The Skoda Karoq will go on sale in European markets in H2 2017. Its range could gain a sporty RS variant and a frugal plug-in hybrid variant in the future.

The Skoda Karoq is the successor to the Skoda Yeti that was introduced in 2009. With a body that is 4,382 mm long, 1,841 mm wide and 1,605 mm tall, the Karoq is 60 mm longer, 48 mm wider and 86 mm lower than the model it replaces. It has a wheelbase of 2,638 mm (FWD)/2,630 mm (AWD). There’s a maximum load space of 1,630 in the SUV, which the buyers can increase to 1,810 litres by availing a grade equipped with the VarioFlex system that consists of three separate and individually adjustable and removable seats.

The Skoda Karoq range consists of two petrol and three diesel models. 85 kW (115 PS) 1.0-litre TSI and 110 kW (150 PS) 1.5-litre TSI are the available petrol engines, both paired to either a 6-speed manual transmission or the 7-speed DSG transmission. Then there are the 85 kW (115 PS) 1.6-litre TDI and 110 kW (150 PS) 2.0-litre TDI diesel engines, also available with 6-speed manual and the 7-speed DSG transmission choices. The range-topping model is powered by a 140 kW (190 PS) 2.0-litre TDI diesel engine that sends power the wheels via the 7-speed DSG transmission. This model does get an all-wheel drive system.

The Skoda Karoq is the first Skoda equipped with a fully digital instrument panel in the Czech brand. The driver can select from Classic, Digital, Info-Profile and Reduced layouts for this unit. Other features worth taking a note of are full-LED headlights, LED fog lights, 19-inch alloy wheels, LED tail lights and brake lights, 9.2-inch Columbus infotainment system with 64 GB storage, navigation, DVD/CD drive and gesture control and Skoda Phonebox for wireless charging and enhanced cellular connectivity.

A slew of advanced safety and driver assistance features are also offered in the Seat Ateca‘s mechanical cousin, including Adaptive Cruise Control, Blind Spot Detect and Rear Traffic Alert, City Emergency Brake with Predictive Pedestrian Protection, Lane Assist, Driver Alert and Traffic Sign Recognition.

The Skoda Karoq will go on sale in first markets in the second half of the year. Skoda has said that it sees the potential for a Skoda Karoq RS because its customers are demanding RS SUVs, but a final decision on that is pending. Besides this souped-up RS variant, which could sport a 300 PS 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine as expected in the Seat Ateca CUPRA, a plug-in hybrid variant also is under consideration. These developments were revealed to the Czech publication by Christian Strube, Member of the Board of Management for Technical Development, Skoda Auto.

Reports on the Indian web today claim that the Karoq is India-bound.
