New sculptural shapes, dynamic design features as well as precision-designed details lend the SCALA a distinct identity. The new compact car is ŠKODA’s first production vehicle in Europe to bear ŠKODA lettering across its tailgate instead of the brand’s well-known logo.
ŠKODA Head of Design, Oliver Stefani, said, “The SCALA is an important step in the further development of the ŠKODA design language. Not only is it a car that is practical and within reach for everybody – as you’ve come to expect from our cars – but it’s also visually extremely powerful, sporty and very emotive.”
With its perfect proportions, clearly defined surfaces, flowing lines and advanced aerodynamics, the new ŠKODA SCALA comes across as modern and sporty. The front is striking with an upright radiator grille, a large air inlet underneath and side Air Curtains. The ŠKODA-specific tornado line makes the vehicle look longer and is in perfect harmony with the car’s dynamic roofline. The aerodynamically optimised roof spoiler and the sporty diffuser underneath the bumper shape the wide rear.
Extended rear window bears ‘ŠKODA’ lettering
As an alternative to the standard tailgate, the car can be ordered with an extended rear window. In this case, the ‘ŠKODA’ lettering is featured on the window itself. In addition to the extended rear window, the Emotion package comes with a large panoramic glass roof including an electrically retractable sunblind as well as full-LED headlights and tail lights.
LED technology provides visual highlights
Innovative LED headlights and tail lights also shape the ŠKODA SCALA’s appearance and showcase the brand-typical crystalline features, which are emphasized by the ŠKODA Crystal Lighting lettering. The headlights are narrow and tapered; the razor-sharp designed tail lights with rear fog light shine in the brand-typical ‘C’ shape. The SCALA is the first ŠKODA to offer dynamic rear indicators as an optional extra. The indicators are divided into individual LEDs. When the driver turns the indicators on, they flash outwards in a sweeping motion. The dynamic indicators are easily noticeable by road users, even in bad weather – an important contribution to improved road traffic safety.
Aerodynamically optimised alloys of up to 18 inches
The range of wheels available for the ŠKODA SCALA starts with 15- and 16-inch steel wheels. Furthermore, there are numerous alloys ranging between 16 and 18 inches to choose from. The 16 inch Hoedus, 17-inch Propus and 18-inch Vega Aero wheels are new to the line-up. All three come in gloss black and have been aerodynamically optimised to make the car more streamlined.
