Students of the Czech brand have developed a cross-cabriolet Sunroq, created on the basis of the serial model Karoq

Skoda introduced the conceptual Cabriolet Sunroq, created on the basis of the crossover Karoq. 23 students of the school Skoda took part in the car development project in the Czech city of Mlada Boleslav.

Work on the car began in October 2017, when a group of students led by their teachers began to create a cross-cabriolet design. The final draft was approved in January this year.

Skoda Sunroq retained the dimensions of the original model, lost the roof, but at the same time retained the rear doors. However, the concept car turned out to be below the standard crossover, as the developers used sports shock absorbers from Skoda Octavia RS.

Plus, the shape of the front pillars and door handles has been changed. Finally, the concept car was used special illumination, projecting the company’s emblems on the ground in the dark.

The cross-cabriolet was equipped with a 1.5-liter supercharged engine, the power of which is not specified. The motor allows the car to accelerate from place to 100 km / h in 8.4 seconds. The maximum speed is 204 km per hour.

Concept car Skoda Sunroq will be the fifth project, the work on which was entrusted to students of the Czech brand school. For example, in 2017, students developed a special version of the compact car Citigo, which turned into an electric beach buggy.
