Five engines and three chassis available

Three efficient TSI petrol engines and one diesel provide power outputs ranging from 70 KW (95 PS) to 110 kW (150 PS)
› An environmentally friendly 1.0 G-TEC running on CNG will follow in the fourth quarter of 2019
› Sport Chassis Control and Rough-Road package available in addition to the standard chassis

ŠKODA is offering the new SCALA with a choice of five modern turbocharged direct-injection engines, which all fulfil the strictest Euro 6d-TEMP emissions standard. Customers have a choice of three petrol engines with cylinder capacities of 1.0 or 1.5 l, a 1.6-litre diesel as well as a 1.0 G-TEC that is set to follow in the fourth quarter of 2019 and designed to run on eco-friendly natural gas (CNG). In addition to the standard chassis, ŠKODA is offering the SCALA with a Rough-Road package, which provides greater ground clearance, as well as with Sport Chassis Control, which allows the driver to switch between two chassis settings at the touch of a button.

All of the petrol engines are equipped with a petrol particulate filter. The 1.6 TDI is fitted with a diesel particulate filter.

1.0 G-TEC is the eco-friendliest option

In the fourth quarter of 2019, the particularly efficient and eco-friendly 1.0 G-TEC option will complete the ŠKODA SCALA’s range of engines. The latest version of this three-cylinder engine has a power output of 66 kW (90 PS), a maximum torque of 160 Nm and is designed to run on natural gas (CNG). This generates lower CO2 and NOx emissions compared to conventional fuels. The 1.0 G-TEC can, however, also run on petrol; power is transmitted via a manual 6-speed gearbox.



Christian Strube, ŠKODA Board Member for Technical Development, said, “Although our petrol and diesel engines already achieve excellent consumption figures, we have developed an even more eco-friendly drive unit. The particularly efficient 1.0 G-TEC runs on CNG and helps our customers to considerably reduce fuel costs even further.”

Sport Chassis Control with two chassis settings

Boasting a MacPherson front axle and a torsion-beam axle with trailing arms at the rear even in the standard version, the chassis of the new SCALA provides safe and balanced driving characteristics. In addition to the Rough-Road package, which offers 12 mm more ground clearance, different springs and shock absorbers as well as additional protection for the chassis and underbody, Sport Chassis Control is also available as an option for all cars fitted with the 15‑mm-lower sport chassis – regardless of engine variant.

Drivers can switch between both chassis settings of the Sport Chassis Control via the menu for Driving Mode Select. The chosen setting also affects the responsiveness of the electromechanical rack-and-pinion steering as well as of the engine and gearbox. The driver can choose between four driving modes: Normal, Sport, Eco and Individual.

Brake discs with a diameter of up to 276 mm

The SCALA features a high-performance braking system, the dimensions of which are adapted to the different engine variants. Depending on the engine output, the front wheels have brake discs with a single-piston floating calliper and a diameter of 256 or 276 mm. For the rear wheels, the brake discs have a diameter of 230 mm; here, models with three-cylinder engines have 9-inch drum brakes. The handbrake can be operated easily using a classic handbrake lever.
