Skoda News Feed: 2024 Skoda Karoq gets cheaper new entry point


New member
Skoda has introduced a new entry-level version of its Karoq SUV, joining the existing Style and Sportline variants in the line-up.

Dubbed simply the Skoda Karoq, this new entry-level variant is available to order now priced from $39,990 before on-road costs, or $39,990 drive-away.

Comparative drive-away pricing for Victorian buyers (each state has different taxes) pits the Karoq head-to-head with the Kia Sportage S automatic ($39,302 D/A), Hyundai Tucson ($39,329 D/A), and Mazda CX-5 Maxx ($39,990 D/A).

The Skoda Karoq is powered by a 1.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine producing 110kW of power and 250Nm of torque. This is mated to an eight-speed torque-converter automatic, with drive sent to the front wheels only.
