The stork has flown in to Australia with yet another new baby SUV.

Skoda Australia has confirmed the arrival, as well as pricing and specifications, for its new Kamiq city-sized SUV which is available in showrooms from February and slots into its burgeoning family of soft roaders underneath the mid-sized Karoq and seven-seat Kodiaq.

It bounces into an ever-growing nursery of high-riding hatchbacks, joining the likes of the popular Mazda CX-3 and more recent arrivals such as the Ford Puma, Hyundai Venue, Kia Stonic, Toyota Yaris Cross and the Volkswagen T-Cross.

As Skoda is a part of the Volkswagen Group empire, the Skoda Kamiq shares its fundamental underpinnings with the T-Cross.

The Skoda Kamiq will be offered in a choice of three model grades with a starting price of $27,990 drive-away for the entry-level 85TSI with a six-speed manual transmission, or $29,990 with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

It will be exclusively powered by an 85kW/200Nm variant of the 1.0-litre turbocharged three-cylinder engine that is said to consume an average of 5.0L/100km (or 5.1L/100km with the auto).

If you need a bit more, Skoda offers the choice of either the Monte Carlo or Limited Edition models – each with an identical $36,990 driveaway sticker price – that are powered by a 1.5-litre turbo four-cylinder petrol engine with 110kW/250Nm and fitted as standard with the seven-speed DSG automatic.

All variants come with a generous list of standard equipment, including 18-inch alloy wheels, keyless entry, dual-zone climate control, auto tailgate, Skoda’s Virtual Cockpit digital instrument cluster and an 8.0-inch infotainment display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring and wireless phone charging.

They also have the latest in advanced crash avoidance safety systems, such as adaptive cruise control, city emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, fatigue detection, reverse camera with parking sensors and rear brake assist on top of the protection provided by seven airbags throughout the cabin.

The Monte Carlo brings a sportier character with unique black VEGA alloy wheels and matching exterior highlights, LED headlights, figure-hugging front seats, a panoramic glass sunroof, selectable drive modes and revised suspension settings that has the car sitting 15mm lower than other variants.

The Limited Edition offers a taste of luxury with heated front and rear seats clothed in Leather and Suede trim and with electric adjustment for the driver, as well as its own CRATER design alloy wheels, body-coloured exterior highlights, LED headlamps, automated parking assistance and a larger 9.2-inch infotainment screen with voice-controlled satellite navigation and wireless Apple CarPlay. (Wireless Android Auto will be available later in 2021, according to Skoda Australia.)
