The ŠKODA KAROQ offers plenty of power in all circumstances: on the motorway, nipping in and out of urban traffic, pulling a trailer, or driving off-road. You can take your pick of the 1.0 and 1.5 l TSI petrol engines or the 1.6 or 2.0 TDI diesel engines. The power ranges from 85 to 140 kW and is transmitted to the front or all wheels. Two types of transmission are available: a 6-speed manual or 7-speed DSG gearbox.
Immediately after sitting down, you will notice the higher sitting position, offering a great view of the situation around you. A perfect overview is provided by the freely programmable Digital Instrument Panel which offers a choice of five display layouts. The DCC Adaptive Chassis and Driving Mode Select allow you to match the car’s characteristics to your mood. The progressive steering, delivering improved steering control and adapting to the angle of the steering wheel, is a special feature.
The safety of you and your family is our priority, as evidenced by our 5-star EURO NCAP test result. Occupants are protected by up to 9 airbags that work in tandem with seat belts. The Isofix and Top Tether systems are used to improve the protection of children in infant carriers. If an accident is unavoidable, passengers are prepared for impact by Crew Protect Assist, which closes the windows and activates belt pretensioning. ESC, ABS and many other systems also keep an eye on the car when it is on the go.
Inching forward a bit at a time, passing pedestrians, lane switching, etc. The ŠKODA KAROQ’s job is to make this easier for you. The radar located in the radiator grille monitors the front area so that Front Assist can alert you or stop the car in the event of an imminent collision with another vehicle or a person. On congested roads, Traffic Jam Assist can even inch the car forward automatically. And on multi-carriageways, Blind Spot Detect will alert you if there’s another car in your blind spot.
When you buy a ŠKODA KAROQ, all your parking worries are over. Park Assist 3.0 can park in and exit from parallel spots itself, and enter perpendicular spots forwards or backwards – you just work the accelerator and the brake. You’ll also appreciate the Rear View Camera when parking. Rear Traffic Alert will help you exit a line of cars as it detects whether another car is approaching and alerts you in good time. Manoeuvre Assist makes sure you don’t hit any obstacles when manoeuvring the car in tight spaces.
When you’re on the motorway, systems are ready to help by taking over some of the driving for you. Adaptive Cruise Control drives the car at a set speed, slows down when it closes the gap with the car ahead, and accelerates again when the road is open. Lane Assist uses a camera to read road markings and warns if the car starts to veer out of lane. Hundreds of miles on the motorway will always test the limits of your stamina. Driver Alert ensures you don’t take risks – it alerts you if you need to take a break.
Maintain optimal lighting and steering assistance when you move away from city and motorway lights. Auto Light Assist automatically turns the full beam on and off depending on the current lighting conditions and traffic situation. Travel Assist detects traffic signs and shows them on the car’s display so you can keep track of the situation. If drivers find themselves in medical difficulty, Emergency Assist can stop the vehicle itself and trigger the warning lights.
