An open top version of the Skoda Karoq has been revealed.
Name Skoda Sunroq, it is the work of 23 students from Skoda’s Mladá Bolesav trade school, and imagines how a Skoda entry in the crossover convertible segment currently occupied by the Range Rover Evoque convertible and to be accompanied by the Volkswagen T-Roc cabriolet in 2020 – it could be.
The Sunroq keeps the Karoq five-seat layout, is powered by the VW Group’s new 1.5-liter TSI petrol engine and is capable of 0 to 62 mph in 8.4 seconds on its way to a top speed of 127mph.
The car of series B and C pillars have been removed and the tailgate has been replaced by a measure of element that incorporates a high central brake light.
The car is a permanent roadster roadster, with a measure of white and red leather interior to match the red color of the bodywork, wheel and finishes. Other elements include puddle lighting under the doors and a lighting system flagship of Skoda in the front.
It is the latest in a series of manufacturer of made-offs in the last few weeks. They include: a Honda Civic Type R Pickup concept completed by specialists in the brand’s Swindon factory; a Nissan Leaf, a Car Open a concept created to celebrate the 100,000 Leaf sales in Japan; a 1180bhp Schaeffler-modified the Audi RS3 saloon with four electric motors and Volkswagen apprentice-made Wörthersee Golf courses.
The Sunroq never going to make production in this aspect, even if Volkswagen is going to make a T-Roc convertible in 2020, so that a Skoda-badged sibling is a remote possibility.
