Three trim levels and six Design Selections

The Scala now has even more sporting appeal courtesy of a refreshed exterior design featuring new front and rear aprons. The Kamiq now radiates even more SUV presence, with visual details such as a silver diffuser with three openings. Furthermore, both models come with a redesigned grille and – for the first time – optional LED Matrix beam headlights. At the rear, the optional electric tailgate on the Scala and Kamiq now also includes the virtual pedal. Various Simply Clever details are also new. With the standard 8-inch Digital Display and 8 inch infotainment display, the instrument panel in the two compact models is now fully digital. Four USB C ports with 45 watts of charging power and a Phone Box with an output of 15 watts for wireless charging and cooling are available as an option. As part of the update, Škoda is also introducing a new range structure with the three trim levels Essence, Selection and Monte Carlo and six Design Selections for the interior. Moreover, materials such as recycled fabrics, hemp and kenaf are used for the upholstery and door panels.

More powerful and more efficient engines

Two new 1.0 TSI three-cylinder engines from the EA211 engine family’s evo2 generation are now even more efficient, thanks to further hardware and software improvements. Among other optimisations, these include variable control of the intake and exhaust valves and variable-geometry turbochargers (VGT) as well as ten-hole injectors for an even more homogeneous air-fuel mixture. The 1.5 TSI comes with an optimised ACT+ active cylinder deactivation system. The three engines deliver outputs ranging from 70 kW (95 hp) to 110 kW (150 hp).

Comprehensive equipment for enhanced active and passive safety

The Škoda Scala and Kamiq are among the safest vehicles in their respective segments thanks to extremely torsion-resistant bodies and numerous assistance systems from higher vehicle segments that come as standard on both models. These include, for example, the camera-based assistance systems Front Assist with Pedestrian Monitor, Lane Assist and Traffic Sign Recognition. The upgraded version of both compact models now also boasts Easy Light Assist, automatically switching the low beam on and off. From the Selection trim level upwards, the features on board also include Cruise Control with Speed Limiter, the Tyre Pressure Monitoring system (TPM+) and LED front fog lights.
