The new KAMIQ continues the successful SUV design language of the KODIAQ and KAROQ SUVs, whilst the split headlights, which feature daytime running lights above the main headlights, create new, distinctive visual highlights.
At 4,241 mm long, the ŠKODA KAMIQ is considerably more compact than both of its bigger SUV siblings. Combined with its raised seat position, this means it is perfectly equipped for the modern-day urban jungle. In typical ŠKODA style, the KAMIQ also sets benchmarks in the city SUV segment in terms of space.
Engines and chassis Three TSI petrol engines with cylinder capacities of 1.0 or 1.5 l and a 1.6-litre TDI produce between 70 and 110 kW (95 to 150 PS). The 1.0 G-TEC delivers 66 kW (90 PS) and is the first engine in a ŠKODA SUV to run on eco-friendly natural gas (CNG). The engines can be coupled with a 5- or 6-speed manual gearbox or a 7-speed DSG; they all fulfil the Euro 6d-TEMP emissions standard.
The KAMIQ features a newly developed chassis offering 39 mm more ground clearance than the SCALA. The KAMIQ can optionally be fitted with Sport Chassis Control – a 10-mm-lower sports chassis that can have its characteristics switched between Normal and Sport using Driving Mode Select.
The KAMIQ is the second ŠKODA to incorporate the new interior concept. The elevated seat position and generous amount of space in the city SUV make getting into and out of the car more convenient and provide a great overall view as well as improved ergonomics. In the rear, the KAMIQ’s headroom of 1,003 mm, elbow room of 1,425 mm and kneeroom of 73 mm are all records in the segment. The boot has a capacity of 400 l, which can be increased to 1,395 l by folding down the asymmetrically split back seat (60:40) that features an optional centre armrest.
Another option, the folding function for the front passenger seatback, enables the transport of particularly bulky items measuring up to 2,447 mm in length. Clever storage compartments in the interior provide an extra 26 l of space for stowing items.
A pleasant interior atmosphere is created by the soft materials on the dashboard and front door trims, as well as new seat designs and covers – also made of the exquisite Suedia microfibre. Should the customer wish, the KAMIQ can be further customised with ambient lighting, decorative trims, contrasting stitching and a Dynamic package.
The level of comfort can be boosted by the optional 10.25-inch Virtual Cockpit, as well as Climatronic, an electrically adjustable driver’s seat, a heated windscreen and steering wheel. The transmitter signal used by the KESSY keyless entry system automatically switches off after 15 minutes of no movement, thereby increasing security.
