Skoda’s new compact SUV Skoda Karoq goes official, providing a replacement for the popular Yeti. Well, before you think the cars might resemble each other, we’re telling you this CUV is a totally different piece of pie. It doesn’t just look better, it also is more capable and nicer to look at. But let’s hope it will be just as affordable as the Yeti is.
So let’s cut to the chase and get right down to the facts and figures that make 2018 Skoda Karoq a serious contender in this busy segment. Skoda are not joking when they say the Karoq is compact. It measures 4,382 mm in length, is 1,841 mm wide, and 1,605 mm high, with a long wheelbase of 2,638 mm (all-wheel version: 2,630 mm) and luggage compartment capacity of 521 l with the rear seats in place. With the rear seats folded down, the volume increases to 1,630 l. So even though exterior dimensions are compact, the interior room is more than decent.
