Skoda Previews The New Karoq Ahead Of Its Debut Next Week

Share

The new Skoda Karoq will make its official public debut later this month in Stockholm, with the SUV due to arrive in dealerships towards the end of the year.

The radiator grille is framed by a chrome strip and shares th trapezoidal cross section style grille, synonymous with the Skdoa brand. It's the typical "C" shaped taillights and they look good on the auto. The replacement of the Yeti is more or less a baby Kodiaq and that's why it has a striking character and features crystalline elements.

The compact SUV is 4,382 mm long, 1,841 mm wide and 1,605 mm high. Take 'em out: 64 - two more than the outgoing Yeti, but still substantially less than the RAV4, Ford Escape/Kuga, or the class-leading Honda CR-V, which can swallow 76 cubic feet with the rear seats folded (but still in place). This system also increases the maximum boot size to 1,810-litres. There are also VarioFlex rear seats that give the flexibility of converting boot space from 479 litres to 588 litres.

An optional VarioFlex rear seating arrangement will allow for individual positioning, folding, and even removal of each of the rear seats.

Inside, there's a lot that's changed. There's LED ambient lighting as well and the driver can control the brightness of the illumination, which can be set to one of ten different colours.

The all-new Skoda Karoq will be using two petrol and three diesel engine options.

The Kodiaq's little brother will be equipped with five new engines, four of which will be new (including a 1.5 TSI with cylinder deactivation), and will be available as a Seat Ateca (4m38 in length, 1m84 in width, 1m60 in height and 2m63 in wheelbase) For powers ranging from 115 to 190 hp. The Karoq is an instrumental part of that plan as Skoda is looking to establish its SUV portfolio.

Skoda India hasn't talked about the Karoq making its way to India.
