8. SKODA KAROQ
THE Karoq is Skoda’s replacement for the Yeti, and while it doesn’t turn heads in quite the same way, the overall package is more complete. Our favourite SE L spec comes with Varioflex movable rear seats and an eight-inch touchscreen with sat-nav, Android Auto and Apple Carplay, but doesn’t break the bank.
It’s solid and smart inside, too. Choose a top-spec diesel and you also get four-wheel drive, but for us the 1.5 TSI petrol is the sweet spot in the range. Price range: £22,190-£35,135 Our pick: 1.5 TSI SE L (£24,515) Engine: 1.5-litre 4cyl petrol, 148bhp Transmission: 6-spd man, front-wheel drive Top speed: 126mph Economy: 52.3mpg CO2: 123g/km
