Skoda recently revealed sketches of its upcoming urban SUV, The Kamiq. The Skoda Kamiq will be the smallest SUV from the Czech carmaker and will debut in the upcoming Geneva Motorshow. It will be based on the Volkswagen Group’s MQB-A0 platform. The SUV is primarily aimed at European markets, but we can expect it to reach Indian shores soon. It will be similar in dimensions to the Nissan Kicks, Hyundai Creta and the Renault Duster.
Oliver Stefani, Škoda Chief Designer said: “In our new Kamiq city SUV we’ve implemented a completely new headlamp configuration. The two-part headlamps with daytime running lights above are a first for Škoda. They give the Kamiq a unique appearance and represent another interpretation of our successful SUV design language.”
The Kamiq unmistakably looks like the scaled down version of the flagship Kodiaq SUV. The front features Skoda’s signature grill and the hood features the long sculpted lines at the centre. What is new, is, of course, the two-part headlamp with the DRLs above which is first for a Skoda car. Tata Harrier features a similar design. A wide air dam is also visible at the lower portion of the front. The headlamp lenses with crystalline effects and LED units enhance the car’s premium appeal.
The rear looks aggressive and features the re-interpretation of the classic c-shaped taillight design. Skoda also confirms that the Kamiq will get dynamic indicators on the front and the rear. Another first for the Skoda will be the Skoda lettering at the tailgate, instead of the Skoda insignia which is seen on the current cars.
The Kamiq also gets roof rail, which not only compliments the looks but could also serve for carrying some luggage. High ground clearance, large wheels and diffuser accentuate the Kamiq’s sporty appeal.
Being an international product, the Kamiq will be available with a wide range of engine and transmission options which include two diesel and three petrol engines.
