Order books open for all-new Skoda Karoq

Skoda’s all-new Karoq SUV is available to order now from UK dealers, replacing the popular Yeti in what is one of the most competitive sectors of the market.

The Karoq comes in three trim levels: the entry-level SE, starting from £20,875, the mid-range SE L, from £23,165 and the top-spec Edition, priced from £27,110. 

Standard features fitted across the range include alloy wheels, privacy glass, LED rear lights, dual-zone climate control, front assist, pedestrian monitor and driver fatigue sensor, while the range-topping Edition trim adds a panoramic sunroof, metallic paint, leather upholstery, a 9.2-inch satnav touchscreen with gesture control, an electrically-operated boot and LED ambient lighting, as well as a host of safety and driver assistance systems. 

Sitting alongside the Kodiaq, its larger SUV sibling, the Karoq promises exceptional practicality thanks to its Varioflex seating system (standard on SE L and Edition models, optional on SE) which allows owners to adapt the rear of the car to meet their exact needs. The system consists of three separate rear seats that can be individually adjusted or completely removed to create a maximum load volume of 1,810 litres.

Karoq customers can choose from four engine options – two TSI petrol units with outputs of 115PS and 150 PS and two TDI diesels, also with power outputs of 115PS and 150PS. All four are available with a 7-speed DSG transmission as an option, with the most powerful diesel model – the 2.0 TDI 150PS, also available with four-wheel drive.

First deliveries of the all-new Skoda Karoq are set to begin in January 2018.
