The latest assistance and infotainment systems feature as well as a generous amount of space and numerous famed ŠKODA ‘Simply Clever’ features. The boot has a capacity of 363 litres, which can be increased to 1,360 litres by folding down the asymmetrically split back seat (60:40).

Engine options for the new Kamiq will include 1.0-litre and 1.5-litre TSI petrol engines with a range of power outputs and a 1.6-litre TDI diesel (95 to 150 bhp). These engines can be coupled with a 5- or 6-speed manual gearbox or a 7-speed DSG automatic.

Style models are equipped with the 8.0-inch ‘Bolero’ infotainment unit and full LED headlights with AFS and dynamic front and rear indicators.

Ray Leddy, Head of Marketing & Product at ŠKODA Ireland, said:

“The Kamiq is another excellent product from ŠKODA. We are very ambitious for this new model and expect the KAMIQ to follow in the footsteps of the Karoq and Kodiaq. The KAMIQ has already seen unprecedented sales success on the continent; as a result, demand is expected to outstrip supply in many markets including Ireland. We would advise customers to order early to avoid disappointment.”
