All-new Skoda Kamiq SUV: Pricing and specs revealed
Skoda has revealed their new SUV will be available from just £17,700 OTR, with first deliveries expected in November.
Following in the footsteps of the Kodiaq and Karoq, the Kamiq will be the smallest SUV in the Skoda range with four trims and four engine options available.
Based on Volkswagen Group’s MQB platform, the front-wheel-drive SUV features state-of-the-art assistance and infotainment systems, emotive design and a wealth of 'Simply Clever' features.
Differentiating itself slightly from its two big brothers, the Kamiq has a more upright grille and optional narrow LED running lights as well as dynamic indicators which flash outward ala Audi’s recent models.
The Kamiq range comprises four trim levels; S, SE, SE L and Monte Carlo - which is set to open for order later in the year - with each grade offering high levels of standard equipment and a broad range of options.
The entry-level Kamiq S, starting from £17,700, offers 16-inch alloy wheels, LED lights, air con, and 6.5-inch infotainment screen with DAB. The Kamiq SE (£19,135) adds 17-inch alloys, body-coloured bumpers, 8-inch infotainment screen with smartphone mirroring, parking sensors, cruise control and automatic lights and wipers.
Jumping to the Kamiq SE L (£21,180) will get you 18-inch alloy wheels, 9.2-inch infotainment with sat nav, keyless entry and blind spot detection, as well as microsuede upholstery, silver haptic inlays, and rear LED lights with dynamic indicators.
Pricing is still TBC for the range-topping Kamiq Monte Carlo but this offers gloss black detailing, panoramic roof, 18-inch Vega alloys, and LED ambient lighting.
Despite being built on the same Volkswagen Group MQB A0 platform used by the Seat Arona and Volkswagen T-Cross, the Kamiq offers more interior space than both thanks to its slightly longer 2,651 mm wheelbase.
At 4,241 mm long, its generous amount of space makes it the perfect companion for families and lifestyle-oriented customers in equal measure. The 400-litre boot capacity is identical to the Arona and can be accessed using an optional electric tailgate. It expands to 1,395 litres with the rear seats folded.
Four engines will be available at launch. These include two 1.0 TSI petrols, with 94hp and 113hp, and a 1.5 TSI with 148hp. A 1.6 TDI will also be available and offers 113hp.
Both the 113hp and 148hp petrol units as well as the TDI can be specified with a seven-speed DSG gearbox.
The new Kamiq will arrive in the UK in November.
