2019 Skoda Scala – Interior, Exterior and Drive. Škoda has completely redefined its compact car segment with the Scala. As the name suggests the brand is aiming high with the new Škoda Scala: the word ‘Scala’ comes from Latin and means ‘stairs’, ‘ladder’ or ‘scale’. By incorporating new technology, an emotive design, a high degree of functionality and state-of-the-art connectivity, the new Škoda Scala is taking more than just one development step at a time – and is also setting new benchmarks in the compact segment. The Scala is available with a selection of five engine variants featuring power outputs from 66 kW (90 PS) to 110 kW (150 PS), a high level of active and passive safety.
The Scala’s headlights are narrow and tapered and, together with the striking upright radiator grille, the large air inlet positioned beneath it and the side Air Curtains, shape the compact model’s front. Featuring a sporty, elegant design, the Škoda Scala is packed with emotive appeal and, in addition to the KAMIQ, is the first Škoda production model in Europe bearing the Škoda lettering on its tailgate instead of the brand’s logo. The block lettering particularly comes into its own on the extended rear window that is included in the Emotion and Image packages. Full LED headlights and tail lights as well as dynamic rear indicators add to the car’s striking appearance, as do the aerodynamically optimised alloy wheels measuring up to 18 inches and the twelve available body colours.
The Scala’s new interior concept combines ergonomics and emotiveness with plenty of space, a plethora of storage compartments and the largest boot in the segment (467 l), which increases to 1,410 l with the split back seats folded down (60:40), and offers numerous Simply Clever features. A wheelbase of 2,649 mm allows for a generous 73 mm of kneeroom in the rear and the 982 mm of rear headroom sets benchmarks in the segment. On the redesigned dashboard, a character line echoes the lines of the bonnet and flows around the free-standing screen measuring up to 9.2 inches, which is positioned high up and in clear view of the driver.
At the same time, the character line forms an ergonomic rest for the hand operating the touchscreen. The front door trims come with a high-quality, soft surface. Warm colours, individual decorative trims, ambient lighting and coloured contrasting stitching on the seats (now available with exquisite Suedia microfibre covers as an option) create a pleasant atmosphere. As options, the heated windscreen and heated steering wheel provide additional comfort.
MQB platform and body
The new Scala is the first Škoda based on Volkswagen Group’s modern modular MQB-A0 platform. The Scala is 4,362 mm long, 1,793 mm wide and has a height of 1,471 mm. In addition to a generous amount of space, the Škoda Scala also possesses great aerodynamics with a drag coefficient (cd) from 0.29. This has been achieved thanks to the streamlined bodywork which has been developed using advanced numerical simulations and a virtual wind tunnel. All of the Škoda Scala’s body components have been aerodynamically optimised. Most notably, these include the roof spoiler with finlets, optimised air-guiding parts for engine cooling, Air Curtains, aerodynamically optimised alloy wheels and underbody covers, as well as smaller details, such as the defined separation edges on the tail lights and water channels on the windscreen.
Engines and chassis
The optional Sport Chassis Control makes its debut at Škoda in the new Scala; the sporty chassis is 15 mm lower than the standard version and can be set to Normal or Sport using Driving Mode Select. Three TSI petrol engines with cylinder capacities of 1.0 or 1.5 l and a 1.6-litre TDI offer power outputs from 70 to 110 kW (95 to 150 PS); a 1.0 G-TEC producing 66 kW (90 PS) is set to follow in the fourth quarter of 2019 and is designed to run on environmentally friendly natural gas (CNG). They all fulfil the Euro 6d-TEMP emissions standard and can be coupled with a manual gearbox (5- or 6-speed) or a 7-speed DSG. All of the petrol engines are equipped with a petrol particulate filter. The 1.6 TDI is fitted with a diesel particulate filter.
