The first show of the model will be held on April 23, the public premiere of the SUV will be held two days later at the Beijing Motor Show.

Thus, Kamiq is smaller than the Chinese version of Skoda Karoq. Let’s remind, specially for China Karoq stretched: the length and wheelbase are increased by 50 mm in comparison with the European SUV. So, the dimensions of Karoq, presented in China, are as follows: 4 432/1 841/1 614 mm, wheelbase – 2,688 mm.

It is expected that the Chinese Kamiq will be offered with a single gasoline 1.5 power 110 hp, which works in tandem with manual or automatic transmission. Probably, we are talking about the motor of the new family EA211 Evo. The drive, most likely, will only be forward.
