2022 Skoda Kamiq 85TSI returns to Australian range

Skoda’s three-pot small SUV is back.

The company has confirmed the Kamiq range will once again open locally with a turbocharged three-cylinder 85TSI variant, now wearing the 85TSI Style name.

Available to order now, the Kamiq 85TSI Style is priced at $37,990 drive-away and replaces the 110TSI Ambition manual as the entry point to the range.

Both the 110TSI Ambition manual and its dual-clutch automatic counterpart have now been axed locally. That also means all Kamiq models are now available exclusively with a dual-clutch transmission.

The surviving 110TSI Monte Carlo and 110TSI Signature have received a $1000 price increase, making them $41,990 and $42,990 drive-away, respectively.

The Kamiq 85TSI Style is powered by a 1.0-litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine producing 85kW of power and 200Nm of torque. This is mated exclusively to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission with drive sent to the front wheels only.

Kamiq 110TSI variants are also front-wheel drive and use a seven-speed dual-clutch, but are powered by a 1.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine producing 110kW and 250Nm.

Skoda claims the Kamiq 85TSI Style has a combined fuel economy figure of 5.4L/100km, whereas the Kamiq 110TSI variants have a claimed combined fuel economy figure of 5.6L/100km.

Standard safety equipment across the 2022 Skoda Kamiq range includes the following:

A panoramic glass sunroof is available as a standalone option on the 85TSI Style and 110TSI Signature for $1300.

Like the wider Skoda range, the Kamiq is covered by the Czech brand’s five-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty.

There are three-, five- and seven-year service packs available for all models, costing $800, $1500, and $2100, respectively.

Early in 2021, Skoda withdrew the three-cylinder 85TSI, announcing it had sold out of the model. It was replaced by the now-defunct 110TSI Ambition.

“Overwhelming international sales and production restrictions mean there is little likelihood of re-supply before the end of 2021,” said a Skoda Australia spokesperson in March 2021.

The launch of the full Kamiq range was initially stalled by a stop-sale, which caused the launch of the 110TSI variants to be delayed until February 2021.

Taking on everything from the Mazda CX-3 and Volkswagen T-Cross to the Mitsubishi ASX and Kia Seltos, the Kamiq rides on the Volkswagen Group’s MQB A0 platform which is used in the T-Cross, Skoda Scala, Volkswagen Polo and Audi A1.
