OK, here is a conundrum:
Is the Kamiq based on the old PQ34 platform or the MQB?

Most English/European websites describe the Kamiq as built on the old PQ34 platform (a Google search will help); however there are almost nil articles in the Chinese press relating the Kamiq to the PQ34.

On the other hand, there is a significant no. of articles in Chinese which describe the Kamiq as an MQB (MQB-A0) based car.

A sample of the Chinese articles are:
http://www.sohu.com/a/229408546_121861 (last para)
http://auto.163.com/18/0426/02/DG9JSPPK0008856R.html (A box on MQB models is given)

For now, I tend to lean, in the absence of contrary information, towards the MQB view. I have seen three internal codes for Shanghai-VW Skoda programs: SK326/0CS_KL, SK326/1CS_KL, and SK326/2CS_KL. SK stands for Skoda, CS for SVW (FAW-VW is CN). The "326" part relates to certain SUVs on MQB, not only from Skoda but also from VW, SEAT, and Audi. SK326/0 is the Karoq and SK326/1 is the Kodiaq. So, could SK326/2 refer to the Kamiq? Or is it some other future SUV previewed by the Vision X concept?

Can anyone shed any light?

I finally have got an answer.

The Kamiq is based on the PQ35 platform. The program code for "Model Q" (the project name for Kamiq) is SK316/3CS, which is related to Yeti (SK316/0), 1st-gen. Tiguan (VW316/0), and Audi Q3 (AU316/0), all SUVs which ride on PQ35.

The Chinese articles were wrong.
I have confirmed from a supplier database that the Chinese Kamiq is based on the PQ34, however the program code is indeed SK316/3CS.
