New SKODA Karoq gets the sportline treatment

Following the success of the Sportline trim level for the Superb and KODIAQ models in Ireland, ŠKODA have today announced that their latest family member, the KAROQ SUV is also set for the Sportline treatment.

The model will be unveiled at the Paris Motor Show in October, with right hand drive models expected to arrive in Ireland in November.

The ŠKODA KAROQ, introduced in 2017, is the second addition to ŠKODA's SUV range and carries over the brand’s design language into the compact SUV segment.

The compact SUV features new innovative technologies including a Virtual Cockpit and featured in a ŠKODA for the very first time.

In terms of connectivity, the ŠKODA KAROQ sets the benchmark in its class with infotainment features such as ŠKODA Connect online services which contain online infotainment as well as proactive services such as automatic emergency call.

The Sporty design of the ŠKODA KAROQ SPORTLINE is clear at first glance. Sports bumpers and the exclusive black 18-inch ‘Mytikas’ alloy wheels create a sporty appearance.

The sporty details continue with SPORTLINE badging, tinted windows and black roof rails rounding off the model’s elegant exterior.

The same is true with the interior, black sports seats with contrasting silver stitch work immediately catch the eye.

The seats are upholstered with revolutionary three-ply air-permeable Thermoflux fabric, which brings extra comfort to passengers, especially in summer and the front seats also feature lumbar support.

The multifunction sports steering wheel is covered with perforated black leather, again with silver stitching. Pedals with stainless steel elements, a black headliner and black roof pillars complete the sporty interior.

Irish pricing is yet to be confirmed but additional specifications such as Full LED Headlights, Reversing Camera, Drive Mode Select and Interior Ambient Lighting are expected to be standard equipment. Irish pricing is set to be announced before the Paris Motor Show in October with Irish vehicles set to arrive in November.
