Skoda to showcase student-built Scala Spider

  Skoda to showcase student-built Scala Spider One-off open-top variant of family hatchback set to be unveiled in JuneThe as-yet-unnamed variant of the family car is due to be revealed in June and will be the seventh concept car produced by students on the Czech firm’s training scheme. Previous machines have included a Kodiaq-based pick-up and a convertible Karoq.

The Skoda Karoq still feels like a relatively fresh compact crossover, but a quick look at the calendar reveals the Yeti’s replacement has We’ve checked all trim levels currently available for the Karoq and none of them have that front bumper design, so it’s probably due with the model’s mid-cycle update.

The facelifted Volkswagen Tiguan has been teased in an official new sketch. The new car is expected to be revealed this summer, with an updated design inspired by As it does now, the Tiguan will rival the Audi Q3, BMW X1, Hyundai Tucson, Peugeot 3008 and the mechanically identical Skoda Karoq .

• Karoq is Skoda’s mid-size SUV • Mild-hybrid assistance expected • On sale in 2021

The Skoda Karoq SUV is set to be updated soon, judging by spy shots of a mildly camouflaged test car. We’d expect a small styling update, some improvements inside and mild-hybrid assistance for some engines. The facelifted Karoq is likely to be launched in early 2021 and will go on sale later in the year.

Skoda’s SUVs all have pretty similar names but the Karoq is its middle offering, sitting between the smaller Skoda Kamiq and the larger Skoda Kodiaq, which has seven seats in most trim levels. The five-seat Karoq is Skoda’s answer to family SUVs such as the Kia Sportage, Renault Kadjar and Mazda CX-5.

Production of the Skoda Karoq is Moving to Germany Due to Overwhelming Demand. Inside, the Karoq RS will not differ too much from lesser models - expect sporty RS-branded seats, the The source report suggests Karoq RS could be shown this year and once it goes on sale, it will be priced

The Skoda Karoq and Skoda Kodiaq SUVs will receive a mild facelift for 2020 with styling tweaks, updated technology and a new engine option. The revised models will arrive in dealerships later this year, with prices starting at around £22,000 for the Karoq and around £30,000 for the Kodiaq.

As is common with midlife updates, the Skoda Karoq is set to receive a few interior upgrades to keep it fresh. A new steering wheel could feature, alongside an updated selection of touchscreens and extra technology. We don’t expect a ‘floating’ touchscreen (as fitted in the Skoda Scala) to be deployed in the Karoq, as that would involve a thorough interior redesign, but the Virtual Cockpit digital instrument cluster could be fitted as standard on some trim levels.

Outside, changes are likely to amount to tweaked light clusters, air intakes and bumpers. A couple of new alloy wheel and paint colour choices will be added to the range.

Under the bonnet, we expect Skoda to make use of the VW Group’s mild-hybrid engines, which would see a small battery added to the 148bhp petrol and diesel engines. This battery stores energy lost in braking and uses it to help acceleration or to shut the engine down when coasting. The Volkswagen Golf currently gets the 'eTSI' petrol version but the mild-hybrid diesel is expected to join the range soon, while these engines could also be introduced on the recently facelifted SEAT Ateca.

Skoda also has access to plug-in hybrid technology that combines a 1.4-litre petrol engine and an electric motor. In the Volkswagen Passat GTE and Skoda Superb iV, this equates to a 35-mile electric range and low CO2 emissions, which gives a pleasingly low Benefit-in-Kind tax liability for company-car drivers.

Fiat 500 2021 review .
Impressive first showing for new-era 500. Its fanbase will love it and even naysayers will respect how it drivesOn our city-focused short drive around Turin and the surrounding area, we’re told not to pay much attention to the cabin plastics, infotainment software and calibration of the Level 2 automated safety systems, all of which will be tweaked pre-October. The rest, though, is fair game.
