    Skoda Karoq - Coming 2018



    It looks like there might just be another addition to the Skoda lineup coming down under next year. The five seat and little brother of the larger seven seat Kodiaq it slips into the Tiguan space.

    Is this something people are looking at? Personally, the Kodiaq's seven seats appeal to me, but this is definitely interesting looking.

    Definitely looks more like a gen1 Tiguan equivalent in terms of size/wheelbase.

    They want to take the person responsible for new headlight design out side and flog them with a dead fish. Whats with all new model front ends having to be so "Fuggly" ?

    I like the look better than new Tiguan and can see myself replacing our 2010 Tig with the 140TDI if it come to AU.

    That would more likely be a Kodiaq - the Karoq doesn't reach Oz until mid next year.

    Skoda Karoq to start at $30,000 - motoring.com.au

    Think I’ll be giving this a close look when it lands. I think it will be a good upgrade for my wife’s old Ford Focus. Will look smart in the garage next to my Tiguan.

    Several have landed in Australia for design testing. Should be available in May rather than predicted June.

    RVCS approvals are listed here: Road Vehicle Descriptor (RVD1) - Skoda Karoq

    At this stage it looks like the 3 cylinder 1.0l 85TSI in manual and 1.5l 110TSI in 7 speed DSG are the only engine/transmission options - no diesel on the list.
