Skoda announces its new Scala prices

March 12, 2019

Skoda has announced the prices and final trim specifications for the all-new Scala hatchback which is set to arrive in the UK in the summer.

The Scala introduces a striking evolution of Skoda’s celebrated design language along with a host of all-new infotainment systems and a wealth of engineering and safety innovations.

Priced from just £16,595 the Scala is the first Skoda to be based on the Volkswagen Group’s advanced MQB A0 platform. In true Skodafashion, the new Scala is defined by its intelligent and practical interior design that delivers exceptional levels of passenger and load space.

Three engine options will be available to customers from launch (two petrol and one diesel) with power outputs ranging from 115PS to 150PS, while a 95PS petrol engine arrives later in the summer. The petrol range consists of two 1.0 TSI units with 95PS and 115PS and a 1.5 TSI engine with 150PS. The Scala’s diesel option is a 1.6 TDI unit that generates 115PS. All engines, with the exception of the 1.0 TSI 95PS unit are available with an optional seven-speed DSG transmission.

The range consists of three familiar trim grades; S, SE and SE L, with all three offering high levels of standard specification. Despite its status as the entry-level model, the S is fitted with 16-inch alloy wheels, LED headlamps, leather steering wheel, gear and handbrake lever and a height adjustable driver’s seat. Customers opting for this model also get air-conditioning, DAB digital radio, front and rear electric windows and Swing infotainment system with 6.5-inch screen. In terms of safety equipment, the S model, which joins the range later in the Summer, features front head and side airbags, Front assist, Lane assist, Speed limiter and Emergency call with proactive services.

The mid-range SE model is priced from £18,580 and adds the likes of cruise control, rear parking sensors, Bolero infotainment system with eight-inch touchscreen, integrated umbrella, and height adjustable passenger seat.

Priced from £20,380, the range-topping SE L adds even more equipment and delivers one of the most comprehensive specification lists in the sector. It includes Skoda’s new Amundsen infotainment system with 9.2-inch glass touchscreen, digital cockpit, climate control air conditioning, keyless entry with start/stop and a colour multifunction trip computer. The exterior design features 17-inch alloy wheels, full LED rear lights, dynamic indicators and privacy glass on the rear windows. Inside, the seats are finished with silver Microsuede trims and chrome details on the dashboard, door panelling, gear and handbrake lever.

The new Scala is positioned between the recently updated Fabia and Octavia models in Skoda’s new-look range. Thanks to its long wheelbase of 2,649 mm, the Scala offers sector-best levels of rear headroom. Its boot capacity of 467 litres (extendable to 1,410 litres with the rear seats folded) is also the most accommodating in the sector.

The new Scala will open for order in May, with first deliveries expected in the summer. Further information relating to performance and economy will be announced in due course.
