Skoda is prepping up for the 2019 Geneva Motor Present the place the carmaker will debut the all-new Kamiq. The Kamiq is the third SUV in Skoda’s line-up after the Kodiaq and the Karoq. Of their common style, Skoda has already teased the Kamiq in design sketches and we additionally know now how the cabin will appear to be. Nevertheless, forward of the official debut, our spy sleuths have caught the production-spec Kamiq. And evidently the carmaker has expunged the sharp design particulars of the sketches and remodeled it right into a high-riding model of the Skoda Scala.
Not like the Chinese language-spec Kamiq, this Kamiq debuts a cut up headlight with daytime operating lights, a primary for Skoda. As might be seen within the prototype, there’s a LED strip atop the squared-off headlamps. The trademark Skoda double-slat ‘moustache’ grille can also be current. And the upright bonnet sports activities sharp creases so as to add character to the SUV whereas the bumper has a silver completed entrance splitter. Moreover, the Kamiq is the primary Skoda to have dynamic indicators on the entrance and rear.
The silhouette may be very Skoda-like with boxy strains and sharp creases. The rear carries comparable boomerang-shaped taillights seen on the brand new crop of Skodas. It’s barely larger than the one seen on the Scala. The raked D-pillar, shoulder line, excessive floor clearance and rugged bumpers give the Kamiq a correct SUV stance. As talked about earlier, the Kamiq can also be the primary product from the carmaker to bear the ‘SKODA’ lettering in the course of the tailgate as a substitute of the brand.
Based mostly on the identical MQB (modular transverse matrix platform), the Kamiq shares its underpinning with the Kodiaq and Karoq. This versatile underpinning will permit class-leading house effectivity and light-weight but inflexible dynamics, claims the carmaker. Underneath the hood would be the identical alternative of engines as the brand new Scala. Which implies there can be 1.0-litre three-cylinder and 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol and diesel motors with a alternative of handbook and automated transmissions.
Following the debut on the Geneva stage on 5 March, the Kamiq will go on sale later this yr. It may also make its approach to India as part of the German carmaker’s India 2.0 technique.
