SKODA has revealed its latest SUV, the Karoq, at the Frankfurt Motor Show which it says is packed with the most digitised, high-tech kit in its range.

This is the first time a fully customisable digital instrument panel has been offered in a Skoda.

The displays can be personalised and are linked to the infotainment system and all connectivity solutions serve to improve the flow of information, and enhance the entertainment and safety.

Karoq passengers can always be online thanks to the Karoq's LTE module and WLAN hotspot.

The new Karoq also offers new driver assistance systems including park assist, lane assist and the traffic jam assistant. Blind spot warnings and pedestrian detection are other safety aids.

The compact SUV offers full-LED headlights and rear lights as well as ambient lighting for the interior.

Five engines are available, including two petrol engines and three diesel engines with outputs ranging from 115bhp to 190bhp.

With the exception of the most powerful diesel, all powertrains can be had with a manual six-speed gearbox or seven-speed DSG auto box.

The 2.0 TDI with 190bhp comes as standard with 4×4 drive and seven-speed DSG while the new 1.5 TSI petrol model offers cylinder deactivation for improved economy.
