Skoda is launching the new Kamiq in the United Kingdom, with first deliveries to start in November.
The safety organization also tested the new CLA, Audi A1, BMW Z4, Skoda Kamiq, SsangYong Korando and Ford Focus.
Skoda will launch its new ‘iV’ e-mobility sub-brand at the German event that opens on Tuesday.
Deliveries of the new range-topper in Kamiq’s range will start in the fourth quarter, with pricing to be announced closer to its on-sale date.
The Scala and the Kamiq are the first Skoda models to offer wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support.
Despite being Skoda’s first entry into a very hot niche, the Kamiq establishes itself as a top runner.
The Kamiq has already gone on sale in several European markets, with a base price of €17,950 in Germany .
The compact hatchback and subcompact SUV get sportier looks but no extra go.
The Kamiq is the carmaker’s entry into the highly-competitive European subcompact SUV segment.
The Skoda Vision GT design study will morph into a production model before the end of 2019.
The Euro-spec Kamiq comes exclusively with front-wheel drive and will premiere at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show.
Not to be confused with its Chinese namesake, the Kamiq shares underpinnings with the VW T-Cross and Seat Arona.
