Post by TJJ » Sun Sep 02, 2018 2:34 pm

I have bought the Karoq Launch Edition.

The Karoq is Candy White with 1.5 petrol DSG and 19" wheels.

In Australia the Karoq has just been released in June. Only ones available are the launch models. 6 manuals in total (no sunroof) and some DSGs have sun roofs and/or 19" wheels.

Pricing is different to the UK but I paid $41,000 drive away which is 23,000 pound on the road. Extra are different for each owner so here is what you get here in AUstralia

features included were:-

3 Year/45,000km Free Service Pack

Panoramic Sunroof is RRP $1,900

Metallic/Pearl Effect paint RRP $700 Red is $1,000 but Candy White is no extra charge

Mine with 19" wheels was 23,000 pound. On the road no more to pay. Though VAT is 10% not 20% like the UK

very pleased so far
