What Car? says...
Small SUVs like the Skoda Kamiq are becoming more and more like chocolate bars. The basic recipe is often the same – a bit of rufty-tufty styling and perhaps more interior space – and generally they end up quite similar.
So, why might you choose the Kamiq over a Seat Arona or VW T-Cross – two models that use the same basic underpinnings? Well, sticking with the choccie bar analogy, the Kamiq has a different wrapper and a squidgier filling, but it’s also what you might describe as ‘King Size’ – it's big by small SUV standards.
Aside from all those clever touches, is the Skoda Kamiq a fundamentally good small SUV? Does it stack up financially and, crucially, should you consider buying one instead of the Arona, Juke, Ford Puma, T-Cross or T-Roc? This review will put it to the test against those rivals, and also tell you which engine and trim we recommend.
