The Skoda Yeti’s substitution’s over there, and it’s dubbed the 2017 Skoda Karoq. Specially to take on the Nissan Qashqai, it will arrive later this year to take on the Nissan Qashqai.
That’s going to be a radical turn in direction for design. The 2017 Skoda Karoq actually swaps its predecessor’s extraordinary shape for a more old-school SUV look, which takes inspiration from the larger Kodiaq.
The new vehicle’s going to be built around the Volkswagen Group’s MQB platform, also underpinning such models as the Audi Q3, the Volkswagen Tiguan and the Seat Ateca. As for autonomous driving technology, it might be borrowed from the Kodiaq.
The Karoq’s employment of the MQB platform actually expands its powertrain compatibility to a slew of the Volkswagen Group’s diesel as well as petrol motors. Turbocharged four-cylinder units are supposed to generate the very breadth of the line-up, though a hybrid version should come up later. The Volkswagen Group’s fresh market ambitions might make a fully electric version come true.
