IMO Karoq is much uglier than the Ateca, looks like a car for grandfathers :D From what I hear it has a softer ride at the expense of lack of driving pleasure compared to the Ateca that behaves more like a regular hatchback.

Another (market variation?) difference that's important to me is that in Bulgaria there's no petrol AWD version of Karoq which is a deal breaker to me. I hate diesel cars and I am convinced they will soon be a thing from the past (petrols too, but they'll be around for a bit longer than diesels).

I quite like the WhatCar? summary - it starts off by saying "So it’s a Czech rather than Catalan revolution..."

Catalan! Are both cars not built side-by-side in Kvasiny, Czech Republic? :lol:

For me this is quite obvious, the egg.
No chicken without an egg.

Having driven Skoda Superbs for the last 10 years it is now time to downsize and I looked at the Karoq, but found the ride too soft but more important, the “extras” that are currently in my Superb would have added almost £4k to the list price🤔

Having read reviews on the Ateca I took a couple of test drives ( different models) and loved the handling. When I checked the specifications the Excelence Lux had everything my current Superb has and some! and the price, (using Carwow) was extremely competitive with a basic Karoq.
That sealed it for me and I ordered my Excelence Lux in Samoa Orange at the end of March and will be picking it up 1st Sept so just under 3 weeks to go😀
I’ll let you know how I get on with my 1st non-Skoda shortly.

An egg and a chicken lying in bed and the eggs having a fag...
Answers that question.
