With the new Škoda Karoq Scout, the Czech car manufacturer will be presenting an even more robust variant of the popular compact SUV series in October at the Paris Motor Show 2018.
As with all Škoda Scout models, the Karoq Scout also comes with four-wheel drive as standard in addition to sporting a powerful off-road look.
Just as the Octavia Scout and the Kodiaq Scout, the latest addition to the Scout family offers four-wheel drive as standard. In addition, the powerful off-road design emphasises the model’s optimised off-road potential. With its rough terrain package, the Škoda Karoq Scout is fully prepared for demanding trips where tarmac roads end.
As the only variant of the compact SUV available exclusively with all-wheel drive, Škoda offers three efficient and environmentally friendly engines for the Karoq Scout. In addition to a 1.5 TSI petrol engine with 110 kW (150 hp) in combination with a 7-speed DSG, two diesel engines are also available: The 2.0 TDI with 110 kW (150 hp) comes with a manual 6-speed gearbox as standard; a 7-speed DSG is available as an option. In the most powerful Škoda Karoq Scout, the 2.0 TDI delivers 140 kW (190 hp) and is coupled with a 7-speed DSG as standard.
With its chrome and silver-coloured bodywork elements, striking wheel arch linings and anthracite, polished 18-inch ‘Braga’ alloy wheels, the Škoda Karoq Scout sports a robust appearance. As an option, Škoda also offers anthracite 19-inch ‘Crater’ alloy wheels.
Drivers can individually configure the Škoda Karoq Scout’s Virtual Cockpit according to their needs. The driving mode selection offers an off-road setting. Thanks to an LTE module and Wi-Fi hotspot, passengers in the Škoda Karoq are ‘always online’.
The optional electric boot lid with tip-to-close function opens and closes at the push of a button or by pulling gently on the open lid; on request, the virtual pedal under the rear bumper allows the fifth door to be opened with a simple foot motion.
