And you thought Yeti was a weird name for a car. This is the 2018 Skoda Karoq, which is essentially a replacement for the old oddball Yeti small SUV.

If you believe Skoda’s marketing campaign, this car was named by the people of Kodiak, Alaska - yeah, the same place the brand drew inspiration from for its larger Kodiaq SUV.

The spiel goes that Skoda asked Kodiakans to come up with the name for the new smaller sibling to the Kodiaq - and apparently, names like 'Chinook', 'Grizz' and 'Icebug' were in the mix. But Karoq was what won out, blending the word Ruq - a tribal name for an arrow, like on the Skoda badge - with Karaaq, an Alaskan tribal name for a car.

Enough about the name. What is the Karoq all about? And is it any good?
