Skoda Kamiq (2019–)

Model History

March 2019

Skoda Kamiq revealed

The Skoda Kamiq sits below the Karoq and Kodiaq in Skoda's range. It's 4241mm long and 1793mm wide, with a height of 1531mm. The wheelbase measures 2651mm, giving rear passengers 73mm of knee room. The boot has a capacity of 400 litres, which increases to 1395 litres when the rear seats are folded down. As an optional extra, the front passenger’s seat back can also be folded down, allowing longer items up to 2447 mm to be transported with ease.

The interior is dominated by a 9.2-inch free-standing screen positioned in the driver’s field of view. Measuring 10.25 inches, the optional Virtual Cockpit is also amongst the largest displays in the segment.

Comfort options include a heated steering wheel and heated windscreen. The Kamiq also offers heated seats, not only for the two front seats but also as an option for the outer seats in the back.

All of the Skoda Kamiq’s engines are direct-injection units with turbochargers. They come with brake energy recovery as well as Stop/Start technology and comply with the currently strictest Euro 6d‑TEMP emissions standard. The entry-level engine is a 1.0 TSI delivering 95PS. From its cylinder capacity of 1.0-litre, this three-cylinder model produces maximum torque of 175Nm and features a manual 5-speed gearbox.

The 1.0 TSI with a power output of 115PS comes with a six-speed gearbox as standard, but can be fitted with a seven-speed DSG automatic as an option, and generates torque of 200Nm. The top-end engine is the four-cylinder 1.5 TSI with a power output of 150PS and maximum torque of 250Nm. Its Active Cylinder Technology (ACT) automatically shuts down two cylinders when the load is light, thus saving on fuel. This engine is also available with a seven-speed DSG as an alternative to the manual six-speed gearbox. All three petrol engines are equipped with a petrol particulate filter.

The four-cylinder 1.6 TDI diesel engine delivering 115PS also offers torque of 250Nm; it is fitted with an SCR catalytic converter with AdBlue injection and a diesel particulate filter as standard. This efficient diesel engine is coupled with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard; a seven-speed DSG is available as an option.

With 37mm more ground clearance than the new compact car, the Skoda Scala, the manufacturer says the Kamiq's chassis combines the advantages of an SUV with the agile handling of a compact car. Sport Chassis Control allows for an even more dynamic set-up. This optional sporty chassis is 10mm lower and, in addition to the Normal mode, also has a Sport mode with firmer characteristics for the shock absorbers that feature adjustable valves. Drivers can configure the two chassis settings in the menu for Driving Mode Select, which comes in combination with Sport Chassis Control. Driving Mode Select offers a choice of four modes: Normal, Sport, Eco and Individual. As an optional extra, underbody protection is available for those who also like to venture off‑road.
