Used Skoda Karoq for sale
The Skoda Karoq is a mid-sized family SUV that features the usual robust, comfortable and practical characteristics of the Czech brand. Introduced in 2017 to replace the popular Yeti, the Karoq is smaller than the Kodiaq SUV but larger than family hatchbacks such as the Scala and Octavia.
The continuing popularity of family SUVs means that many automotive manufacturers have entered this fierce market. The Karoq does enough to make it a strong contender thanks to a wide range of benefits, such as:
- Various engine configurations
- A good list of available kit
- A comfortable, yet fun, driving experience
- Practical interior spaces
Discover the benefits of the Skoda Karoq in more detail below.
Engines and Driving Experience
With the Karoq, there are a number of engines to choose from that suit a wide variety of needs. Petrol engines come as a 1.0-litre 115bhp, 1.5-litre 150bhp, or 2.0-litre 190bhp variation. All are suitable for travelling around town and can comfortably complete long motorway journeys. But the smaller the engine, the harder you have to work it, especially when carrying multiple passengers or heavier luggage.
Two variants of diesel engines are also on offer. The choice is between a 1.6-litre block with 115bhp or a 2.0-litre with 150bhp. These possess better fuel economy figures than the petrol so are more suited to those who regularly travel long distances.
Skodas have become known for a comfortable driving experience and the Karoq is no different. However, this family SUV is fairly agile and quite fun to drive as well.
Practicality and Running Costs
The boot offers plenty of room for the family's luggage, possessing 521 litres with the seats in place. Folding them down sees this increase to a huge 1,630 litres which is ideal if you need the extra space for larger bits of cargo.
Head and legroom are also good, adults can comfortably sit in the rear without their head brushing the roof of the car. The spacious interior also makes it easy to access the ISOFIX mounting points in the rear of the vehicle for easy installation of child seats.
The running costs are also reasonable, insurance starts at group 10 (out of 50) for the small 1.0-litre petrol engine, rising up to group 24 if you opt for the larger engine specifications. All Evans Halshaw dealerships are well-equipped to take care of any servicing or maintenance requirements.
Interior, Technology and Safety
An ergonomic and solid interior design is present within the cabin space, with all controls being within reach of the driver. The seats are comfortable, and can be adjusted to suit differing needs. This includes the rear bench thanks to VarioFlex adjustment allowing alterations to passenger legroom.
All specifications of Karoq get a good selection of equipment as standard, including Smartlink phone connectivity, cruise control and parking sensors. But opting for a higher specification sees the introduction of fancier tools such as an Amundsen navigation system and parking cameras, increasing the premium feel of the vehicle.
You can also be confident when it comes to your family's safety. The full five-star Euro NCAP safety rating has been awarded and a range of features are on offer, such as:
- Blind spot detect
- Lane assist
- Traffic jam assist
- Rear traffic alert
Is the Skoda Karoq right for me?
The Karoq proves to be a great option if you're in the market for a used family SUV as it's good value for money, comfortable and highly practical.
If you're after something that has more of an engaging driving experience the Ford Kuga may be worth a look. When it comes to the exterior, there are more stylish alternatives on offer such as the Peugeot 3008 or Renault Kadjar.
But Skoda's offering shouldn't be overlooked as it is still a great all round SUV that can compete with its rivals.
