With a £21,180 ($26,358/€23,880) MSRP, the Kamiq SE L adds rear LED lights with dynamic indicators and 18-inch alloy wheels. Customers will also benefit from black and silver microsuede upholstery inside, glossy black and silver inserts, 9.2-inch infotainment, satellite navigation, keyless entry & go and Blind Spot detection.
Pricing for the new Kamiq Monte Carlo will be announced at a later date, but choosing it will get you glossy black exterior detailing, special badging, 18-inch Vega anthracite alloy wheels, panoramic roof and red LED ambient lighting.
The engine lineup comprises of three petrol units, including the 95 PS (94 hp / 70 kW) and 115 PS (113 hp / 85 kW) 1.0-liter TSI, and 150 PS (148 hp / 110 kW) 1.5-liter TSI, with the latter two being available with a seven-speed DSG transmission.
