2024 Skoda Kamiq: price, specs and release date

Written By Richard Aucock

New 2024 Skoda Kamiq

The new Skoda Kamiq receives a tidy update ready for 2024 to help maintain its position as the firm’s best-selling SUV.

The popular small SUV has crisper styling, tweaked equipment levels and a new fully-digital instrument display to keep it at the top of its game. This will complement its famed attributes of practicality, efficiency and all-round robustness.

Challengers to the new Skoda Kamiq are numerous and include the Volkswagen T-Cross, Ford Puma, Honda HR-V, Toyota Yaris Cross, SEAT Arona, Nissan Juke, Peugeot 2008 and Renault Captur. The new Skoda Kamiq is an able alternative to them all.

New 2024 Skoda Kamiq price and release date

Now it has been fully revealed, the new Skoda Kamiq is likely to be released for ordering later in 2023. First deliveries are expected in spring 2024.

New Skoda Kamiq prices should mirror today’s model, which starts from around £23,500. The new car has extra features, but Skoda will still be keen to keep it competitive, so expect the range to open from around £24,000.

The new Skoda Kamiq has a restructured model line, making it easier to buy or lease. The three trim variants are SE, SE L and Monte Carlo, with customers also able to add customisation packs on top.

New 2024 Skoda Kamiq: exterior and interior

The exterior changes to the new Skoda Kamiq are focused on making it look more rugged and SUV-like. The grille is larger and more upright, while the lower bumper has been redesigned with a sharper profile. SE L models and above have LED fog lights integrated into the lower side air curtains.

The new Skoda Kamiq shows off its SUV roots with a silver diffuser styled to replicate typical 4x4 underbody protection. There’s an enlarged diffuser at the rear too, which emphasises the car’s width. Skoda lettering on the tailgate is a neat new touch, too.

The sporty-looking Skoda Kamiq Monte Carlo continues to offer glossy black exterior styling for the grille, door mirrors, side skirts, roof rails and model lettering. Alloy wheels are finished in a brushed black finish.

The new Skoda Kamiq has an updated interior with an 8.0-inch Digital Display for the driver, and a freestanding 8.25-inch infotainment display with glazed front in the centre – a larger 9.2-inch Skoda Navigation display is available as an option. This is complemented by a redesigned Climatronic climate control system on higher grade models.

There are new seat covers and door panels which include recycled fabrics along with hemp and kenaf (a type of hibiscus). Skoda says the resigned panels mimic ‘modern living environments’. There are new design packs too – ‘Studio’ in entry-level SE, plus four different options in SE L, either Loft, Lodge, Suite or Dynamic. These give plenty of choice for those buying or leasing a new Skoda Kamiq.

Available as an option for the first time on the new Skoda Kamiq are the firm’s ultra-bright Top LED Matrix headlights. These have distinctive hexagonal matrix modules and include automatic main bean functionality for safer night-time driving.

Another sector-first feature in the new Skoda Kamiq is a ‘hands-free’ electric tailgate that can be operated by swiping a foot under the rear bumper. Skoda calls it the Virtual Pedal.

New 2024 Skoda Kamiq: fuel economy and performance

The new Skoda Kamiq continues to offer a fuel-efficient range of petrol turbo engines. The core engine is the 1.0-litre TSI three-cylinder, which in 95ps entry-level guise is paired with a five-speed manual gearbox. We expect 0-62mph performance in around 11.0 seconds.

The other 1.0-litre TSI engine now produces 115ps, which is a 5ps increase over the outgoing car. It has a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, and is available with an optional seven-speed DSG automatic. Expect 0-62mph in around 10.0 seconds – and both engines should have fuel economy upwards of 50mpg.

The new Skoda Kamiq is also available with a 1.5-litre TSI four-cylinder engine, which produces 150ps. This is a clever engine that includes ACT cylinder deactivation technology – two cylinders are should down when cruising, to boost fuel economy. We expect 0-62mph performance in around 8.0 seconds, while the clever tech should still serve up 50mpg fuel economy.

All new Skoda Kamiq are front-wheel drive. They have long-travel suspension for a comfortable ride and good rough-road abilities. A standard suspension setup is complemented by a sportier alternative that’s lowered by 10mm. Skoda also offers large 18-inch alloy wheels as an option.

Ford Puma Review 2023: Exterior Front

Can’t wait for a new Skoda Kamiq? Time to consider a Ford Puma…

The Ford Puma is a small SUV alternative to the Skoda Kamiq – and it has some practicality tricks of its own up its sleeve. These include the ingenious Ford MegaBox in the boot – an ultra-deep extra compartment beneath the regular boot floor that even has a drain hole in the bottom so you can rinse it out with a hosepipe. You can buy or lease a new Ford Puma, or choose from the growing number of used Ford Pumas on sale.

Looking for more new car news?

Another new Skoda we’re looking forward to here at heycar is the 2024 Skoda Superb. It's set to offer even more space than the acclaimed current car, plus a plug-in hybrid model alongside core petrol and diesel versions. The new 2024 Mercedes-Benz CLE is a nice contrast to the practical Skodas. It's a svelte two-door, four-seat coupe, that again will be available in long-range plug-in hybrid guise. 

The new Skoda Kamiq is available in nine different colours – two solid and seven metallic. Phoenix Orange metallic is a new colour option.

The Skoda Kamiq Monte Carlo is the range-topping model. It has a sporty look, with more glossy black detailing and a moodier interior.

The Skoda Kamiq is a famously practical model and the new version continues that trend. It has lots of passenger space and an ultra-roomy 400-litre boot – it’s bigger than the boot in a Volkswagen Golf!
