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.

get the best price

Rear privacy glass and a 9.2in touchscreen infotainment system get added to SE trim to make SE Drive. You also get a different design of alloy wheel.

The Kamiq's most expensive petrol engine is worth a look if you want a bit more zip away from the lights (0-62mph takes just 8.3sec), or if you regularly carry a full load of passengers or luggage. It's also the smoothest engine in the range, and shouldn't cost you much more than the smaller petrols in fuel. Impressively, it actually emits less CO2 than the 1.0 TSI 115.
