A pretty lazy design. Looks underwhelming and old.

Boring name and silly name, not a fan of Skoda SUV's so far. I guess we have the heads at VAG to thank for that. Give me a Skoda Octavia RS wagon or Scout over these anytime. A Superb wagon too.

So basically teh same size as the Karoq, also MQB derived, looking similar though slightly more boring and old. Oh, and yes, China does receive the Karoq as well.

Probably instead of designing the 487th MQB based small SUV; VAG should work on a slightly newer and different design language. And hopefully this is not their "Arona" sister car for Europe

Same name, different car: The european Kamiq will be slightly shorter (4,20m) and sit on the MQB-A0 platform (like VW Polo, Seat Ibiza and Skoda Scala already).
It is the production version of the Vision X Concept, changes are minimal (at least on the outside): https://www.netcarshow.com/skoda/2018-vision_x_concept/




WIll be presented in Geneva in March.

Typically overdone teaser, but I guess it will look decent enough, easily better than the "Ibiza with elevated roof" Arona and, even easier, better than the T-Cross. Also, having seen the Skoda Kamiq in flesh, it is not outstanding, but has a subtle elegance and avoids the overdone with details look of other recent VAG designs, especially AUdis. Weird how nowadays SKoda seems to get the most attractive designs in the whole VAG group (I include Audi). I guess this will be a hit, although I also guess mostly at the cost of already existing products at Skoda resp. Seat or VW...

If Skoda Kamiq got together with a Kia Soul, would their offspring be a Kami-Soul?
