The Skoda Karoq is one of the most exciting Skoda cars at Auto Expo 2020. Check out all the details about the car here.
Czech automaker Skoda has unveiled its new Karoq SUV at the 2020 Auto Expo. The SUV debuted the Skoda Vision IN, Skoda Octavia vRS, among other vehicles at the Expo. Based on the MQB A0 IN platform that also underpins the T-Roc, the new Karoq is set to go on sale in later, possibly in April 2020.
As far as the exterior goes, the all-new Skoda Karoq stands in line with all new-age Skoda cars that feature the signature grille and slim headlights setup. In fact, the Karoq looks much like a smaller version of the Kodiaq with some similar character lines and detailing. The Skoda Karoq does not have a butch-looking design that flaunts other modern SUVs in India but it doesn’t make the SUV less daunting. The large multi-spoke alloy wheels raise the car’s confidence quotient. We are sure that the all-new Skoda Karoq will garner a greater band of fan-followers over its predecessor Yeti.
The mid-size SUV by Skoda measures 4.3-metre in length, almost as large as the other cars in its segment. The Karoq will be brought to India as a full report, specifically via the CBU route with the company taking advantages of the import rules to bring in a limited number of niche vehicles sans homologation.
Like the exterior, the interior of the Karoq gets a clean design, a well-executed dash and high quality. Soft-touch materials are in generous use and we are sure that the features and packages are impressive as well.
The Skoda Karoq will be powered by a 1.5-litre TSI turbocharged petrol engine that churns out 150 HP of power and 250 Nm of torque. Power is sent to the front wheels through 7-speed DSG automatic option. Diesel engine option is given a miss on the new vehicle. The Karoq is said to the clock to the triple-digit speeds in just nine seconds and has the maximum speed of 202 kmph.
