Originating from the language of the Alutiiq, an indigenous tribe from an island off the southern coast of Alaska, the name for ŠKODA’s new compact SUV, The KAROQ, makes it clear that it means business. Aligned strongly with the hugely successful Kodiaq, it is easy to make the assumption that the KAROQ will be every bit as tough as its big brother, with enough cutting-edge technology to make every journey more enjoyable than the last.
ŠKODA CEO, Bernhard Maier, said: ‘The ŠKODA KAROQ is a completely newly designed SUV that sets new benchmarks for our brand and its segment in every way. With this new SUV, we are taking the next logical step in our SUV strategy. The ŠKODA KAROQ impresses with its unique brand identity and a distinctive product identity and is introducing – alongside the typical ŠKODA strengths – the brand’s new, emotive design language into the compact SUV segment.’
Driven by something different
From its public introduction in Stockholm in May, the tough exterior of the KAROQ makes it clear that the Yeti’s replacement will hit the road with an unapologetic splash – everything from its muscular shape and bold, chunky contours promise to turn every head on its way by, plus optional full LED headlights add a determined and unmistakable touch of class.
