Skoda Kamiq Monte Carlo Debuts With Sporty Look Ahead Of Frankfurt Show Premiere

After the (now discontinued) Yeti, the new Kamiq has become Skoda’s second SUV to get the Monte Carlo trim.

Joining the recently unveiled Scala Monte Carlo at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show on September 10, the range-topping variant of the subcompact SUV will become available in the entire engine lineup, with deliveries set to commence in the fourth quarter of the year.

Boasting a sportier styling, the new Kamiq Monte Carlo is defined by the glossy black frame surrounding the grille. The accents extend to the front bumper, side mirror caps, side sills, roof rails, diffuser and ‘Skoda’ lettering on the tailgate. Completing the revised looks are the LED taillights and standard 17- or optional 18-inch alloy wheels.

A special look has been given to the interior, with the addition of front sports seats, red accents, ‘Kamiq’ door sills and red LED ambient lighting. The steering wheel, gear selector and handbrake lever are wrapped in perforated leather and Skoda has also added aluminum pedals, chrome look for the air vents, black roof lining and special floor mats.

It also gets standard tinted rear windows and a panoramic roof. Although pricing and full specs will be announced closer to its on-sale date, the Monte Carlo will be the new top spec, so it might also feature gear such as a fully customizable 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, as well as Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, MirrorLink and a wireless charging pad.

    They can put nice wheels and some black trims on it whatever they like, but it will never be a sporty looking car. It’s just like a fat cyclist wearing spandex

      It’s barely any bigger than a regular hatchback, just with s bit more ground clearance.

        That is my point exactly which I intercede as much as I can. These “SUV” are just hatchbacks with some more ground clearance and 15%-30% higher price tag. Economically it doesn’t have any sense. But people are buying it nonetheless.
