The Czech company has published designer sketches of a new model, which will be presented in early March at the Geneva Motor Show, reports Hronika.info, citing Autoblog.
Skoda has already hinted that the look of the compact Kamiq crossover will have little to do with the current model line of the company and will show a new stylistic language. It seems the automaker decided to get rid of the design heritage of Josef Kaban, who now paints BMW models.
The design has much in common with last year’s Skoda Vision X concept. Judging by the first design sketches that Skoda published, Kamiq will have a fashionable “two-story” optics today: narrow LED running lights are separated from the main headlights. Headlight lenses have a “crystal” pattern, which, according to the idea of Skoda's chief designer, Oliver Stephanie, should increase the premium quality of the car.
The roofline is reduced to the rear, which gives the car a very dynamic silhouette, and a small spoiler is located above the rear door. Behind the crossover narrow L-shaped lights. In Skoda, Kamiq is positioned as an urban crossover for those who love adventure.
The car, according to Czechs, combines the car’s handling and all the advantages of a crossover (high ground clearance, high seating position). The car is built on the modular platform MQB-A0, and most of the components and assemblies of Skoda Kamiq will be shared with the platform Volkswagen T-Cross and Seat Arona. It will be the cheapest crossover brand in the European market. According to the Skoda legend, the name Kamiq comes from the Hindu language, which lives in Canada and Greenland.

In free translation, this word means “second skin,” that is, an item that fits the owner very well. Skoda, by the way, already has a crossover with this name: a budget Kamiq crossover is sold in China, comparable in size to the VW Tiguan.
