Skoda’s new Karoq will cost from £20,875 when it goes on sale next week.

Order books for the Yeti replacement open on October 3.

The Karoq will be available in three different trim levels the SE, SE L and Edition, offering different levels of comfort and equipment.

Prices start at £20,875 for the base level SE model rising up to £31,435 for top spec Edition models.

SE versions feature 17-inch alloy wheels, privacy glass, LED rear lights, dual-zone climate control, a pedestrian monitoring safety system, and driver fatigue sensor as standard.

SE L models cost from £23,165 and adds in 18-inch alloy wheels, satellite navigation with an eight-inch touchscreen display, keyless entry and stop/start.

Full LED headlights are also thrown in as are heated front seats and Alcantara upholstery.

Edition models top the range and start at £27,110.

These come with 19-inch alloy wheels, panoramic sunroof, metallic paint and leather upholstery as standard.

At launch the Karoq will be available with four engine options – two petrol units with outputs of 115 and 150hp, and two diesels that have identical power outputs of 115PS and 150PS.

All four are available with a seven-speed DSG transmission as an option, while the two litre diesel can be had with four-wheel drive.

Meanwhile, Volvo is launching a scheme that aims to make car ownership as simple as owning a mobile phone.

Under Care by Volvo buyers will pay a fixed monthly fee and get a new car every two years.

The fee will cover not only the car itself but traditional extras such as insurance, taxes and servicing.

Volvo says it also won’t matter where you live or how old you are. And the price will be non-negotiable – research shows haggling is a part of the buying process customers find most off putting.
