Elec handbrake is a piece of cake, don’t worry about it. I’m new to Karoqs but have used leckie handbrakes on LRs for 14 years, just use it like you would a manual lever. Pull up to apply, push down to switch off. Simples.

Unless I’m wrong, I’ve only owned a Karoq for 31 hours.

The only warning is don't pull the lekky brake on when moving unless travelling at high speed.
Sounds a*rse about face, but if you pull it up before the car has come to a complete halt the retardation is very severe. (it works on all 4 wheels) anything in the back that is loose will fly forward and if your seat belt is undone you will run a real risk of headbutting the windscreen.
At high speed in an emergency the weight of the car will ensure a rapid but controlled halt see here.
