Skoda prices all-new Kamiq from $26,990 plus ORC
Four-variant, two-engine Skoda Kamiq small SUV line-up here in late September
13 Aug 2020
SKODA Australia has announced the pricing and specification of its first-ever small SUV, the pint-sized Kamiq crossover, which will land in Australian showrooms in late September priced from $26,990 plus on-road costs.
The four-variant range tops out at $35,490, pricing it competitively against its Volkswagen T-Cross mechanical sibling (from $27,990), as well as other city SUVs like the Nissan Juke ($27,990) and Renault Captur ($25,990).
Of the four variants, the Kamiq range will be separated into three distinct model grades – 85TSI, 110TSI Monte Carlo and 110TSI Limited Edition, the latter of which is obviously available for a limited time.
The entry-level 85TSI is underpinned by a 1.0-litre turbo-petrol three-cylinder engine good for 85kW/200Nm, driving the front wheels and paired to either a six-speed manual transmission or for an extra $1000, a seven-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic.
Combined fuel consumption for the 85TSI pair is rated at a frugal 5.0 and 5.1 litres per 100km for the manual and DSG respectively.
The more powerful 110TSI grades are motivated by a larger 1.5-litre four-pot turbo-petrol mill which develops 110kW/250Nm, with the DSG being the sole transmission choice.
Unsurprisingly, the larger engine is also thirstier, with an official consumption of 5.6L/100km.
From the outside, standard equipment on the base-level 85TSI includes 18-inch Crater alloy wheels, LED tail-lights with dynamic indicators, privacy glass, black window surrounds, silver roof rails, electric, heated foldable exterior mirrors, and an automatic tailgate.
Inside, it scores an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, eight-speaker sound system, wireless phone charging, the Virtual Cockpit digital instrument cluster, dual-zone air conditioning, ambient interior lighting, keyless entry, height-adjustable driver and passenger seat with lumbar support, multifunction sports flat-bottom steering wheel, floor mats, luggage compartment mat and auto-dimming rearview mirror.
Standard safety kit extends to autonomous emergency braking with city emergency brake, lane assist, adaptive cruise control, multi collision brake, rear manoeuvre braking assist, tyre pressure monitor, rain-sensing wipers, tyre pressure monitor, fatigue detection, rearview camera with rear parking sensors and seven airbags.
The Monte Carlo builds on the spec of the 85TSI and adds 18-inch Vega black alloys, black exterior design elements, panoramic sunroof, full LED headlights, dynamic front indicators, Monte Carlo sports seats, sports pedals and a 15mm lower chassis with drive mode select.
Topping the range is the Limited Edition, which adds 18-inch Crater alloys, body-coloured door mirror caps, chrome grille frame and rear lettering, silver roof rails, cornering headlights, automatic park assist with front parking sensors, larger 9.2-inch infotainment system with voice control and wireless Apple CarPlay, heated front and rear seats, leather/Suedia upholstery and electric driver’s seat.
Additionally, option packages are available including the $4100 Driver Support pack on the 85TSI, which includes leather/Suedia upholstery, automatic parking assist, side assist, blind spot detection, heated front and rear seats, electric driver’s seat and rear traffic alert.
85TSI buyers can also option the $3800 Tech pack, which bundles the 9.2-inch touchscreen, full LED headlights with adaptive lighting and dynamic indicators, Skoda sound system, wireless Apple CarPlay and voice control.
Monte Carlo buyers have access to the $4300 Travel Pack, which includes automatic parking assist, side assist, blind spot detection, Skoda sound system, heated front and rear seats, the 9.2-inch screen, steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters and wireless Apple CarPlay.
All Kamiq models come with a five-year/unlimited kilometre warranty, capped price servicing and the option of three- or five-year service packs, asking $800 and $1400 respectively.
Through the first seven months of the year, Skoda has sold a combined 3403 vehicles, down 18.2 per cent on the 4159 managed to the same point last year.
