A mid-life cycle of the Skoda Scala compact hatchback is working on Facelift, and our spy photographers have been caught testing a camouflage prototype in the Alps.
Facelifted Scala made its spy debut in September 2021, which means it is now in the final stages of development before its upcoming debut. The front and rear edges of the latest prototype have camouflage as the rest of the bodywork will remain unchanged.

The updated Scala has a slightly larger grille, and a new front bumper that has a cleaner design than its predecessor. The headlights will retain the angular shape but with the new াkoda Fabia can get even more fresh LED graphics. At the back, changes seem to be more limited, including slight changes to the rear bumper trim.
Interior design is one of the strongest points in the current scalp, so Skoda is not expected to change much in this area. The 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster could become standard in more trims, such as the larger 9.2-inch touchscreen for infotainment. The latter will probably benefit from a software update, introducing more connectivity features.
Skoda Scala has been with us since 2019 based on the expanded version of the MQB A0 platform. The latter is used on all VW Group Superman, (Skoda Fabia, VW Polo, and Seat Ibiza), as well as equivalent SUVs (Skoda Kamiq, VW T-Cross, Seat Arona). Unlike the models mentioned above, the Scala is located in the C-segment, in contrast to the VW Golf and Opel Astra, as it is 4,362 mm (171.7 inches) long and has a rather spacious cabin. Furthermore, for those looking for a more practical alternative, Scala’s cancellation fills the void created by Fabia Combi.
The Scala is currently available with 1.0 TSI three-cylinder petrol, 1.0 TGI which is CNG burning (Scala G-Tec), and flagship 1.5 TSI four-cylinder petrol. The engine range will probably be taken to Facelift with minor updates. Skoda has made it clear that it is not planning a hot hatch variant of the Scala, with Monte Carlo playing the role of a sporty looking trim. Last year, ডkoda partnered with ABT Sportsline to produce the Scala version S with 1.5 TSI to 187 hp (140 kW / 190 PS), but it only came with limited availability for the German market.
The updated compact hatchback is expected to debut as a 2023 model this year. Following Scala, াkoda can bring similar updates to mechanically-related comics.
