The new Skoda Kamiq Monte Carlo, unveiled at September’s Frankfurt Motor Show, is now on sale. The Monte Carlo model tops the Kamiq range and is a direct rival to the top-spec models of the Volkswagen T-Roc and Nissan Juke. Prices start at £23,080 and first deliveries are expected in the spring.
As part of the sporty design tweaks to set it apart from lesser models, the Kamiq Monte Carlo gets gloss black exterior detailing on the front grille, front bumper, wing mirror caps, roof rails and side skirts.
Front and rear LED lights are standard, as well as a panoramic roof and tinted windows. At the back, the Skoda lettering has been made black, along with a gloss black rear diffuser. The Monte Carlo also gets 18-inch alloy wheels as standard.
Inside, the Kamiq Monte Carlo gets red and black trimmed sports seats and a sports steering wheel. Red interior trim accents are dotted around the cabin along with matching red LED ambient lighting. Further additions include black roof lining, aluminium sports pedals and chrome trim on the dashboard and air vents.
The range-topper features a digital ‘Virtual Cockpit’ instrument binnacle and a 9.2-inch Amundsen infotainment system. The latter features gesture control and comes with a one year subscription to Care Connect, which includes remote access and a proactive service that helps in the event of an emergency.
The Kamiq Monte Carlo can only be specified with petrol engines. The entry-level choice is the 113bhp 1.0-litre, which is priced from £23,080 or £24,330 with the DSG automatic gearbox. The second option is a 148bhp 1.5-litre engine, with the manual priced from £24,480 and the DSG starting at £25,730.
The Kamiq is the latest Skoda to get the range-topping Monte Carlo treatment, following the announcement of the Skoda Scala Monte Carlo. The Kamiq range will also feature a tougher-looking Scoutline trim level in the near future. This should sit in the range above the S, SE and SEL trim levels but below the Monte Carlo model.
