Introducing the new Škoda Scala and Kamiq

Three trim levels and updated Design Selections

The Scala now has even more sporting appeal courtesy of a refreshed exterior design featuring new front and rear aprons. The Kamiq now radiates even more SUV presence, with visual details such as a silver diffuser with three openings. Furthermore, both models come with a redesigned grille and – for the first time – optional LED Matrix beam headlights. At the rear, the optional electric tailgate on the Scala and Kamiq now also includes the virtual pedal. Various Simply Clever details are also new. With the standard 8-inch Digital Display and 8 inch infotainment display, the instrument panel in the two compact models is now fully digital. Four USB C ports with 45 watts of charging power and a Phone Box with an output of 15 watts for wireless charging and cooling are available as an option. As part of the update, Škoda is also introducing a new range structure with the three trim levels SE, SE L and Monte Carlo and updated Design Selections for the interior. Moreover, materials such as recycled fabrics, hemp and kenaf are used for the upholstery and door panels.



More powerful and more efficient engines

​Two new 1.0 TSI three-cylinder engines from the EA211 engine family’s evo2 generation are now even more efficient, thanks to further hardware and software improvements. Among other optimisations, these include variable control of the intake and exhaust valves and variable-geometry turbochargers (VGT) as well as ten-hole injectors for an even more homogeneous air-fuel mixture. The 1.5 TSI comes with an optimised ACT+ active cylinder deactivation system. The three engines deliver outputs ranging from 70 kW (95 hp) to 110 kW (150 hp).

Comprehensive equipment for enhanced active and passive safety

The Škoda Scala and Kamiq are among the safest vehicles in their respective segments thanks to extremely torsion-resistant bodies and numerous assistance systems from higher vehicle segments that come as standard on both models. These include, for example, the camera-based assistance systems Front Assist with Pedestrian Monitor, Lane Assist and Traffic Sign Recognition. The upgraded version of both compact models now also boasts Easy Light Assist, automatically switching the low beam on and off. From the SE trim level upwards, the features on board also include Cruise Control with Speed Limiter, the Tyre Pressure Monitoring system (TPM+) and LED front fog lights.

Octagonal Škoda grille and debut of optional LED Matrix beam headlights

The redesigned Škoda grille is now octagonal and slightly more upright in the Kamiq than before. The distinctive double slats characteristic of Škoda’s compact SUV models converge in a U-shape at the bottom. The basic headlights of both models utilise LED technology throughout. Both models now offer optional LED Matrix beam headlights for the first time, enabling drivers to keep the high beam on continuously without dazzling oncoming traffic. Cars heading in the opposite direction are detected by a camera that automatically excludes them from the cone of light. The high beam's intensity has been enhanced by 50% for the Scala and 40% for the Kamiq. On the Scala, the headlights are slimmer than before, with crystalline LED modules. The daytime running lights are now divided into two thin LED strips, creating a new light signature. The Kamiq’s characteristic split headlights have new proportions. The upper element is now slimmer and uses four sharply designed LED modules to generate the daytime running lights as well as animated indicators at the front – a feature unique to this Škoda model. The lower headlight cluster, on the other hand, has become larger. It features striking, hexagonal matrix modules with additional spot lights below for an improved high beam function. New LED front fog lights are now embedded in the Scala’s and Kamiq’s Air Curtains. In the redesigned LED rear lights, the optional top version features animated indicators and new L-shaped light graphics.

New Simply Clever features for the compact models

​In addition to renowned Simply Clever classics such as the ice scraper with tyre tread depth gauge in the fuel filler flap – now made from recycled plastic – other Simply Clever features have found their way into the upgraded Scala and Kamiq. The virtual pedal for the electric tailgate is available for these model series for the first time. In another first, smartphone pockets on the front seat backs add to rear passengers’ convenience, just like a box that attaches to the centre tunnel and is just as easy to remove again. Passengers can store small items in this box, which also includes a flexible cup holder. A tablet holder is now also available for the sport seats.

Sustainable materials for upholstery, carpeting and floor mats

With the updated Design Selections, both models will also receive new upholstery and decorative trims using recycled fabrics for upholstery, carpeting and floor mats. Natural, renewable raw materials are also used – the door panels as well as the structural reinforcement of the headliner, for example, are partly made of hemp and kenaf fibres. The decorative trim on the steering wheels now has a Unique Dark Chrome finish.

Scala and Kamiq Monte Carlo: Dynamic style with sleek black accents

The Monte Carlo versions of the Scala and Kamiq feature numerous distinctive black details identifying them as the most dynamic representatives of the model series. On top of that, Monte Carlo badges adorn the front wings on both models. The Škoda grille surround, exterior mirror covers and side skirts as well as details on the front apron, the rear diffuser and all letterings are finished in gloss black. Both models feature the black panoramic roof as standard, which merges seamlessly into the extended rear window on the Scala. The Kamiq also comes with black roof rails. LED Matrix beam headlights, complete with animated turn indicators in the Kamiq, LED rear lights with animated turn indicators and LED front fog lights with corner function are standard. The rear side windows and rear window are tinted (Sunset). The new 17-inch Kajam wheels included as standard on the Monte Carlo models have a black diamond cut finish and feature black aero inserts. The new 18-inch Ursa wheel design optionally comes in a Monte Carlo version with the black diamond cut finish. The Monte Carlo trim level can be combined with any powertrain available for the respective model.

Monte Carlo Design Selection with sporty black interior

​In the interior, the Monte Carlo-specific Design Selection predominantly uses sporty black for the headliner, the roof pillars and the sports seats. The latter feature integrated headrests and grey contrast stitching. A carbon look distinguishes the inner side of the seat bolsters as well as the door panels, the armrests in the doors and the decorative pad on the dashboard. Red trim strips on the doors, the instrument panel and the air vents provide dynamic accents. The multifunction sports steering wheel, which features the Monte Carlo badge, is heated and wrapped in leather with black stitching. The gear knob and handbrake lever are also covered in leather. LED ambient lighting that can be set to white or red comes as standard. The interior is rounded off with stainless steel-look pedals and a Monte Carlo-specific infotainment welcome screen.
