Skoda’s smallest SUV has got its three-pot back.

    UPDATE, 05/05/2022 – Skoda Australia has confirmed the Kamiq range will once again open locally with a turbocharged three-cylinder 85TSI variant, now wearing the 85TSI name. It also axed both the 110TSI Ambition manual and dual-clutch variants.

    Prices for the Kamiq Monte Carlo and Signature was increased by $1000.

    Skoda Australia also confirmed blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert remain temporarily unavailable due to semiconductor shortages, as previously reported. Affected vehicle customers will receive a $350 discount.

    The 110TSI Monte Carlo with the optional Travel Pack still misses out on blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, as well as the Canton sound system due to semiconductor shortages. Affected vehicle customers will receive an $800 discount.

    Monte Carlo and Signature models produced from April onwards regain full LED headlights with Skoda’s Adaptive Front Light System and cornering functionality, but without front dynamic indicators.

    The 2022 range is on sale now, and started arriving in showrooms during July 2021.

    Skoda withdrew the three-cylinder 85TSI in 2021, announcing it had sold out of the model. It was replaced by a four-cylinder 110TSI Ambition, while a new top-spec Signature replaced the Limited Edition.

    Prices were increased by $1000 earlier in 2022.

    “The brand absorbed price increase pressures throughout 2021, but at some point these have to be passed on,” said a Skoda Australia spokesperson in February.

    “Essentially the price rises are due to both inflation and significant increase in manufacturing costs.”

    The 2021 Kamiq is pictured throughout this story, as the car’s exterior and interior designs haven’t changed, nor have their specifications beyond the engine.


    • 2022 Skoda Kamiq 85TSI Style: $37,990

    All prices are drive-away.


    The Kamiq 85TSI Style is powered by a 1.0-litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine producing 85kW of power and 200Nm of torque. This is mated exclusively to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission with drive sent to the front wheels only.

    Kamiq 110TSI variants are also front-wheel drive and use a seven-speed dual-clutch, but are powered by a 1.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine producing 110kW and 250Nm.

    Fuel Economy

    Skoda claims the Kamiq 85TSI Style has a combined fuel economy figure of 5.4L/100km, whereas the Kamiq 110TSI variants have a claimed combined fuel economy figure of 5.6L/100km.


    The 2022 Skoda Kamiq measures 4241mm long, 1793mm wide and 1531mm tall, with a 2651mm wheelbase.

    There are three-, five- and seven-year service packs available for all models, costing $800, $1500, and $2100, respectively.
