The Karoq Sportline and Scout offer different exterior designs and trim options with performance tweaks to match their persona
As its name suggests the Sportline is the racier variant in terms of the car’s driving dynamics and design and features sports bumpers and exclusive 19-inch Vega black polished alloy wheels.
The front mudguards bear the SportLine logo and the body colour and black entry area, tinted windows and black roof rails round off the model’s elegant exterior.
Inside you’ll find black sports seats trimmed with Thermoflux breathable fabric and contrasting, black leather steering wheel, contrasting silver stitching, stainless steel pedals, LED ambient interior lighting, red accents and black headliner.
The athletic look is paired with either the most powerful 140 kW (190 PS) 2.0-litre petrol engine in the series or a 140 kW (190 PS) 2.0-litre diesel powertrain.
Karoq Sportline buyers will also be able to choose between front- and all-wheel-drive, and a six-speed manual gearbox or seven-speed dual clutch auto.
The Scout, by comparison, is a more robust and rugged model, characterised by chrome and silver-coloured bodywork elements, striking wheel arch linings and anthracite 19-inch ‘Crater’ alloy wheels.
To complete the sporty interior, the pedals are finished in stainless steel, while there is a multifunction leather steering wheel, black headliner, black roof pillars and an LED package, which includes ambient lighting.
Four-wheel drive is as standard on the Scout and its off-road design reflects its performance as the car comes with a rough terrain package.
Available in - three engine variants - 1.5 TSI petrol engine with 110 kW (150 PS), 2.0 TDI with 110 kW (150 Ps) and the 2.0 TDI delivers 140 kW (190 PS) – the Scout offers a choice of six-speed manual transmission and seven-speed DSG transmission.
Each car will come with hands-free powered tailgate, while virtual Cockpit digital dashboard and in-car internet with WiFi will be available as extra-cost options.
Full pricing and specifications have yet to be confirmed for the Scout and Sportline, but expect to hear more closer to an expected early 2019 launch.
