Days after Skoda introduced us to the exceptional-looking Karoq Scout, we are not again being treated to the all-new version of the Karoq Sportline. The Czech company’s sporty interpretation of the compact SUV leaves us wondering what more can Skoda do in the future.

The crossover SUV is scheduled to be presented at the Paris Motor Show in October and it will come with the most powerful engine from the range.

In total, there are four engine options to choose from: the 2.0 TSI petrol engine, two 2.0 TDI diesel engines, and the 1.5 TSI petrol engine. The 2.0 TSI petrol engine can make 190 horsepower. This is the main engine being offered by Skoda for the Karoq Sportline. There are two 2.0 TDI engines, the most powerful of which can also produce 190 horses. Using this drivetrain, the Sportline can pair well enough with a seven-speed DSG and four-wheel-drive.

The other 2.0 TDI uses a front-wheel-drive system and can only produce 150 horsepower. It comes with a manual six-speed gearbox. Options available a four-wheel-drive system combined with a seven-speed DSG.

The 1.5 TSI petrol engine comes with a front-wheel drive with the seven-speed DSG as an option. This is also paired with an all-wheel drive.

In terms of exterior, the Karoq Sportline has sportier bumpers, 19-inch black wheels, front mudguards with the Sportline logo, and black roof rails. Inside, the sports seats are all in black with contrasting silver stitch. They are upholstered in air-permeable Thermoflux fabric, which brings extra comfort to passengers, especially during the summer season.

The multifunction steering wheel is covered in perforated black leather with silver stitching, similar to the sports seats. Completing the interior styling are pedals with stainless steel elements, a black headliner, black roof pillars, and an LED package that includes ambient lighting.

For a bit more money, you can get the 2019 Mazda CX-9 with much more exciting gear, including the Apple CarPlay and the Android Auto. This is a perfect upgrade for a crossover that the family loves because of its sheer functionality and style.

The Mazda CX-9 is better than ever. That is if you ever found something wrong with Mazda vehicles before today. Almost all Mazda cars and crossovers have always been right on the money—they are not exactly extravagant and they are not out-of-the-box imaginative, but they are always a good value for money because of their functionality and their style.

Mazda improves the interior comfort of the CX-9 too. Noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) values have been lowered by using a thicker headliner and thicker floor mats. The Japanese automaker said this move is supposed to aid “in ease of conversation and enjoyment.” The company also retuned the suspension on all version, making riding the CX-9 a smoother, finer, and more enjoyable experience.

There are a number of different versions for the CX-9: Sport, Touring, Grand Touring, and Signature. They have special packages such as the Sport Package which is available for Sport, and the Premium Package available for the Touring trim.

You can choose to have the Mazda CX-9 with either a front-wheel drive or an all-wheel drive, except for the Signature since that comes standard with an all-wheel drive. The Sport trim will sell for $32,380 (front-wheel drive) and $34,080 (all-wheel drive). There’s a $1,290 option for the Sport Package.

The Touring will cost $35,330 (front-wheel drive) and $37,130 (all-wheel drive). The Touring Premium Package will add $2,390 for both trims. The Grand Touring costs $40,840 (front-wheel drive) and $42,640 (all-wheel drive) while the Signature trim gets a price tag of $45,365 for the all-wheel drive.

The available color options for the all-wheel drive are Soul Red Crystal ($595), Machine Gray Metallic ($300), and Snowflake White Pearl Mica ($200).
