Only 2.5 years have passed since the start of European sales of the Skoda Scala hatchback, and the model has already begun to prepare for lifting. One of the prototypes of such a car was seen on road tests in the Czech Republic.
Judging by the spy shots, the updated Skoda Scala will receive the usual “set” of design changes for the middle of the model’s life cycle: a modified headlight graphics, a slightly different front bumper configuration, and, possibly, an emblem on the radiator grille (now it is attached next to the front edge of the bonnet). It is possible that the designers of the Czech brand will also work a little with the taillights, although it is still impossible to draw any conclusions from the photographs.
Scala and in its current configuration has a fairly modern front panel, optional digital dashboard and media system with a diagonal touchscreen up to 9.2 inches. The upcoming model update could bring new combinations of interior materials and an expanded list of Simply Clever accessories like the new Fabia.
No major changes are expected in the powertrain lineup. In Europe, “Skala” is likely to retain petrol “three” 1.0 TSI (115 hp), “four” 1.5 TSI (150 hp) and a 1.0 TGI engine adapted for methane. In Ukraine, this model today intersects with cars for other markets only with a 150-horsepower engine, and the base engine for Scala is a 1.6 MPI (110 hp) engine.
The official premiere of the updated Skoda Scala hatch should take place next year.
