You have to admire Skoda. In a relatively short period of time they have taken the marque from a brand associated with retired males of a certain type to one which now happily entices family focused mothers and fathers to its excellent range epitomised by the new Skoda Karoq SUV. Czech car-maker Skoda bills the Koraq as a self assured compact with a sense of adventure and we agree as its pleasing frame is good on the eye, confident and perky looking. There are two engines to choose from, a 1.5-litre petrol with 150 PS which comes as a six-speed manual or automatic and a 1.6 litre diesel with 115 PS, also in manual or auto. The Kodaq has good ride height (though not over the top like some SUV's) and it feels spacious with thin windscreen pillars and large side windows. There are 4 trims, the SE, the SE Nav Plus, the SE Technology and the range-topping SE L. An 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system is standard, and it's exceptionally good, as is ios and Android connectivity. The SE L trim has an interesting feature in that it comes with a subscription based online connection, so you can get live traffic, weather and news reports plus an SOS button for emergency assistance, pinpointing your location for emergency services. The Skoda Karoq comes with a lot of trim choices and optional extras so why not speak with one of our helpful and knowledgeable account managers.
