Skoda Scala hatchback unveiled: Here are all the details!

09 December 2018

The Scala is the first Skoda model to get dynamic rear turn indicators (optional), and it works by flashing outwards in a sweeping motion. The manufacturer says it's the next major development stage for Skoda's design language, taking inspiration from its vision RS concept. Wheel sizes will range from comfort-orientated 15-inch steels and grow to the sporty, low profile 18-inch alloys.

The Skoda Scala hatchback comes with an all-new cabin, which has microfibre fabric for the seats and soft foam surfaces for the dashboard. There will be more storage too, with the Scala's square roofline and 467 litre boot being a significant upgrade on the 375 litres found in the back of the Focus.

The Scala is based on MQB A0 platform and it is the first product to be based on this new VW platform. Being a Skoda, it comes with nifty features like the ice scraper, brolly holder, optional electric tailgate, and even bag hooks in the boot that prevents bags from falling. That's due to a long 2,649mm wheelbase while the vehicle itself is 4,362mm in length, 1,793mm wide and 1,471mm tall. There's an optional all-digital instrument cluster measuring 10.25 inches and a 9.2-inch touchscreen for the next-gen infotainment with support for over-the-air updates and always online functionality. The 1.0-litre petrol engine will come with two states-of-tune producing 99bhp and 115bhp; the 1.5-litre petrol produces 150bhp and the lone 1.6-litre diesel unit churns out 115bhp. Three trim levels will be available in the United Kingdom market with features like a panoramic sunroof, an eight-speaker sound system, Wi-Fi hotspot, 3D satellite navigation, wireless smartphone charging, 64GB of internal SSD storage, and downloadable apps for the infotainment system. A selection of five engine variants is available, with power outputs ranging from 66 kW (90 PS) to 110 kW (150 PS).

Daughter of 'Baby, It's Cold Outside' Songwriter Says He'd Be Horrified Over
Loesser said she was upset about the furore because "it's a song my father wrote for him and my mother to sing at parties". A flirty and seasonal classic, or an out-dated song that's problematic? "But baby, it's cold outside ".

Globally, the Skoda Scala hatchback will be made available with multiple engine options - two 1.0-litre, three-cylinder petrol units generating 99hp/ 115hp and 150hp, a 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol and a 115hp, 1.6-litre diesel. A more powerful 1.5-litre, four-cylinder petrol motor with 148bhp will round off the petrol line-up. All other engines get a six-speed manual or a seven-speed twin-clutch automatic.

VW-Skoda future cars for India will be based on the MQB-AO-IN platform and Skoda has already announced that they will bring at least 2 new cars every year in India from 2020. It is an all-new model that sets benchmarks within its segment in terms of technology, safety and design.

Among the standard offer of safety features we encounter the likes of adaptive cruise control, park assist, lane assist and front assist with city emergency brake.
