Skoda has published computer sketches of its new compact crossover for the European market. It will be called Kamiq, and its premiere will take place at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
Judging by the images, the crossover will be significantly different from the model with the same name sold in China, which was revealed in the spring of 2018. The European Skoda Kamiq will receive a completely different front with a radiator grille and dual main optics in the style of the Vision X concept model presented on exhibition in Geneva a year ago.
At the core of the Skoda Kamiq is a variation of the modular platform MQB-A0, which is at the heart of the Seat Arona and Volkswagen T-Cross models. This means that the crossover will be about 4.2 meters long, 1.75 meters wide and 1.6 meters high.
It is assumed that Skoda Kamiq range of engines will repeat Volkswagen T-Cross. These are a 3-cylinder gasoline turbo engine developing 95 hp and 115 hp as well as a 1.5-liter 4-cylinder engine that develops 150 hp. The diesel engine range will be 1.6-liter with 95 hp. The base variants will receive a 5-speed mechanical gearbox and the other 6 or 7-speed robotic DSG.
