Skoda to reveal new compact SUV
Hot on the wheels of the new Skoda Kodiaq SUV, the brand is introducing a new compact SUV in Stockholm in the middle of May, writes Brian Byrne.
The video above is a teaser for the reveal, outlining Skoda’s design background and how the name Karoq has been derived … again with Alaskan links.
The 4.4m car is completely new and the company claims ‘exceptional’ space inside. There will be new driver assistance systems, LED headlight option, and a digital instrument panel.
The car will launch with five engine variants — two petrol and three diesels — in 1.0, 1.5, 1.6 and 2.0 litres displacements and in power from 115hp-190hp.
Nicely done. Like the Kodiaq, an interesting new push in Skoda’s SUV direction.
