The Skoda tradition of offering a sporty, lifestyle-oriented Monte Carlo trim level has also been extended to the new Kamiq city SUV.
The new Skoda Kamiq is the second SUV in the brand's history to come with a sporty Monte Carlo version, having been preceded by the Skoda Yeti.
Monte Carlo versions of the Kamiq will receive black roof rails, side sills and Skoda lettering on the tailgate The Monte Carlo name is used to identify the sporty lifestyle versions of Skoda's compact models. It evokes the splendour and glamour of the Principality of Monaco as well as the storied motor racing history of the Monte Carlo Rally, an event that dates back to 1911 and has seen many Skoda successes over the years.
The Fabia Monte Carlo will now be joined by the Kamiq and Scala Monte Carlo versions, expanding the range of popular lifestyle trim levels for Skoda's compact models. What all three models have in common are sporty, black Monte Carlo features and upgraded equipment.
In addition to the characteristic split full-LED head lights, the Skoda Kamiq Monte Carlo comes with a glossy black frame surrounding the Skoda grille, for a dynamic and distinctive appearance. The black detailing also extends to parts of the front bumper, the wing mirror caps, roof rails, side sills and the centrally positioned Skoda lettering on the tailgate.
Sports seats on the Monte Carlo versions will also have their own unique design with integrated headrests The Skoda Kamiq Monte Carlo is available with the full range of Kamiq engines and features black 17-inch alloy wheels with a Monte Carlo design as standard, while 18-inch alloys are available as an option.
The trim level includes SunSet tinted side windows and a panoramic roof. A black rear diffuser, black model designations and full-LED taillights round off the sporty appearance of the range-topper, which can also be identified by a special badge.
The interior of the Kamiq Monte Carlo also welcomes the driver and front passenger with height-adjustable sports seats featuring a specific Monte Carlo design and integrated headrests. The multifunction sports steering wheel is covered in perforated leather bearing the same red decorative seams as the leather finish for the gear selector and handbrake lever.
LED ambient lighting also comes in red and illuminates the centre console, door storage compartments, door handles and footwells, while the decorative trims and instrument panel have their own standalone design, and the air vents in the dashboard sport a chrome look and the pedal trim features an aluminium design. Special floor mats, with Kamiq lettering on the door sills and a black roof lining complete the interior.
The general public will be able to experience the new Skoda Kamiq Monte Carlo for the first time from 10 to 22 September at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show. Market launch will start in the fourth quarter of 2019.
