A new crossover with a price of up to 1,000,000 rubles Skoda Kamiq (Shkoda Kamik) is officially presented at the auto show in Beijing on April 23, 2020. In our review of Skoda Kamiq 2019-2020 – the first news and photos, price and configuration, technical specifications of the new budget crossover from the company Skoda Auto for the Chinese market. According to preliminary information, sales of the budget new product Skoda Kamiq (Skoda Kamik) in the Middle Kingdom will start in the autumn of this year 2020 at a price of 90,000 yuan (about 14,000 dollars). In addition to the Chinese market, a new subcompact crossover Kamiq from Skoda may appear in India, but in Russia it will not be sold exactly.
The Czech crossover Skoda Kamiq is built on a new modular MQB platform, and more correctly – on its budget version with a front independent suspension (McPherson strut) and a rear semi-independent suspension (torsion beam). The drive is by default front, so the novelty can only be called a crossover, and in fact we have an elevated station wagon with increased ground clearance and appearance that strongly resembles the hatchback Skoda Rapid Spaceback . However, the body of Skoda Kamik with original proportions and larger (especially in length, 86 mm) than the body of the 5-door hatchback Skoda Rapid Spiceback.
- The external overall dimensions of the body of the Skoda Kamiq 2019-2020 are 4390 mm in length, 1781 mm in width, 1593 mm (with roof rails of 1606 mm) in height, with 2610 mm of wheelbase and 175 mm of ground clearance.
The budget front-wheel crossover Skoda Kamik demonstrates the modern, stylish and strict exterior design of the body, decided in the family style of the Skoda Auto models. The novelty looks quite simple, and even it can be said, fresh. Particularly striking details on the body of the Czech budget crossover, which can attract attention, simply do not exist. Everything is simple, strict and concise.
The front part of the body with a neat falshradiator grille, a few intricate headlights (dipped headlights, halogen lamps, LED strokes of daytime running lights) and a powerful bumper with a massive plastic lip and LED fog lights.
On the side, the body of the new Skoda demonstrates the classic proportions of a compact crossover with compact overhangs, a moderately long bonnet, a practically flat roofline draining through the fifth door with a strong inclination for frying someone, doors with a high window sill, body sides decorated with charismatic ribs and athletic vyshtampovkami, and large notches of wheel arches.
The rear part of the body of the Skoda Kamiq also looks simple and traditional: the tailgate with horizontal lines, vyshtampovkami and dome lights, a glass crowned with a spoiler, a powerful bumper.
Despite the fact that the novelty is by default with a drive to the front wheels, and to talk about the possibility to leave the asphalted roads behind the wheel of Skoda Kamik, there is no sense, but the lower parts of the novelty’s body are generously covered with patches made of non-colored plastic that protects the body from undesirable damages. The lower parts of the front and rear bumper, the edges of wheel arches, thresholds and even the lower parts of the side doors in plastic armor.
Salon of the new Czech budget crossover Skoda Kamiq is also simple, laconic and budgetary, like the body of the car, even though the interior of the expensive bundle of new items is in front of us. In the presence of a simple, analog instruments with a monochrome on-board computer screen, a steering wheel from Skoda Fabia , but there is a multimedia complex with an 8.0-inch display and climate control. Finishing materials, of course, are also inexpensive and budgetary (hard plastic throughout the salon, fabric on the chairs). However, as an option, there are sports seats for the driver and front passenger with a high backrest and integrated headrests and leather trim.
