The new Skoda Scala, Skoda’s replacement for the forgettable Rapid, is now officially on sale in the UK with prices starting from £16,595.
But Skoda has decided to bring that on sale date for the UK forward, so if you’ve been hankering after a Scala you’re in luck – the Scala is now officially on sale in the UK.
The headline starting point for the new Scala is £16,595, although Skoda are keen to point out you can have 1.0TSI 115PS Scala SE for £299 a month (plus a £2,766.77 deposit), and that you can also pay an extra £159 up front and get the first two services sorted.
The Scala comes in a choice of three trim levels and three engine options with standard equipment across the range including LED headlights, alloys and Air Con.
The entry-level Scala S (from £16,595)gets 16″ alloys, DAB, electric windows, Swing Infotainment with 6.5″ screen, Front Assist, Lane Assist and Speed Limiter. The Scala S won’t be available until later in the year.
The Scala SE (from £18,585), which is available straight away, adds in Cruise, rear parking sensors, Bolero Infotainment with 8″ screen, integrated umbrella (it’s a Skoda) and a height adjustable passenger seat.
The range-topping Scala SE L (from £20,385) gets Skoda’s posh Amundsen Infotainment with 9.2″ glass touchscreen, Virtual Cockpit, Climate, Keyless, 17″ alloys, LED tail lights, dynamic indicators, privacy glass and Microsuede trim.
Options for trhe Scala include a panoramic glas roof (£925), electrically operated boot (£400), sports chassis (£495) and a range of alloy wheel choices up to 18″.
Engine options initially are a pair of petrol engines and a single diesel, with a 1.0 litre TSI with 113bhp, a 1.5 litre with 148bhp and a 1.6 litre TDI with 114bhp. A 94bhp of the 1.0 litre TSI will arrive later in the year.
All a lot more appealing than the old Rapid.
