More choice in the small Crossover

More city, 24. August 2017

When the Karoq comes on the market, Skoda betrayed in the past. "In the second half of the year," it said previously. Order but you could the small Crossover model since July of 2017, albeit only with limited selection. Now the Czech manufacturer has expanded the range.

115-HP engines with DSG, 1.5 TSI with circuit

The 115-HP base engines in gasoline - and diesel page, the 1.0 TSI and the 1.6 TDI, are now also available with dual-clutch gearbox (DSG) can be combined – the additional cost compared with the manual is 1,800 euros. You pay so 26.090 Euro for the 1.0 TSI DSG and 28.990 Euro for the 1.6 TDI DSG. Conversely, the 150 HP strong 1.5 TSI with cylinder deactivation not only with DSG but also with a manual six-speed gearbox (from 26.490 euros) can be ordered. All-wheel drive is only for the 2.0 TDI, there he is series.

Not a 190-HP Diesel and still not as Active

What has stopped pushing Skoda, is the 190-HP Version of the 2.0 TDI, which is offered in the parallel model Seat Ateca (and the slightly smaller models, Audi Q2 and the VW T-Roc). Also, the basic equipment is Active, and will come later – first, there is the car only as an Ambition and as a Style. This is probably the reason why the so far cheapest Karoq (1.0 TSI Ambition) looks like in comparison to the corresponding Ateca 1.0 TSI is quite expensive: It costs 24.290 Euro, while the Ateca starting at 19.990 euros.(sl)
