The world premiere of a new car crossover of the Czech brand may take place this spring.

Pictures of the compact cross-country Skoda appeared in the base of the Ministry of Industry of China. The model is intended for the “Celestial” market, its production will be adjusted at the local plant of joint ventures of Volkswagen and SAIC. On the tailgate of the “SUV” there is a nameplate Kamiq. According to unofficial data, the crossover will be cheaper than Skoda Karoq.

The length of Skoda Kamiq is 4 390 mm, width – 1 781 mm, height – 1,593 mm (with rails – 1 606 mm), the wheelbase is 2,610 mm in size. For comparison, the length of the Chinese version of the Skoda Karoq is 4 432 mm, the wheelbase is 2,688 mm. Let’s note, the new cross is deprived of “chips”, characteristic for the latest SUV brands, – two-tier head optics.

It is expected that the SUV will be offered with a petrol engine 1.5 with a capacity of 110 hp. It is not yet known with which transmissions the engine will be combined. The drive, most likely, will only be forward.

According to Chinese media, the crossover Skoda Kamiq will debut in April as part of the Beijing Motor Show, it will be on sale in the summer. The model is unlikely to get out of the China.

Earlier it became known that Skoda is preparing to introduce another novelty of the SUV segment – a coupe version of the Kodiaq crossover. Unlike Kamiq, a cross-coupe can appear in Europe.
