Re: Karoq Petrol or Diesel???

Our 150PS DSG 4x4 Yeti averaged 36mpg over the 14500 miles we owned it, based on fuel added and miles covered, very similar to our previous 140PS manual 4x4 Yeti. It is very hilly around here and most of our driving is on local roads. The best mpg was 46 on a 600-mile round trip. In comparison, our ...

24 EU Software update

I've just been contacted by the dealer about a 24 EU software update. I asked about the reason and was informed that it was to remove a problem caused by too little torque at low speed, which is not related to the kangarooing experienced by some owners.

Re: Karoq Ordered - 12 week lead time

We obtained a cost for our Karoq on CARWOW, found the exact specification we wanted, selected the lowest price and our dealer matched it. It took a week from order to delivery.

Skoda Connect
