Over the years, there’s just no denying that SUVs and crossovers are taking the roads by storm. This 2020, the renowned Czech automobile manufacturer Skoda will be releasing their new Skoda Kamiq – their latest SUV following the Kodiaq and the Koraq which they released in 2016 and 2017, respectively.
The Skoda Kamiq is expected to be released in the third quarter of this year. If you’re excited, then definitely keep reading. Here is everything you need to know about the upcoming Skoda Kamiq:
What’s the engine of the Kamiq?
There are 5 engine variations available for the Kamiq. If a steady cruise is more like your driving style, then having the 70 kW (94 Hp) 1.0 TSI engine might be enough for you. Reaching a top speed of 181 km/h (112 mph) is not something to be taken lightly, but it’s also not the fastest.
If you’re looking for a faster option, Skoda has got you covered. It isn’t Tesla numbers but the 1.5 TSI engine can go from 0–100 km/h in just 8.3 seconds, capable of reaching a top speed of 213 km/h (132 mph).
Both of the mentioned engines of the new Skoda Kamiq run on petrol, however, if you prefer diesel, the 85 kW (114 Hp) 1.6 TDI engine is the one for you.
How’s the interior of the new Kamiq?
When it comes to adjustability, the new Kamiq is just about for everyone. There is so much room for the steering wheel and driver’s seat to move to fit your driving style. There’s also a lot of comfort on the side of the seat which is great for long-distance travel and just casual cruising while keeping your back in a healthy position.
How does the Kamiq drive?
When it comes to suspension, the new Skoda Kamiq reigns king. Neither the Nissan Juke, Volkswagen T-Roc, nor the T-Cross can come close to the way the Kamiq handles potholes, sharp turns, humps, and ridges. With the added option to attach an adaptive suspension, the Kamiq can traverse a rugged path with ease by a simple press of a button.
When it comes to steering, it’s very precise and effortless. And thanks to its size, it can go through the tough challenges in urban and rural roads with no hassle at all.

If you’re a tall person looking for a small SUV to drive around, you should definitely try the Kamiq. There is so much headroom and legroom without compromising your driving comfort and the comfort of other passengers, as they too have a lot of legroom.
Is the Skoda Kamiq a good buy?
With a petrol-fueled 1.0 TSI engine with 95 BHp priced around $30,300 AUD, the Skoda Kamiq offers a lot of features for its price. And if you’re not so tight about the budget, you have the option to add a lot of extra features that wouldn’t cost you more than $3,000 AUD.
Overall, the new Skoda Kamiq is definitely a contender for the best in its calibre, offering a lot of versatility to accommodate just about anyone at a very affordable price.
