Skoda Kamiq SUV gets new Scoutline trim
The new Skoda Kamiq Scoutline is due to make its debut at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show. It boasts style tweaks with the Scoutline trim, the Kamiq is the first of the Skoda range to get this new trim level. It has been awarded the Best Small SUV 2020 accolade by CarBuyer.co.uk.
With the all-new tough-looking Scoutline trim level the Skoda Kamiq will soon be available to order. All of Skoda Scout models get all-wheel drive, however, the new changes for the Scout line are just restricted to changes to the style that are designed to make its appearance more like an off-roader.
During the Geneva Motor Show in March 2020, The Kamiq Scoutline will make it’s a showcase on the Skoda stand before being released for sale in June. The specifications and prices are yet to be released, but a starting price of around £24,000 is expected.
In order to make the Kamiq’s appearance more like what you would expect from an off-roader, Skoda has given the Scoutline a facelift with a matte black wheel arch surrounding, a change to the front spoiler and a rear diffuser which is designed to look like underbody protection, you will also find extra silver flashes for an added finishing touch. There are also featured LED tail-lights and tinted rear windows. It drives on 17-inch wheels as standard, but you do have the option of upgrading to 18-inch versions from the options list.
The Scoutline also boasts an all exclusive interior trim decoration. The ash wood effect is standard and then you have a darker shade available as a luxury alternative. The front seats include an upgrade to a new upholstery choice which is made up of breathable fabric and microfibre suede then it’s stamped with a Scoutline badge. The key touchpoints in the car like the gear lever and the steering wheel are all leather-trimmed, and it features three-colour ambient lighting with LED reading lights.
All the engines in the Kamiq range are available to be specified with the Scoutline. This means you have the choice of one diesel engine and three petrol engines. It’s expected that the 1.0-litre petrol is going to be the most popular choice and make up the bulk of the sales, it has either 113 bhp or 94bhp.
The diesel engine is unsurprisingly the most economical of the choices, it offers around 55mpg, however, the petrol options aren’t that far behind and will be a cheaper option to buy. You’ll be able to expect 47mpg or so from each of the three petrol engines if they are paired with the manual gearbox. You can expect the mpg to drop slightly if you choose the automatic gearbox.
The latest model will come with an array of useful features that will include standout LED headlights, a DAB radio and reversing sensors. It will also come with the impressive Skoda 9.2-inch touchscreen, cruise control and smartphone connectivity, all of which are becoming essentials to any new vehicle purchase.
