from $39,990

Meet the New Karoq

The new ŠKODA Karoq is designed around what matters to you, whether you need to pop to the gym or explore the great outdoors for the weekend.

It’s a spacious mid-sized SUV with class-leading technology. Powerful design, turbocharged engines, state-of-the-art assistance systems and innovative connectivity solutions make the Karoq your perfect partner for all of lifes little adventures.

The Karoq is our newest model and is now available across New Zealand. The Karoq has already won numerous European awards including 2018’s Best Family SUV from UK’s respected What Car magazine, as well as ‘Overall Best New Design for 2018’ from Germany’s leading car publication, ‘Auto Motor und Sport’.

Striking design

The confident expression of the Karoq is enhanced by sharply cut headlamps and fog lamps, which are located at the height of the grille confirming the car’s outdoor character. With regards to functionality the top-end solution offers LED headlamps with LED daytime running lights and AFS (Adaptive Frontlight System) as well as LED fog lamps.

Beauty and spaciousness

The new Karoq will comfortably take me, my loved ones, and our luggage where we need to go. The well-shaped seats and high-quality materials make travelling a joy. All of this is packaged into compact outer dimensions, making it easy for me to weave through the city traffic and find a suitable parking space.

The higher seating position allows me to get in and out with ease, not to mention the good view it offers from behind the steering wheel. As the front and rear bumpers are higher off the road, the kerbs don’t scrape them when I’m parking by a pavement.

The real question is: What can’t you fit?

The VarioFlex seating system is made up of three back seats which can be independently folded down or completely removed, giving you plenty of options. With all three folded down you get a luggage capacity of 1,605 litres. Take them out and you’ll have a whopping 1,810 litres.

Automatic tailgate opening with Virtual Pedal

Magic happens in the KAROQ. The new Virtual Pedal∆, available with the optional Tech Pack, lets you open the boot simply by kicking your foot underneath the rear bumper—convenient for when your hands are tied with loads of shopping.

Adjustable driver seat

A vehicle that knows how you like to sit. For added convenience, the new KAROQ can be equipped with electrically-adjustable front seat** with memory function, available with the optional Travel Pack. Memory function stores three separate positions of the seat and external mirrors.

**Available with the optional Travel Pack.

Efficient and dynamic

The Karoq is a kind soul. It will haul whatever you load in it. It will drive you wherever you guide it.

You can choose from front- or all-wheel drive, a quiet petrol engine or a thrifty diesel engine, whatever you need.

Class Leading Safety

The new ŠKODA Karoq evokes safety, which it then backs up with a host of technical solutions and systems. A rigid body shell, ingeniously designed crumple zones, seven airbags, ABS, ESC and numerous other systems are now accepted as par for the course, and the new Karoq obviously delivers them.

On top of that, there are a number of state-of-the-art assist systems to protect pedestrians, keep the Karoq far away enough from the car in front, monitor safe lane switching or keep the car in its lane, assist the driver when parking, and prepare the occupants for collisions.

Side assist – blind spot detection

The new KAROQ sees things you don’t. Side Assist (Blind Spot Detection)**+, available with the optional Travel Pack, helps you change lanes safely by letting you know when a vehicle is in your blind spot. If so, an LED symbol in the side mirror will light up, and start flashing once you indicate.

+Safety technologies are designed to assist the driver, but should not be used as a substitute for safe driving practices.

**Available with the optional Travel Pack.

Lane assist

Stay on the right track. Lane Assist**+, available with the optional Travel Pack, uses a camera positioned within the rear-view mirror unit to actively recognise lane markings and, if you begin to stray, take corrective action to gently steer you back on course. It will also send audible and visual messages if you need to take additional action.

+Safety technologies are designed to assist the driver, but should not be used as a substitute for safe driving practices.

**Available with the optional Travel Pack.

Park assist

Parking doesn’t get any easier than this. With a press of a button, Automatic Parking Assist∆+, available with the optional Tech Pack, will begin searching for a parking space in a line of cars or other obstacles. When found, the car will steer itself into the space while you simply control the pedals. How’s that for assistance?

Seven airbags

We hope you never need the seven airbags that come standard in every KAROQ. Located at the front, front side, rear side, curtain, and driver’s knee area, they help protect you and your loved ones in the event of a collision.

Rear traffic alert

The new KAROQ always has your back. When you’re reversing, Rear Traffic Alert**+, available with the optional Travel Pack, recognises vehicles approaching from the sides and alerts you with an acoustic signal. If necessary, the brakes are automatically applied to help prevent any collision.

**Available with the optional Travel Pack.

Rear view camera

Some forward thinking for when you’re going backwards. The Rear View Camera+ engages as soon as you choose reverse and the picture is shown on the infotainment display. While dynamic guidelines help steer you in any tricky parking situations.

Intuitive Connectivity

Smartphones get along famously with smart cars. SmartLink^^ Smartphone Connectivity with Apple Carplay® & Android Auto™ seamlessly connects selected apps from your smartphone to your KAROQ, mirroring your phone’s display on the internal screen. So, whether you want to listen to music or receive turn-by-turn directions, you can do it all without touching your phone.

^^ SmartLink is compatible for selected apps with the latest smartphone versions of iOS and Android, active data service, and connection cable (sold separately).

Adaptive cruise control

Just when you thought cruise control couldn’t get any smarter, along comes the new KAROQ. Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)+ features a radar sensor on the front grille, allowing it to automatically brake and accelerate to a speed and distance set by you – ensuring a safe buffer between you and the car in front.

+Safety technologies are designed to assist the driver, but should not be used as a substitute for safe driving practices.

Canton sound system

Audiophiles wanted. With ten speakers – including one in the dashboard – and a subwoofer in the luggage compartment, the Canton Sound System∆, available with the optional Tech Pack, makes the KAROQ’s audio experience as awesome as its drive. The total power output is 575 W.

∆ Available with the optional Tech Pack.

Columbus navigation

Everything is at your fingertips in the new KAROQ. The Columbus 3D navigation system∆, available with the optional Tech Pack, features easy-to-use touch controls on an 9.2” glass display. The device offers many functions including Bluetooth®, SmartLink^^ vehicle set up and much more.

^^ SmartLink is compatible for selected apps with the latest smartphone versions of iOS and Android, active data service, and connection cable (sold separately).

Advanced keyless entry

A car that gets the door for you? Now that’s service. Standard in the KAROQ range is KESSY (Keyless Entry, Start and Exit System). It allows the driver to lock and unlock the car, and start and stop the engine, without having to insert or even handle the key.
