The Kamiq SUV becomes the first model to get a Scoutline variant; international launch in July.
Skoda has revealed new details regarding the Kamiq Scoutline, ahead of its international launch in July 2020. The SUV, which is the brand’s first model to be released with a ‘Scoutline’ variant (it is based on the Ambition trim), was meant to arrive in international markets in June. The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has pushed the launch back by a month.
On the outside, the Kamiq Scoutline features black plastic cladding around the wheel arches, ‘Scoutline’ badging on the front fenders, a faux front skid plate and rear diffuser finished in silver, and 17-inch alloys as standard, with 18-inchers being optional. Much like the ‘Scout’ models in Skoda’s line-up, the Scoutline gets the side sills, wing mirrors and roof rails finished in silver.
Inside, the Kamiq Scoutline gets an all-black theme with “breathable ThermoFlux fabric and Suedia microfibre” upholstery, ash-wood trim on the dashboard, leather-wrapped steering and gear lever and pedals finished in aluminium. LED ambient lighting is a part of the package and buyers can also opt for a dark brushed finish on the dashboard and black roof lining as optional extras.
The Kamiq Scoutline can be had with three petrol engines, one diesel engine and one G-TEC (CNG-powered) engine. Outputs for the motors range between 90hp and 150hp.
The Skoda Kamiq Scoutline for Europe is based on the MQB A0 platform that is also shared with the European-spec Volkswagen T-Cross SUV. As part of the India 2.0 plan, Skoda will bring in a fresh SUV here, which will be based on the Kamiq but will sit on a made-for-India MQB A0 IN platform. The company previewed the SUV earlier this year as the Vision IN concept. Check it out here.
