  • The Skoda Scala is due on sale in 2019

The new hatchback of a Golf class Scala Skoda has finally officially debuted.

As reported, the Scala replaces the slow-selling Rapid Spaceback that launched in Australia in mid-2014, about two years after it went on sale globally.

The Scala is based on MQB A0 platform and it is the first product to be based on this new VW platform. This platform also underpins the VW T-Cross, new-gen VW Polo and the Virtus sedan. Scala was the first model of the Czech brand, for which a software upgrade or, for example, new maps Navigator will be automatically downloaded through the cloud service. The Scala also comes with a black roof and roof spoiler.

The design is better than the Rapid, clearly infused with Skoda DNA, but still very understated. However, the Scala previews Skoda's new design language that is said to be more emotional and also showcases a more upmarket cabin. The compact model certainly has a few things in common with the Vision RS concept, but it's obviously not as exciting, though we're keeping our fingers crossed a potential Scala RS hot hatch will add more spice. Design highlights include optional all-glass rear window instead of a traditional tailgate, and Skoda name at the rear instead of the logo. This has been done in order to help distinguish the brand in markets where it is less well known, such as China.

Standard features include LED head- and tail-lights, and an interior full of soft-touch materials.

The boot is available with up to three nets, four fastening points, storage compartments and bag hooks on both sides, a built-in light, top tether hooks, a barrier net, a double-sided floor liner, a 12V charging socket, and storage spaces for a first aid kit and emergency triangle. The indicators are divided into individual LEDs. Depending on the variant, the Scala will get wheels measuring between 15 - 18 inches in diameter.

At Skoda Scala one of the largest trunk among the hatchbacks of the C-class: its volume 467 liters in the normal state and 1410 litres with the folded rear seats.

Transmission options include 5-speed and 6-speed manual gearboxes along with a 7-speed DSG box. Buyers can also opt for an optional sport chassis, which will reduce the ride height by 15mm.
