Compact crossover Kamiq declassified next week.
We still don’t know whether there will be we Karoq Skoda, and the Czechs are ready to present for the third crossover in the new system of titles (with the letter K at the beginning and the Q at the end). This compact Kamiq, whose new spy pictures appeared online this week.
The machine is made for the Chinese market, so the world premiere will take place at the Beijing auto show, which opens next week. To release the car is a joint-venture SAIC-Volkswagen. Export prospects are vague, but we are sure that in Russia this cheap Skoda came to the court. In China Kamiq in a base complete set will cost in terms of our money 900 thousand rubles. For comparison: larger and no longer young Yeti costs from 1 069 000 rubles.
Machine length is 4390 mm, width — 1781, height — 1596, wheelbase — 2610 mm. As the base engine selected polutoralitrovye petrol aspirated-impact 110 HP whether for a fee available all-wheel drive, and what kind of automatic transmission will offer a Skoda, still an open question. If you focus on the tastes of the European buyers of cars in this class, all the drive wheels do not need them, and the machine is bought relatively infrequently. But the Chinese priorities may be different.
Given the fact that Skoda Yeti diverged in Russia is very good, and Karoq will be significantly more expensive Kamiq could significantly increase the sales of the brand in our market, close in popularity to two key models of the brand — “rapid” and “Octavia”. And we hope that the car will still be with us.
