Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

Costs, insurance groups, MPG and CO2

The Skoda Kamiq in popular SE trim comes in at around the same price as an equivalent Volkswagen T-Cross, while the Ford Puma and Volkswagen T-Roc are priced slightly higher. For a cheaper cash buy, have a look at the Kia Stonic, but Kamiq's PCP finance deals are usually pretty tasty if you're paying monthly. Remember, the What Car? New Car Deals service can help you find the best price.

Officially, the 1.0 TSI 95 and 110 can achieve a combined fuel economy figure that’s close to 50mpg, and the 1.5 TSI 150 isn’t far behind. CO2 emissions are competitive, and the more powerful petrol proves cleaner than the 1.0 TSI 95. Bear that in mind if you're a company car driver looking to keep benefit-in-kind (BIK) tax bills low.

SE Drive adds different 17in wheels, rear privacy glass and the 9.2in touchscreen with gesture control, but doesn’t do a great deal else to justify the extra money. Pricier SE L Executive trim adds climate control, 18in alloys, power-folding door mirrors, keyless start, dynamic indicators and ambient lighting, although you can’t have the TSI 95 engine. Monte Carlo offers a sportier look with black roof rails, sports front seats and a panoramic sunroof. Overall, you get more toys for your money with the Puma, Stonic and Nissan Juke.

Overview

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.

  • Remarkably roomy seats and boot
  • Better-finished interior than many of its rivals
  • Comfortable ride
  • No sliding or reclining rear seats
  • Not especially well equipped
  • Other small SUVs have a higher driving position
