› Choice of four infotainment systems with touchscreens of up to 9.2 inches
› Digital instrument panel with an 8- or 10.25-inch display
› Permanent internet connection enables access to ŠKODA Connect online services
Mladá Boleslav, 4 April 2022 – The KAROQ is going fully digital later this year when it will be sold with a digital instrument panel only. The Virtual Cockpit (as the digital instrument cluster is also referred to) features an 8‑inch display as standard; a larger screen measuring 10.25 inches is optional. Thanks to a built-in eSIM, the SUV is always online, which enables access to a plethora of ŠKODA Connect mobile online services. Infotainment apps provide weather forecasts and the latest news, and include calendar management.
In addition to the entry-level Swing radio with a 6.5-inch display, there is a choice of three additional systems from Volkswagen Group’s third-generation modular infotainment matrix. They all offer digital DAB radio and thanks to a built-in eSIM, they are always online. Both the Bolero and Amundsen systems feature an 8-inch touchscreen and can receive web radio (as an option) thanks to the permanent internet connection. Both systems can be operated via their touchscreen, buttons and knurled wheels on the multifunction steering wheel, and the digital voice assistant Laura, who – backed by online data – understands 15 languages. The Amundsen system also offers a navigation function and a Wi-Fi hotspot. The range-topping system, Columbus, features a 9.2-inch display and can be controlled using gestures. Map and software updates are installed ‘over the air’.
