Skoda Karoq to start at £20,875  21 | 09 | 2017

    SKODA HAS CONFIRMED its new Karoq SUV — the replacement for the Yeti — will start from £20,875 when it goes on-sale at Scottish dealerships on October 3. (Related: Facelifted Citigo from £8635)

    The entry-level 13bhp 1.0-litre TSI turbo petrol engine, in SE spec, includes front assist, LED rear lights, dual-zone climate control, 17in alloys, pedestrian monitor, and driver fatigue sensor as standard.

    SE L models start from £23,165 and add more kit, including 18in Braga alloys, satnav with 8in touchscreen display, Smartlink+, keyless entry and start/stop, full LED headlights with adaptive front light system, heated front seats, and Alcantara upholstery. SE L buyers also benefit from a colour multifunction trip computer, rear view camera and front and rear parking sensors as standard.


    Staring at £27,110, the range-topping Edition model includes a panoramic sunroof, leather, an electrically-operated tailgate, a more advanced 9.2in touchscreen and 19in Crater alloys.

    At launch, buyers will have the choice from two petrol and two diesel engines. Both the 1.0-litre and 1.5TSI petrols get a six-speed manual transmission as standard. A seven-speed DSG gearbox is available as an option.

    The DSG ‘box is also available in the 113bhp 1.6-litre and 148bhp 2.0-litre diesels. The latter comes with the option of four-wheel drive.


    Notably larger than the Yeti, the Karoq is 4382mm long and 1841mm wide, an increase of 160mm and almost 50mm respectively than the model it replaces.

    The Karoq also benefits from a longer wheelbase, up by 60mm to 2638mm if you choose a front-wheel-drive edition (2630mm for four-wheel-drive models). The wheelbase figures mirror exactly those of of front- and four-wheel-drive versions of the Seat Ateca: both cars are produced on the VW Group’s MQB chassis architecture.
