THE NEW ŠKODA KAROQ

November 26, 2021

The new ŠKODA KAROQ will make its debut in a digital media presentation, titled “The Faces of KAROQ”, on 30 November at 10:00 CET.

ŠKODA AUTO has released an official teaser video previewing the updated ŠKODA KAROQ. Four years after its launch, the central model in the Czech car maker’s SUV line-up has received a design and technology upgrade. The KAROQ, which was the brand’s second most popular model after the OCTAVIA in 2020 as well as in the first six months of 2021, will in future look even more distinctive. The redesigned front is characterised by a wider ŠKODA grille and slimmed-down headlights. In addition, the full LED Matrix headlights’ reconfigured LED modules create a signature four-eyed look. In the updated rear section, the redesigned tail lights are particularly eye-catching.

DESIGN SKETCHES

FRONTREAR

One of the two design sketches shows the freshened ŠKODA KAROQ’s new, even more distinctive front. The ŠKODA grille has increased in width and now features impressive double slats as well as a new hexagonal design, with a wide air intake underneath. The headlights are overall more slender than in the predecessor version and extend all the way to the grille. Their dynamic appearance is underscored by redesigned daytime running lights that are now composed of two separate elements each. Underneath is a second lighting unit for the fog lights or, in the top variant, a separate LED module. This headlight configuration enables a characteristic four-eyed driving lights look after dark.

The second sketch previews the KAROQ’s redesigned rear. In addition to a longer rear spoiler and a visually updated rear apron with a black diffuser, the tail lights now sport a new, sharply drawn design as well. Like the headlights, they have been slimmed down and emphasise the vehicle’s width. In signature ŠKODA style, crystalline structures add a special visual effect to the tail lights, which will retain their characteristic C-shaped graphic.
