Used Skoda Kamiq for sale
In 2019, Skoda brought a small SUV, titled the Kamiq, to market. Featuring similar design prompts to the larger Kodiaq and Karoq SUVs, the Kamiq is a brilliant alternative to traditional family hatchbacks.
As the SUV market continues to be a popular one, competition has become fierce. But the Kodiaq is good value for money and offers a range of features that make it a strong candidate, such as:
- A spacious and comfortable interior
- Various engine configurations
- Numerous bits of available kit
- An uber-practical boot space
Discover the benefits of a used Skoda Kodiaq in more detail below.
Engines and Driving Experience
The engine range kicks off with a 1.0-litre petrol engine possessing either 95 or 115bhp. A larger 1.5-litre petrol engine provides more power with 150bhp and a respectable 0 to 62mph time of 8.3 seconds for getting around town in a sharp fashion.
A 1.6-litre diesel variant can also be found on the used car market, capable of achieving up to 66mpg making it ideal for those who travel long distances on a regular basis. Both automatic and manual gearboxes can also be found.
Skoda traditionally put a focus on comfort over excitement, but the Kamiq provides a good balance between the two. By no means is it a hot hatchback, but it handles more like a hatchback than it does an SUV.
Practicality and Running Costs
Skoda and practicality are basically joined at the hip, and the Kamiq was built with this focus as well. All passengers have enough head and legroom to enjoy the joys of the Kamiq and the ISOFIX mounting points are easily accessible, meaning less hassle when fitting child seats.
The design of the Kamiq results in a practically shaped boot space of 400 litres when the seats are in place. Fold these down, and you're provided with a sizeable increase to 1,395 litres, which is ideal when transporting bigger pieces of luggage.
Running costs are also fairly reasonable, insurance starts at group 11 (out of 50) and ends at group 17, meaning all specifications can be insured without breaking the bank. Any Evans Halshaw dealership is able to deal with any servicing or maintenance requirements.
Interior, Technology and Safety
Typically Skoda is how we'd describe the interior - practical, robust and comfortable. All dashboard controls can be accessed by the driver without straining themselves and the seats provide pleasure whilst all occupants enjoy the ride.
The entry-level S specification is fairly basic, but comes with a handful of gadgets that make life easier such as lane assist and a 6.5-inch touchscreen display. Higher specifications such as the SE L provide luxuries such as Amundsen satellite navigation and parking aids to give a more premium feel.
High safety ratings is standard practice for the engineers at Skoda nowadays, with the Kamiq receiving the full five-star Euro NCAP score. A range of safety equipment provides further confidence to you and your family, such as:
- Front assist (collision-alert safety system)
- Blind spot detection
- Parking cameras
- Emergency call
Is the Skoda Kamiq right for me?
Many British families seek a vehicle that is larger than a traditional family hatchback, but not quite as large as some of the mammoth SUVs you see out on the road. The Skoda Kamiq is an ideal candidate for those families thanks to a practical boot and a comfortable ride.
Other alternatives such as the Ford Puma offer intelligent hybrid systems that are more cost-effective. The Hyundai Kona and Renault Captur are also arguably sleeker thanks to their futuristic exterior styling.
Either way, the Skoda Kamiq is still a great candidate and shouldn't be overlooked.
