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

Set to take on everything from the Mazda CX-3 and related Volkswagen T-Cross to the Mitsubishi ASX and Kia Seltos, the Kamiq arrives in local 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 as well as the Skoda Scala hatchback, Volkswagen Polo and Audi A1.


  • 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


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.

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.


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), adaptive cruise control, lane assist, fatigue detection, tyre pressure monitoring, multi collision brake, as well as front and rear seatbelt reminders.


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.
