The city SUV, the Skoda Kamiq, celebrated its world premiere on 23 April 2018 at the Skoda International Media Workshop at the Czech Embassy in Beijing. Following on from the Skoda Kodiaq and the Skoda Karoq, the new SUV is to become the 3rd member of the Skoda SUV household. The Skoda Kamiq is carefully continuing the powerful Skoda SUV style language and impresses with modern technology and an expressive style. Instantly after the world premiere, Skoda will provide the Kamiq to the general public at the ‘Auto China 2018’ in Beijing.
2019 Skoda Kamiq Design
The new 2019 Skoda Kamiq integrates compact dimensions and a surprisingly spacious interior. The body is 4,390 mm long, 1,781 mm large and 1,593 mm high. The wheelbase is 2,610 mm. The car is equipped with an all-new 1.5-litre petrol engine that produces a power output of 81 kW and torque of approximately 150 Nm. The engine’s power is transferred through an automated transmission.
The 2019 Skoda Kamiq’s style comes with all the features of Skoda’s powerful SUV style language. The typical radiator grille with its vertical double slats is an unmistakeable expression of Skoda’s DNA. Lines in the crystalline headlights flow into the lines of the grille, providing the Kamiq a strong look. The exact, sharply cut tornado line provides a three-dimensional look and, together with the 17-inch double five-spoke alloy wheels, produces a sporty profile. The crystalline tail lights are positioned horizontally. This and the external position of the reflectors make the SUV appear broader.
2019 Skoda Kamiq Interior
The robust style also continues in the interior. Thanks to the raised infotainment display screen in the centre of the control panel, the driver can operate numerous vehicle functions with excellent ease and convenience. A chrome trim encountering the whole width of the control panel stylishly links its parts. One efficient information is the innovative, angled installation of the speakers. Due to their ergonomic design, the driver and front guest seat deal outstanding comfort and lateral support. The seat covers come in a plaid pattern with 3D result, which further enhances the modern-day feel of the interior.
2019 Skoda Kamiq Features
The 2019 Skoda Kamiq is focused on young, city consumers who want to keep their digital lifestyle even whilst on the go in their car and who desire modern connectivity options. Therefore, the new SUV is geared up with a smart connectivity system that has actually been recently developed by Skoda. The technological highlight of the system is the voice control from iFLYTEK, one of Asia’s leading companies of voice acknowledgment based upon expert system. The software application comprehends regional Chinese dialects and can even learn private and local language designs instantly. Mobile phones can be linked through Apple CarPlay, Baidu Carlife and MirrorLink ™ user interfaces; compatible apps are operated on the eight-inch screen with a resolution of 1,280 x 720. In addition, the connectivity system also offers numerous useful services such as a guide for limitations based upon number plates, real-time traffic info, weather condition info and POI alerts.
