The lines of the Skoda are clean and stylish. The car features a wide front grille and split headlamps which gives the Kamiq a distinctive front-on look.
From the side you can see the sensible (slightly boxy) lines, but from the back it’s very clean, the grey rear bumper adding a modern touch and highlighting the ground clearance.
Inside, the car has leather-appointed seats, a digital instrument display and ambient lighting which you can’t really see until you’re in the dark, then the thin LEDs give a soft red hue which complement the car’s sleek interior. Tinted windows are included with the Signature, along with 18-inch alloy wheels.
Other design features to note are the heated seats in the front and the back. It’s rare in this class for the two window seats in the back to have this feature, which the kids will love, particularly on a cold morning.
The car has a confident feel, especially in the optional Velvet Red paint, but this eye-catching colour costs an additional $1100 compared with the other options. Skoda calls the glass roof ‘a panoramic sunroof’, it’s $1300 extra, but keep in mind, it doesn’t open.
