SKODA’s compact SUV is built for every adventure, whether you’re weaving through the urban jungle or the highlands. Its stylish looks coupled with a simple set-up means it’s family friendly, while the raft of technology ensures it has a professional feel. Clever features help you take control and relax while you drive, and it’s powered by a range of highly-praised engines.
Take your pick from four engines, including a four-wheel drive option. The petrol TSI engines come in either 1.0-litre and 1.5-litre variants, the latter of which puts out 147bhp, while the diesel range is slightly larger with TDI units at 1.6-litres and 2.0-litres. Brake energy recovery, start/stop technology and a gear recommendation system help you to save on fuel – they’re fitted with every Karoq. It’s an efficient range, with CO2 emissions as low as 117g/km. You can also expect your insurance to be in group 9E, depending on the engine and trim level you choose.
Designed with families in mind, the Karoq is neat and efficient, as well as supremely comfortable and safe. You have up to 1,810 litres of boot space to fill with luggage, pushchairs and sports gear. When you have lots of luggage to take, you can fold down all three of the seats individually to create the ideal set-up for the journey. There is the option of VarioFlex, which puts a sensor under the rear bumper that you can run your foot underneath to open the boot hands free.
Foldable tables help to keep those in the back entertained, and there are clever storage compartments beneath the seats and in the central console. The driver position is both comfortable and advantageous with a broad road view, and the dashboard is neatly configured to ensure everything you need is close at hand.
To keep you safe and take the stress out of driving, the Karoq comes with Park Assist, Lane Assist and a rear-view camera. They’ll help you navigate into tight spaces safely and keep you on track along the motorway. A number of other systems act as your personal assistant. Wireless charging will keep your phone topped up, and you can sync your iPhone to the touchscreen to access apps.
