is adding a third model to its European SUV portfolio: the Skoda Kamiq. The car
will be show at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show to be held from March 7 to March 17,
2019 (Press days March 5 and 6).
with the successful Skoda Kodiaq and Karoq, the name Kamiq also originates from
the language of the Inuit people who live in northern Canada and Greenland: it
means something that fits perfectly. Sitting in the growing city SUV segment,
the Skoda Kamiq perfectly combines the advantages of a sport utility vehicle –
such as higher ground clearance and a comfortable seating position – with the
agility of a compact car. With an emotive design, state-of-the-art assistance
and infotainment systems, a generous amount of space and numerous Simply Clever
features, the new Kamiq equally fulfils the needs of both family- and
new Skoda SUV is the brand’s first model to feature split LED headlights with
daytime running lights that, in the full-LED version, appear like four
gemstones above the main headlights. Three-dimensional
and crystalline effects as well as LED units that look like glistening jewels
add to the sophisticated appearance. The full-LED version also features
fog lights with static cornering lights as well as – for the first time in a Skoda
– dynamic front and rear indicators. The front indicators are divided into
individual LEDs. When the driver turns the indicators on, they flash outwards
in a sweeping motion.

cylinder capacity of 1.0 l, this three-cylinder model produces maximum torque
