The Skoda Karoq is one of the most anticipated cars of the year and things were looking good for the manufacturer when they opened bookings in March 2020. Karoq deliveries were slated to begin earlier this month but due to the lockdown restrictions, it was put on hold. In today’s virtual launch, Skoda Karoq’s pricing and more details were revealed. It costs Rs 24.99 lakh (ex-showroom).

The Skoda Karoq’s styling is much like its larger sibling; the Kodiaq. Prominent design elements include the signature Skoda radiator grille, LED lighting, fog lamps with cornering function, 17-inch dual-tone alloy wheels, panoramic sunroof and chrome design highlights.

The Skoda Karoq draws power from a BS6-compliant, 1.5-litre TSI turbo-petrol engine that is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic DSG (Direct Shift Gearbox). The engine dishes out 150 hp and a peak torque of 250 Nm. The Karoq is equipped with a long list of creature comforts, safety features and infotainment technology that makes it a formidable rival for cars including the Hyundai Creta, the Mahindra XUV500, and the Kia Seltos.

In terms of performance, Skoda claim that the Karoq can achieve 0-100 km/h in nine seconds and then push on for a top speed of up to 202 km/h. These figures do not come at the cost of fuel-efficiency because according to the Worldwide-harmonized Light-vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP), the Skoda Karoq returns an impressive 14.49 km/litre.

Would gape at fast cars. Still does but now has a chance to drive some of them. Hates driving in traffic but makes up for with a spot of off-roading or the occasional track outing. Insta: @motoknight
