    This is the all-new Skoda Scala. It’s clear to see that the Scala is designed to offer direct competition to popular family hatchbacks such as the Ford Focus and Volkswagen Golf. But given how populated the family hatchback sector is, along with the likes of the Focus and Golf already being so established, does the Scala have a chance of standing out from the crowd?

I still don't get why VW have Skoda and Seat Brands, but then I guess the public are easily fooled by manufacturer branding. Fact is Audi is pretty much VW and only the higher brands are sufficiently differentiated

It has more room and a bigger boot than a Golf because it's an estate. Brands need to stop passing these "kinda estates" as hatchbacks.

Well... MQB A0. Polo, Ibiza and Audi A1 are using the same platform. Every single one of them is a small car. We'll see about this Skoda really put that platform to its limit with 2649mm wheel base, the are compact hatchback numbers. 100mm more than a polo. I hope the pricing will be right and the extras not too expensive

This seems to be a Skoda Rapid v2 , or a forced move from Skoda manufacturer so they can rise the price of the Octavia artificially as this new Scala starts from 17k . Damn you VW Group . I will buy french cars ! They look nicer and it`s cheaper too , and with a lot less engine problems (see TSI and TDI enginer problems on the forums).

They have scraped parts bin from Skoda past. Interior lights are from Octavia series 1. Skoda are cheap just open door and look at door hinges straight from Fabia, lack of soundproofing also makes them noisier but they are cheaper then equivalent vw so if you pay cheap you get cheap.

Another superb Skoda but obsolete ICE only? VAG invested billions to design their car platforms to take a variety of drivetrains. Now VAG is developing separate BEV only platforms, but Skoda needs to complete with Hyundai/Kia which is introducing Hybrid PHEV and BEV versions.

The new Focus just looks so... off. It doesn't look bad, but it just doesn't have a Ford Focus look. It honestly looks more KIA than the actual KIA. The KIA actually looks like it could be Opel Astra 2020... The Skoda looks awesome, a little too close to an Audi A3 probably but it's nice. The Golf still looks best.

Nice to see a bias towards manual gearboxes for once, those engines all sound really underpowered though, would have been better to see an EV model and a VRS with a V6.

Why are Skodas so hunch backed all of them have a weird overly stretched rear end & rooflines, just looks like another oddish Skoda to me with hints of Audi and VW & Seat, the Focus looks the best but it will probably be the first to break, the Golf is conservative & boring, probably underspecced and Kia looks cheap but probably full of the latest pointless tech to keep its millennial customers excited slightly longer than the other three

I don't know what Skoda are doing anymore. First (well, lately) came Rapid and the new styling. Rapid may be the missing link between small ( Fabia) and estate (good old Octavia), but it didn't really have much distinctiveness. The styling that came around the same time is ... remove style, kind of. What are they trying to do with Scala? Is it instead of Rapid? Maybe not a bad idea, it wasn't that good as I already said. But the accentuation of this styling line (backlights are dreadful and these ones are completely failed) and the stealing (the back hayon is Volvo C40) show it as a completely disorientated brand.

Nice job Skoda. I like it. Not quite as nice as an Audi A3 Sportback but much cheaper and it's the same mechanically. Prefer it to the Gold and the Leon. The Focus looks better but on a PCP deal it's quite expensive so the Skoda has a lot going for it.

I think it's ugly like most new cars. The cabin for example. Why don't they use mat brushed aluminum instead of plastic chrome? And why don't they use mat dark grey metallic grey instead of shinny black plastic? Why don't they build the infotainment into the dashboard or just remove it ones and for all? How is it safe with a touch display in a car while you're driving? The moral seems to be: "Lets see if we can kill some more people by blinding them with shinny things in the cabin when the sun reflexes on it. If they're dead yet then we'll try to put as many things into a touch screen as possible so they have to look at it instead of the road"

+Sergiu-Lucian Petrică Actually VW does exactly the same with using plastic chrome and shiny black plastic. So I don't see much of a difference in this regard

They do that on purpose to differentiate it from VW, else it would carve into its sales like it did last generation. When you have a car similar to a Golf but at a lower price you can guess it's gonna sell more than the Golf.
