Skoda reveals interior picture of new Kamiq crossover

Published 06 February 2019

Skoda has teased its new Kamiq crossover ahead of its reveal at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show.

The new Skoda Kamiq will sit below the Karoq in the firm's range, rivalling the likes of the Nissan Juke and Hyundai Kona - as well as in-house models such as the SEAT Arona and upcoming Volkswagen T-Cross.

The latest picture to be released is of the interior, which features a large and high set multimedia display on the dashboard. This is expected to be standard on high-spec models, while smaller alternatives will be offered further down the range.

There's also an optional 10.25-inch Virtual Cockpit in place of conventional dials behind the steering wheel, while ambient lighting in copper, red or white will (Skoda says) give the Kamiq an upmarket cabin feel.

Despite sharing a platform with the SEAT Arona and Volkswagen T-Cross, the Kamiq has a slightly longer wheelbase which is expected to result in more room for passengers in the rear. Boot space is a useful 400-litres - the same as the Arona - increasing to 1395 once you fold the rear seats.

Skoda is yet to confirm the engine line-up for the Kamiq, but we'd expect the usual Volkswagen Group mix of 1.0- and 1.5-litre petrols as well as a 1.6-litre diesel, along with a choice of a manual or DSG automatic gearbox.

The word Kamiq comes from the language of the Inuit people living in northern Canada and Greenland. It describes something that fits as perfectly as a second skin in every situation.

Prices are also yet to be announced, but expect it to start close to the £17,145 SEAT Arona when orders open later in 2019.

Crikey, the exterior must be really bland if that's the best image they have. Where has the flair of design gone? Just another VAG bland photocopy. Seems like someone at Skoda used the "black and white" copy button instead of the colour one on the machine.

Yes, the design studios seem to leave the cockpit styling to the office junior, or a bored teenager on work experience. Very few cars, certainly at the popular end, have an interior worth a second glance (the Fiat 500 being a worthy exception).
