Re: 1.0 TSI OR 2.0 TDI

I have had a 1.0 TSI since November. Plenty powerful enough for me with acceptable acceleration. Probably wouldn’t be the best choice if you planned to do a lot of rapid overtaking on single carriageways but I prefer a nice sedate ride! Mine is a manual and the gear box is pretty smooth but not quit...

Re: 1.6 TDI

Agree with all that Kodiaq has said. I’d go for petrol. I have the 1.0 SE Nav Plus and have been very pleased with it so far. Has more power than I need (but I am no boy racer), is smooth, spacious and comfortable. If you need more power you would need to get a 1.5 petrol but according to hundreds o...

Re: Pull of kangaroo on 1 litre petrol karoq

I have had a 1litre Karoq since November and have had no “kangarooing” problems in 1200 miles so far. The only slight complaint is that changing from 1st to 2nd gear is not always as smooth as it was in my Yeti 1.2. Apart from that I am really pleased with the car and pleasantly surprised with the p...

Re: Finally taken the plunge!

Picked the car up yesterday, less than 4 weeks after ordering. Have only driven about 50 miles so far but it has been very comfortable, smooth and easy to drive with loads of room. Doesn’t stand out from the crowd like the Yeti but seems handle just as well so no regrets on changing at the moment. 4...

Finally taken the plunge!

Although I have been very happy with my Yeti it is now approaching 3yrs old and will be due an MOT and the first service I will have to pay for. This coupled with the fact that it will soon need at least 2 new tyres has led to me ordering a Karoq. Have gone for a 1.0 SE Nav Plus in Business Grey (sa...

Re: Business Grey Karoq

Hi Markus,
I have a Business Grey Yeti (photo attached). I like the colour and have had lots of favourable comments from friends and neighbours. Reckon it will also look good on a Karoq.

Just joined

Hi all, just saying hello as a satisfied Yeti owner planning ahead for when my PCP deal expires. Looking forward to lots of useful info. So far have only been able to see Edition models at my local dealer (Wings Peterborough) & was wondering how well the rear seats folded in the SE model which doesn...
