Skoda’s new SUV, Skoda Kamiq, arrives in Australia in the third quarter of 2020 with the current powertrain: a 110kW/250Nm with a 1.5-litre turbo-petrol, four-cylinder front-wheel-drive.

What car is the Skoda Kamiq based on

Skoda is releasing a new SUV that is based on Volkswagen Group's MQB platform, which has state-of-the-art driver assistance and infotainment systems.

A guide to the latest features of Skoda Kamiq

Skoda introduces its first crossover, the all-new Kamiq. You can’t help but be so drawn to the newly-released, bold design that combines both luxury and vehicle practicality. The Kamiq’s unique character forges its own way forward, with another signature feature of this Skoda crossover being compact in size and robust design which is ideal for a bumpy ride to the city.

This sizable great companion, but robust urban vehicle offers the perfect value for your investment! Whether you bring your family along the ride or a significant other, this vehicle will surely cater to your passenger and driver needs.

In short, with the Kamiq, you get a spacious city car with the added perks of an SUV. Your companions will benefit from the 73mm knee room capacity and 400-litre boot space.

As a new Skoda Kamiq car owner, you can now effortlessly rise above the city’s everyday traffic with just as much needed enjoyment from Skoda’s wide-ranging comfort features and cutting-edge technology.

The Kamiq becomes the most connected Skoda there is to-date. This has been made possible with the latest version of the company’s infotainment system, looking in-depth at its development.

Its infotainment system has a 9.2-inch screen display with an optional upgrade to a 10.25-inch having a Virtual Cockpit digital cluster available for use.

The technology doesn’t go out without the driver assistance systems, creating an autonomous emergency braking whenever necessary. The technology includes a cyclist and pedestrian detection, a lane-keep lane depart assist, a smart adaptive cruise control, with an optional Crew Protect Assist system that protects both you and your passengers through closing any open windows and anticipates any potential collision in the way.

Skoda confirms the Kamiq’s design will be manufactured with five engine options you can choose from which starts with a 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbo-petrol engine that is capable of producing 70kW and 175Nm. This is matched with a five-speed manual gearbox.

For particular markets, Skoda will offer its 66kW/145Nm 1.0-litre G-Tec motor in the Kamiq. This engine feature is designed to run on just natural gas, which contributes a lower CO2 and Nox emission compared to conventional fuels available in the market.

Future Kamiq car owners may dive deep into other perks that may be available. They may start looking for a more dynamic drive Sport Chassis Control option box which lowers the vehicle height by 10mm and adds a ‘Sport’ driving mode. We have stiffer shock absorbers for this.

With all these perks from an SUV wrapped up in this model, Skoda’s Kamiq is ‘Simply Clever’. We can’t help but accept that technology is increasingly becoming a big motivator for buyers in the SUV segment, and Skoda understands that completely with the type of cards they’ve released.
