Škoda Scala Edition S unveiled with more power

Škoda Deutschland in collaboration with ABT Sportsline unveiled a special edition of the Škoda Scala with added performance, visual and suspension tweaks that can easily classify it as a warm hatch.

The Škoda Scala Edition S is fitted with the turbocharged four-cylinder 1.5 TSI engine that produces 190 PS (140 kW) of power and 290 Nm of torque thanks to software calibration by ABT. This means that it gets +40 PS and +40 Nm more compared to the top of the range version. Škoda didn’t announce the performance specifications which are expected to be slightly better than the 1.5 TSI DSG which accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 8,2″ and has a top speed of 219 km/h. The Edition S also gets a sporty suspension setting with lowered springs by 15 mm and performance tires for improved handling.

The Scala Edition S is based on the Scala Monte Carlo but it can be distinguished by the redesigned aero package which includes body-coloured bumper extensions, integrated splitter, larger roof spoiler, and a new diffuser with quadruple exhaust pipes. All that combined with full-LED lights, tinted windows, black mirror caps, black roof, side sills, and matching 18-inch ER-C18 wheels sourced from ABT. The Edition S is only available in three shades –  Velvet Red Premium Metallic, Black Magic Pearl Effect, and Steel Gray

Inside we find sport seats upholstered in black fabric, multi-function leather-wrapped steering wheels, 8-inch touch screen for the infotainment, stainless steel pedals and carbon-style trim on the dashboard and doors.

Initially, the Škoda Scala Edition S is limited to 500 unis exclusively available in Germany with a price of €33.790.
