The baby SUV market has some of the toughest competition of any class, but still Skoda has endeavoured to enlarge its market share with a 2024 update for its Kamiq. This model is the smallest of Skoda’s SUV lineup, sitting beneath the mid-sized Karoq and the seven-seater Kodiaq.

It shares DNA with other Volkswagen Group SUVs like the SEAT Arona and the Volkswagen T-Cross, and has long been a commendable family car, but its authenticity as an SUV remains dubious.

Skoda has sought to bring the Kamiq’s likeness closer to that of a proper SUV with a series of styling and engine updates, including a new bigger grille and headlight structure. Though even with the updates, the Kamiq has got its work cut out to top the small SUV class.

The Ford Puma is the driver’s choice yet remains very nearly as sensible as the Skoda. There’s also the stylish Nissan Juke to consider, even if its engine range isn’t as broad. That’s not something you can say about the Peugeot 2008 which is even available as a full electric car. Those after a more premium option are best served by the Audi Q2.

The Kamiq is now available in three trim configurations: base-level SE, SE L and the range-topping Monte Carlo spec with sporty touches inside and out though no improvement on performance. Elements of the cabin have also received a refresh for 2024, with new tech fitted as standard including an eight-inch infotainment screen and a more powerful wireless phoen charging box.

Over the next few pages of our Skoda Kamiq review we’ll thoroughly inspect all aspects of it and rate them in our verdict. Our scores take into account the driving experience, how pleasant the interior is, the practicality on offer and what it’ll cost you to run.
