the ŠKODA Storyboard.

With a new character, new technology and a new name, the ŠKODA SCALA completely redefines

the compact car segment for the Czech brand. The fitting name ‘SCALA’ comes from the Latin for

‘stairs’ or ‘ladder’. The hatchback combines an emotive design with a high level of functionality as

well as state-of-the-art connectivity, and transfers the sensational design language of the VISION

RS concept study into a production vehicle for the first time. A selection of five engine variants is

available, with power outputs ranging from 66 kW (90 PS) to 110 kW (150 PS). In addition, the

SCALA offers a high level of active and passive safety, full-LED headlights and tail lights, plenty of

space for luggage and passengers, as well as numerous Simply Clever features. It will be launched

on the market in the first half of 2019.
