The 1.5-liter turbo-petrol engine powered Karoq seems to be a follow up of Yeti. But Karoq will be an automatic instead of manual. With an output of 150 hp and 250 Nm torque, Karoq will be filled with gadgets. This list may include a panoramic sunroof, Virtual Cockpit digital instrument cluster, an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, dual-zone climate control, nine airbags, and more. But as the Skoda Karoq will be shipped completely build-up. The price tag of 24 lakh plus will not be surprising.
