Skoda Kamiq

(2019 - present)

The Skoda Kamiq is a small SUV/crossover, that sits underneath the larger Karoq in the Skoda SUV family. It was launched in late 2019, and shares most of its key mechanical parts with the Volkswagen T-Cross.

Many of the reviews we have analysed for the Kamiq so far have been short road tests from the international and UK launch events, rather than more extensive and comprehensive reviews, so it’s possible that its overall Expert Rating could alter by a few percentage points in coming months once more journalists have spent more time driving the car.

As of May 2020, the Skoda Kamiq holds a very good Expert Rating of 80%, which ranks it third in a class of 19 cars we have analysed to date – behind the Ford Puma and the closely-related Volkswagen T-Cross. The Kamiq has been praised for its comfort, practicality and value for money, while the only real criticisms have been that it doesn’t really stand out in any particular way.
