Bild reports that the Skoda Karoq will share the MQB platform and components with the SEAT Ateca, but feature the exterior styling of Skoda Kodiaq.

Details on the Karoq are currently scarce, but if it is going to share the engine lineup with the SEAT Ateca, expect options such as the 1.0 TSI 115PS turbo three-cylinder, 1.4 EcoTSI 150PS turbo four-cylinder, 1.6 TDI 115PS turbodiesel four-cylinder and 2.0 TDI 150PS turbodiesel four-cylinder. Transmission options are likely to include a 6-speed manual and 7-speed DSG.
