ŠKODA is excited to announce another two siblings in the compact family with the Scala, and Vision RS, respectively.
The latin noun scala meaning stairway or ladder, is fitting as the Scala will see ŠKODA scale new heights with the family sized hatchbacks.
Features previously reserved for cars of higher segments, along with class beating aerodynamics, and the hyrbid power outputs of the Vision RS will make the next release of compact models set the new industry standard.

ŠKODA's signature dynamic shoulder line forms the distinctive side view.
On the new Scala, "ŠKODA" is written out in block lettering on the tailgate.
Take a peak inside and you’ll soon notice the spaciousness, precise design lines and crystalline elements typical of ŠKODA larger wagons. Yet close the door to easily manouvre city streets to the open road.

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, all previously preserved for superior models.
The newly redesigned ŠKODA dash is now customisable, bringing infotainment features such as GPS navigation to the full screen in front of you.
The interior finish represents a significant step over the Rapid Spaceback, with soft-touch materials in key areas and a smart metallic finish across the centre of the facia. There’s ambient lighting in red or white, contrast stitching on the seats and the option of suede microfibre upholstery. Heated front seats will be available, too, along with a heated windscreen and steering wheel. Comfort is king.
With the space of its superior the ŠKODA Superb, but the overall size similar to its predeccessor the Rapid Spaceback, the new Scala will be class leading in comfort for all passengers, not just the driver. Equally all passengers will be able to enjoy the all-digital instrument cluster and a 9.2-inch touchscreen on the center console.
The ŠKODA Visioncombines ŠKODAs long sporting tradition with a sustainable future.
The striking concept study – with its dynamic design language and efficient plug-in hybrid drive – will provide the first insights into the next evolutionary stage of ŠKODA’s sporty RS models and the design of a future compact vehicle.
ŠKODA also demonstrates a high level of environmental awareness with the use of sustainably produced Vegan materials. The ŠKODA Vision plug-in hybrid drive combines the 1.5-liter TSI with an output of 110 kW (150 hp) and an electric motor providing 75 kW (102 hp). They unite to deliver a system output of 180 kW (245 hp), which accelerates the concept study from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.1 seconds
In total, the compact athlete emits only 33g of CO2 per kilometre. On battery power alone, the model can cover distances of up to 70km, ensuring zero-emission local driving. The lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 13 kWh can be charged by cable in 2.5 hours at a charging station. Alternatively, the ŠKODA VISION RS can be plugged into any household socket or charged while driving through energy recovery.
