Despite its small appearance, the two-seater KARO offers comfortable space for two grown-ups and their luggae: with its trunk volume of 280 liters and a maximum payload of up to 200 kilograms, the KARO handles (almost) every shopping trip. And if you happen to still have space left, open the soft top and let the sun ride shotgun.

Thanks to its space-saving shape, the KARO breaks with all the inconveniences of a traditional side door: With a width of less than 1,5 meters and less than 2,5 meters in length, the KARO conquers every little parking space. The easy entry and exit through the car's front door even enables cross-parking in the direction of the sidewalk.

Ride in the Green Lane

Driving pleasure and prestige don’t require a lot of horsepower nor a loud appearance. With its top speed of 90 km/h The KARO enables agile and fun mobility in cities as well as in rural areas. The KARO is even faster that its historical predecessor. That's a pole position at every traffic light. With its sprinter qualities, the KARO quickly navigates through any hopeless traffic.
