- The Kamiq looks like a scaled down Kodiaq in the sketches.
Skoda Kamiq is the third new SUV in the carmaker’s growing portfolio. Ahead of the Kamiq's official debut at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show in March, Skoda has teased this all-new SUV in design sketches.
Unlike the Chinese-spec Kamiq, which has been on sale for a year already, the upcoming Kamiq debuts a split headlight with daytime running lights. As can be seen in the sketch, there is a sleek LED strip atop the squared-off headlamps, flanking Skoda’s trademark double-slat ‘moustache’ grille. The upright bonnet sports sharp creases to add character to the SUV while the bumper has a silver finished front splitter. Additionally, the Kamiq is the first Skoda to have dynamic indicators at the front and rear.
The rear carries similar boomerang-shaped taillights seen on the new crop of Skodas. The raked D-pillar, sharp shoulder line, high ground clearance and rugged bumpers will give the Kamiq a proper SUV stance claims the Czech carmaker. The Skoda Kamiq is also the first product from the carmaker to bear the ‘SKODA’ lettering in the middle of the tailgate instead of the logo.
The Kamiq is based on the same MQB (modular transverse matrix platform) as the Kodiaq and Karoq. This versatile underpinning will allow class-leading space efficiency and lightweight yet rigid dynamics. The powertrain will include both petrol and diesel motors with a choice of manual and automatic transmissions. In the run-up to the official debut, more details will be teased in the coming weeks by the carmaker. So stay tuned for in-depth details as we get closer to the official unveiling which is set for 5 March on the Geneva stage.
