Fancy yourself a car enthusiast? While being an enthusiastic car owner and a good driver are both part of your overall street cred, a lot of it comes down to being able to talk the torque. And where many of us can come undone when showing off our automotive prowess is butchering the pronunciation of brand or model names as badly as Kim from Kath & Kim used to pronounce 'chardonnay' (she said 'kar-don-aye', for the record)...
The 2019 Skoda Karoq has been a welcome addition to our long-term fleet, but it's now time to say goodbye.
We've been impressed with the Karoq's urban manners, and it's proven to be a happy highway tourer, too.
Those of you not wanting a hardcore performance sedan would do well to take a close look at the Skoda Octavia 110TSI Sport, which blends sedan and hatch practicality with sharp pricing.
Despite the odd jerky launch from the lights, the Skoda Karoq is a fine city/suburb runabout.
If you tick the right boxes, the Skoda Karoq comes with a technology suite to rival luxury brands.
Despite its relatively compact dimensions the Karoq offers a stack of room for anything you might want to throw at it.
The larger Kodiaq is a tough act to follow, but we've got the Karoq for a few months to see if great things can still come in smaller packages.
The 2020 Skoda Kodiaq RS is the fastest seven-seat SUV around the Nürburgring, which isn't really that relevant for the family commute. Its blend of practicality and value for money certainly is, though.
The Skoda Octavia 110TSI Wagon could be the perfect antidote for the armada of SUVs on our roads.
The Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo is an exercise in sporty design with sprightly performance. It's an unorthodox, affordable tier-two European option well worth considering.
