That seems like a lot of comfortable family car for the money. Up front, it very much feels like a budget Volkswagen Group product. Refinement is also below par in a few areas, with with the Scala generating lots of wind and road noise on the motorway. The ride is exceptional, though. Dropping the rear seats is easy enough if you need more room, although they don't fold particularly flat.

All versions of the Scala make do with a torsion beam rear suspension arrangement, as the platform doesn't support more advanced multilink systems. Indeed, the boot's an impressive 467-litres, in a very useful shape for carrying stuff. The Scala need not handle like the best car in this class, but it must ride with a degree of panache that the Rapid never managed. Development lasted four years, the official premiere was held on December 6, 2018 in ,. Configurator was launched in January 2019, and sales officially began in April.

With more length between the front and rear wheels, there is plenty of space for passengers in the rear. Road noise is also something of an issue, with even the smallest 16-inch wheels creating high levels of road roar. Buyers who want more power can opt for the four-cylinder 1. If Skoda has achieved all of this while retaining its core attributes, that new factory may not need to double its capacity, but triple it. The lighting is a sleek and classy affair, too. Overall, the Scala makes a good go of being a practical and well-equipped family car.

Skoda Scala Review (2020)

Skoda scala 1

There are plenty of soft-touch plastics and it feels well made. Its large screen looks impressive before you even turn it on, but the modern-looking graphics and useful features are the best bits. Naturally, there's more pulling power from the larger 1. Sharp creases abound, as does the dark exterior surfacing that has become increasingly fashionable among the European brands. Complementing the petrol engine is the seven-speed automatic transmission.

And can its ride and handling stand the test of time over months of daily use? Will its petrol engine and auto gearbox continue to return good economy? Skoda is offering deposit contributions on the Scala, too, so if you put in £2,700, this 1. Exceptionally spacious, in fact, not least because this is a long wheelbase for the class — 10cm longer. A ride out to Kings Lynn from the Suffolk border to see The Lion King is exactly the sort of journey a family hatch like the Scala should excel at. The mid-level Ambition model should be the most popular version. Permitted trailer load without brakes 660 kg 1455.

The Scala's 73mm of knee room in the rear seats is identical to that of the Octavia. It goes about its business with little fuss, helped by light steering and decent engines, but there's little in the way of pizzazz. There are no steering wheel paddles, but a bump of the shifter to the left allows you shift gears manually. Our top-spec Scala also features a slick 9. The way the black roof slopes down to end atop the number plate is neat.
