Another teaser of the Skoda Kamiq has been released before its debut at the 2020 Auto Expo, disclosing important features of the new SUV.
The Skoda Kamiq has already been launched in China and is underpinned by the older PQ-series chassis, while the new Skoda Kamiq for Europe will borrow the newer MQB A0 platform, the engine and quite a few design cues from the Volkswagen T-Cross which was debuted earlier.
Previously, we have shown you a teaser with shows the sketches of the Skoda Kamiq SUV front. Now another tease has been released, which displayed its features more clearly. Firstly, watch this video.
Being the smallest SUV of Skoda, the Kamiq is positioned below the Karoq. The teaser discloses an array of features that we can anticipate for the production model. The most prominent features are the split headlamps with DRLs and indicators above. The conventional Skoda logo and the typical grille remind us of those on the Karoqand the Kodiaq. Coming to the rear, you can realize angular and polishing tail lamps. Most of the other exterior features will be similar to the Skoda Vision X Concept.
The Skoda Kamiq will get some design features from the Vision X Concept
The Skoda Kamiq is anticipated to measure 4,250 mm in length; 1,500 mm in height and 1,800 mm in width with a 2,645 mm wheelbase. With these generous dimensions, the small Kamiq will be available with a segment-leading passenger and luggage room and interior convenience for both the driver and the passengers.
The new Skoda Kamiq will offer an amber cabin thanks to the generous dimensions
The Skoda Vision X Concept displayed at the 2018 Geneva motor show, on which the Skoda Kamiq will be based, is powered by a traditional 1.5L 4-cylinder petrol motor and a hybrid CNG option which can produce 131 hp against 250 Nm.
There are also two electric motors to support these previous engines: a belt-driven starter-generator which provides power for the front axle and a second unit which can produce 27 hp on the rear axle. This engine churns out a peak torque of 70 Nm from a speed of 0 kmph whereas, with a gearbox, it can deliver up to 99 Nm.
A reverse petrol motor is also available on this variant to make sure that the engine will operate in freezing weather and help the concept model cover 645 km per charge. However, it is unlikely that the European version will come with the cutting-edge G-TEC motor due to a lack of CNG infrastructure in European countries.
Instead, it will be powered by the VW’s 1.0L petrol and 1.4 L TSI motors. While in India, considering the serious air pollution, a Skoda SUV with this engine option might come as good news to the Indian auto buyers.
The new European-bound Skoda Kamiq will not take the engines from the concept model
The India-bound Skoda Kamiq will be officially debuted at the 2020 Auto Expo in the concept form. The SUV is expected to borrow its design cues from the Kamiq which will be offered in Europe in the coming time.
