The Nissan Juke rival was photographed sporting minimal disguise, confirming that it will feature styling cues that put it closely in line with its larger siblings, the Skoda Karoq and Skoda Kodiaq. The shots also show that the Kamiq closely follows the design established by the Vision X SUV concept that Skoda displayed at last year's Geneva show.
The Czech firm recently released an official interior image, showing that the Kamiq takes on Skoda's evolved interior design first revealed in the Scala hatchback. It has previously teased the car with sketches of its exterior styling.
While many interior elements are familiar, the infotainment display – up to 9.2in across on top models – is positioned higher up to better place it in the driver's field of vision. More soft-touch materials and colour options are also said to feature.
Earlier this year, Skoda confirmed that the model would be called the Kamiq. The name was taken from an Inuit word meaning "something that fits as perfectly as a second skin in every situation", according to Skoda. That fits in with the convention first established by the Kodiaq, which was named after the Alaskan Kodiak bear.
Skoda already sells an SUV called the Kamiq in China, but that car is based on a localised platform shared with the Chinese version of the Skoda Rapid saloon and isn't technically related to the new Kamiq.
Based on the same version of the Volkswagen Group MQB platform as the Seat Arona and Volkswagen T-Roc, the Kamiq will be the third and smallest model in Skoda’s SUV line. It's tipped to have a longer wheelbase than both the Arona and T-Roc, potentially offering greater interior space.
