Skoda considering Karoq vRS version

Skoda considering Karoq vRS version

Hot on the heels of the Karoq’s unveiling in Stockholm, Skoda boss Bernhard Maier has told reporters that there is a demand for an SUV with a vRS badge, and that the Karoq has what it takes to get that badge.

This has spurted speculations amongst automotive enthusiasts that Skoda could presently be developing a vRS version of the Karoq compact SUV. Now, if the Karoq vRS did make it to the market, it may possibly be powered by the group’s SEAT Ateca Cupra motor, a four-cylinder power-plant that’s capable of making 300bhp. But for now, Skoda is tight-lipped on the matter.

Till then though, the Karoq will be offered with a choice of the 1.0-litre and 1.5-litre diesel mills, and the petrol models that comprise of the 1.6-litre and the 2.0-litre motors. They are expected to be mated to six-speed manual or seven-speed DSG transmission, along with optional 4X4 capability on some of these engines.

Meanwhile, Skoda’s Karoq compact SUV will replace the Skoda Yeti, and should roll into Indian showrooms towards the end of this year. Expect to hear more about the Karoq vRS in the time come, so stay tuned.
