The Kamiq’s compact dimensions and cat-like handling certainly don’t impede its everyday practicality, though. With 400 litres of luggage space – easily expandable to 1395 litres with the 60:40 split rear seats folded down – it’s perfect for a big family food shop, a day of sport or DIY, or a weekend getaway with family or friends.
An optional electric tailgate makes loading and unloading even easier, while the optional variable boot floor is a helpful design feature that eliminates the rear loading lip – making it simpler to slide heavy objects in and out.
A foldable front passenger seat lets you transport longer objects with ease, while 26 litres worth of cubbies dotted around the stylish interior offer an abundance of practical storage. The Kamiq is just as generous for passengers, thanks to a subtly long wheelbase which offers plenty of rear legroom.
Finally, an optional fold-away tow bar – with a maximum towing weight of 1250kg, depending on which engine is chosen – offers even more options for active living.
Packed with ‘Simply Clever’ features
The Skoda Kamiq is also crammed with lots of little ‘Simply Clever’ features and useful add-ons that make everyday life even easier.
There’s the umbrella – ingeniously concealed within the driver’s door, ready for those days when the weather doesn’t play ball. Then there are the door edge protectors – small, hidden strips of plastic that automatically fold out as a door is opened, covering the edges to prevent accidental scrapes and dinks.
Integrated into the backrests of the front seats are foldable tables (complete with drinks holders) – perfect for a quick snack, a bit of doodling or watching a tablet. In the boot you’ll find plenty of load netting that lets you separate and organise your luggage however you want. A detachable torch also comes as standard – always there, just in case you need it on dark winter mornings.
The ice-scraper (which also doubles as a tyre tread depth gauge) concealed on the inside of the fuel filler gap is another nice touch. Finally, the windscreen washer reservoir cap magically transforms into a funnel upon opening – meaning you’ll never have to waste another drop when refilling. The Kamiq really is a Simply Clever car.
