After revealing the official name of their urban crossover, the Kamiq, last week, Skoda has now released two official sketches that preview its exterior design.
The front lighting signature is unique to the brand, with its horizontally split lights. The ones positioned above the headlamps serve as DRLs and are joined by dynamic turn signals at both ends and a grille with double slats that’s typical to Skoda SUVs.
Giving the profile a sporty look is the slightly lowered roofline behind the B pillars. And further back, the ‘SKODA’ lettering can be seen on the tailgate between the angular, C-shaped taillights.
Elsewhere, the Kamiq features a silver-colored scuff plate at the front and adopts a similar approach for the rear diffuser. The silver-finished roof rails and large wheels, as well as the dynamic lines that run across its length, complete the exterior look.
Based on the VW Group’s MQB A0 architecture, the Kamiq is essentially the Seat Arona’s and VW T-Cross’ Czech cousin. It will share the engine lineup with the other two B-segment SUVs, and like them, will probably stick to front-wheel drive only.
Limited to the European market, sales of the Kamiq should begin shortly after its official unveiling. Skoda has chosen the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, which kicks off on March 5, to host the public premiere of the Kamiq, but we expect more teasers, and maybe a full press release, in the meantime.
