    Amongst all the C-segment SUVs, Skoda Karoq has the highest ground clearance, so it should be the last car to bottom-out on uneven roads. It also has the biggest boot in the segment, so it can carry maximum luggage. But as far as cabin space is concerned, the upcoming Tucson should offer the best space in the segment.
