The new Skoda Kamiq SUV will make its debut at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show.
Czech automaker, Skoda is gearing up to unveil the all-new Kamiq compact SUV at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show in March. The company has also released two exclusive design sketches of the Skoda Kamiq SUV revealing its first look. To be positioned below the Karoq, the small SUV will challenge the likes of Hyundai Creta and Ford EcoSport in global markets.
Design inspiration for the Kamiq will come from Skoda Vision X concept, which was previewed at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. It is expected to make its India debut at the 2020 Delhi Auto Expo. Ahead of the Geneva debut, the Skoda Kamiq makes its appearance on South African roads. The spy video reveals that the Skoda Kamiq shares styling cues with the Karoq and Kodiaq. It comes with split-headlight design, which we have seen on the Hyundai Kona.
The Skoda Kamiq is built on the MQB AO platform that also underpins the Volkswagen T-Cross and Seat Arona. The European-spec model will share engine specs with the SUV siblings, which includes a 1.0-litre TSI petrol, a 1.5-litre TSI petrol and a 1.6-litre TDI diesel.
The India-spec Skoda Kamiq SUV will be based on the heavily localised MQB AO IN platform, which will also underpin the Volkswagen T-Cross. This platform will also underpin 2 new mid-sized sedans. Similar to the T-Cross, the Skoda Kamiq is expected to arrive in two versions – the European model and a long wheelbase version for the developing nations.
