Skoda Karoq Russian Assembly of engines and transmissions

Two and a half years before Russia got the successor of the Skoda Yeti SUV!Cyril Mileshkin “Behind the wheel”

In Europe before the facelift is just around the corner, and for us Skoda Karoq — hot new. We, however, are not used to. This is a premium being taken with almost no delay, and the cars of the mass segment of the market after careful economic calculation.

The prospects of Karaka bright — we love and Skoda, and crossovers. In the top 25 of the market made it relatively expensive Kodiaq.

Prices announced are still only with the Ambition 1.4-litre engine and DSG — 1 515 000. Looms range from 1.3 to 1.7 million rubles, because Karoq simpler and smaller Tiguan (from 1.5 million rubles), but richer and more Crete with Captures that in a good configuration are more than 1.2–1.3 million rubles. The direct competitors are the Nissan Qashqai and Renault Arkana (if you ignore the fact that the Arcana and the coupe).

With dimensions 4382×1841×1603 mm Karoq at 160 mm longer, 48 mm wider and 88 mm lower than its predecessor Yeti. The wheelbase is stretched by 60 mm, and the back seat is good feel.With dimensions 4382×1841×1603 mm Karoq at 160 mm longer, 48 mm wider and 88 mm lower than its predecessor Yeti. The wheelbase is stretched by 60 mm, and the back seat is good feel.

All-wheel drive with the 1.6 unit was and never will be. With the 1.4 TSI it is offered as an option. And for the attainment of the second pair of wheels will have to repay replacement automatic DSG six-speed preselection. Apparently, the most expensive configuration I decided to leave all the color technologies in full. Version 1.4 TSI 4×2 and 4×4 dynamic qualities are identical: 8.8 seconds to 100 km/h and 199 km/h maximum speed of cars with automatic, 8.9 seconds and 193 km/h — with the robot. It is curious that shelf maximum torque (250 N·m) for monoprivodnom machine ranges from 1500 to 4000 rpm, and the polnoprivodniki. ends at 500 rpm before.

The front panel is visually indistinguishable from the European. At first glance, it looks boring, like a dream of an engineer-draftsman. But the optional digital tidy and multimediasystem with features mirroring smartphone apps on regular display disperse boredom.The front panel is visually indistinguishable from the European.

Front and rear mounted Karoke one charging port USB type-C. Inconvenient, because not yet all stocked with wires of the new format and gadgets for them. However, there are two standard sockets for 12 V and 230 V. Front and rear Karoke mounted on one charger connector USB type-C.

The background lighting of the interior offers a choice of ten colors. Interesting feature: the glowing stripe is on the sides of the helm, but they are extinguished as soon as the car starts moving, in order not to distract the driver.The background lighting of the interior offers a choice of ten colors.

The suspension on the Russian Karoke adapted to our roads: a modified calibration of springs and shock absorbers, the architecture remains the same. The rough road package includes additional security features bilge: engine compartment, wiring, brake lines and some other elements. Under regular plastic engine under cover, I measured 170 mm (Skoda claims 164 mm on version 4×4). Sparsely… car Buyers in the Active and Ambition trim levels on the footwear for them not to go bankrupt: a standard — “sixteen” wheels. The top-end variant of the Style — 17‑inch for modern crossover far below the critical size. Fans to stand out available wheel size or two bigger.

Dual-zone climate control Climatronic maintains the function of Air Care to clean the cabin air in the recirculation mode. Synchronization protocols with the Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and MirrorLink available even for a basic Swing system with 6.5‑inch screen, not to mention more cool.Dual-zone climate control Climatronic maintains the function of Air Care to clean the cabin air in the recirculation mode.

The rear seat is friendly for two, but if necessary, shelter and third, although the Central tunnel rather big. Of nice options — holders for tablets, the lower side of the airbag (the entire cabin is six by default, and up to nine extra charge). Of course, there are extreme and heated seats. Blinds and individual climate control for rear passengers to Caraco not allowed in status. But why no headrests with folding “ears” for easy sleep? However, think about the unification of folksvagenovskih models: similar parts from Kodiak will surely stand as a family. If needed, can be ordered.The rear seat is friendly for two, but if necessary, shelter and third, although the Central tunnel rather big.

In the Russian specifications Luggage capacity is slightly less than the “European”: 500 liters vs 521. And underground is still a stowaway. However, the predecessor of the Yeti “hold” was a half times less. For the fifth door you can enjoy two options — drive- standard contactless triggered by swing leg.In the Russian specifications Luggage capacity is slightly less than the “European”: 500 liters vs 521.

The role of the base engine performs perfectly familiar to us 110‑strong aspirated 1.6, which is produced in Kaluga. Will work 5-speed manual, the automatic version was certified, but on the cars from the first batch it will not. Peace! The Czechs have not forgotten about the priorities of the Russians, and prepared a surprise. On front-wheel drive Kuroki 1.4 TSI motor (also an old acquaintance, 150 HP) installed… a classic automatic transmission and 8-speed. First of the compact cars of Volkswagen turbo engine with fluid is not combined. Exclusive to Russia!

Skoda is entering a new nameplate. Now, instead of the brand logo boldly on the stern was written the name of the brand. All because of the Chinese — they are poorly versed in the logos, it is easier to read. Not only the Czechs rushed to please the whims of the largest automotive market in the world. For this reason, appeared the projection of the logo mark on the pavement when opening the front doors. It looks awful, especially on models of luxury brands.Skoda is entering a new nameplate.

It looks awful, especially on models of luxury brands.

The angles of entry and exit is very modest: 18.4 and 18.7 degrees, respectively. For example, the Qashqai, they are, in our measurements, the amount to 20.5 and 29.5 degrees, at Arcana 22.5 and 27 degrees.

Karoq not for the broken roads. But if you still drive it on the roads, here are useful electronic simulation for differential locks. It is installed and FWD versions. Crossover with all the leading advanced driving modes-armed “snow” and “off road”. Adapted algorithms electronics work miracles will do, but will help maximize the use of the car.

I am sure that Karok will become popular with us, and he will also be in the top sales — where guests staying for three of the four available in Russia Skoda: Rapid, Octavia and Kodiaq.
