New Skoda Scala SE Technology trim targets fleet customers

The new fleet-focused Skoda Scala SE Technology trim level sits between the mid-range SE L model and flagship Monte Carlo

Skoda has launched a new trim-level for the Scala hatchback, called SE Technology. Like the firm’s Octavia SE Technology, it’s a better equipped version of the entry-level SE model, which features a range of cosmetic and technology upgrades at a more value-driven price.

The new Skoda Scala SE Technology sits between the mid-range SE L and range-topping Monte Carlo models in the hatchback’s line-up – and it’ll be available to order from the 24th August this year, with prices starting from £20,825.

Improvements over the Scala SE include a fresh set of 16-inch alloy wheels, chrome window surrounds, some silver trim for the dashboard and the Skoda’s larger 9.2-inch Amundsen infotainment system, which offers support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

It’s powered by the Volkswagen Group’s ubiquitous turbocharged 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine, which produces 148bhp and 250Nm of torque. Buyers have their choice of either a six-speed manual gearbox or a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic – although the latter option will add an extra £1,300 to the car’s sticker-price.

When specced with a manual gearbox, the powertrain offers a 0–62mph time of 8.2 seconds and a top speed of 137mph. Fuel economy stands at 49.3mpg, while CO2 emissions are a claimed 130g/km – meaning company car rates should be relatively affordable for those in the lowest tax band.

Skoda has targeted the new Scala SE Technology at fleet customers, which is a highly competitive market segment that’s mostly driven by value. As such, the Czech firm says this latest SE Technology variant adds around £2,100-worth of extras over the equivalent SE model, while only being £400 more expensive to buy.
