The new ŠKODA KAROQ is an SUV with a unique character. Its emotional and dynamic design with numerous crystalline elements demonstrates the brand’s current SUV design language. The long wheelbase (2638 mm) also guarantees plenty of space for passengers and luggage. With the rear seat in the default position, the boot has a capacity of 521 litres – the largest luggage compartment in its class. The ŠKODA KAROQ also features many ‘Simply Clever’ details, such as the virtual pedal, which opens the boot door with a foot swipe beneath the rear bumper. The optional VarioFlex rear seat solution makes the storage volume variable – between 479 and 588 litres. The VarioFlex system consists of three separate rear seats that can be adjusted individually and completely removed; the compact SUV is then transformed into a van with a maximum load volume of 1810 litres.
The ŠKODA KAROQ is the brand’s most digitised vehicle. This is ŠKODA’s first vehicle with a fully customizable digital instrument cluster.

Thanks to the LTE module and WLAN hotspot that each passenger can connect to, everyone in the ŠKODA KAROQ is always online. Five engine variants with a power output of 85 kW (115 hp) to 140 kW (190 hp) are available – including two petrol engines and three diesel engines.
