Skoda has now started heating up for the launch of the Kamiq, one special for the Chinese market destined crossover that is not part of the world coming.
In January of this year, several Chinese media portrayed images of a new, until then unknown crossover or Skoda (photo 3 and 4). The car, called Kamiq, looks like a Karoq-sized car, a car on the Chinese market only an extended version is offered. With a set of sketches, Skoda looks ahead to the newcomer. On these sketches the car looks firmer than the actual model.
The Kamiq measures 4.39 meters in length, is 1.78 meters wide and 1.59 meters high. The wheelbase is 2.61 meters. This makes the car 1 centimeter longer than the Karoq, although the wheelbase is 3 centimeters below that of that model. It is therefore a logical choice that the Karoq on the Chinese sales ladder. The car shares its basis with the Volkswagen Lavida, a car that in turn uses a modified version of Volkswagens PQ34-basis, a platform that was used by cars like the Golf IV and the first generation of the Seat Leon and the Audi A3.
The car is developed by Volkswagen in China with SAIC Motor, called Shanghai Volkswagen Automotive Company. We therefore do not have to expect the car in Europe.
