It’s about time for a refresh for the Skoda Kamiq . After a little more than three years on the market, a facelift is announced. Skoda’s compact SUV Kamiq has been on the market since 2019. In the middle of the model cycle, it’s time for a facelift. Now the first pictures of a test car driving in Austria have appeared.
- Kamiq facelift photographed
- No engine changes expected
- The Interior only slightly changed
- Overall only moderate updates expected
- Market launch scheduled for 2023
The Erlkönig images show the Skoda Kamiq on a test drive. The front and rear are still wrapped in camouflage film to hide the innovations. There wouldn’t be too much to see anyway, as we’re not expecting any major changes – just minor tweaks like we saw with the Karoq last year.
These adjustments include a new grille and a fairly heavily modified front bumper. Here the air intakes are more pronounced. There will also be new taillights, as well as a new rear bumper.
As far as the engine is concerned, we don’t expect any innovations. The Kamiq is currently available as a petrol engine with two engines. The 1.0 TSI delivers 95 or 115 hp, for the 1.5-liter petrol engine 150 hp are planned.
Diesel is also available. This is offered with 115 hp and can optionally be purchased with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission – like the petrol engine.
Skoda Kamiq 2023 prices and the start of sales
The facelift of the Skoda Kamiq is expected for the 2023 model year, so the presentation shouldn’t be too long in coming. In terms of price, we estimate that the revised version should not be much more expensive than the current model. The Kamiq currently starts for 21,230 euros.
