The Skoda Karoq is a compact crossover SUV (C-segment in Europe) by the Czech brand Škoda and manufactured by the Volkswagen Group. The Karoq is Skoda’s mid-size SUV, and is halfway between the Kamiq and the Kodiaq. It was created in 2017 as an alternative SUV to replace the Skoda Yeti. The vehicle is based on the VAG Group’s MQB platform, so its development is shared with other equivalent vehicles from the conglomerate, such as the Seat Ateca.
Its competitors include the Renault Kadjar, Nissan Qashqai, Peugeot 3008, Toyota RAV4 and Kia XCeed, among others. There is only one generation of this SUV.
