2017 Skoda Karoq review: Great value versatility

The Skoda Karoq is effectively the replacement for Skoda’s much-loved and very successful Yeti. It’s grown a bit and has lost the individual looks in the transformation from Yeti to Karoq, but it’s also become much more polished, which it needs to be to take on rivals like the Seat Ateca, Nissan Qashqai, Peugeot 3008 and Renault Kadjar.

Verdict 9.0 / 10

The Skoda Karoq does everything you could want of a mid-sized family SUV. It’s good value, spacious, practical, comfortable and precise to drive, and smart to look at. Plus, it’s more versatile than most thanks to rear seats that slide, fold and can be removed altogether. If you’re not bothered about the fairly nondescript looks – there’s no contrast roof and bright colour palette here – then this should be your first choice of family SUV.
