China-only ŠKODA SUV seen for the first time ahead of its debut at the Beijing Motor Show.
With the launches of the KODIAQ and the KAROQ, ŠKODA’s SUV campaign is already in full swing. Now ŠKODA has transferred their expressive design into a new mainstream city SUV for the Chinese market, underlining the brand’s emotive strength.
A series of sketches of the car show that it carries well-established ŠKODA SUV design cues, including a prominent, wide front grille, subtle surfacing on the bonnet which ties into the badge position, and a single, sharp line along the flanks that runs from the headlights to the tail-lights.
ŠKODA has yet to confirm the name, incidentally, but the new model is expected to follow the existing SUV naming pattern and be called Kamiq.
ŠKODA’s SUV strategy is key to the brand’s growth. With an SUV market share of over 30 per cent in the first quarter, ŠKODA plays an important role in the Chinese market. Now, the third ŠKODA SUV is ready to be launched and will be celebrating its debut at the 2018 Beijing Motor Show.
