I reckon the tyres on yours are a bit stickier than mine... ;) Nice colour though.

Speaking of which, is anyone else finding that the Karoq scrabbles for grip on even fairly gentle launches, especially if the road is damp.

Have fun,

Yep, scrabbles for grip in sport mode but not normal mode so far. Pirelli p7 tyres on ours

My is fitted with Bridgestone Turanzas. They feel OK when driving but even on a gentle launch they scrabble a bit. Add a bit of damp and a heavier right foot (I almost never use sport mode) and it is anyone's guess when the car will actually move. Those fronts are going to have to go but the question is what to replace them with. I put Michelin Cross Climates on the Yeti and they were outstanding, good grip under all conditions, good ride and low noise levels; sadly the Cross Climates are not available in the right size for the Karoq.

Have fun,

Interesting. I rate the P7's so far based on a couple of thousand miles of mixed driving including 900 mile round trip to Scotland

Uh oh - not liking the undertone of poor grip.

I have a Q3 Quattro and drive with a stupidly heavy right foot during take off - think I may be in for a surprise 😧😧
