2018 Skoda Karoq Could Be All The SUV You’ll Ever Need

If you value practicality, tech, comfort and an overall relaxing drive, the Skoda Karoq should tick all those boxes for you – and then some.

During this in-depth review of the Karoq, Carwow went as far as to conclude that, if you’re in the market for a compact SUV, you should just go right ahead and buy the Karoq, skipping the shortlist phase.

In the cabin, there’s plenty of leg and headroom both front and rear, plenty of storage spaces and a well-laid out cockpit with good quality materials throughout. The reviewer was particularly impressed by this range-topping Edition model and its 9″ touchscreen display, plus all the other bells and whistles.

On the road, the Karoq is easy to drive thanks to its light steering, although the suspension is a bit more firm than the one on a VW Tiguan. As for the engines, you’re advised to skip over the 1.0-liter petrol, as well as the 1.6-liter and 2.0-liter diesels, and go for the 1.5-liter 150 PS turbocharged petrol, which is surprisingly economical and by no means a slouch.

On the downside, if you want all-wheel drive on your Karoq, you can only get it if you opt for the 2.0-liter diesel – which, by the way, is the only one that also comes with a fully independent rear suspension.

In any case, you can learn all the details about Skoda’s latest SUV by watching the video that follows.

    Of late, Skodas have mostly been the most sensible cars. Reliable with solid build, spacious, smart looking, and cheaper than equivalent VWs. If VW let them, I’m sure they can outsell their sister cars
