Skoda Karoq

(2018 - present)

The Skoda Karoq is a medium-sized SUV/crossover, which was launched in late 2017 as a replacement for the previous Skoda Yeti model. It shares its platform with several other models in the Volkswagen group, such as the VW Tiguan, SEAT Ateca and Audi Q3.

The Karoq has received generally good to very good reviews from the UK media, with particular praise for its practicality and value for money. The only real criticisms have been that the Karoq is rather bland and characterless.
