The 2024 Skoda Karoq mid-size SUV has gained a new base-model variant which brings the entry price below $40,000 drive-away for the first time in nearly two years.

Priced from $39,990 drive-away, the eponymous ‘Karoq‘ removes some features compared to the existing Style entry model to reduce its drive-away price by $5500.

It is the most affordable the Karoq has been since the final shipment of pre-facelift models in early 2022, when the Style was $39,990 drive-away – without some features standard on the new base-model variant.

Skoda Australia has taken aim at entry-level versions of competing mid-size SUVs it deems to be “‘base’ and basic rivals,” and claims in a media statement its vehicle is for the “savvy buyer who has done their homework”.

The company says the new Karoq variant is better equipped but comparable on price to a base Kia Sportage S automatic ($38,960 in NSW), Hyundai Tucson ($39,215 in NSW) and Mazda CX-5 Maxx ($38,888 in NSW).

Compared to the Style model, the entry-level Karoq lacks a widescreen 10.25-inch digital instrument display, keyless entry, digital radio, hands-free power tailgate, wireless phone charging, VarioFlex removable rear seats, and other items.

It retains 18-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights and tail-lights, an 8.0-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, front and rear parking sensors, fabric seats, push-button start, dual-zone air conditioning, and an eight-speaker sound system.

A suite of advanced safety technology is still standard, including autonomous emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert.

The latter three features were made standard across the Karoq range for 2024, alongside revisions to the option pack contents and prices. Click here for more details, or scroll down to the bottom of this story for the full feature list.

Features reserved for higher-grade models – or a slew of option packs priced up to $10,900 – include matrix LED headlights, satellite navigation, leather seats, a 360-degree camera, lane centring assist, heated power-adjustable front seats, and auto-folding side mirrors.

2024 Karoq Style.

The base Karoq and Karoq Style are powered by a 1.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine with 110kW and 250Nm, powering the front wheels through an eight-speed torque-converter automatic transmission for claimed fuel use of 6.5 litres per 100 kilometres.

The Karoq Sportline upgrades to a 140kW/320Nm 2.0-litre turbo four-cylinder with a seven-speed dual-clutch auto and all-wheel drive.

All models come with a seven-year unlimited-kilometre warranty. There are only two options on the new base variant: a seven-year/105,000km service pack for $2750, and metallic paint for $770.

The 2024 Skoda Karoq range is available to order now. The entry-level variant is a permanent addition to the range.
