Hot on the heels of the Kodiaq, Škoda has revealed more details about its Yeti replacement the Karoq.
The compact crossover will arrive in showrooms at the end of the year for 181 deliveries. The new car seats five. New technologies include a digital information display and a new 1.5 TSI petrol engine are featured for the first time in a Škoda. There will be no low specification entry version from launch, instead it will be a level 2 trim. Ambition and Style versions will be gobbled up by hungry buyers.
Cathal Kealey, PR and Sponsorship Manager at Škoda Ireland, said: “Across the range we are seeing more demand for higher specified models. For example, half of all Kodiaq sales are for the most highly specified Style versions, with only 2% of our customers selecting the entry Active model! We took this on board when deciding on the best approach for the introduction of the Karoq to the Irish market and believe that by focusing on the higher spec models only, we will be better able to meet our customer’s needs. In fact, we plan to expand the Karoq range further in 2019 with the launch of the SportLine and luxury Laurin & Klement derivatives to further meet customer expectations.”
The Karoq will be unveiled to the public at the Frankfurt International Motor Show in September. Detailed price and specification details are expected to be announced in mid-October.
