Skoda Sunroq revealed as being created by the students Karoq-based roadster

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The car of series B and C pillars have been removed and the tailgate has been replaced by a measure of element that incorporates a high central brake light.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.
