Skoda is set to debut another version of the Karoq at the 2018 Paris Motor Show.
Along with the Karoq Scout, Skoda will also debut the Karoq Sportline at Paris Motor Show, which is scheduled to be held later this year.
The Karoq Sportline will feature a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder, turbo petrol TSI engine, which is capable of 187bhp making it the most powerful petrol motor in the series. This engine will be exclusive to the Sportline model of the Karoq. Additionally, the 2.0-litre TDI diesel engine that will be available on the Sportline also develops 187bhp. Power is sent to the four-wheel drive system through a 7-speed DSG automatic gearbox.
Additionally, the front-wheel-drive 2.0 TDI with 147bhp comes with a manual 6-speed gearbox as standard. Along with that, a 1.5 TSI petrol engine which is also capable of 147bhp will be offered with a 7-speed twin-clutch auto with front-wheel drive and an option of all-wheel drive as well.
As for the styling upgrades, the Karoq Sportline comes with new sporty bumpers and new 18-inch ‘Mytikas’ black alloy wheels or an option of 19-inch ‘Vega’ black alloy rims. You also get tinted windows and black roof rails and the final touches on the exterior include the SPORTLINE logo on the front mudflaps.
Once you step inside, you will be greeted with black sports seats with contrasting silver stitching. The seats themselves are lined in three-ply air-permeable Thermoflux fabric designed to provide better comfort. While the front seats offer lumbar support, the rear seats are fixed. The steering wheel is a little sportier and is wrapped in perforated black leather with silver stitching. The pedals have stainless steel elements. Additionally, Skoda can also equip the Karoq Sportline with a Virtual Cockpit all-digital instrument cluster. One can also opt for an LTE module and Wi-Fi hotspot for the Sportline.
The Karoq Sportline along with the Karoq Scout will make their public debut at the Paris Motor Show, which will be held from October 4 to 14.
