Skoda Karoq summary

In the year 2020, the 5-seater SUV was offered in India as a CBU (Completely Built Up) with a single model priced at Rs 24.99 lakh (ex-showroom). It competed with the Volkswagen T-Roc, Hyundai Tucson and the Jeep Compass. The Škoda Karoq, however, being a CBU, was slightly more expensive than its main competitors.

When the Škoda Karoq was first introduced in the country, the automaker imported 1,000 cars. The Indian market reacted positively to the Karoq. The initial batch of SUVs sold out just a few months after they were released.

However, due to various global circumstances, Škoda has temporarily deleted the Karoq SUV from its official website in conjunction with the debut of the Kushaq. Later, Hollis revealed that Karoq has no future in India. As a result, the model's first chapter in India came to a close with the delivery of the first 1000 units as a CBU.

The Škoda Karoq is powered by a 1.5 litre (1498cc) turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine that churns our 150 hp of max power and 250 Nm of peak torque.

The Karoq is offered only in a petrol fuel type.

The engine on the Karoq comes mated to a 7-speed DSG automatic transmission.

Skoda Karoq PRO’s & CON’s

  • Things We Like
  • Things we don’t like

The Karoq looks properly premium on the outside and manages to stand out amongst its competitors.

The build quality of the Karoq is top-notch. Paint quality, fit and finish, everything is excellent.

Upscale interiors featuring soft-touch surfaces throughout and subtle chrome and metal accents

The seats of the Karoq, especially at the front, are incredibly supportive and comfortable. The cushioning is spot on, thigh and lumbar support is adequate, and boasts 12-way powered adjustability. Even on longer trips, you won't feel fatigued.

The Karoq has a very wide cabin, even more than the space in Innova Crysta and the Tiguan All. This helps in seating three people comfortably at the rear. Also, the large glass area, including the panoramic sunroof, and dual-tone interiors, makes the cabin feel a lot airier.

The Karoq has a very sweet ride and handling balance. Thanks to the hint of stiffness in the suspension setup, it feels incredibly stable at highway speeds, and just glides over bad roads at decent speeds.

The Karoq boasts a large 520-litre boot space, which can further be increased to 1,630 litres by folding the rear seats. The cabin is also fairly practical, with lots of convenient storage spaces.

The Active cylinder tech (ACT) helps enhance the mileage of the vehicle.

One of the safest in the class with loads of safety features, including 9 airbags

Being imported as a CBU (Completely Built Unit), the Karoq is more expensive than its competition.

The Karoq does not have a diesel engine on offer.

The Karoq is offered only in a single variant. No manual variant is available.

Some key features are missing: wireless phone charger, 360-degree parking camera, electric tailgate, drive modes, and ventilated seats.

Falls behind in terms of price-to-size ratio

Škoda could have given the Karoq a slightly more powerful engine, especially considering the rivals.

Lacks the athleticism of the T-Roc

Skoda Karoq EXPERT REVIEWS

Though representing a compact SUV, the Karoq is praised for its great blend of nimble performance and sure-footed handling. The soothing feature-packed interior, the beautiful attention to detail, robust build quality, and the secure feeling that comes with the vast list of safety equipment immediately soothe your senses. On the other hand, the exorbitant price is the single substantial barrier that overshadows this otherwise enticing product, effectively eliminating it from the value for money equation.

The Karoq simply demolishes its competition with its sheer premiumness and refined ride. It feels incredibly comfortable and luxurious on the inside, without compromising on practicality.

Key features on the Karoq include adaptive full-LED automatic headlamps, keyless entry and go, panoramic sunroof, digital instrument cluster, 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, Electrically adjustable driver's seat with memory function, dual zone climate control, paddle shifters, auto-dimming ORVMs and IRVMs, and ambient interior lighting.

In terms of driving experience, the engine is smooth and quick, with a 0-100 time of less than 9 seconds and a top speed of more than 200 kmph. DSG is also quite swift and smooth. However, the Karoq isn't a vehicle that's meant to be pushed too rough; it's more suited to the relaxed driver. However, its German sibling, the T-Roc, offers crisper performance and athletic driving dynamics, thanks to its stiffer suspension setup and less weight. As far as fuel efficiency goes, the Karoq is rated at almost 14.49 km/l.

Karoq is a well-rounded car; it drives well, looks nice, has a roomy cabin, features sumptuous interiors, is extremely safe, and comes with a plethora of amenities and advanced technology. However, if size is a major area of concern, or you need a rough and tough SUV that can go off-road, better look for some other options in the segment.

The Karoq comes loaded with safety features. Notable ones include 9 airbags, ABS with EBD, ESC, tyre pressure monitoring system, driver fatigue monitor, rearview camera, and front and rear parking sensors.
