Cheaper Skoda Kamiq ‘Run-Out’ launches, priced from $32,990 driveaway in Australia

The Czech brand has lowered the cost of entry for its Kamiq small SUV, with a a value-focused new ‘Run-Out’ grade

Czech automaker Skoda has decreased the entry cost of its Kamiq small SUV by some $5000 with the launch of a brand new value-focused variant of its Kamiq small SUV.

Sharing its powertrain with the previous entry-grade Kamiq ‘Style’, the new Kamiq ‘Run-Out’ will act as the new entry-point variant in the current three-grade Kamiq line-up which competes with the likes of the Toyota Corolla Cross and Mazda CX-30 small SUVs.

Skoda has teased the more affordable model since last month, however while cheaper than the current $37,990 starting price it still falls short of what was once a $30,990 driveaway entry point at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The Run-Out is the new entry-point into the Skoda Kamiq model range

On sale from now until a newly facelifted Kamiq arrives in the second quarter of next year, the limited edition model will bolster the range of what is Skoda’s current highest-selling vehicle.

What features does the Skoda Kamiq Run Out include?

Skoda has confirmed features for the new grade, including: 

  • LED headlights and tail-lights
  • LED rear fog lights
  • LED interior ambient lighting
  • Dusk-sensing headlights
  • Rain sensing wipers
  • Auto-dimming rearview mirror
  • Full keyless entry and start
  • Electrically folding door mirrors
  • Driver’s auto dimming mirror
  • Leather-appointed steering wheel
  • 8.0-inch infotainment screen with Apple Carplay and Android auto
  • 4 x USB-C ports
  • 8 x speakers
  • Driver’s door umbrella and holder
  • A-pillar ticket holder
  • B-pillar clothes hooks
  • Luggage compartment shopping hooks
  • Windscreen washer reservoir with integrated funnel
The Kamiq Run-Out is on sale from now until the second quarter of 2024

Safety features include:

  • Seven airbags
  • Rear-view camera
  • Rear parking sensors
  • Tyre pressure monitoring system
  • Front Assist with pedestrian detection
  • Lane Assist 
  • Side Assist with Rear Traffic Alert.

Unlike the higher-spec Style which runs on 18-inch alloy wheels, the Run-Out receives 17-inch alloys wheels. As well as larger wheels, stepping up to the higher grade Style grade also sees the addition of other features including:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Adaptive Lane Guidance
  • Alarm system
  • Silver roof rails (black in Kamiq Run-Out)
  • Power tailgate
  • 10.25in Virtual Cockpit
  • Wireless smartphone mirroring/charging
  • Rear privacy glass

The Kamiq ‘Run-Out’ will come with a suite of standard features

The only optional extras available on the Run-Out are $550 for certain paint colours and a $2,650 seven-year / 105,000 service pack, which equates to $379 per service.

Like the rest of the Kamiq lineup, the Run-Out is covered by Skoda’s seven-year unlimited-kilometre warranty and seven-year capped price servicing offer.

What powers the new Kamiq ‘Run-Out’?

Like the higher-spec Style variant, the Run-Out also operates under the ‘85TSI’ grade umbrella, powered by a 1.0-litre turbocharged inline-three cylinder petrol engine producing 85kW or power and 200Nm of torque.

The engine is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with power sent to the front wheels.

Skoda claims a fuel efficiency figure of 5.6L/100km.
