The Afriq starts with a Škoda Kamiq. The team welded the rear doors shut and enlarged the wheel arches. Škoda Motorsport supplied headlights, roof scoop, and tailgate/spoiler from their Fabia Rally2 Evo race car.

Underneath the team installed a powertrain from a Škoda Octavia. This means the Afriq has a turbocharged 2.0 L TSI inline-four making 140 kW (190 hp) and 320 Nm (236 lb-ft) of torque. Power is sent to all four wheels through a seven-speed DSG and AWD drivetrain.

The 1350 kg (2976 lb) Afriq rides on a reinforced off-road suspension with a multi-link rear. It stops thanks to Škoda Octavia disc brakes which hide behind a set of OZ Racing 15-inch wheels with Pirelli tires. The SUV has 190 mm (7.4 inches) of ground clearance.
