Skoda’s entry-level SUV goes official in China.
Back in January this year, we brought you some leaked images of the upcoming Skoda Kamiq. Now, Skoda has officially revealed its smallest SUV in China.
This model has been created for the Chinese market and is a key element of the brand's expansion strategy in the country. The Skoda Kamiq, which will be on sale within a few months, is positioned as entry level in the range below Kodiaq and Karoq. A fourth high-riding model is also expected to be introduced by the end of this year.
In terms of design, the Kamiq is unmistakably a Skoda and looks a lot like a shrunken version of the company’s bigger SUVs. The characteristic butterfly grille, which dominates the front fascia, is flanked by tweaked headlamps – which now go deeper into the bumper to merge with the grille. The overall profile of the SUV remains clean and understated.
However, the Kamiq’s interiors and full technical details have not been disclosed as of now. On the other hand, the company revealed a official sketches of the Kamiq a few days ago, revealing the SUV's interior.
As expected, powertrain options are still a mystery, but rumours have previously claimed that the Kamiq will draw its power from a 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine, making 110bhp. Whether the Kamiq will receive an all wheel drive system is not known.
