A few weeks ago, Skoda auto revealed the official sketch of Kamiq, their smallest SUV till date. Kamiq will debut in this year’s Geneva Motor Show in March. Now, ahead of the official debut, Skoda Kamiq has been snapped testing completely undisguised in Europe. The Kamiq is based on the Volkswagen group’s MQB-A0 platform.
This is also a notable car for Skoda in India as it will be the first car under the Volkswagen’s India 2.0 Initiative, led by Skoda. The Indian spec car will be based on the MQB A0 IN platform. It is a localized and reworked platform for the Indian market.
Skoda Kamiq design elements
From the spy pictures, we can confirm that the Kamiq carries forward the Skoda’s unique design elements. The bonnet, for instance, carries sculpted lines at the center, a typical Skoda design language. The front grill adopts a double slat design, where the lower part has a wide air dam for the intercooler.
A first-in-Skoda feature is the two-part headlamps, with the DRLs above and headlamps below. What also seems to be unique is the quarter glass on the C pillar that appears to be camouflaged in the test cars. The car also carries a roof rail which accentuates the SUV’s stance. The roof slopes towards the rear and neatly merges into the heavily raked rear windscreen. The rear of the car features the distinct c shaped taillamp design. A simple crease runs along the shoulder line and merges into the sculpted tailgate.
Another feature we can confirm that will make into production is the Skoda lettering in the tailgate as opposed to the Skoda Logo. This is clearly evident in the pictures though it is camouflaged. The Europe spec Kamiq will get disc brakes on front and rear, while we are not sure if the India spec Kamiq will get the same.
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.
