Also in the period from early January to late October, the small crossover outstripped two main competitors.

The inexpensive crossover Skoda Kamiq has become the brand’s bestseller in the Chinese car market. For the first 10 months of this year, the car has sold 31 thousand copies. This is significantly better than the main competitors Hyundai Creta and KIA Seltos, which were sold 26.5 and 18 thousand times, respectively.

The debut of the car took place back in 2018, but interest in it still does not subside. The low price of the car is due to the fact that it is based on the PQ25 platform, which is an earlier version and differs from the European version. In the Celestial Empire, the motor car range consists of 2 power units.

The base is a 1.5-liter naturally aspirated engine capable of delivering 110 hp, which works in tandem with 5-speed manual transmission and 6-speed automatic transmission. The 1.2-liter turbo engine has 116 hp. and is combined with a 7-band “robot”. There is no four-wheel drive even in the maximum configuration.

In the maximum configuration, you can count on quite rich equipment – a modern multimedia complex, a digital instrument panel, a rear-view camera and a sunroof.

Prices start at 89.9 thousand yuan, and the maximum configuration will cost 125.9 thousand yuan

Meanwhile, Skoda has received a patent for a new seat belt buckle technology. Their main feature is the presence of illumination, which indicates whether the belt is in the buckle or not.
