Product Overview

Skoda Kamiq (chassis code NW4) is a subcompact crossover in production from 2018. It is available with a range of inline-3 and inline-4 engines that displaced 1.0 to 1.6 liters.
Compared to other vehicles in its class, the VW Polo-based Kamiq is an uninspiring vehicle with nothing that stands out. It is essentially a clumsier variant of the hatchback.
The Skoda Kamiq is limited to inline-4, which just a decade ago would be considered inadequate but which is what most have to live with today, thanks to regulations.

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
The Kamiq is set to join bigger SUV-ish brothers the Karoq and Kodiaq in UK showrooms later this year. The car uses the Volkswagen Group’s MQB-A0 supermini platform, which in turn means it can only have front-wheel drive and torsion beam rear suspension. Performance is respectable, although we're not sure you’d want a lesser engine.

Pros
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Decent infotainment and connectivity
Cons
  • No front-wheel drive or torsion beam rear suspension

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
The 1.0-litre three-pot is paired with a six-speed manual ‘box. It develops 114bhp and 148lb ft, and enables the Kamiq to sprint from 0-62mph in a leisurely 9.9sec. Its Scala sibling is slightly larger than the class norm and, on its standard, passive, suspension, exhibits an occasionally patchy ride.

Pros
  • Comfortable to drive

Cons
  • Pricier than rivals
  • Ridiculously patchy ride

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
The Kamiq Monte Carlo is one of - or quite possibly the - most practical car in its class. It’s a full 10cm longer than the similarly positioned Seat Arona, with clear benefits to rear leg room. The 1.5-litre four-cylinder motor, offered on a wide variety of VW Group models, makes for quite brisk performance.

Pros
  • Powerful engine
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Decent ride quality
Cons
  • No adaptive dampers
  • No wheel-mounted gearshift paddles

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
Despite its dinky dimensions, the Kamiq is a credible alternative to more conventional hatchback models like the Ford Focus or Volkswagen Golf. The cabin feels well screwed together, and there's loads of kit no matter which trim you go for. All of Skoda's usual ‘Simply Clever' features remain, making this a fantastically adept family car.

Pros
  • Fantastic all-rounder
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Decent infotainment system
Cons
  • Not quite as flexible as a Citroen C3 Aircross

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The Skoda Kamiq is as impressive here as it was when we drove it in France a couple of months ago. It drives neatly and offers loads of space, as well as a solid, well-built interior. The reason this version loses half a star ultimately comes down to value. The mid-spec SE offers a better balance of kit versus cost.

Pros
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Good standard equipment
  • Decent infotainment system
Cons
  • Lacklustre engine

autoexpress[6]

Reviewer score 61%
Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The Monte Carlo takes the Kamiq's good bits and adds extra power and equipment, even if it's pricier than lower-powered, mid-level models. It's a sporty trim, and the gloss black exterior detailing looks good, along with the standard 18-inch alloy wheels. There are also LED headlights, a panoramic roof, a digital dash and some sports seats. There's also autonomous braking and blind-spot detection, plus dual-zone climate control.

Pros
  • Looks great
  • Lots of equipment
  • Decent ride quality
Cons
  • DSG transmission is a little laboured
  • Noisy at low speeds

Reviewers from carmagazine have found the following***:
The Kamiq is a good car. It's family-friendly with a spacious and cleverly laid-out interior that feels well-built and loaded with a good amount of equipment and useful touches. The ride and steering are from the same stable. There's an optional £495 Sport Chassis Control which sits 15mm lower than standard cars.

Pros

Reviewers from carwow have found the following***:
The Skoda Kamiq faithfully adheres to the brand's ‘Simply Clever' message by offering all the things buyers need, but without much of a fanfare. The two-piece headlights look just like those on the bigger Kodiaq SUV while the posh Skoda lettering on the bootlid is a clear nod to the stylish Scala hatchback. The back seats are very generous for a small SUV, too – even without the sliding rear seats like those in a VW T-Cross and Citroen C3 Aircross.

Pros
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Lots of standard safety features
Cons
  • Lack of boot space
  • Not the most fun to drive

The 1.6 TDI proved to be well-insulated noise-wise and returned an indicated 45mpg on a mostly motorway-based test route. The main touchscreen's tile-based interface is logical and snappy. Safety-wise, the bodyshell is almost all high-strength steel and you get Lane Assist, Front Assist withCityEmergency BrakeandPredictive Pedestrian Protection.

Pros
