UNVEILED: SKODA KAROQ

The Škoda Karoq is a completely new compact SUV from the long-standing Czech brand. The Karoq which is a replacement for the Yeti offers exceptional space, new driver-assistance systems, full LED headlights and – for the first time in a Škoda – a digital instrument panel.

The Skoda Karoq is a sports utility vehicle with character: The emotive and dynamic design with numerous crystalline elements characterizes Skoda’s new SUV design language. The front is characterized in particular by the geometrically shaped headlights with precise contours. From the Ambition trim level upwards, full-LED headlights in a clear glass design are used. A narrow strip of lights running along the bottom edge of the main headlights provides homogeneous indicator and daytime running lights.

The fog lights, which come with full-LED technology and the cornering function, are positioned below the main headlights. The radiator grille, which is framed by a chrome trim, features the trapezoid shape that is typical of Skoda.

The side is characterised by short overhangs at the front and rear, the sloping roofline that is visually extended by a contour in the D-pillar, and the tapered rear. The wheel arches are framed by wide angular trims – a typical design feature for the Skoda SUV.

The width of the body is emphasized at the rear by the horizontal lines. The flat, raked rear lights are divided into two: their outer section is embedded in the sidewall frames, whilst the inner section is in the tailgate. The reflectors sit below the rear sensors on the outer edges of the rear bumper. The lights at the rear include tail lights, brake lights and number plate illumination with LED technology. The tail lights form the Skoda-typical ‘C’ shape.

The compact SUV measures 4,382 mm in length, is 1,841 mm wide, and 1,605 mm high. The increase in size benefits the passengers. The kneeroom is 69 mm and wheelbase is  2,638 mm.

The Karoq is at the top of its segment with innovative connectivity solutions. The infotainment building blocks come from the second generation of the Group’s Modular Infotainment Matrix, offering state-of-the-art functions, interfaces and equipped with capacitive touch displays.

Five engine variants – two petrol and three diesel engines – are on offer. The two petrol engines and two diesels are new in the line-up. The displacement ranges are 1.0, 1.5, 1.6 and 2.0 l; the power range is from 115 PS to 190 PS. All powertrains feature turbo-charged direct injection units as well as start -stop- technology and brake energy recovery..With the exception of the most powerful diesel, all drivetrains can be ordered with a 6-speed manual gearbox or 7-speed DSG. The 2.0 TDI with  190 PS comes as standard with 4×4 drive and 7-speed DSG. The new 1.5 TSI has the special feature of cylinder deactivation.

The Karoq offers a comprehensive range of driver assistance systems. New comfort systems include Park Assist, Lane Assist and Traffic Jam Assist. Blind Spot Detect, Front Assist with predictive pedestrian protection and Emergency Assist serve to increase safety.
