Skoda launches new Scala here
The car replaces the Rapid and is available only in hatchback format.
Power is from petrol engines ranging from 115hp to 150hp and a 115hp diesel. A 95hp petrol will be offered later.
Two grades are offered initially with an entry level version coming by the end of this year.
A full suite of safety and connectivity technologies are available, the latter including provision for a built-in SIM card. USB-c sockets ensure the Scala is 'future proofed' for connecting and charging electronic devices.
Head of marketing for Skoda Ireland Ray Leddy says the car is aimed at a 'younger and more affluent' group of customers of the brand, which has recently entered the top five for registrations in Ireland.
