Skoda Scala Edition S: Our Prayers have been Answered, but with a Trick


When Skoda introduced the Scala, we were pleasantly surprised. With this model they got fully into the compact segment, although the maneuver had a trick. Yes, because its bones are the same as those of its cousins Seat Ibiza or Volkswagen Polo. Therefore, he was repeating the same maneuver that he carried out with the reviled Rapid and his brother Spaceback. However, there was a big difference from its predecessors: its quality and endowment.

The second surprise came from the hand of its mechanical range. We all expected that they would launch a version of sports tint and the RS surname. However, nothing beyond reality since when we saw the range, it was obvious that it would settle for a maximum of 150 hp. But there is always room for hope as the German Skoda division has decided to go one step further. They have created the Skoda Scala Edition S. We present it to you …

The appearance of the Skoda Scala Edition S changes to be more radical. The basic design lines do not vary excessively but it does receive accessories that make its imprint more aggressive. Starting from the sporty Monte Carlo finish, we can recognize a more muscular bumper, decorative inserts finished in piano black or 18-inch alloy wheels signed by ABT.

And this is the key name in the development of the Skoda Scala Edition S. Yes, because the German division of the brand has counted on the collaboration of this preparer to shape this version. The turbo 1.5 TSI tetracilíndrica mechanics delivers 190 CV of power and 290 Nm of maximum torque. Its driving dynamics are expected to be more reactive, although it should be tested yet.
