Škoda Scala: Enhanced look for brand's compact game changer

1. srpna 2023

Škoda has made the expressive design of its compact Scala even more distinctive. With a redesigned Škoda grille and revised aprons at the front and rear, the refreshed hatchback model is even more reminiscent of the spectacular Vision RS concept. Its dynamic appearance is reinforced by slimmed-down headlights, available for the first time with TOP LED Matrix technology and LED modules evoking blocks of ice. The characterful extended rear window made of black glass, which stretches down to the redesigned tail lights, remains available as an option.

The Scala was the first model to showcase the current iteration of Škoda’s design language. For the update of the model series, the Czech car manufacturer has drawn on the Scala’s distinctive features and refined them further. The tapering headlights are now slimmer and even more sophisticated, featuring expressive LED components in the TOP LED Matrix variant. The front and rear aprons for the Scala emphasise sportiness, resembling the dynamic Vision RS concept.

The updated Scala features a new Škoda grille. This comes with the traditional vertical slats and plays with the alternation of matt and glossy surfaces. The front bumper has also been redesigned: the central air intake is divided by side wings and flanked by more pronounced air curtains. These emphasise sportiness while also protecting the LED fog lights, which are standard from the SE L model upwards. The air intake grille has a mesh-style design and comes with diamond-shaped segments that create a three-dimensional look.

TOP LED Matrix headlights with crystalline LED modules as a special feature

The new base level headlights for the Scala are now entirely based on LED technology. TOP LED Matrix headlights are available as an option for the first time. They enable drivers to leave the high beam on permanently without dazzling other road users. Oncoming vehicles are detected by a camera and automatically excluded from the light cone. In the sporty Monte Carlo top model, the TOP LED Matrix headlights are included as standard. They have crystalline LED modules that look like little blocks of ice or precious stones. In addition, the night-time light signature has been split and redrawn. The LED tail lights also come in two versions. Compared to the basic version, the optional TOP variant has dynamic turn signals and a new, L-shaped light graphic that is standard in the Monte Carlo.

Rear apron with new diffuser

At the rear of the Scala, the optional extended rear window made of black glass stretches all the way to the tail lights, with a clearly contoured loading sill below. This combination encapsulates the model’s characteristic interplay of expressive styling and maximum practicality. The redesigned rear apron includes a diffuser framed by two wing elements painted in body colour, mirroring the design of the front apron. At its premiere, the Scala was the first Škoda model to bear Škoda lettering on its tailgate instead of the logo; the updated version now bears the lettering conforming to the new, modernised Škoda CI.

New alloy wheels and nine paint finishes

Scala wheels come in sizes from 16 to 18 inches. New to the range are the 17-inch Kajam alloy wheels in silver with black aero inserts, the silver 18-inch Fornax wheels and the Ursa silver alloy wheels, also measuring 18 inches, with black aero inserts. The updated Scala can be ordered with nine paint finishes, of which three are solid colours. In addition, the Scala is exclusively available in a solid Steel Grey colour finish.

Black accents for the Scala Monte Carlo

The sporty Scala Monte Carlo top model is traditionally characterised by numerous black accents. The frame of the Škoda grille, the exterior mirror caps, the side skirts and the lettering on the tailgate all come in glossy black. The front wings are adorned with Monte Carlo badges. Standard equipment for the Scala Monte Carlo includes a black panoramic roof, which merges seamlessly into the extended rear window. There are also TOP LED Matrix headlights, LED fog lights with cornering light function and black tinting on the rear side windows and the rear window (Sunset). The standard 17-inch Kajam wheels for the Monte Carlo are finished in brushed black, with black aero inserts, while the optional 18 inch Ursa wheels for this top variant come in brushed black and without aero inserts.
