Skoda’s compact SUV se update. We talk about Skoda Karoq, which arrived in 2017 and it was time for the relevant renewal to continue competing in the best-selling segment in Spain. And Skoda already warms up engines of this new delivery with two sketches that show their new aesthetic.
And it is that there is very little left for us to know the new Skoda Karoq: I know will present this month, specifically on November 30. However, the Czech firm already advances together with this primer teaser that the SUV will be updated both in terms of design and technological equipment.
In short, the one that has already established itself as one of the best-selling Skoda cars in Spain catches up: in 2020 it was its most registered model in our market, with 4,826 units, and so far in 2021 it is crowned third with 4,519 models marketed and on the heels of the Fabia (4,564 units).
New face and more technology, but with the same engines
In this new chapter of Skoda Karoq, the aesthetic changes are essentially led by the redesign of the front. Change the front grill, which becomes wider, and although it is still configured in double slats, it shows off the hexagonal design that we already find in the latest Skoda releases: for example in the new Octavia and Fabia.
In addition, the headlights are also different, being more stylized than those of the outgoing model, as well as the configuration of the daytime optics or the LED fog lights that, although they are still below the main headlight, present a new design.
And the set is completed with a redefined lower air intake which, although it remains divided into two, will offer a more modern and somewhat sportier design, with new moldings being present to frame it.
For his part in the rear the rear optics also change, which, although they will continue to be C-shaped, are more elongated. They are also new the aileron, which will be more generous, and the rear diffuser, more restrained and minimizing the black plastic surfaces.
For now Skoda does not give more details of what we can expect in terms of technological developments. At the end of last year, this SUV introduced new driving assistance systems such as Area View (360º vision technology with four exterior cameras) or Trailer Assist, to facilitate maneuvering with a trailer. Some engines were also adjusted.
Thus, as regards the mechanical range, which is limited to thermal options, no changes are expected. The Karoq family is divided into options TSI gasoline between 110 and 190 hp, as well as diesel TDI between 115 and 150 hp. It also has manual or automatic DSG gearboxes and front and integral wheel drive variants.
However, we will have to wait for Skoda to reveal the ingredients of the new Skoda Karoq, which comes shortly after the update of one of its first cousins: the SEAT Ateca, with which it shares a platform, and whose changes have also been aesthetic and technological equipment, apart from the fact that some mechanics have been eliminated.
