  • City suv meets rally history: New Škoda Kamiq Monte Carlo

    • New top trim level for the latest ŠKODA model references the brand’s rally history
    • Sporty lifestyle version with black MONTE CARLO features and even more comprehensive equipment
    • Presentation in September at the Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA), market launch in the fourth quarter of 2019

    The ŠKODA tradition of offering a sporty, lifestyle-oriented MONTE CARLO trim level will also be extended to the new KAMIQ city SUV.
    The latest ŠKODA SUV model uses dynamic, black MONTE CARLO features to evoke the brand’s successful rally history and also features an upgraded level of equipment. The ŠKODA KAMIQ is the Czech brand’s second SUV to come in a sporty MONTE CARLO version, the first having been the ŠKODA YETI. The ŠKODA KAMIQ MONTE CARLO will make its debut together with the ŠKODA SCALA MONTE CARLO from 10 to 22 September at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The new top trim level for the KAMIQ can be combined with all the engines available for the model series. Deliveries will start in the fourth quarter of 2019.

    Oliver Stefani, Head of ŠKODA Design, says: “The new ŠKODA KAMIQ is a typical ŠKODA SUV that develops its own distinctive personality through design elements like the split headlights. The black MONTE CARLO features emphasise this independent character and make it an even more attractive proposition for a younger target group. What you have here is a perfect combination of a sporty design referencing our successful rally vehicles and the everyday usability of a smart city SUV.”

    The new ŠKODA KAMIQ is the second SUV in the brand’s history to come with a sporty MONTE CARLO version, having been preceded by the ŠKODA YETI. The MONTE CARLO name is used to identify the sporty lifestyle versions of ŠKODA’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 ŠKODA successes over the years. The manufacturer’s first model to bear the MONTE CARLO name was a 1936 limited edition of the ŠKODA POPULAR. 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 ŠKODA’s compact models. What all three models have in common are sporty, black MONTE CARLO features and upgraded equipment.

    MONTE CARLO features communicate sportiness

    In addition to the characteristic split full-LED headlights, the ŠKODA KAMIQ MONTE CARLO comes with a glossy black frame surrounding the ŠKODA 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 ŠKODA lettering on the tailgate. The ŠKODA 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; 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 tail lights round off the sporty appearance of the new KAMIQ range-topper, which can also be identified by a special badge.

    Dynamic interior accents

    The interior of the ŠKODA KAMIQ MONTE CARLO 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. The LED ambient lighting also comes in red and illuminates the centre console, door storage compartments, door handles and footwells. The KAMIQ MONTE CARLO also includes LED reading lights. The decorative trims and instrument panel have their own standalone design, with the air vents in the dashboard sporting a chrome look and the pedal trim featuring an aluminium design. Special floor mats, KAMIQ lettering on the door sills and a black roof lining complete the interior.

    Industry insiders and the general public alike will be able to experience the new ŠKODA KAMIQ MONTE CARLO for the first time from 10 to 22 September at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show, Stand A11 in Hall 3.0. Market launch will start in the fourth quarter of 2019.

    There are 2 coolant temperature sensors on 2.0 passat engines. This code is for the G83 in the coolant flange on the side of the head above the gearbox.

    4F0 199 343K is the bracket and yes they are easy to change and a common issue, I must get Powerflex to add it to their range.

    It seemed to me that it must have been (still be) a common issue. A lesson also for me to not be lazy and to have slipped off

    Can anyone advise if a A4 B8 steering wheel will fit in a A4 B7 correctly and the multi function switches will operate as they should.

    As far as I know in Q7 and Q8 the difference in VC Plus is that it contains only additional graphics: Sport and Dynamic. Fuel and temperature displays

    Re: 4M finds.

    Oddly enough, I noticed such behaviour this morning.
    Driving along in Efficiency Mode and the gearbox couldn't decide what gear it wanted to be
