The Skoda Karoq Scout has debuted at the 2018 Paris Motor Show. Here are the live images of the compact SUV's off-road variant from the show.
The Skoda Karoq Scout features plastic elements that are aimed to protect the body all around, both when travelling in the city and on the beaten path. Further emphasising the rugged appearance are the 18-inch polished Braga alloy wheels. The Crater 19-inch alloy wheels in metallic anthracite are available as an option. All-wheel drive and Rough-Road package come as standard, making the SUV well-equipped for off-road use.
The front bumper’s underbody protection, the rear diffuser including the exhaust system’s tailpipes, the wing mirror housings and the roof rails all come in silver colour. The side sills combine silver and black. Inside, the Skoda Karoq Scout gets a multifunction leather steering wheel while a virtual cockpit is available as an option. The optional SmartLink+ allows Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, MirrorLink and SmartGate integration.
The Skoda Karoq Scout comes equipped with the KESSY keyless entry system as standard. Other features include retractable roll-up cover attachable to the tailgate (only in combination with Varioflex) and an adjustable false boot floor.
There are three engine options, one petrol and two diesel. The 1.5 TSI petrol engine, tuned to deliver 150 PS of power, is the entry-level variant and comes with a 7-speed DSG and a petrol particulate filter as standard. The two diesel engines, on the other hand, come with an SCR catalytic converter with AdBlue injection as well as a diesel particulate filter. The 2.0 TDI engine is tuned to deliver 150 PS of power and 340 Nm of peak torque. The power is sent to the wheels via a manual 6-speed manual transmission or a 7-speed DSG dual-clutch transmission. The 2.0 TDI engine, with a power output of 190 PS, sends power to the wheels via a 7-speed DSG as standard.
Skoda is yet to announce the launch timeline and prices of the Karoq Scout.
