spacious interior,
leading-edge tech features.

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:

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
