New Skoda is called Scala

15 October 2018 - Following on from the first silhouette images, Skoda reveals the name of its new model: Scala. The name derives from the Latin word 'scala' which means 'stairs' and is a step forward for the Czech car manufacturer in the compact hatch segment. The Scala is the first Skoda production model in Europe to carry the Skoda name in lettering across the centre of the tailgate and replaces the Skoda logo.

Bernhard Maier, chairman of the board of Skoda AUTO, emphasises: "With the new Skoda Scala we are proposing a new chapter in the compact class of Skoda. It is a completely new development that sets standards in terms of technology, safety and design in this class. Thus we are confident that Scala has the best chance to redefine the A-segment for Skoda."

With Scala, Skoda presents its new exterior and interior design language for the first time in series production form. It already made a stir at the Paris Motor Show in the shape of VISION RS. With the new model the Czech brand also makes a leap forward in technology and offers features so far found only in the higher class segment; thus the name Scala fits. With the new model, Skoda is also taking several steps forward in development, aptly embodying the 'smart understatement' value for which the brand is known for.

In addition, the new Skoda Scala features another, new and unmistakable feature: the compact segment car is the first European production series model for the brand to adorn the Skoda lettering, engraved in single letters across the centre of the tailgate and replaces the Skoda logo.
