Skoda Kamiq Revealed For Indian Market

  • Feb 27, 2019

The Indian-spec Skoda Kamiq, which is scheduled to debut at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show in March, has been revealed by the automaker. Positioned below the Karoq SUV and the Kodiaq, the new compact SUV is expected to go on sale in the country by late 2020.

The Skoda Kamiq uses the new MQB A0 platform and comes with the longest wheelbase in the Indian compact SUV segment. The Kamiq measures 4241mm in length, 1793mm in width and 1531mm in height, which makes it the smallest SUV in the segment. The Skoda Kamiq comes with foldable rear seats that let you extend the 400-litre boot space to 1395 litres. Moreover, the co-passenger seat can also be folded, allowing to equip goods up to 2447mm. This feature, though, comes as an option.

The design of the Kamiq clearly looks inspired from its elder siblings, the Kodiaq and the Karoq. The Kamiq SUV gets the signature Skoda front grille that comes garnished in chrome and LED headlamps that get a unique placement in the front bumper just below the LED DRLs. The LED DRLs also function as turn signals.

The sides are dominated with a sharp shoulder line, similar to the ones on its siblings. Additionally, it gets 18-inch alloys, which we believe won’t come to India. The India-spec model will get 17-inch alloy wheels. At the back, the Kamiq gets C-shaped LED taillamps, a sharp tailgate and silver inserts on the bumper that make it up for a sporty rear profile.

The interiors are like the Skoda Scala, which broke cover last year. The dash is laid out cleanly, with a 9.2-inch floating touchscreen infotainment system at the centre. Additionally, there is a 10.25-inch fully-digital instrument cluster that aggrandizes the cabin. In India, we expect the Kamiq to have an 8-inch touchscreen instead of the above-mentioned one.

The company has blessed it with plenty of safety features, including Lane Assist and Front Assist that gets city emergency braking and predictive pedestrian protection. Optional adaptive cruise control is also on offer. Adding to the safety department are features like ABS with EBD, traction control, blind spot detection system, rear traffic alert, handsfree parking, 9 airbags, ESP and rear parking camera with sensors. Not all features will be equipped in the India-spec model.
