The New Compact ŠKODA Karoq Begins Production

Production Commences at Kvasiny Plant

We’re excited to announce the all-new ŠKODA Karoq has started production at ŠKODA’s Kvasiny Plant in the Czech Republic. The very first ŠKODA Karoq rolled off the production line this week and marks the start of the eagerly anticipated seventh model series, which further extends SKODA’s SUV line-up.


All-New ŠKODA Karoq

The ŠKODA Karoq is a completely new compact SUV, which compliments the existing larger ŠKODA Kodiaq. The Kodiaq, since its launch has gained a number of accolades including What Car? Best Large SUV in the What Car? Car of the Year awards! We have no doubt that the Kodiaq’s younger brother, the Karoq, will be as successful if not more than.


In response to growing popularity and market interest, the Karoq extends the SUV range, offering customers a choice of vehicles which offer powerful design, generous space and great functionality. The Karoq follows SKODA’s ‘Simply Clever’ ethos with its state-of-the-art driver assistance systems and exceptional space offering.

What is Karoq?

The name Karoq is unique to most. The name itself comes from an indigenous tribe who use the Alutiiq language, which originates on an island south of the Alaska coast. Find out what Karoq really means in this short clip about naming the new SUV!
