Meet the ŠKODA Kodiaq’s little brother, the Karoq originating from the Alutiiq language. The Karoq replaces the Yeti with a longer, wider and refreshing new exterior. Bold and dynamic the Karoq is set to offer exceptional space whilst remaining a compact SUV.
We will keep you updated as more announcements are made about the all-new SUV including the release date and pricing details.
Little is known about all of the Karoq’s features but ŠKODA have announced new driver assistance systems, full LED headlights and for the first time in a ŠKODA, a digital instrument panel.
The bold and chunky grille accentuates the clamshell bonnet as well as the black clad bumpers and sills creating the illusion of the car sitting higher from the ground. Measuring 4,382mm long and a wheelbase of 58mm enabling a larger interior with ergonomic front seats for extra comfort on long journeys.
There is also plenty of space for passengers in the back with generous leg and headroom. ŠKODA also offer its VarioFlex seating arrangement so folding seats down is done with ease. The Karoq is also claiming to have the largest boot capacity in its segment, all 521 litres. Fold down the split rear seats and this will increase to a gigantic 1,630 litres.
The Karoq is also the first ŠKODA model to offer a fully digital instrument display, the 12.3 inch screen is also accompanied with a 9.2 inch infotainment system offering gesture control just by waving your hand!
On or off-road the Karoq offers controlled handling that are further optimised due to the driver aids; Hill Descent Control is just one example that maximises control on different terrain. Engines and other performance features are yet to be released.
The ŠKODA Karoq is also one of the safest compact SUVs on the road after being awarded with the Euro NCAP five-star rating. The Karoq is one of the safest compact SUVs around after its five-star assessment rating by the independent European New Car Assessment Program (Euro NCAP). It’s now the second ŠKODA vehicle to receive a five-star rating in the Euro NCAP Test 2017 after the ŠKODA Kodiaq.
