› ŠKODA offers up to nine airbags and proactive occupant protection system Crew Protect Assist for the first time in the segment
› SCALA boasts numerous assistance systems from higher vehicle segments
› First vehicle in its segment to come with LED headlights and tail lights as standard
By offering a high-strength steel body, many passive safety features and a wealth of assistance systems previously only available in higher segments, ŠKODA has made the new SCALA one of the safest vehicles in the compact car segment. It is the first ŠKODA model range to always be equipped with Lane Assist and Front Assist, and the first model in the segment to boast LED technology as standard for the headlights and tail lights – and with the option of full LED versions.
Volkswagen Group’s MQB-A0 platform builds the foundation for making the SCALA one of the safest cars in the compact car segment, as it enables the latest assistance systems to be used. At the same time, a robust body gives the SCALA a high degree of torsional stiffness and great stability. ŠKODA uses hot-formed steels for this, almost 70 per cent of which are high-strength or hardened. These are used in the A- and B-pillars, the bulkhead and the tunnel, for example.
