Skoda Kamiq - MPG, CO2 and running costs
The Skoda Kamiq lacks a cheap-to-run hybrid or electric option, unlike some rivals; depreciation and insurance are on a par with its competition
The Skoda Kamiq is gaining some revisions to its existing range of engines as part of some mid-life updates, but the official figures for these engines have yet to be announced.
We don’t expect any big changes in numbers, so you should expect 50mpg from the 1.0-litre engines and over 45mpg from the 1.5-litre. Likewise, anticipate about 125g/km of CO2 emissions from the 1.0-litre engines, and between 130g/km to 140g/km for the 1.5-litre, depending upon whether it has a manual or automatic gearbox.
The revised engines should compare well with petrol-engine rivals such as the Peugeot 2008, but there are hybrid alternatives, such as the Hyundai Kona and Toyota Yaris Cross, which offer significantly better fuel efficiency.
For company car drivers paying Benefit-in-Kind (BIK) company car tax, the Kamiq’s emissions should compare favourably with its main rivals. However, the electric-only range and ultra-low emissions of the Renault Captur E-Tech plug-in hybrid could save you a significant amount of money every month. Then there are the fully-electric alternatives like the Hyundai Kona Electric, Peugeot e-2008, and Vauxhall Mokka Electric to consider, which could all save you even more money.
The insurance group rankings for the refreshed Kamiq have yet to be announced, but we suspect there won’t be a huge change from what they are for the current car. That should mean it’ll cost a similar amount compared with the Ford Puma, Renault Captur, SEAT Arona, and Toyota Yaris Cross.

Our experts predict that the Kamiq will retain around 52% of its value after three years and 36,000 miles of ownership. That’s mostly in line with rivals, although the broadly similar Volkswagen T-Cross in 1.0 110 Move trim will hold onto 61% over the same period, so there’s a bit of a gulf to consider.
