Review

The Skoda Kamiq is a breath of fresh air in the small SUV class. It’s bigger, classier inside and more comfortable than the Seat Arona and VW T-Cross, and has some really clever features to help take the stresses out of modern family life. Overall, we prefer the nimbler Ford Puma, but that shouldn't stop the Kamiq featuring high up on your shopping list.

As well as everything that the SE trim has, Monte Carlo offers a sportier look with black roof rails, red interior detailing, ambient interior lighting, full LED headlights and a panoramic sunroof. Like the SE L, you also get a 9.2in infotainment system with sat-nav, digital instruments, privacy glass, power-folding door mirrors, a height-adjustable passenger seat and front-seat lumbar adjustment.

For a reasonable fee over the 95, you get a bit more pep that’s useful if you regularly have a full car or venture onto the motorway. Worth considering.
