    New upcoming Skoda Karoq RS gets rendered

    by contentdeveloper on Sunday, Dec 24 2017

    Czech auto maker Skoda is making aggressive moves in the SUV segment going by the global trend. Skoda has so far impressed the global audience with its first full-sized SUV model named as the Kodiaq, which was quite recently followed by the compact SUV Karoq. The Czech automaker, which is primarily known for its quality sedan models, is now focusing on a new family of SUVs. While the Skoda Karoq follows the new design language of the highly stylized Kodiaq, other smaller SUV and crossover models are expected to follow in the same lines of these two new Skoda SUVs in the future. The Skoda Karoq is a 5-seater SUV model and is the global replacement of the very successful Yeti SUV. Now, a sportier version of the Skoda Karoq SUV is also expected to hit the global markets soon.

Now, a sportier version of the Skoda Karoq SUV is also expected to hit the global markets soon.

     

    Given the way Skoda presents its vehicles, and the success of the sporty RS versions of its existing models, the speculations of the Skoda Karoq RS is not anything farfetched. In fact, the Czech car maker is expected to bring out the new Karoq RS version sometime in 2018. While the Karoq RS’ official details and exact launch timeframe are still unknown, for the time being we can at least feat our eyes on the rendered image of the SUV’s RS spec model.

     

    As is naturally expected, the new upcoming Skoda Karoq RS model would be following in the lines of its bigger brother the Skoda Kodiaq SUV, when exterior styling is concerned. When dimensions are concerned, the Karoq will be retaining its original compact size and no measurement would alter. However, being the sportier avatar, the Karoq RS model will be coming with quite a few styling updates and changes to offer a more aggressive visual appeal. While the actual exterior design updates are not known as yet, looking through the eyes of the render artist, the Karoq RS would be flaunting a bolder out Skoda thick moustache front radiator grille to offer a more aggressive face. The sporty appeal would be heighted by smocked head lamps and of more muscular RS spec front and rear bumpers. The rear profile of the Karoq RS model will be flaunting massive RS spec wheels for added aggressive and menacing looks.

    Under the hood, the new upcoming Skoda Karoq RS model is likely to pack in the same engine range that powers the standard version of the SUV. However, Skoda is definitely expected to tweak these engines in order to offer more power and torque outputs to offer better performance and acceleration capabilities. It is also expected that the Karoq RS will be coming along with a hybrid version as well to offer great fuel efficiency along with lesser emission levels. The Skoda Karoq RS version will certainly be placed at the top of the Karoq SUV lineup.

    The Skoda Karoq is expected to come to India sometime next year, while the RS version could make it to our shores in 2019.
