Featuring an emotive design, a high degree of functionality as well as state-of-the-art connectivity, the ŠKODA SCALA completely redefines the compact car segment for the Czech carmaker. In line with its new character and modern technology, the hatchback has been given a new name. ‘SCALA’ comes from the Latin for ‘stairs’ or ‘ladder’ and represents the step forward ŠKODA has taken with this car. The ŠKODA SCALA is the first production model to showcase the stunning design language of the ŠKODA VISION RS concept car. What’s more, it also comes with a high degree of active and passive safety, full-LED headlights and tail lights as well as plenty of space for passengers and their luggage. There is a choice of five engines with a power output ranging from 66 kW (90 PS) to 110 kW (150 PS). In addition, the SCALA offers numerous ŠKODA typical Simply Clever features. It will be launched onto the European market in the first half of 2019.
All information, photos and videos of the ŠKODA SCALA are available in the digital press kit at ŠKODA Storyboard.
The ŠKODA SCALA is an all-new compact car and sets benchmarks within its segment in terms of technology, safety, space and design. Boasting excellent connectivity, high-quality equipment and exquisite materials, it perfectly represents the brand’s values, which are suitably encapsulated by the term ‘smart understatement’. The SCALA thereby also appeals to the younger, design-focused online generation, who also attach importance to enjoying a generous amount of space (as is typical for a ŠKODA), the largest boot in its segment and great value for money.
