Skoda Karoq Police Cruiser Is Ready To Fight Crime In The UK

Skoda has expanded its emergency services vehicle range by launching a new Karoq, modified for police applications in the UK.

Dressed in a specific livery, it’s fitted with a roof-mounted LED bar, in addition to more LED signal lights built into the front screen, grille, tailgate and number plate. All of these are complemented by the 100-am three-tone siren. Police officers can partially or completely remove the rear seats to create additional load space.

Thus, the boot capacity can be increased from the standard 521 liters (18.4 cu-ft), with the rear seats in position, to 1,810 liters (63.9 cu-ft) with the seats removed. The extra space “can be specially converted to suit operational requirements”, says Skoda.

“We have worked closely with emergency services teams over the years to ensure that we are providing vehicles that are practical and can be converted to their exact requirements”, commented Skoda UK Head of Fleet, Henry Williams. “These vehicles are in constant use by life-saving teams and an integral requirement of any vehicle is its reliability, which Skoda delivers time and time again. The Karoq fits the bill in every way with outstanding handling, space, and practicality.”

The Skoda Karoq police cruiser also comes with useful driving assistance features. These include the Front Assist with City Emergency Braking and Pedestrian Monitor, Blind Spot Detect and Adaptive Cruise Control.

Also, emergency services can choose between four engine options when it comes to the Karoq: two TSI petrol units and two TDI diesels, with 115PS (113hp / 86kW) and 150PS (148hp / 110kW) in both cases. All four engines can be had with a dual-clutch seven-speed automatic transmission, as an option, while the most powerful diesel is available with four-wheel drive.
