The novelty is offered in two trim levels - Ambition and Style - worth 1 million 499 thousand rubles and 1 million 673 thousand rubles, respectively, the press service of the Czech brand informed.

Skoda Karoq is available with a 1.4 TSI / 150 hp engine in combination with an automatic 8-speed gearbox. Basic Active, a 1.6 MPI engine with manual and 6-speed automatic transmission, as well as a 1.4 TSI engine with four-wheel drive and a DSG gearbox will be available later.

According to Yevgeny Kuvaldin, the director of Skoda's Wagner Group of Companies, Karoq will expand the brand’s audience; especially it will be interesting for young couples who often choose compact city crossovers.

Also, the novelty will return the departed followers of Yeti model and will attract a female audience, especially in blue and green body colors, which have successfully established themselves in the Kodiaq model.

According to the estimates of the commercial director of Avtomir Group of Companies, Vitaly Groshenkov, with a sales volume of 100 thousand Skoda cars, the share of Karoq in the model mix should be from 20 to 25%. And with the appearance of the “proven” naturally-aspirated 1.6 engine in the arsenal of model, which will be available with a 6-speed automatic transmission, as well as “mechanics”, the expected Karoq sales volume can grow up to 30%.
