Within the segment of urban SUVs, the Skoda Kamiq is one of the most interesting models. However, the 2021 range has killed diesel, and the new alternative proposed by the brand is an updated three-cylinder engine. Does it convince you?
The Skoda Kamiq has a lot in common with the Seat Arona, although the Czech all-road is somewhat larger -the result of a higher wheelbase-, it has a different suspension setting and its interior conveys something more refinement, thanks to padded plastics. For all these reasons, it has become a rival to consider against the Citroën C3 Aircross, Fiat 500X, Ford Puma, Opel Mokka or Peugeot 2008.
As in the Seat Arona and Volkswagen T-Cross 2021, the new range of the Skoda Kamiq says goodbye to the 1.6 TDI diesel engine, and does not replace it with the 115 hp 2.0 TDI EVO, which we do find in the Volkswagen T- Roc 2021. Everything points out that the Czech brand has not wanted to complicate itself with the adaptation of a new diesel engine, whose demand is decreasing, and only leave the TSI and TGI petrol blocks of natural gas available to buyers.
Another important change in the Skoda Kamiq 2021 range is found in the 1.0 TSI three-cylinder gasoline mechanics. Now the 115 hp variant reduces its power to 110 hpHowever, it can be linked to the six-speed manual gearbox or the seven-speed DSG automatic alternative. With the first, it accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 10.2 seconds, reaches 194 km / h and declares an average consumption of 5.5 liters / 100 km; in both cases, it transmits a maximum torque of 200 Nm to the front axle.
The Skoda Kamiq 2021, with the 1.0 TSI Evo 110 hp engine, arrives in Spain with nothing less than six possible finishes: Active, Ambition, Style, Sport, Scout and Monte Carlo. The first includes six airbags, ESP with Hill Holder, air conditioning, lane keep assist, roof bars, Bluetooth, LED headlights with turn signal, speed limiter, SOS call, 16 “alloy wheels, radio with display 8 “touch screen and dual USB ports,” Jumbo Box “armrests, heated electric mirrors,” Front Assist “system, Smart Link -Android / Apple compatibility- and leather steering wheel. The termination Ambition adds silver roof bars, dual zone climate control, rear parking control, photosensitive interior mirror and chrome exterior line.
He finish Style incorporates keyless access, cruise control, tinted windows, fatigue detector, Full LED headlights, 17 “wheels, fog lights, front parking sensor and special upholstery. The Sport trim loses some elements such as the fatigue warning, the control frontal approach or full LED optics, although it is distinguished by the sports seats, 18 “wheels, driving mode selector and the panoramic roof.
If you prefer a country focus, Scout termination It equips body protections and a specific upholstery. For its part, the Monte Carlo level puts its emphasis on dynamism, as it includes a specific exterior and interior kit, LED ambient lights and aluminum pedals.
