Skoda Skala with a lot of space and content tells Slovenians that it is necessary to count a lot from now on. But the new is no longer a cheap price book.
Damage, therefore, is more serious than ever in the "golf" class, where competition is exceptional, and competitors often separate only shades, even those from the price list. Scala is a brand new name, but the brand is not a novice among middle class hamburgers.
Rapidly recalls Rapida's (sportbacka) damage: he was already here, he had already tried it, but the fanfare was not accompanied by retirement, although the price was attractive in terms of size of the car and also as a sedan. looks too bold? And too little content? But an old platform that prevents more than average driving …
Larger, more spacious, more advanced
Scala is actually a brand new car. The first proof is platform MQB, which has long been a constant feature of VW Group's latest vehicles, now it has finally gotten its breadth. This is a derivative of A0, which is also known as the ibiza seat. The Škoda platform is rearranged so that the total (4.362 mm) and the wheelbase (2.649 mm) are much larger. The Scala is almost 10 centimeters longer than VW Golf, and after the wheel base even Octavia's first generation of damage compared to the rock is a real inch.
Scale is far above average! And because we are talking about harm, the scale is also big inside. Maybe this is the least obvious in the first two places at the first contact, but stay in the second row and shake it! So much foot space in this class is really an exception. Season everything together 467 liters of large rack – Let's recall that a few years ago there were 400 liters of this class of magical limit, and 467 liters were not even disturbed 10 years ago by any caravan. The luggage compartment can be equipped with a double bottom, the more cautiously they want spare tires – in this case the volume will be slightly torn. The usability of the scale can be upgraded with an additional option folding the passenger's backrest for transporting longer objects. The folded backrest does not leave a flat bottom in the back.
- An unusually large vehicle outside for your segment;
- a big leap forward with a variety of utilities and utilities;
- very spacious car on the back bench;
- a deep boot in which several chests of apples can easily disappear;
- typical for the brand ergonomics, which is particularly good news, but there are many noticeable components that we first saw for the first time in other brands for the first time a few years ago;
- some solid plastic around the driver, which provides durability but less comfort;
- car for a predictable and safe driving style between two points.
If the size of the interior space is a good upgrade to an already useful leap, there is a difference between the car's light years and the advanced aids. Of course it's in the scaffold standard emergency braking system, It also helps keep the tape. For the first time, it is possible for the Škoda brand to install a blind spot control system called Side assist for the first time. These are powerful side "eyes" that can spot other vehicles up to 70 meters laterally and, in addition, prevent collisions with other backward traffic.
You can also think in rocks radar cruise control, automatic parking, electric rear door opening (but not hands free!), full and adaptive LED headlamps and full LEDs with sequential signs … The front and rear lights have a very important role in the scaffolding when they do not glow, because thanks to them, the car has moved away from the boring "eternal" image of the predecessor. That nobody will replace them for those who decorate the style.
Three facilities and two packages
The basic equipment is three: active, ambitious and stylish. Active, this is a more "working car" with manual air conditioning, front power windows, main LEDs on the front and rear, 6.5-inch screen on the radio … It's ambition to add some other important features, among other wheels, air conditioning, cruise control and bluetooth.
Style style enhances comfort with full LEDs and adjustable headlamps, rear parking sensors, better sound, 8-inch display and 2x USB-C connection …
Customers can scale up with two packages called image (focus on external "black" accessories) and emotions. You will find, among other things, that such a glass on the luggage door has a personal extension at the rear. There are many options in the list of extras, while the scalable options are also an active 10.25-inch driver screen that replaces classic meters.
For engines, the scale is pragmatic. The core of motorization is 1.0-liter TSI engine in a version s 70 kW (95 hp) and five – speed gearboxes 85 kilowatts (115 KM). The latter is expected to be the most popular choice but can also be used with the seven-speed DSG gearbox. The top of the service is 1.5-liter engine p 110 kW (150 hp) and roller shutter technology. RS and Scala? It will not be worth … Diesel colors will be protected 1.6-liter TDI engine with 85 kW (115 hp).
Start at 15,046 euros
And still priced. Scale is more expensive than retired faster than one inch or more, which again turns out to be a completely different and better equipped car. Prices start at just over 15,000 euros, The golden environment (ambition 1.0 TSI 85 kW) costs 17,385 euros on the price list. Diesel with ambition started just over 20,000.
The petitioner does not even worry that the scales will not come into circulation and intend to sell them up to 500 this year and the next full year will be 800. The number will continue to be the most dependent on factory quotas as Skoda is currently struggling with a large lack of available production capacities, which can also lead to longer waiting times for individual versions.
