Skoda has unveiled an athletic spin on its compact Karoq.

Ready to debut at the Paris Motor Show in October, the sporty compact SUV will sit on stage alongside the recently revealed and rugged-looking Karoq Scout.

Similar in appearance to the larger seven-seat Kodiaq Sportline, the Karoq version adds sports bumpers front and rear, black trim elements as well as lower side skirts and new 19-inch alloys over the current line-up.

Under the bonnet are the most powerful engines in the line-up - a new 140kW 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol and 140kW 2.0-litre turbo diesel pair. Both are mated to a seven-speed DSG automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.

Milder 2.0-litre and 1.5-litre engines both produce 110kW and are mated to either front- or all-wheel drivelines and the option for a six-speed manual or DSG transmission.

Inside looks sportier with black ‘Thermoflux’ breathable-trim for wicking moisture in summer, black leather steering wheel with silver stitching, stainless steel pedals, LED ambient interior lighting, red ascents and black roof headliner.

Driving modes change the Sportline's attitude on the road while an optional Virtual Cocklpit digital display cluster for the driver adds a fifth Sportline screen that centres the tachometer similar to Audi’s S and RS models.

Speaking with Drive.com.au, Skoda Australia PR manager Kurt McGuiness said that the Czech brand’s local arm is looking to take the new Karoq Sportline but it’s unlikely the Scout will land down under.

Pricing and availability is yet to be confirmed.
