In India, the Skoda Kamiq will take on Hyundai Creta and Nissan Kicks.
Skoda Kamiq, the premium SUV from the Czech Republic carmaker, has finally made its global debut at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show. In the company’s product lineup, this new SUV will sit below the Karoq. The Kamiq is Skoda’s smallest SUV that will make its way to India sometime in 2020. Here, it will gun up straight against the Hyundai Creta and the newly-launched Nissan Kicks.
While the global version Skoda Kamiq is based on the VW Group’s MQB AO platform, the India-spec model will be built on a heavily localized MQB AO IN architecture. The latter one will also be used in the new-generation Skoda Rapid sedan. Read: Skoda Kamiq – 5 Interesting Facts
