The 250,000th Skoda Karoq has rolled off the production line at the Skoda Auto plant in Mlada Boleslav, Czech Republic. The milestone model was a 1.0-litre TSI, 113bhp Karoq in a metallic Black Magic finish. The compact SUV celebrated its world premiere in Stockholm in May 2017, and serial production began in July 2017. The Karoq has therefore surpassed the mark of a quarter of a million units manufactured just two years since the start of production.

Skoda has been building the Karoq at its plant in Kvasiny since July 2017 and also in Mlada Boleslav since January 2018. In 2018, the Czech manufacturer delivered 115,700 Karoqs to its customers and this year it has so far delivered 97,900 vehicles, making it one of the brand's most popular models.

For the 2020 model year, Skoda has provided the Karoq with visual and technological enhancements. The successful compact SUV now comes with a comprehensive range of equipment for even more safety and comfort. Side Assist is available for example, warning the driver of vehicles in the blind spot up to 70m away. The Karoq's connectivity is also state-of-the-art, offering a plethora of different online services in addition to the innovative Skoda Connect features. What's more, the Skoda Karoq sets benchmarks in terms of its chassis too, allowing for trips on rougher terrain at all times, and adaptive Dynamic Chassis Control being available for both the front as well as all-wheel drive variants.
