The Kamiq Run-Out retains most features from the Style variant but at a $5,000 lower price. It includes a comprehensive feature list and Škoda's European-best ownership package, which comprises a seven-year, unlimited kilometre warranty and a seven-year capped price servicing offer.

This new model includes several features often found in mid-to-high specifications of competitor brands. These features encompass LED lighting, keyless entry and start, an 8" Bolero infotainment system with smartphone integration, and various 'Simply Clever' features like a driver's door umbrella holder and luggage compartment shopping hooks.

Safety is a key focus, with the Kamiq Run-Out offering seven airbags, a rear-view camera, parking sensors, a tyre pressure monitoring system, and various driver assistance systems including Front assist with pedestrian detection, Lane assist and more. It will also come equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels.

Comparatively, the Style variant adds features like Adaptive Cruise Control, an alarm system, different roof rails, a power tailgate, a larger Virtual Cockpit, and more, including optional extras like a panoramic glass roof. Both models are powered by an 85TSI 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine, paired with a 7-speed Direct Shift Gearbox, boasting a fuel efficiency of 5.6 litres per 100 kilometres.

Kieran Merrigan, Škoda Australia’s head of marketing and product, emphasized the Kamiq Run-Out’s value, feature-rich offering, and ownership benefits. He highlighted Škoda's focus on customer preferences for more efficient and feature-rich vehicles, in contrast to competitors' offerings.

The Kamiq Run-Out is available until Q2 2024, with optional extras including special paint colours and a comprehensive service pack. Merrigan also hinted at Škoda's future plans to expand model grades while maintaining brand consistency.
