The Kamiq first went on sale in 2019, based on the same platform as the Volkswagen T-Cross. As part of its mid-life update, it gains a larger front grille with new front and rear aprons, plus larger air intakes and what Skoda describes as a “three-dimensional mesh” to emphasise its width.

Larger air curtains are incorporated within the rear lights, while a silver rear diffuser is added for bolstered underbody protection.

The Kamiq’s headlights, meanwhile, are slimmer and illuminated fully by LEDs as standard, while the Skoda name is spelled out on the rear of the car for the first time.

Like its hatchback counterpart, the Skoda Kamiq is offered with three specification levels.

In its basic spec, the Kamiq is fitted with 17-inch wheels and a 8.25in infotainment display. It also receives an 8.0in instrument display, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, rear parking sensors, LED headlights and dual-zone climate control.

Moving up a grade brings a selection of interior upgrades, such as ambient lighting, a bigger, 9.2in infotainment system, and a 10.25in digital cockpit. As for exterior changes, SE L cars are now fitted with 18in wheels, chrome exterior styling and privacy glass.

The range-topping Monte Carlo trim includes additional exterior design changes, including 18in black alloy wheels and a black theme for the door mirrors, front grille and badging.

Monte Carlo cars also come with a panoramic sunroof, a reversing camera, dynamic indicators, more powerful LED matrix headlights and sports chassis control.

Inside, the Kamiq gains additional sustainable materials throughout, with the rooflining and much of the model’s door trim made of natural plant fibres. Its wheel-arch linings and windscreen water reservoir are now both made of recycled plastics, while the upholstery, flooring and floor mats are from recycled fabric.
