Škoda Scala

Your guide to the Škoda Scala, named New Zealand’s ‘Top Small Car’ 2019 by Stuff NZ, What Car’s ‘Best Family Car for Value 2021,’ and ‘Best Family Car 2020’. A highly capable hatchback that offers so many practical features and so much space (1,410L with the seats folded down) that it starts to make station wagons nervous.

Why choose the Scala?

If you’re looking for a hatchback then you most likely want a smaller vehicle that is easy to drive around town but is comfortable on the highway, and something that’s roomy enough when you need it to be but has the low-down handling of a real driver’s car. You may even have a family with kids that you’d like to transport in the back seats, so even though it’s a hatchback it needs to have what it takes to be a family car.

With that in mind, a good place to start (and end!) could be a car that’s been named New Zealand’s Top Small Car, as well as ‘Best Family Car’ in overseas awards. That’s where the Škoda Scala comes in. Remarkable for its versatility and spaciousness, you’ll easily cope with anything the future has in store for you. On top of that, you’ll love the stylish design, state-of-the-art connectivity, and utmost safety.

Welcome to the Škoda Scala, winner of ‘Top Small Car 2019’ in the annual Stuff NZ awards, as well as What Car’s ‘Best Family Car for Value 2021’ and ‘Best Family Car 2020’.

  • ŠKODA SCALA Interior

What makes the Scala the ‘Best Family Car for Value’ 2021?

Best Family Car 2020 / Best Family Car for Value 2021 – What Car?

“The Scala’s looks might not grab your attention, but its low price tag certainly will. Compare it with a similarly equipped Ford Focus or Volkswagen Golf, for example, and the Scala will set you back thousands of pounds less.

But this car doesn’t just get an award here because it’s cheap; it’s also exceptionally roomy inside. There’s a huge boot – bigger than those of most rivals – and spacious seating for five. That makes it one of the most practical cars you can buy for the money.

All of this would be for nothing if the Scala were horrible to drive. Happily, that couldn’t be further from the truth. It rides bumps smoothly and comfortably, and while it isn’t quite as much fun to chuck around as the likes of the Focus, it still handles neatly and predictably.”
