► Light facelift and fresh tech inside
► Prices start from £24k

Skoda has released the prices and opened up the order books for its new small SUV, the facelifted Kamiq. The Czech marque has confirmed that the base-spec SE model starts from £24,030, though for that price, customers can expect a lot of tech and other features as standard.

The Kamiq SE comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, along with an 8.25-inch infotainment display and an 8-inch digital cluster display. Full LED headlights, rear parking sensors and keyless stop/start are also standard on the SE.

For an extra £1,400, both the 1.0-litre 114bhp and 1.5-litre 148bhp engines available for the SE can be configured with a seven-speed DSG automatic gearbox.

Like its sibling, the Skoda Scala hatchback, the Kamiq is available in three specifications: SE, SE L and Monte Carlo.

Moving up the range, the Kamiq SE L starts from £27,175 in its most modest 1.0-litre, 114bhp form, and features 18-inch alloy wheels, a 9.2-inch navigation display and a 10.25-inch virtual cockpit display as standard. A 1.5-litre 148hp version of the SE L is also available and starts from £28,565.

At the top of the range, the sportier Kamiq Monte Carlo starts from £29,275 with the same 1.0-litre 114hp engine as the base-spec SE L while the upgraded 1.5-litre edition will set you back £30,665. A seven-speed DSG automatic gearbox is also available on the 1.0-litre 114bhp and the 1.5-litre 148bhp versions of the SE L and the Monte Carlo.

The facelifted Kamiq will breathe new life into Skoda’s assault on the small SUV segment. It’ll offer renewed competition for the likes of the Ford Puma, Vauxhall Mokka and Peugeot 2008. However, it won’t be able to compete with its Stellantis rivals on the electrification front. The Kamiq is based on the same MQB A0 platform as the SEAT Arona and Volkswagen T-Cross, neither of which are available with any form of hybrid or pure-electric power.

Deliveries are expected to start in the second quarter of 2024.

So, what’s changed for the facelifted Skoda Kamiq?

Not much. Cosmetic changes are limited to a new front bumper with additional painted elements, reshaped LED headlights, a larger radiator grille, redesigned tail lamps and a new silver rear undertray. Those new lights are slimmer up top, larger lower down and that they will be available with LED Matrix technology for the first time.

Skoda will also fit the latest version of its badging to the Kamiq’s tailgate and introduce a range of new alloy wheel designs. The exterior changes will be rounded off with an updated colour palette.

Inside, the changes are mild, too. Skoda’s introduced some new upholstery finishes and a smattering of more sustainable materials around the car’s interior. All the company’s ‘Simply Clever’ extras (such as the umbrella housed within the rear doors and the ice scraper mounted on the inside of the fuel filler cap) also remain.

What engines will be available with the facelifted Kamiq?

The facelifted Kamiq will feature two new 1.0 litre TSI motors from Skoda’s more efficient evo2 family of engines. The cheapest model will have a 1.0-litre three-cylinder unit, the middling option will be powered by a 114bhp 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine while the top-spec car will receive a 146bhp 1.5-litre four-pot.

All three engines will send drive to the front wheels. However, the 114bhp and 146bhp engines will both get six-speed manual gearbox as standard, while the 94bhp unit will need to make do with a five-speed manual.
