From mid-2017, the Skoda Karoq replaces the Yeti as the brand’s small crossover, but what does its name mean and where does it come from?
The Karoq is undeniably a car, so that part of the name is clear, while Skoda says that the arrow portion refers to the arrowhead that forms part of the brand’s logo and “represents the brand’s dynamism”.
Hopefully Skoda also unleashes a vRS/RS version to justify the arrow portion of its name.
The Karoq will be based on the MQB platform used by the Volkswagen Tiguan, and it replaces the Yeti. The Karoq will be unveiled in Sweden on May 18, 2017 before going on sale in the second half of the year.
