The metropolitan 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 third member of the Skoda SUV household. The Skoda Kamiq is carefully continuing the effective Skoda SUV style language and impresses with contemporary technology and an expressive style. Immediately after the opening night, Skoda will present the Kamiq to the public at the ‘Auto China 2018’ in Beijing.
2019 Skoda Kamiq Design
The new 2019 Skoda Kamiq integrates compact dimensions and a surprisingly large interior. The body is 4,390 mm long, 1,781 mm wide 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 as much as 150 Nm. The engine’s power is sent through an automatic transmission.
The 2019 Skoda Kamiq’s style comes with all the features of Skoda’s powerful SUV style language. The normal 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 vibrant appearance. The accurate, dramatically cut tornado line provides a three-dimensional appearance 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 outward position of the reflectors make the SUV appear wider.
2019 Skoda Kamiq Interior
The robust design also continues in the interior. Thanks to the raised infotainment display in the centre of the control panel, the motorist can operate many vehicle functions with terrific ease and comfort. A chrome trim running across the whole width of the dashboard stylishly connects its parts. One reliable detail is the ingenious, angled setup of the speakers. Due to their ergonomic design, the driver and front traveler seat offer outstanding convenience and lateral support. The seat covers come in a plaid pattern with 3D result, which further improves the modern feel of the interior.
2019 Skoda Kamiq Features
The 2019 Skoda Kamiq is targeted at young, urban clients who want to preserve their digital lifestyle even whilst on the go in their car and who prefer modern-day connectivity options. Therefore, the new SUV is geared up with an intelligent connectivity system that has been newly developed by Skoda. The technological emphasize of the system is the voice control from iFLYTEK, one of Asia’s leading providers of voice acknowledgment based on artificial intelligence. The software comprehends local Chinese dialects and can even learn individual and local language styles immediately. Mobile phones can be connected by means of Apple CarPlay, Baidu Carlife and MirrorLink ™ user interfaces; compatible apps are run on the eight-inch screen with a resolution of 1,280 x 720. In addition, the connectivity system also supplies many useful services such as a guide for limitations based on number plates, real-time traffic details, weather info and POI alerts.
