Overview

Hot on the heels of the hugely successful Kodiaq, the five seat Karoq is the latest model to join the Skoda SUV line-up and will arrive in Irish showrooms in December.

The entry level Active trim will not be available on Karoq, and instead will start with the usually mid-range Ambition spec, giving it a starting price of €27,715.

Standard features on Ambition include 17 inch alloy wheels, dual zone climate control, parking sensors, a reversing camera and Smartlink+ which incorporates Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The engine line-up will consist of a range of diesels and petrols; a 1.6l TDI and two 2.0l TDIs with power outputs of 150 or 190hp respectively, a 1.0l turbo-charged TSI, and for the first time in a Skoda, a 1.5l TSI featuring fuel-saving cylinder deactivation.

Watch our video above for a sneak preview from the international launch in Sicily last week, and watch out for our full review and test drive when it arrives.
