The Skoda Kamiq Monte Carlo has been revealed, bringing sportier styling and equipment to the brand's smallest crossover model – earmarked for the Australian market during the first half of next year.
Set to debut at the Frankfurt motor show next week, the Monte Carlo-badged Kamiq picks up a black pack-style treatment for the exterior accents, including the front grille, bumper, side mirrors, roof rails, side sills, rear diffuser, and 'SKODA' lettering on the tailgate.
Other headlining additions include full-LED headlights and tail-lights, black 17-inch alloy wheels (18-inch rims optional), SunSet tinted side windows, a panoramic sunroof, and 'Monte Carlo' badging.
Inside, the Kamiq Monte Carlo picks up height-adjustable sports seats with model-specific upholstery, a perforated leather sports steering wheel with red stitching, with the red accents extending to the seams for the gearshift and handbrake lever.
Red LED ambient lighting is also included, which illuminates the centre console, door bins, door handles and footwells, while the trim inserts for the dashboard and doors have their own design.
Rounding out the sporting touches are chrome surrounds for the interior air vents, aluminium pedals, special floor mats, a black roof liner, and 'KAMIQ' lettering on the door sills.
Following its debut at the Frankfurt motor show next week, the Kamiq Monte Carlo will go on sale in Europe from the fourth quarter of 2019.
Skoda Australia hopes to launch the Monte Carlo variant alongside the wider Kamiq line-up sometime during the first half of 2020, mirroring the plan for the related Scala hatchback.
Pricing and specifications are still to be determined for our market, though we wouldn't be surprised if the Kamiq starts around $30,000 and climb to around $35,000 for the Monte Carlo.
