Australian pricing and specs for the 2022 Skoda Kamiq have been announced ahead of the car’s imminent arrival into dealerships. Thanks to global production restraints, the entry-level 85TSI 1.0L turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine is not available for the time being – the more powerful 110TSI 1.5L turbo petrol engine is the sole engine choice for now. Prices have risen $1,000, while the former top-spec Launch Edition is now called the Signature and it’s a permanent part of the range.

Pricing for the 2022 Skoda Kamiq range now starts at $32,990 drive away for the entry-level 110TSI Ambition. Aside from the larger engine, standard features are unchanged. This means that kit such as 18-inch alloy wheels, LED lighting (including scrolling rear indicators), auto lights and wipers, dual-zone climate control, keyless entry and start, an electric tailgate, an alarm, heated and auto-folding mirrors, an 8.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, wireless phone charging, four USB-C ports, a digital driver’s display, an eight-speaker sound system, rear air vents, roof rails, rear privacy glass and an auto-dimming rear view mirror.

Safety kit includes seven airbags, auto emergency braking (AEB) with pedestrian monitoring, lane assist, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go functionality (for autos), a reversing camera, rear parking sensors with automatic braking, driver attention monitoring and tyre pressure monitoring.

Step up to the sporty-themed Kamiq Monte Carlo ($37,990 drive away) and you’re rewarded with black exterior styling, sports seats with red and black cloth trim, a panoramic glass roof, sports pedals, LED headlights with scrolling indicators, front fog and cornering lights and adaptive sports suspension.

The $4,300 Travel Pack for the Monte Carlo adds blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, heated front and rear seats, auto parking with front and rear parking sensors, a heated steering wheel with paddle shifters and a larger 9.2-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, inbuilt satellite navigation and a more powerful sound system.

The top-of-the-tree 2022 Skoda Kamiq is the Signature, which replaces the former Launch Edition. In addition to the Monte Carlo with the Travel Pack, the Signature adds half leather/suede upholstery with a 10-way electrically adjustable driver’s seat.

Individual options include metallic paint (from $550 to $1,100), a $1,300 panoramic roof is available for the Ambition and Signature (it’s standard on the Monte Carlo) and a $2,000 electric-releasing tow bar.

If you’re wanting kit such as blind-spot monitoring or auto parking for the entry-level Kamiq, that’s unfortunately no longer an option – the 2021 Kamiq offered two feature-packed option packs for even the entry-level car.
