ŠKODA Scala 110 TSI Monte Carlo 2021 Review

ŠKODA Scala.  ŠKODA is one of those brands that has been around for a while as part of the VW group, but suffers slightly from some perception confusion in Australia amongst consumers.

Scala Launch Edition.This however is unjustified as the models they have available are well known and received in Europe. The latest addition to the range launched in January this year is the Scala, a smaller wagon styled vehicle which goes slightly against the SUV revolution and is good to see.

Scala Launch Edition.

SCALA will be offered with the familiar and zippy 110TSI turbocharged petrol engine, driven through either a six-speed manual or seven- speed DSG transmission, across three range variants: 110TSI, Monte Carlo and – initially – the Launch Edition.

A 10.25 inch high definition virtual cockpit is standard across the range as is a tablet styled infotainment system touch screen. There are also quite a few clever interior design features such as interior ambient lighting.

Scala Launch Edition.

Priced from $26,990 drive away for the entry level through to $35,990 for the value packed launch edition that is limited in availability. It represents fantastic value for money in a quality European brand.

Rob Fraser – General dogsbody & Director Rob is the founder of the business. He constantly mutters something about way too many red wines one evening being to blame. Often known for taking the 4WD in the driveway over the sports car, he has travelled pretty much everywhere in Australia and when he is bored goes for a drive. He first learned to drive on the farm in a left hand drive WW11 Jeep when he was 11, and was hooked on 4WDriving way back then. In addition to 4WD he is an avid motoring enthusiast and has maintained a strong interest in the industry ever since his teens. He has owned way too many cars in his time as well. Having previously lived at the top of corporate life he retired in 2000 and hasn’t put a suit and tie on since. Cars are his passion so why not have a business doing what you love he figures. He has towed either a caravan or camper trailer to most parts of Australia, has run guided tours for camper trailers’ and instructed drivers in off road towing.
