Used test: Skoda Kamiq vs Volkswagen T-Cross verdict

They may be small SUVs, but these two offer big amounts of style and practicality. As five-year-old used buys, they're very affordable too. We've put them head to head to find a winner...

Skoda Kamiq vs Volkswagen T-Cross

Our verdict

As we've explored, there are key ways in which the Skoda Kamiq and Volkswagen T-Cross differ, despite their shared parts. The final result is a close one, nonetheless. 

If you prioritise a raised-up driving position and refined motorway manners, the T-Cross is the better choice. However, in significant areas like handling, comfort and interior quality, the Kamiq scores higher. Ultimately, the Kamiq is the better all-rounder and would be our choice.
