Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Skoda Kamiq hatchback?

If the Skoda Kamiq is a little too soft for your tastes and you want something sportier, try a Seat Arona. It isn't quite so spacious for rear seat passengers and the interior has none of the soft-touch plastics you'll find in the Skoda, but the boot is still one of the largest in this class, plus it comes with similarly peppy performance because it uses the same range of engines.

One of the criticisms of the Kamiq is that its rear seats don't slide or recline to improve interior flexibility, which is something that owners of the Renault Captur have enjoyed ever since it arrived back in 2013. You'll need to go for a facelifted 2017 example to get the improved dashboard, and the engines aren't as refined as the ones fitted to the Kamiq, but you will at least have the high driving position small SUV buyers are looking for.

  • Better-finished inside than many of its rivals
  • Comfortable ride
  • No sliding or reclining rear seats
  • Not especially well equipped
