The slow tease of Skoda’s upcoming Kamiq continues with the reveal of the car’s interior. As we previously reported, the nameplate – previously reserved for the Chinese market – makes its way to Europe as a rival to the ever-popular Honda HR-V and Toyota C-HR, as well as Continental alternatives like the Renault Captur and Peugeot 2008.

And like we saw in the earlier exterior sketch, the interior will again differ extensively from the Chinese-market model, bearing much greater resemblance to the one in the new Scala hatch. Instead of the sober horizontal dashboard, there’s now a wavy panel that surrounds the large freestanding touchscreen, which Skoda says gives you a place to rest your wrist whilst operating the display.

This wavy dash extends towards the side air vents that encroach into the doors, giving the car a more spacious feel. The Kamiq also features Skoda’s 10.25-inch Virtual Cockpit instrument display, first introduced on the larger Karoq SUV, as well as a new crystalline grain on the soft-touch dashboard. Other details include three-colour ambient lighting and a Suedia microfibre upholstery option.

There’s no word on powertrain options, but it’s expected to be propelled by a 1.0 TSI three-cylinder and 1.5 TSI four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engines from the Volkswagen Group. Both engines are already serving active duty in the car’s sister models, the Seat Arona and the Volkswagen T-Cross.
