Exterior: Even more distinctive design and Matrix technology premiere for both models

› Revamped bumpers and new Škoda grille further enhance visual appearance
› Redesigned headlights, now also available with LED Matrix technology, and integrated LED front fog lights
› New wheels, nine colours and debut of optional virtual pedal for the tailgate

Mladá Boleslav, 5 February 2024 – Škoda Auto has sharpened the design of its two compact models Scala and Kamiq by introducing styling modifications to the front and rear. The most significant change comes in the form of the redesigned headlights, which are now also available with LED Matrix technology.

Redesigned front and rear aprons and increased use of sustainable materials

Škoda’s refresh emphasises the defining characteristics of the Scala and Kamiq and makes an immediate impression. The Scala hatchback, inspired by the dynamic Vision RS concept car, was the first Škoda to bring the current design language to the compact class. Now, it has an even sportier appearance. The model’s new front apron provides distinctive new side wings, which divide the central air intake. The Air Curtains are more prominent. The Scala’s rear apron features two wing elements painted in body colour. They frame the diffuser and echo the front design. With the Kamiq, the designers have focused on a more rugged SUV presence. A sturdy silver diffuser with three openings serves as a striking underbody guard. Part of the large black diffuser is now finished in silver. Both vehicles feature brand lettering in line with the new Škoda CI on the tailgate and the rear fog lights are integrated into each model’s rear apron. Extended use of recycled polypropylene and polyester as well as wood flour and kenaf used in places like the wheel arches, the water channel under the windscreen and the roof panelling further increase the share of sustainable materials.

Octagonal Škoda grille and debut of optional LED Matrix beam headlights

The redesigned Škoda grille is now octagonal and slightly more upright in the Kamiq than before. The distinctive double slats characteristic of Škoda’s compact SUV models converge in a U-shape at the bottom. The basic headlights of both models utilise LED technology throughout. Both models now offer optional LED Matrix beam headlights for the first time, enabling drivers to keep the high beam on continuously without dazzling oncoming traffic. Cars heading in the opposite direction are detected by a camera that automatically excludes them from the cone of light. The high beam's intensity has been enhanced by 50% for the Scala and 40% for the Kamiq. On the Scala, the headlights are slimmer than before, with crystalline LED modules. The daytime running lights are now divided into two thin LED strips, creating a new light signature. The Kamiq’s characteristic split headlights have new proportions. The upper element is now slimmer and uses four sharply designed LED modules to generate the daytime running lights as well as animated indicators at the front – a feature unique to this Škoda model. The lower headlight cluster, on the other hand, has become larger. It features striking, hexagonal matrix modules with additional spot lights below for an improved high beam function. New LED front fog lights are now embedded in the Scala’s and Kamiq’s Air Curtains. In the redesigned LED rear lights, the optional top version features animated indicators and new L-shaped light graphics.

Premiere for the virtual pedal and new alloy wheels

For the first time, the optional electric tailgate on the Scala and Kamiq also includes the virtual pedal. This allows the tailgate to be opened easily and conveniently using a foot movement underneath the rear apron. The 17-inch Kajam alloy wheel and the 18-inch Fornax and Ursa wheels are new additions to the 16-to-18-inch wheel range. There is a choice of six metallic paint finishes and three solid colours for the Scala, including Steel Grey, which is exclusive to the hatchback among these two models. For the Kamiq, there are two solid colours and seven metallic paint finishes. The Phoenix Orange metallic colour is exclusive to the city SUV model. The Kamiq is also available with the Colour Concept finish, which has the roof, A-pillars and exterior mirrors painted in black.
