Inside, the Skoda Scala comes with an all-new cabin featuring new materials.

The global debut of the new Skoda Scala took place at Petah Tikva, a suburb in Tel Aviv, Israel in the presence of 400 guests while the event was live streamed on the internet to the world. The design is heavily influenced by the Vision RS Concept shown off earlier in the year, although Skoda has said that a performance-oriented vRS version of the Scala is unlikely to come. It has the name "Skoda" written across the tailgate instead of the logo. The setup is quite minimalistic but again uses varied surfacing to bring a more premium feel.

Four engines are expected to be offered in the United Kingdom - a 94bhp and 113bhp variant of the 1.0-litre TSI petrol engine, a 148bhp 1.5-litre petrol and a sole diesel option of a 113bhp 1.6-litre. The new hatchback will get a single diesel powertrain option, in the form of a 113bhp, 1.6-litre motor.

The lineup also includes a 1.6-liter TDI four-cylinder turbodiesel rated at 115 PS (113 hp) and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) of torque. It has a 5spd gearbox as standard while the 1.0TSi 115hp version will have either a 6spd manual or a 7spd DSG automatic.

The most recent event - which ran from mid-October to early November - saw transactions falling by 1 per cent, or US$300 million, compared with last autumn.

All engines will comply with Euro 6d-TEMP emission standards. Buyers can also opt for an optional sport chassis, which will reduce the ride height by 15mm. This allows the driver to switch between the two driving modes available - Normal and Sport. The petrols start with two tunes of the 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine, offering 94bhp matched to a five-speed transmission or 114bhp with a six-speed. Skodas are generally good to drive, and we expect no changes in that, but the Scala will also be offered with an optional Sport Chassis Control, which will make the vehicle more focussed.

In addition to all this, Skoda has also equipped the Scala will various driver assists and safety features including Multi-Collision Braking, blind-spot detecting Side Assist, adaptive cruise control, city emergency braking, etc.

The auto is front-wheel drive, and will come with a range of manual and quick-shifting DSG transmissions. The Scala is the first Škoda to offer dynamic rear indicators as an optional extra.
