The ŠKODA KAMIQ comes with a choice of five different engines offering power outputs that range from 66 kW (90 PS) to 110 kW (150 PS). Customers can choose between three petrol versions, one diesel or – as a first in ŠKODA’s SUV family – a 1.0 G-TEC. This efficient and low emission engine, which will follow in the fourth quarter of 2019, runs on compressed natural gas (CNG). The chassis with an increased ground clearance was developed specifically for the new city SUV; Sport Chassis Control is available as an option.
Christian Strube, ŠKODA AUTO Board Member for Technical Development, said, “Although the ŠKODA KAMIQ’s petrol and diesel engines already demonstrate excellent consumption, we still opted to offer the even more eco-friendly 1.0 G-TEC. We are therefore producing the first ŠKODA SUV to run on efficient CNG.”

The portfolio of engines available for the ŠKODA KAMIQ comprises five modern and efficient versions with direct injection and turbocharging. They all come with brake energy recovery as well as Stop/Start technology and comply with the current Euro 6d-TEMP emissions standard. The new city SUV’s top‑end engine is the four-cylinder 1.5 TSI with a power output of 110 kW (150 PS). Its Active Cylinder Technology (ACT) automatically shuts down two cylinders when the load is light, thus saving on fuel. Just like both of the three-cylinder 1.0 TSIs, the 1.5 TSI is fitted with a petrol particulate filter. The CNG variant of the three-cylinder 1.0 G-TEC delivering 66 kW (90 PS) is the first engine in a ŠKODA SUV to run on natural gas. When running on CNG, the engine generates lower CO2 and NOx emissions compared to conventional fuels. In terms of diesels, customers are offered the four-cylinder 1.6 TDI, which delivers 85 kW (115 PS) and is fitted with an SCR catalytic converter with AdBlue injection as well as a diesel particulate filter. As standard, all engines come with a 6-speed manual gearbox (5-speed for the 1.0 TSI outputting 70 kW / 95 PS). A 7-speed DSG is available as an option for all versions with power outputs of 85 kW (115 PS) or more.
