It may be late to the party, but Skoda is making a big entrance into the compact SUV segment with its all-new Kamiq.

The 110TSI variants belatedly join the range in February after being affected by the same stop-sale as the Scala hatchback.

“Skoda’s Scala and Kamiq 110TSI have been on stop sale due to an error message that appeared during initial start-up. The cause was a delay in the airbag signal reaching the engine control unit,” said a spokesperson from Skoda.

“It didn’t show on restarting the car. Even though there was no mechanical fault, Skoda would not sell the cars until the glitch was solved.”

Set to take on everything from the Mazda CX-3 and related Volkswagen T-Cross to the Mitsubishi ASX and Kia Seltos, the Kamiq is available in Australian showrooms with three trim levels, two engine options, and a slew of available features and technologies.

The Kamiq rides on the Volkswagen Group’s MQB A0 platform for entry-level models, shared with the aforementioned T-Cross and Scala, as well as the Volkswagen Polo and Audi A1.

Pricing

  • Kamiq 85TSI 6MT: $26,990
  • Kamiq 85TSI DSG: $27,990
  • Kamiq 110TSI Monte Carlo DSG: $34,190
  • Kamiq 110TSI Limited Edition: $35,490

All prices listed above are before on-road costs

However, Skoda is launching the Kamiq with the drive-away deals as listed below:

  • Kamiq 85TSI 6MT: $27,990
  • Kamiq 85TSI DSG: $29,990
  • Kamiq 110TSI Monte Carlo DSG: $36,990
  • Kamiq 110TSI Limited Edition DSG: $36,990

If you are looking for a more accurate idea of pricing, you can use Skoda’s stock-locator to find cars available around your area and get drive-away pricing. Alternatively you use the official Skoda Kamiq configurator to build and get an idea of pricing of one in your own specification.

Engines

Two powertrains are available in the local Kamiq line-up.

Models designated ‘85TSI‘ feature a 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbo petrol engine, developing 85kW and 200Nm, mated to either a six-speed manual or seven-speed DSG automatic transmission.

If you want a bit more go, the ‘110TSI‘ Monte Carlo and Limited Edition variants feature a 1.5-litre turbo four shared with the Scala hatchback, bumping outputs to a respectable 110kW and 250Nm.

The more powerful engine is mated to the seven-speed DSG as standard, with all models driving the front wheels exclusively.

You can find further details on the engine official Skoda Kamiq brochure sheet as well as more information on performance and fuel consumption

Fuel Economy

The Kamiq 85TSI claims to use 5.0L/100km with the standard manual, and 5.1L/100km with the optional seven-speed DSG.

Skoda says the more powerful Kamiq 110TSI will use 5.6L/100km, all on the combined cycle.

Dimensions

The Kamiq measures 4241mm long, 1793mm wide and 1531mm tall, with a 2651mm wheelbase.

By comparison, the Volkswagen T-Cross is 4108mm long, 1760mm wide and 1583mm tall, with a 2563mm wheelbase.

In terms of luggage capacity, the Kamiq claims to offer 400L in five-seat configuration and 1395L with the second row folded.

You can find additional details on internal and external dimensions within the Skoda Kamiq brochure.

Warranty and Servicing

Like the wider Skoda range, the Kamiq is covered by the Czech brand’s five-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty.

For added convenience there are three- and five-year service packs available for all models at the point of sale – three years is $800, while five years is $1400.

You can find a detailed break down of the service intervals and their respective prices on the Skoda website.

Safety

ANCAP is yet to give the Kamiq a safety rating in Australia, but the smallest Skoda crossover scored a full five-star crash rating in Euro NCAP tests – likely spelling a 2019-stamped five-star rating for ANCAP given the shared protocols.

The Kamiq managed an impressive 96 per cent for adult occupant protection, 85 per cent for child occupants, 80 per cent for vulnerable road users and 76 per cent for safety assist.

It’s worth noting, however, the Kamiq’s five-star score is based on the Scala’s assessment, with Euro NCAP declaring the body structures of both vehicles identical, though some tests were conducted where the raised ride height of the Kamiq could return different results.

Standard safety equipment includes:

  • Seven airbags
  • Autonomous emergency braking (AEB)
  • Lane-keeping assist
  • Fatigue detection
  • Multi-collision brake
  • Rear manoeuvre braking assist

Blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert are optional.

You can find official commentary on the safety features on the Skoda Kamiq website. As well as a detailed breakdown of the safety features offered against each of the Kamiq variants within the official Skoda Kamiq brochure.
