ŠKODA has revealed the name of its new compact hatch: SCALA — the Latin word for ‘stairs’.
The SCALA will be the first ŠKODA production model in Europe to carry the brand’s name in lettering across the centre of the tailgate, replacing the traditional logo.
Bernhard Maier, chairman of the board of ŠKODA AUTO, said: "With the new SCALA we are proposing a new chapter in the compact class of ŠKODA. 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 ŠKODA."
Based on the VISION RS concept model, which made a stir at the Paris Motor Show, the SCALA offers innovative features currently only offered in higher class segments so it’s a step up in more than just name.
