Skoda announces prices for new Scala

Starting at £16,595, the Scala replaces the Rapid and sits between the Fabia and Octavia in Skoda's range.

Buyers will initially be given the choice of three engines, made up of two petrols and one diesel with power outputs ranging from 115 to 150PS. An entry-level 95PS petrol will follow later in the year.

All engines, with the exception of the 95PS unit, will be available with an optional seven-speed DSG transmission.

The range is made up of three trim levels: S, SE and SE L. Highlights of the £16,595 S model include 16-inch alloy wheels, a 6.5-inch infotainment system with DAB radio and a host of safety equipment include lane assist.

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

Topping the range, the £20,380 SE L adds a new 9.2-inch infotainment system, 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.

With its 2469mm wheelbase, Skoda claims the Scala offers class-leading rear headroom. Its 467-litre boot capacity (extendable to 1,410 litres with the rear seats folded) is also impressive - almost matching that of the Honda Civic.

Orders open in May with deliveries from summer 2019.

Skoda Scala Monte Carlo announced

The new Scala Monte Carlo features an exterior design package that includes full LED headlights and tail lights, sport front bumper, extended tailgate glass, panoramic roof and black trim around the radiator grille. It also features a distinctive black rear diffuser, rear spoiler and black lettering across the tailgate. Striking 18-inch black Vega alloy wheels complete the exterior design package.

The Scala Monte Carlo’s interior features an Amundsen infotainment system with 9.2-inch display, Virtual Cockpit, sports seats and a sports steering wheel. Monte Carlo owners also benefit from red ambient LED lighting, a black roof lining and leather pack with distinctive red stitching. Aluminium pedals, chrome surrounds on the air vents and door sills with Scala lettering completes the interior design package.

Scala Monte Carlo buyers can choose between two TSI petrol engines; a 1.0 TSI 115PS and 1.5 TSI 150PS, both of which can be specified with either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed DSG gearbox as an option. Positioned at the top of the range, Monte Carlo models are priced between £22,680 and £25,350 OTR. Order books for both models are open now with the first deliveries expected in Spring.
