The metropolitan SUV, the Skoda Kamiq, celebrated its world premiere on 23 April 2018 at the Skoda International Media Workshop at the Czech Embassy in Beijing. Following on from the Skoda Kodiaq and the Skoda Karoq, the new SUV is to end up being the 3rd member of the Skoda SUV household. The Skoda Kamiq is carefully continuing the effective Skoda SUV design language and impresses with contemporary technology and an expressive design. Instantly after the opening night, Skoda will provide the Kamiq to the general public at the ‘Auto China 2018’ in Beijing.
2019 Skoda Kamiq Design
The new 2019 Skoda Kamiq combines compact dimensions and a surprisingly spacious interior. The body is 4,390 mm long, 1,781 mm broad and 1,593 mm high. The wheelbase is 2,610 mm. The car is geared up with a brand new 1.5-litre petrol engine that produces a power output of 81 kW and torque of approximately 150 Nm. The engine’s power is sent by means of an automated gearbox.
The 2019 Skoda Kamiq’s style includes all the features of Skoda’s effective SUV design language. The typical radiator grille with its vertical double slats is an unmistakeable expression of Skoda’s DNA. Lines in the crystalline headlights flow into the lines of the grille, lending the Kamiq a vibrant look. The exact, dramatically cut tornado line provides a three-dimensional appearance and, together with the 17-inch double five-spoke alloy wheels, develops a sporty side view. The crystalline tail lights are positioned horizontally. This and the outward position of the reflectors make the SUV appear wider.
2019 Skoda Kamiq Interior
The robust style likewise continues in the interior. Thanks to the raised infotainment screen in the centre of the control panel, the chauffeur can operate numerous vehicle functions with great ease and convenience. A chrome trim encountering the entire width of the control panel stylishly links its components. One reliable detail is the innovative, angled installation of the speakers. Due to their ergonomic style, the motorist and front passenger seat offer excellent convenience and lateral support. The seat covers come in a plaid pattern with 3D effect, which even more improves the contemporary feel of the interior.
2019 Skoda Kamiq Features
The 2019 Skoda Kamiq is focused on young, urban customers who wish to keep their digital way of life even whilst on the go in their car and who prefer contemporary connectivity services. For that reason, the new SUV is equipped with a smart connectivity system that has been newly developed by Skoda. The technological highlight of the system is the voice control from iFLYTEK, one of Asia’s leading companies of voice recognition based on artificial intelligence. The software application understands local Chinese dialects and can even learn specific and regional language styles immediately. Mobile phones can be linked through Apple CarPlay, Baidu Carlife and MirrorLink ™ user interfaces; compatible apps are run on the eight-inch screen with a resolution of 1,280 x 720. In addition, the connectivity system also offers many practical services such as a guide for restrictions based upon number plates, real-time traffic information, weather information and POI notifications.
