New Skoda Kamiq vs Volkswagen T-Cross

These small SUVs from Skoda and Volkswagen show that practicality and class can be yours for a very affordable price...

Skoda Kamiq infotainment


Skoda Kamiq

The 9.2in touchscreen pictured is a £1230 option that has in-built sat-nav; as standard, you get an 8.0in screen and need to use the smartphone mirroring function along with your Apple or Android device to get directions. But the standard system is more than good enough, thanks to a bright screen and an interface that’s easy to get your head around. What’s more, the upgraded system is sometimes frustratingly slow to respond to presses.

Volkswagen T-Cross infotainment

Volkswagen T-Cross

Unlike in the Kamiq, the upgraded system fitted to our T-Cross doesn’t add a bigger screen (it remains 8.0in in size), but it does give you built-in sat-nav, with live traffic updates, and a CD player. It’s also cheaper than the upgrade in the Kamiq, at £725. Still, we’d save our money, because the standard system has smartphone mirroring for all your sat-nav needs. Consider the optional Beats soundpack (£430) if you listen to music a lot while driving.
