Skoda Kamiq SUV - Reliability & safety

A five-star Euro NCAP safety rating will reassure Skoda Kamiq owners

Reliability & safety Rating

4.5 out of 5

Since 2008, every Skoda tested by Euro NCAP has scored a full five-star safety rating. The test has got much stricter since then but the Kamiq still managed to repeat the brand's success, with high scores in every category.

It’s far too early to comment on the Kamiq’s reliability but we expect it to be very easy to live with. All parts of the Skoda Kamiq have been proven in many other VW Group cars, so we’ve got no doubts that it’ll cause owners few problems.

Skoda Kamiq reliability

Skoda, backed by the VW Group, is enjoying glowing customer feedback at the moment because their cars are solid and reliable. As a brand, Skoda finished fifth out of 30 in the manufacturer list of our 2020 Driver Power owner satisfaction survey. Just over 17% of owners reported a fault in the first year of ownership.


Seeing as the Kamiq is so heavily based on the Scala, it’s no surprise it has received the same five-star Euro NCAP rating. Its range of standard safety features includes automatic city braking and driver aids that stop you from drifting out of lane. There is plenty more safety tech available on the options list - like rear cross-traffic alert and blind-spot monitoring.
