- Skoda extending its SUV range with a third model for the European market
- Global debut to take place at Geneva Motor Show in March
- The name comes from the language of the people of northern Canada and Greenland
Skoda’s all-new SUV is now officially called the Kamiq. The crossover is the third SUV for the European market, after the Kodiaq and the Karoq. The word Kamiq comes from the language of the Inuit people living in northern Canada and Greenland.
The name Kamiq is already established as the name of a model in China and according to Skoda, is therefore suited to the new crossover model. At the same time, the designation falls within the nomenclature linking all models in the SUV model range – the names of all current SUV models start with a K and end with a Q.
The Kamiq will be based on the modular transverse matrix platform which will allow for class-leading space efficiency and lightweight yet rigid underpinnings. Stay tuned for full details as we get closer to the official unveiling which is set in March 2019 during the Geneva Motor Show.
