Re: Tray in centre console

The whole tray lifts out if you don't need it, or can be replaced upside-down to take up even more space. I also have the ashtray device in one of my cupholders to take sweet papers. In my Golf I had a shortbread tin to hold the sweets but it won't fit in the Karoq's cupholders. However a small take...

Re: Clips on boot rail

Not too sure which clips you're asking about ... but presumably not the moveable hooks themselves. The boot lining seems to vary depending whether you have the VarioFlex rear seats or not. I haven't and so only have the 'hook rail' on the nearside with no extra hooks on or near it. The offside of th...

Re: Newbie iPod connectivity

I haven't heard of anyone getting one working over USB. VW used to sell a special lead to link an iPod to a multipin socket in Golfs etc, But I think cars with USB ports would need extra software to get them to work. So my iPod sits at home coupled to my hi-fi amp and I've copied my iTunes library o...

Re: Key failure with no warning

Why is the battery in my key fob only lasting 4 weeks at a time 21 plate koroq SEL David L Earlier posts in this thread have suggested Duracell aren't suitable and recommended Panasonics instead. Which are yours? The new keys should turn off if not moved for 5 minutes, prolonging the batteries. Are...

Re: corning lights

When I configure a Karoq SE Technology on the Skoda UK website, the list of standard equipment only says 'Front Fog lights' whereas the list of standard equipment on the SE L (which has LED headlights as standard) says 'LED cornering front fog lights'. So it looks like cars with halogen headlights d...

Re: corning lights

I'm pretty sure that cars with halogen headlights would use the fog lights to get the cornering function. According to the manual: CORNER function The CORNER function is intended for turning or manoeuvring (e.g. when parking). The function illuminates the vicinity of the vehicle front in the directi...

Re: Karoq glovebox dial and SD card reader

The SD card reader was deleted for model year 21 cars as the MIB3 infotainment system uses the USB-C ports to read media files.

Re: Karoq ride comfort and quality

They are happy enough to sell you bigger wheels as options, so why not also sell optional smaller wheels for those who value comfort over looks? And give us the choice of buying all-season tyres as well instead of summer tyres!!

Re: Tyres/wheels

With respect Kodiaq, my Sportline did come with the DSG paddles on the steering wheel so it must be standard from MY21. However I've never seen the need for them after 10+ years of DSG driving! 4x4s come with 45 section tyres, and I also opted to have the dynamic chassis control added to avoid any c...

Re: Karoq ride comfort and quality

The Karoq is reckoned to be a bit softer than its sister vehicle the SEAT Ateca - which is set up with a 'sporty' ride. But many owners will tell you that it's more comfortable with the 17 inch alloys fitted to the SE / SE Drive / SE Nav+ / SE Technology trims than the 19 inch alloys fitted to the S...
