Safety features include lane keeping assist and automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection and the option of adaptive cruise control. The entry-level version of the Skoda Kamiq features alloy wheels, air conditioning and DAB radio while the SE offers great value and is likely to be the most popular offering with a large infotainment screen, cruise control, smartphone connectivity and parking sensors. Other models feature satnav, two-zone climate control and larger alloy wheels. The interior is comfortable for families and adults with Skoda's clever design features such as an ice scraper in the fuel filler cap and the front door has an umbrella. The boot measures an impressive 400 litres so it's capable of carrying lots of luggage and shopping. Essentially, the Skoda Kamiq offers a practical and interesting choice in a competitive segment and while it is cheap to run, it's also a safe car packed with technology and using quality materials throughout. It is certainly a small SUV worth shortlisting.
