We test the new Skoda Scala and Kamiq. Ask what interests you

--

Two smaller Škodas arrived in the summer of 2023 with a rejuvenated face and better technology. We will test what they are like on the roads in Germany and try to answer the questions you write to us in the comments.

The rejuvenated Skoda Scala and Kamiq have been around for quite a few months now, but we haven’t seen them on the roads yet. The production started only a few days ago and the cars will be properly shown to journalists on Tuesday, February 6.

We’ll be attending this show, which is an opportunity for you, the reader, to ask what you’re interested in. In addition to the standard first impressions that you can look forward to in a few days, we will try to answer as many questions as we can write in the comments below this article by Monday at 6 p.m.

What’s new on scale and kamiq? From the outside, it is a new front, on which for the first time you can order headlights with LED Matrix technology. In the interior, the cars will offer new materials from sustainable sources. The automaker made some plastics and trims from recycled plastics, while materials using hemp and kenaf fibers (a type of hibiscus) appear in the cabin. For example, rugs are made from recycled fabric.

Under the hood is a liter three-cylinder TSI with 70 or 85 kilowatts, or a four-cylinder fifteen-cylinder with 110 kW, which manages to disconnect two cylinders at low load. Power transmission to the wheels of the front axle is handled by a manual six-speed or seven-speed dual clutch.

The Scala will offer a chassis for bad roads, raised by one and a half centimeters, or adaptive shock absorbers with the option of choosing stiffness, which, on the other hand, is associated with a 15 mm reduction in ground clearance. In kamiq, this option lowers the chassis by a centimeter.

Both models will also offer three trim levels: Selection, Top Selection and Monte Carlo, which complement the four interior variants. In addition, optional equipment packages are available in several categories and several individual optional equipment items. But the basic 8″ virtual cockpit or the 8.25″ basic infotainment Media will please.

Even basic infotainment offers a DAB tuner, Bluetooth hands-free calling, a pair of USB-C connectors with a power of 15 W or four speakers. The higher Top Selection equipment brings four USB-C connectors, wireless charging or support for the wireless connection of Starlink mobile phones. Music fans can choose the optional Škoda Sound System complete with a subwoofer in the spare space.
