The carmaker ŠKODA continues to upgrade its SUV models. The compact KAROQ, ŠKODA’s bestselling SUV, has now been endowed with new technologies and new looks, following in the footsteps of the Czech brand’s largest SUV, the KODIAQ.
“With more than 500,000 units sold, the KAROQ is one of the pillars of ŠKODA’s success. To maintain this trend, the car has been carefully modernised. The updated version has a new design, improved aerodynamics and modern assistance and infotainment systems. I am convinced that with this mix of features we will build on the ŠKODA KAROQ’s success to date,” says ŠKODA CEO Thomas Schäfer.
A new face
The new face of the KAROQ is a visible change at first glance. As with the ŠKODA KODIAQ, this represents an evolutionary shift in ŠKODA’s design language. “The modernised KAROQ now has a more confident look. The wider, hexagonal radiator grille and new front bumper make the front looks more muscular. The new layout of narrower LED headlights gives it a more dynamic look. The dynamic look of the rear is accentuated by the design of the new taillights. And the new roof spoiler visually elongates the car’s silhouette,” says chief designer Oliver Stefani.
