Skoda Auto India recently launched multiple new products in the Indian market, which includes the Rapid 1.0 TSI, Skoda Superb, and the Karoq SUV. Now, the Czech carmaker seems to be preparing to launch another product in the country. The Skoda Kamiq SUV has been captured on camera while testing on Indian roads. The company is expected to launch the Skoda Kamiq SUV by early next year. The spy shot gives a clear glimpse of the rear profile of the SUV as the test mule was spotted with any camouflage.
The SUV gets the 'Skoda' badging in the centre, L-shaped LED taillights, black-cladding on the rear bumper and much more. Apart from this, the Skoda Kamiq will sport the signature butterfly grille, flanked by the split-LED headlamp design. The overall character of the car is enhanced by a chrome strip around the front grille. The SUV will also get larger air intakes, sloping roofline, roof rails, shark fin antenna, L-shaped LED split taillights and much more.
The Kamiq is likely to come with 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine
In the international market, the Skoda Kamiq comes with a couple of powertrain options. However, the India-spec model is likely to be powered by a 1.5-litre turbocharged unit, which is also seen on the recently launched Karoq SUV. The TSI petrol unit is tuned to make 148 bhp of maximum power against the peak torque of 250 Nm. The unit will come mated with a 7-speed DSG automatic gearbox.
When launched, the Skoda Kamiq SUV will take on the rivals against the likes of Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Volkswagen Taigun and others. Coming to the prices, the Kamiq is expected to be priced somewhere in the range of ₹ 12 lakh to ₹ 18 lakh (ex-showroom).
