New trim level brings equipment boost for Škoda Fabia, Karoq and Kodiaq
Škoda had added a mid-range trim level for its Fabia, Karoq and Kodiaq models, delivering extra kit for less than standard option prices.
Sitting above the SE trims that they’re based on, the SE Drive models kick off with the Fabia hatch and estate versions, which add in 16-inch alloy wheels, bespoke fabric upholstery and dashboard décor, plus an Amundsen satellite navigation system with Infotainment Online for one year and front and rear parking sensors as standard. Also included as standard are a surround sound package with six speakers, smartlink+ for connectivity with mobile devices, air conditioning and a three-spoke multifunction steering wheel.
It’s available with three engine options, with prices ranging from £14,865 (OTR) for the 1.0 TSI 60OS model to £18,290 (OTR) for the 1.0 TSI 110PS variant.
The Karoq SE Drive features standard equipment including 17-inch alloy wheels, bespoke SE Drive upholstery and LED ambient lighting, plus Amundsen satellite navigation with Infotainment Online for one year, colour trip computer, front and rear parking sensors and a rear view camera; worth in total £1,345 if specified separately but costing an extra £855 compared to the SE trim.
The Karoq SE Drive is available with two petrol engines and two diesels, covering 115 and 150hp outputs. Prices for the new Karoq SE Drive range from £23,385 for the 1.0 TSI 115PS model to £26,700 for the 2.0 TDI 115PS DSG.
At the top of the new SE Drive range is the Kodiaq variant. It’s available with two engine options, a 1.5 TSI 150PS petrol (manual or DSG) and a 2.0 TDI 150PS diesel (DSG only), and includes an Amundsen satellite navigation system with Infotainment Online for a year, a colour trip computer, rear-view camera, rear LED tail lights and front and rear parking sensors.
Customers also get 19-inch alloy wheels, bespoke SE Drive fabric upholstery, Mythos glossy black decor and LED ambient lighting.
Prices for the Kodiaq SE Drive range from £28,610 for the 1.5 TSI 150PS manual version up to £31,915 for the 2.0 TDI 150PS DSG variant; £1,485 more than the standard SE models but featuring extra equipment worth £1,850.
The new SE Drive models are available to order now, with first deliveries anticipated mid-March.
