    Skoda Configurator suggests it comes with Panoramic Sunroof and Virtual Cockpit as standard. Rang a Skoda dealership and they said it’s extra charge for the sunroof and the package for virtual cockpit? Made it clear I was enquiring about the sportline trim.

    Anyone know if this is true or not?

    The 19″ Sagitarius alloys are a little odd.

    From watching various videos they appear to be diamond cut, but they look to have hub caps that clip on and give the impression that the space in-between the spokes is textured, and they hide the wheel nuts too.

    Yeah, no idea.

    The Sportsline does definitely not come with the Virtual Cockpit (it’s part of the £600 Amundsen Plus package, as well as the £1400 upgraded Columbus package which is the 9.2″ screen + virtual cockpit).

    I can’t actually find the Panorama Sunroof in the options list, so that might be in the Sportsline spec. The Virtual Cockpit definitely isn’t, says “optional” on the description page for the spec, too.

    Highlight of the Spec would probably the Pano roof if it is indeed included, as well as the included Matrix LED Headlights (my guess is that it’s VWs IQ Light).

    That all said.. Skoda isn’t known for generous trims. Even in top trim, the Karoq is still missing the virtual cockpit (standard in all comparable VW and SEAT models, £600 at least in the Karoq), no adaptive cruise control (standard in all comparable VW and even SEAT models), no “Travel Assist” (wouldn’t need it anyway, but again, standard in comparable VWs and SEATs, £1500 in the Karoq) etc.

    Good looking car, and well put together, but certainly not a deal.

    Why are these 3 sportline trim models currently showing on the Motability live search then?

    Odd thing is I asked Skoda directly a couple of years back if they intended to add the Sportline trim to the scheme, and at that point at least they had no plans to add it at all.

    Times change eh.

    With the VRS specs of the Kodiaq and Karoq coming through, perhaps that’s led to Skoda relaxing a little on making the Sportline spec available through the scheme?

    I took the plunge today and ordered the 4×4 tsi sport line in grey, looks the part.made an appointment but the disability sales man past me on to another rep and his first words was you won’t get any sport line on Motability.it went down hill from here but I was adamant on getting this car ordered.as me and the misses are both in wheelchairs, we decided to try an suv for another option of car as we usually drive estates but there becoming less choice these days.was origanly going to try the Kodiaq but its huge, cant see the wife getting in it so the koroq seemed the perfect choice.exsspensive but there was no options missing and told me if I wait till September I would get the new reg.seems like things are starting to get better.cancelled the 308 estate last week, things missing, big deposit, too small inside.so I had a big smile on the inside today ordering this.not had that feeling in a long time.so if anyone is thinking of getting one its a nice car.it doesn’t have remote seats but to be honest I find the too slow when getting in and out.comes with panoramic sunroof and remote boot.fingers crossed it turns up in September.

    Excellent news. Is it this very pale grey by any chance. I’ve never been drawn to this kind of grey, but I do think it looks the muts on the Sportline with the black badging :

    Looks superb man, it’s a very muscular design. Love the seats?Sat in one a couple of years back, very comfy.

    Love the black headlining too.

    Hope it has the 19″ Sagitarius alloys as standard, the ones in the video, they look the business and have the choice of plastic aero caps on or off

    I think having them off looks spot on, again as shown in the video, but you get the choice.

    Well done 👏

    What did you think of the rear seats if you had a chance to take a look at these, do they seem spacious enough to fit a baby seat along with 2 Adults?
