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.

For something a little plusher than the S go for our recommendation, SE. It gives you 17in alloy wheels, cruise control, auto lights and wipers, an automatically dimming rear-view mirror, rear parking sensors, front-seat lumbar adjustment, a front centre armrest, extra storage and a handy umbrella in the front door. You also get an 8.0in infotainment screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto included. It's worth adding an adjustable boot floor, the Simply Clever Pack, and perhaps a rear-view camera.

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.
