ateca the best in its class on the road.
A lack of kit for the cheapest models and slightly dull interior may deter some, but the impressive space on offer, general air of solidity and availability of four-wheel drive gives the Ateca all it needs to beat the Nissan Qashqai.

The Seat Ateca breaks new ground for Seat, because the Spanish brand has previously built as many SUVs as it has spaceships. But while Seat is undoubtedly very late to the party, it’s drawing on the experience of others and offering keen pricing.
Underneath the sharp bodywork is essentially the same mechanicals that sits beneath the much more expensive Volkswagen Tiguan. True, the Ateca misses out on some of that car’s practical features, such as reclining and sliding rear seats, but it still has a large boot and masses of rear seat space.
We think many people will happily give up the VW’s extra flexibility when they consider that a very well equipped four-wheel-drive Ateca will cost the same as a mid-range two-wheel-drive Tiguan.

The SEAT Ateca is an affordable, practical and desirable SUV that gives buyers a great alternative to the Renault Kadjar and Nissan Qashqai.
SEAT has never had an SUV in its line-up before, but the SEAT Ateca has quickly become one of our favourites, giving potential Renault Kadjar and Nissan Qashqai owners a great alternative.
The Spanish manufacturer hasn’t exactly started from a standstill, as most of you will know the Ateca shares a considerable amount with the Volkswagen Tiguan. But, the SEAT did get a small head start in the UK, going on sale first, costing less and looking rather stylish, too.

Pros
Very well priced
Looks fantastic
Good to drive

Cons
Slightly firm ride
Not a completely flat loading area
Tiny five-inch screen on cheaper models
