Skoda kamiq Review

The Skoda Kamiq is more spacious than many of the most popular small SUVs yet undercuts several of them on pricing.


The driving position in the Skoda Kamiq is very good, it has plenty of adjustment (including adjustable lumbar support) and the seat offers good side support in bends and is comfortable for long drives. The steering wheel has a lot of travel for height and reach and the dashboard buttons are arranged logically. The Kamiq is a good quality build, with soft-touch plastics on the top of the doors and dash. The starting point for the range, the SE, has an 8.0-inch screen for the infotainment. It’s okay, but the 9.2-inch screen fitted to the rest of the range is a lot better. As well as being bigger, it comes with satellite navigation, web radio, voice control and traffic sign recognition.

The screen is bright, clear, and easy to use, and there are shortcut buttons for quick navigation without getting lost in a maze of on-screen menus. Temperature controls are separate from the touchscreen, but some other air-con functions need to be accessed through the screen menus, which takes some time.
