Karoq Scout Launching at Paris Motor Show
Added: 09 August 2018
The KAROQ range is expanding with the new KAROQ Scout. It comes with four-wheel drive as standard in addition to a powerful off-road look. With its rough terrain package, it is fully prepared for any trip. It will be presented at the Paris Motor Show in October 2018.
The KAROQ Scout will come with a choice of three efficient and environmentally friendly engines:
1.5 TSI 150PS petrol engine in combination with a 7-speed DSG
2.0 TDI 150PS with a manual 6-speed gearbox as standard – a 7-speed DSG is an option
2.0 TDI 190PS coupled with a 7-speed DSG as standard
Robust elements highlight the off-road character:
The KAROQ Scout has a robust appearance, with chrome and silver-coloured bodywork elements, striking wheel arch linings and anthracite 19-inch ‘Crater’ alloy wheels. It also has tinted windows and Scout logos on the front mudguards.
The seats feature newly designed covers with black-brown contrasting seams. All seats are embroidered with Scout lettering.
The multifunction leather steering wheel, pedals with stainless steel elements and an LED package that includes ambient lighting complete the extensive range of standard equipment.
Virtual Cockpit and other smart features
Drivers can individually configure the KAROQ Scout’s Virtual Cockpit. The driving mode selection has an off-road setting. Passengers in the KAROQ Scout are ‘always online’ with an optional LTE module and Wi-Fi hotspot.
‘Simply Clever’ ideas and storage options
The KAROQ Scout boasts numerous ‘Simply Clever’ ideas and storage options. The electric boot lid with tip-to-close function opens and closes at the push of a button or by pulling gently on the open lid; on request, the virtual pedal under the rear bumper allows the boot to be opened with a simple foot motion. It also has a variable floor for the boot.
Storage nets on the front seats and centre console make every day driving easier, as does the compartment for small change and carpark tokens on the driver's side, as well as a holder for multimedia devices.
