Škoda Karoq and Kodiaq get new petrol engine
Škoda has expanded its Karoq and Kodiaq SUV line-ups with the addition of a new petrol unit; the result of continued growth in demand for petrol engines.

It brings 320Nm of torque while offering a 0-62mph time of 7.0 seconds, making it the fastest Karoq in the range. It also returns 32.1-33.2mpg on the WLTP combined cycle while emitting 158g/km of CO2.
The engine is also available on Kodiaq SE L, Scout, SportLine, Edition and L&K models, again equipped with seven-speed DSG and 4×4 as standard. Pricing for the Kodiaq models with the new engine start from £34,120 OTR for the seven-seat SE L model rising up to £38,770 OTR for the seven-seat L&K variant.
In terms of performance, the 2.0 TSI 190hp Kodiaq brings a 0-62mph time of 7.7 seconds. Fuel consumption varies according to model, with the most frugal being the SE L model that returns 30.1-31.7mpg on the WLTP combined cycle along with CO2 emissions of 162g/km.
