Skoda Karoq: test drive the Yeti footprints

Languishing in anticipation of the start of sales of the new compact crossover Skoda.

Skoda KaroqSkoda Karoq

Karoq — like portrait of Ambroise Vollard Picasso’s work. Near one edge, the corners and sharp lines. But if you move and blur eye focus how a harmonious way. Its predecessor Yeti looked trivial, but the gift of such transformation are not possessed. And small was a “shit box”! More precisely, the “kralicka”, as told to the Czechs. And Karoq plays interclass areas for a Skoda is not the first time.

The interior is familiar to the pain. Straight lines, rarely deviating from horizontal and vertical, are fed by the spirit of thoroughness. On the search for comfortable fit takes a few moments. Simple view of the seat provides comfort to the back and legs, not allowing them to go numb on a long journey.

Analog instrumentation with white numbering on a grey background require some getting used to. This is the first Skoda, whose digital panel (option) allows to build information at the driver’s discretion.

Large pockets in the doors, compartments for little things, the umbrella under the front right seat — all as expected. Rear seats not in size a lot. In order to put separate seats VarioFlex adjustable in two directions. But when folded, these seats are not lie flush with the floor of the trunk. However, this is the only claim to the cargo Bay. A wide, tall opening with a low threshold (I measured 720 mm), the cubic form is subordinated to family values.

In Europe Karoq available with any of the four turbo engine. Base liter TSI three-cylinder I bypassed because it’s not appropriate for us. But a-liter 150‑strong “turboservice”, operating on the Miller cycle, is another matter. With her Karoq confidently leaves from ten seconds to accelerate to the first hundred.

A-liter engine with 150 HP would be our most popular. But it is not excluded that in Russia he will give place to the 1.4 TSI engine of the same capacity.A-liter engine with 150 HP would be our most popular.

Why Miller’s cycle? The engineers did not discover America: their main goal was to reduce fuel consumption. For the European driving cycle, it is likely that this idea would work, but in real life, not so much. The Sicilian serpentine flow easily reach 9 l/100 km.

I liked the 150‑strong two-liter diesel. He happily pulls the car, almost Recalling its “heavy” origin. Yes, and the fuel richitlinie applies — for every hundred requires two liters less. There are no questions to the DSG seven-speed preselection. He follows quickly and accurately. But without a tar spoon has not done. It is possible to get in sport mode the box: if ever rapidly accelerate the DSG will long linger in low gears, giving the direction of the tachometer go into the red zone. However, he and “sport”.

Corporate gait

Volkswagenaudi ubiquitous MQB platform — happiness for the active driver. Whether front drive or full — without a difference. Karoq with elastic beam rear steel demonstrates restraint in vehicle cornering, just at the limit of coupling properties of tires showing a tendency to drift front. All-wheel drive version is devoid of this defect. Rear independent mnogoryichazhka Karoke gives almost perfect neutral understeer. Servo faithfully generates the desired “gravity”, bringing feedback to perfection. Not reproach.

Karoq built on the platform MQB — as the Tiguan and Kodiaq. Schematic diagram of the powertrain is the same but the Haldex coupling works without a preload, by default, giving the time the front wheels on a slippery road or rough terrain Karoq must yield counterparts.Karoq built on the platform MQB — as the Tiguan and Kodiaq.

Large potholes Karoq handles skillfully, and with old medieval streets of the big boulder to cope quite well. But well-trained handling still cut dividends in smoothness, but still with interest. On the back of Karaka meticulously transferred all of the minor flaws of the road.

Suspension travel on the rebound, according to my measurements, was about 60 mm (15 mm less than the Tiguan) — posted Karoq before. This does not mean that he is afraid of light off-road. Roulette showed that under the protection of the engine almost 180 mm — close to the factory data. And to overcome diagonalka Skoda can. We only need to go in off-road mode transmission and remembered that on Karoke Haldex coupling works without preload — the rear wheels are connected later than the older Kodiak.

Posted Karoq fast short base and a small suspension stroke doing their job. But to get out of this trap he knows.Posted Karoq fast short base and a small suspension stroke doing their job. But to get out of this trap he knows.

What? Where? When?

From questions about the start of sales in Russia the representatives of Skoda go. I don’t believe Karoq pass by Russia. So the question is not whether Yes or no, and quite different — when?

In Germany Karoq on average 4000 euros cheaper Tiguan. And if the Russian price for the base version to keep at a level close to Qashqai dimensions, simultaneously replacing the familiar one-litre TSI 110‑horsepower engine 1.6 with a gun, then I’m definitely going to recommend it Karoq.
