New Skoda Karoq revealed

  • Skoda Karoq SUV

But the Yeti is no longer for this world, as Skoda has banished that nameplate for a new one - the Karoq.

The Skoda Karoq takes its design inspiration from the company's flagship SUV that can be seen with the edgy design theme.

The Czech carmaker is quick to point out that the Karoq is not a replacement for the similarly sized Yeti, but instead a smaller version of its soon-to-be-released seven-seat Kodiaq.

Entry models come with front-wheel drive, but four-wheel drive is available and can be had with an off-road mode.

Seen here in official images for the first time, the Karoq is a larger vehicle than the one it replaces, It's 4,382mm long and 1,841mm wide - figures that are 160mm and nearly 50mm up on the Yeti's dimensions respectively. The new digital instrument panel will be fully customizable. The new offering from the Czech automaker is believed to be the successor of the Yeti SUV. Platforms, infotainment systems and powertrain options, all of which are extremely competitive and state-of-the-art, are being shared across the group's several European brands, including Skoda and VW. There are two petrols - a 1.0-litre three-cylinder unit with 114bhp and 175Nm that emits 117g/km of Carbon dioxide, and a 1.5 four-cylinder producing 148bhp and 250Nm; thanks in part to cylinder deactivation technology, this more potent engine nearly matches the triple's Carbon dioxide emissions, at 119g/km. Capacities with this configuration range from 421 litres if you priorities legroom for all three rear passengers and 588 litres if you elect to maximise boot space, to 1,810 litres with the second row removed entirely.

Some of the defendants are connected to at least six homicides and five attempted homicides in North Carolina. The indictment also alleges illegal activity as far away as the Florida panhandle and the NY prison system.


Furthermore, the Karoq comes loaded with full-LED headlights and LED interior ambient lighting - which is configurable up to 10 colours. Skoda's latest generation infotainment systems have also been confirmed, with a 9.2-inch range-topping version available as an option. It has Skoda's Phonebox as well, which offers inductive wireless charging and couples the smartphone to the roof antenna.

As previously reported, the Karoq will be offered in either front-wheel-drive (FWD) or all-wheel-drive (AWD) guises, while five engine options - two petrol and three diesel - are available overseas.

To sweeten the deal, here's a list of the other tech goodies on the new Karoq which will include Park Assist, Lane Assist and Traffic Jam Assist.

Under that beautifully sculpted bonnet, Skoda will be offering the Karoq with five different engines, two petrol and three diesel. All the powertrains feature turbo-charged direct injection units as well as start-stop technology and brake energy recovery. The most powerful motor that will be offered in the Skoda Karow is the 2.0 TDI that makes 190PS of power and comes with 7-speed DSG and 4×4 drivetrain as standard. There's also the VW Group's new 150-hp 1.5-liter TSI Evo that premiered on the updated Golf with cylinder deactivation technology. The SUV will also come with drive modes such as Normal, Sport, Eco, Individual and Snow (for the 4×4 models).

The Czech automobile manufacturer has already announced that the Karoq will be launched in the global markets by the end of this year.
