New engines for

Skoda's top SUVs

Skoda Karoq SportLine
Skoda Kodiaq Scout

A FURTHER power option is available to Skoda Karoq and Kodiaq buyers with the introduction of a new 187bhp two-litre petrol engine.

The engine develops 320Nm of torque between 1,400 and 4,100rpm and delivers its power to the road via a standard seven-speed DSG gearbox and four-wheel drive. Fitted in the Karoq SportLine model, it can cover the sprint from 0-60mph in under seven seconds, making it the fastest model in the company's mid-sized SUV range.

While the new engine is only available for the Karoq in SportLine spec, with prices starting from £31,820 OTR, buyers looking for a bigger SUV can specify the new unit in SE L, Scout, SportLine, Edition and L&K variants of the Kodiaq at prices ranging from £34,120 for the seven-seat SE L model up to £38,770 for the seven-seat L&K variant.

Kodiaq models fitted with the new engine aren't quite as quick off the mark as the Karoq, recording a 0-60mph sprint time just shy of 7.7 seconds.
