The Skoda Kamiq 2020 model range is set to arrive in Australia in the coming months, but it won’t launch with the newest member of the small Czech SUV family – the Skoda Kamiq Scoutline.
The new Kamiq variant is the first ever “Scoutline” model from the brand, with the previous “Scout” name not used this time around – presumably because this new baby bopper isn’t quite as rough and tumble as previous iterations bearing the name.
It’s based on the “Ambition” trim and is available with a range of different engines globally – three petrol, one diesel and one natural gas. There are 12 different colour options available for the Scoutline, including three solid and nine metallic.
It gets the tell-tale signs of adventure-focused buyers, including matte black wheel-arch trims, silver exterior bodywork elements, a redesigned front bumper with underbody protection, and a rear diffuser. There are also silver sills, mirror caps and roof rails, while the tinted glass scores chrome-plated framing.
The exterior also scores Scoutline badges on the front arches and LED tail-lights and there are 17- or 18-inch alloys available.
The interior of the Scoutline Kamiq is also specific to this variant, with ash wood trim fitted as standard, while an optional dark brushed finish is also available. There are also chrome air-vent surrounds, and there are aluminium pedals, while the trim is Skoda’s “breathable ThermoFlux and Suedia microfibre”. There is ambient LED lighting, LED reading lights and an optional black headlining.
CarsGuide has been told by a Skoda Australia representative that the brand isn’t currently planning to offer the Scoutline, but that they “wouldn’t rule it out”.
Skoda Australia is set to announce pricing and specifications for the new Kamiq range imminently, as the new small SUV is expected on sale by July.
