Two design sketches of the newest member of the ŠKODA SUV family, the KAMIQ, have been released ahead of the car’s world premiere at the Geneva motor show running from 5 to 17 March.
The car continues the brand’s successful SUV design language with its powerful, rugged looks, and adds some new highlights. Oliver Stefani, ŠKODA Chief Designer, said: “In our new KAMIQ city SUV we’ve implemented a completely new headlamp configuration. The two-part headlamps with daytime running lights above are a first for ŠKODA. They give the KAMIQ a unique appearance and represent another interpretation of our successful SUV design language.”
The KAMIQ is also the first ŠKODA to have dynamic indicators at the front and rear. The headlamp lenses with crystalline effects and LED units enhance the car’s premium appeal.
The wide, upright radiator grille, which comes with double slats, is another typical feature for the ŠKODA SUV design. The striking ‘tornado line’ visually elongates the vehicle.
The tall bonnet, extra ground clearance, large wheels and diffuser are important parts of the car’s side profile. Balanced proportions, clear surfaces and a modern design give the model a sporty look.
The rear features a re-interpretation of ŠKODA’s classic C-shaped tail light design with crystalline shapes similar to the front. The ŠKODA KAMIQ is the first SUV in Europe bearing the ŠKODA lettering in the middle of the tailgate instead of the familiar ŠKODA logo.
