Actual costs and depreciation: Skoda Karoq 1.5 TSI Style

The Skoda offers plenty of freedom of movement, it’s easy to get by, the overall visibility is good and its versatility is almost limitless. Or can you think of an SUV where the rear seats can be folded or removed? No problem if you order the Varioflex Seating System (610€). At the same time, the outer seats can be moved longitudinally. back corner? Worker. Storage space also benefits from this. Depending on the position, the volume varies from 479 to 588 liters. If the seats are removed, the 4.38-meter Skoda can accommodate 1,810 liters. However, those who will be driving larger passengers often prefer to stay in the classic, comfortable (full-loaded) rear seat. Due to the Varioflex concept, the backrests are particularly narrow. The front seats, trimmed in nappa leather, are disguised with more lateral support and are among the best here.

A choice of options such as networking, a 220V socket, or a tablet stand in the back is also excellent. Three-zone air conditioning and new LED headlights. Despite the update, nothing has changed in the cockpit with its digital instruments. Why. The console under the oversized touch screen with rotary controls and large buttons plus a massive automatic selector lever underneath may look relatively old-fashioned, but its conventional operation is easy. One of the most important buttons, part of the Performance package (830 euros) with adaptive dampers and sensitive step-down steering, located in the lower left in front of the gearshift lever, bears the emblem of a small car. Here the driver can choose to force a boisterous driving behavior on their Karoq – or enjoy the slight undulations and the comfort of the relatively soft suspension in the Comfort Program. The classic compact car will still be more comfortable. What about fuel and maintenance costs?

Our test consumption

Skoda gives 1.5 TSI Style to Karoq Standard WLTP consumption is 6.4 liters super. It shy away from this value in everyday life. We set an average consumption of 7.6 liters, which causes a fuel cost of 15.20 euros per 100 km. Skoda consumed 5.8 liters in the eco-lap, while it consumed 7.6 liters on the passenger road. If the Skoda was transported in a sporty way, then the consumption increased to 9.5 liters. Fuel costs are calculated using the daily updated fuel price on our partner portal (08.06.2022 / Super: € 2.00 / liter).

This is how it is tested

The car and sport engine depreciation test consists of three different depreciation cycles. The so-called “passenger consumption” accounts for 70 per cent. This is a trip from home to work, and it averages 21 kilometers. A particularly economical eco-roll, the length of which is about 275 kilometers, is included in the rating by 15 percent. The remaining 15 percent is calculated on the lap of the sporty driver. The length is about the same as the economy lap, but the track involves a greater proportion of the highway and therefore higher speeds on average. The basis for calculating fuel costs is always the price displayed on the “More tanks” portal on the day the article was created.

Monthly maintenance costs include maintenance, wear parts costs and vehicle taxes based on assumed annual mileage of 15,000 and 30,000 km without loss of value. Calculation is based on trial depreciation, three-year retention period, no-claims SF12 liability category and comprehensive insurance with Allianz including garage parking deductions and restrictions on certain drivers (not under 21). At Allianz, SF12 offers a discount rate of 34 percent for liability and 28 percent for comprehensive insurance.


In test car and sport consumption, the €34,540 TSI Style Skoda Karoq 1.5 TSI Style ended up with 150 hp with an average value of 7.6 super-liters per 100 km. This means that the fuel cost for this distance is 15.20 euros. Monthly maintenance costs are €315 (15,000 km per year) or €591 (30,000 km per year).
