Firm ride,
seven-speed automatic hesitant at low speeds,
driver-assistance features not standard.

The Skoda Kamiq is an excellent small SUV with a spacious cabin and plenty of high-tech features that’s dead easy to drive and impressively comfortable.

Pros
Comfortable to drive
Very roomy back seats
Plenty of standard equipment

Cons
Alternatives have bigger boots…
…And are more exciting to drive
Desirable infotainment costs extra

Another worthy crossover. Comfy, roomy, but not especially interesting.

Pros
Vast space,
very comfortable if you avoid the needless ‘
sports’ chassis

Cons
It’s just so derivative,
in a way the old Skoda Yeti wasn't

By: 
topgear.com

The Skoda Kamiq is everything good about Skoda wrapped up in a desirable small SUV package.

Pros
Spacious
Huge boot
Plenty of tech

Cons
Lacks individuality
Not as desirable as a Volkswagen
Powerful petrol engine not yet available
