Skoda reveals Kamiq ahead of global premier at Geneva Motor Show

first_imgCzech carmaker Skoda has released several photographs of the Kamiq ahead of the compact SUV’s global premier at the Geneva Motor Show. Based on the modular transverse matrix, the vehicle continues the design language from the company’s other two SUVs — the Kodiaq and the Karoq. Skoda KamiqThe Kamiq’s front is characterized by a wide radiator grille with double slats and distinct lines on the bonnet. The front spoiler emphasizes the compact SUV’s off-road character. It gets an elevated bonnet and wheels measuring 16 to 18 inches. There are split LED headlights with DRLs. Skoda KamiqThe compact SUV comes in with c-shaped taillights at the rear. The full-LED version also features fog lights with static cornering lights as well as dynamic front and rear indicators.”With the Skoda Kamiq, we have rigorously advanced our successful SUV design language and come up with a car that is very powerful and emotive, despite its compact dimensions. The Kamiq is immediately recognizable as a member of the Skoda SUV family thanks to its large, upright radiator grille, the distinct lines on the bonnet and the crystalline headlights. However, new highlights such as the daytime running lights above the headlights further reiterate an independent and unique identity,” Head of Skoda Design Oliver Stefani said in a statement.

A character line surrounding the freestanding 9.2-inch touchscreen, which is positioned high in the driver’s field of vision, reflects the lines of the bonnet.
