New Fleet-Focused Model Added to Skoda Scala Range

Skoda has introduced a new SE Technology variant to its Scala range with high equipment levels to appeal to more business drivers and fleet customers.

Standard specification includes an Amundsen infotainment system with 9.2-inch touchscreen control and Care and Connect, SmartLink+ and Infotainment online (1 year).

Front and rear parking sensors and cruise control are also fitted as standard, along with rear LED lights with dynamic indicators.

In terms of design, the Scala SE Technology comes equipped with 16-inch Alaris alloy wheels, chrome window surround and Silver haptic decorative insert on the dashboard.

Based on the standard specification of the SE model, the SE Technology model is fitted with additional equipment with a value of £2,100, but is priced at just £400 more than the SE.

The Scala SE Technology is equipped with a 1.5 TSI petrol engine that develops 150PS. Skoda says it will add further engines to the trim later in the year.

Customers can choose between a six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed DSG, which is equipped with Stop/Start technology and Active Cylinder Technology (ACT). The system shuts down the two middle cylinders when engine load is low, thereby reducing fuel consumption. The driver is aware whether two or four cylinders are active by a related indicator in the multifunction display between the speedometer and tachometer.

Ordering for the new SE Technology opens from August 24, with the first deliveries expected in September. The 1.5 TSI 150PS model has a P11D value of £20,825 while the DSG version has a P11D value of £22,095.
