ŠKODA's upgraded KAROQ – the medium SUV that runs from the practical to the emotional

Date Added:

ŠKODA announces pricing for the upgraded KAROQ medium SUV, offering over $4,000 of additional standard equipment including a stylish new design, advanced technologies and smart convenience features.

The KAROQ will continue to offer Australian customers leading practicality with the Style from $42,990 drive-away, and an even more emotional driving experience with the Sportline 4x4 from $49,990 drive-away.

In the finest traditions of the Simply Clever brand, only the KAROQ can in the medium SUV segment offer such a broad range of abilities and luxury appointments thanks to the continuance of big-value packages.

The KAROQ Style offers $4,300 in additional value compared with the outgoing version, now offering 18-inch alloy wheels (up from 17s), LED headlights, front parking sensors (in addition to rear), virtual pedal for the power tailgate, power-folding and heated side mirrors, rear dynamic indicators, rear spoiler, extended pedestrian protection (for autonomous emergency braking), driving profile selection, digital radio, wireless phone charging, front and rear map reading lights and luggage nets.

The latter feature even further underscores the unrivalled versatility of the KAROQ Style's VarioFlex rear seating arrangement, which allows for the three-segment rear seat to be individually removed, folded or moved forward or back thanks to the sliding function – allowing the 479L boot to extend to a large SUV-like 1605L.

The KAROQ Sportline 4x4 offers $4,100 in additional value compared with the outgoing version, now featuring full Matrix LED headlights including adaptive high-beam, front parking sensors, virtual pedal, digital radio, wireless charging, extended pedestrian protection (for autonomous emergency braking), rear dynamic indicators, luggage nets and rear spoiler.

Befitting its name, the Sportline 4x4 upgrades from the front-wheel drive Style's 110kW/250Nm 1.4-litre turbo and 8-speed automatic, to a 140kW/320Nm 2.0-litre turbo and 7-speed direct shift gearbox (DSG) for 0-100km/h in 7.3 seconds.

Yet both KAROQs intelligently deliver combined-cycle fuel efficiency of less than 7.0 litres per 100km: from 6.6 l/100km (Style) to 6.9 l/100km (Sportline 4x4).

ŠKODA national sales and planning manager Kieran Merrigan said the KAROQ continues to offer customers "a best-of-all-worlds approach to medium SUV buying."

"With design highlights like VarioFlex in the KAROQ Style, ŠKODA can offer the practical smarts of a larger vehicle in a size that offers greater urban agility and lower weight for enhanced efficiency.

"Or, for those wanting the most emotional and engaging driving experience, no European medium SUV can touch the KAROQ Sportline 4x4 for sporty fun and technology for under $50,000 drive-away."

All new ŠKODAs come with a five year/unlimited kilometre warranty.

This is one European SUV that further delivers multiple neatly packaged servicing options to choose from – including the 'prepaid' service packs OR 'pay as you go' service subscription plans. The popular and fully transferable 7 year service package costs $2,400 – and that price includes the first three services free, plus roadside assistance for the entire 7 year duration.

For maximum flexibility, existing customers can purchase a 'used car' package, or 'top up' an existing 3 or 5 year service plan to the full 7 years.

KAROQ customers can alternatively select their annual mileage in concert with a level of servicing coverage to be provided with a service and maintenance monthly subscription plan best suited to their needs. This includes 'Value', 'Essential' and 'Complete' plans – with roadside assistance and a service loan car. An owner travelling 15,000km per year will pay from $39.50 per month.
