New Skoda Karoq SE Technology targets business users

Czech car manufacturer Skoda has announced a new Karoq SUV trim configured to meet the needs of fleet users. SE Technology is its name

Skoda has revealed the Skoda Karoq SE Technology designed specifically for fleets. The new trim level comes with both petrol and diesel engine options and prices that start below £21,000.

The Karoq SE Technology comes as standard with front and rear parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, a panoramic sunroof and a one-year subscription to ‘Infotainment Online’. The the latter is a service which provides drivers with live traffic reports and calendar updates – useful for those working on the move.

The engine range consists of two petrol engines – a 1.0-litre 113bhp three-cylinder and a 1.5-litre 148bhp four-cylinder – along with two diesel engines – a 1.6-litre 113bhp four-cylinder and a 2.0-litre 148bhp four-cylinder. All claim an average of over 50mpg, but the 1.6-litre diesel provides the best economy with mpg figures reaching into the 60s on the combined cycle.

Furthermore, those drivers who prefer to let the car look after gear selection, can have a seven-speed DSG transmission spec’d with any of the four engines. However, if you are in need of four-wheel drive the 2.0-litre diesel is your only option.

Prices start at just under £21,000 for the 1.0-litre petrol with a manual gearbox, before rising all the way to £26,805 for the top of the line 2.0-litre diesel 4x4 with a DSG gearbox.

The SE Tech also comes with a few practical trinkets that Skoda is becoming known for, such as an umbrella under the passenger seat and ice scraper in the fuel cap, both of which are simple, yet useful additions for motorists.

As with all Skoda SE Technology cars, the Karoq is available to purchase as a private buyer, but with no standard finance option. Finally, the Karoq SE Technology comes with P11D values starting at £20,660 and a benefit-in-kind percentage as low as 22.
