- Skoda’s smallest SUV
- Nissan Juke-sized
- Sits beneath the Karoq and Kodiaq SUVs
Coming soon: 2019 Skoda Kamiq
Skoda’s smallest SUV has been revealed at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. It’s a similar size to a Nissan Juke.
The Kamiq, which is the third and smallest of Skoda’s SUVs – sitting below the
Karoq and Kodiaq – gets its name from the language of the Inuit people who live in northern Canada and Greenland, and means something that fits perfectly.
Being a small SUV means the Kamiq will have a raised seating position and higher ground clearance, but won’t take up more room on the road than a hatchback.
The Kamiq follows on from the Vision X concept Skoda debuted at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show.
Inside, there’s a large 10.25-inch virtual cockpit, and up to 9.2-inch touchscreen. Skoda has also added a heated steering
wheel, windscreen, front and rear seats.
The boot size is 400-litres with the seats up, which increases to 1,395-litres when the rear seats are folded down.
Skoda will also offer a 1.6-litre diesel engine with 115 horsepower. That comes with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, or a seven-speed automatic gearbox available as an option.
Also on the options list is a Crew Protect Assist which closes open windows and pretensions the front seat belts if it senses a collision, and a Multi-Collision Brake system prevents the vehicle from rolling any further in an uncontrolled manner. On top of that, there’s an advanced blind spot detection which can detect cars planning to overtake, rear-view camera, park assist, manoeuvre assist, and auto light assist.
The Skoda Kamiq is expected to go on sale towards the end of 2019.
