The Škoda Kamiq is a subcompact crossover SUV (B-segment), produced by the Czech car manufacturer Škoda Auto from the end of June 2019, after it debuted at the February 2019 Geneva Auto Show.[2] It is smallest of the other Skoda SUVs sold in Europe, namely the Karoq, Enyaq, and Kodiaq. Deliveries officially started in September 2019.[3] It is based on the concept Vision X, which Škoda first introduced to the public in 2018. As with the Karoq and Kodiaq, the Kamiq name is based on a word from the Inuit language.[4]

Overview[edit]

While it takes styling cues from both the Karoq and Kodiaq to ensure a continuity between Skoda's SUVs, the Kamiq has several distinctive features, including a more upright grille and an optional narrow LED running lights. As with the new Scala, the boot displays the Skoda name in letters instead of the circular Skoda logo.[5]

The car is built on the Volkswagen Group MQB A0 platform used by the SEAT Arona and Volkswagen T-Cross, while offering more interior space than both. Škoda claims that the Kamiq has more rear legroom than in the Octavia and Karoq.[4] The Kamiq is only offered with front-wheel drive since it is aimed primarily to families in urban areas and the MQB A0 platform that it uses does not support all-wheel drive drivetrain.[4]

The global version of the Kamiq is unrelated to the Chinese Kamiq, as the latter is larger and built on an older platform, but Škoda chose to name both as the Kamiq they are the smallest SUVs it offers in each market.

Powertrain[edit]

Five engine options are available for the Kamiq. The entry-level engine is a 1.0-litre TSI delivering 95 PS (70 kW; 94 hp) and produces maximum torque of 175 N⋅m (129 lb⋅ft). Another 1.0-litre TSI engine has a power output of 115 PS (85 kW; 113 hp), and generates torque of 200 N⋅m (148 lb⋅ft). The range-topping engine is the 4-cylinder 1.5-litre TSI with a power output of 150 PS (110 kW; 148 hp) and 250 N⋅m (184 lb⋅ft) of torque with an Active Cylinder Technology (ACT) which automatically shuts down two cylinders to save fuel.

The 4-cylinder 1.6-litre TDI diesel engine delivering 115 PS (85 kW; 113 hp) offers torque of 250 N⋅m (184 lb⋅ft). It is fitted with an SCR catalytic converter with AdBlue injection and a diesel particulate filter as standard. The CNG engine is a 1.0 G-Tec which has a power output of 90 PS (66 kW; 89 hp) and maximum torque of 145 N⋅m (107 lb⋅ft).[6]
