Let us remind you that Škoda presented modernized versions of both cars at the beginning of August last year. And the Kamiq in particular has a lot to build on – since its premiere in 2019, the Czech carmaker has managed to produce more than 576,000 examples. In 2023, production exceeded 107,000 units, making Kamiq the brand’s best-selling SUV.
For Scala, the numbers are somewhat lower. As of 2019, over 260,000 cars have rolled off the production line, with more than 56,000 produced in 2023.
“Scala was the first Škoda model to be launched in our current design language. We have now taken both models to the next level and set new standards in the compact class – especially when it comes to assistance systems. I want to thank everyone involved for the exceptional cooperation. I am convinced that both modernized models will be well received by our customers,” declared Andreas Dick, member of the Škoda Auto board of directors for production and logistics.
Both models have been rejuvenated and received a slightly redesigned design. The front and rear bumpers, wheel rims and radiator grilles were modified, and the headlights also underwent changes. By the way, Matrix-LED lamps are also new in the offer.
Another change is the new Škoda logo on the fifth door. In addition, sustainable materials have been used in various parts of the cars, such as upholstery and floor mats.
Škoda also focused on assistance elements, their arsenal was expanded to include Front Assist with a pedestrian monitoring function and Lane Assist.
As part of the modernization, the Czech automaker also revised the structure of the equipment elements, one of the highlights being the new Phone Box with wireless charging and cooling or fast-charging USB ports. Customers now have a choice of six interior variants in the three trim levels Selection, Top Selection and Monte Carlo.
The modernized Scala and Kamiq models will be available from authorized Škoda Auto partners in the Czech Republic from February 2024.
