The Skoda Sunroq Is What Happens When Young People Redesign Cars – With A Saw

The Skoda Karoq is definitely on the rational side in the pecking order of cars. At least until the Czech brand let their own design students loose on it with some cutting tools to create this – the Skoda Sunroq.

SO, IT’S A SKODA KAROQ CONVERTIBLE?

Yes, in a way – dubbed the Sunroq (you see what they did there), it’s the result of this year’s Skoda Azubi project.

This is where design students at Skoda’s Mlada Boleslav HQ can let their creativity flow with one of the Czech carmakers existing models – to create anything they like. This Sunroq started life as a regular SUV with a roof and all, until the youngsters exacted their devious plans with a very large hacksaw and gallons of bright red paint.



The Sunroq started life as a standard 1.5-litre petrol-powered Karoq, before the roof and rear hatch were binned. The A-pillar was restyled and a rather odd looking rear bootlid added – ensuring permanent sunlight.

LOTS OF DETAILS NOT COMING TO A DEALER NEAR YOU ANYTIME SOON

The youths also went all out on the details as well. On the inside there’s a bevy of tasteful white/red leather bucket seats, an illuminated Skoda badge on the bonnet and even backlit wheels complementing the very red paintwork.

NONE OF WHICH WILL BE COMING TO A SKODA DEALER NEAR YOU


A spokesperson from the team of 23 students responsible for the Sunroq said: “Our main ambition has been to build a sports car that will mesmerise the younger generation at first sight. And we think we achieved that very well.”

For their considerable efforts, we wholeheartedly applaud them because the Sunroq looks like tons of open-roofed fun – all the while being vastly better looking than other efforts including the Nissan Leaf Open, or the Range Rover Evoque convertible.
