2020 Skoda Scala Monte Carlo on sale now
Skoda Scala Monte Carlo will be sportiest-looking model in range
- • Scala Monte Carlo brings sporty style without increased running costs
- • Two petrol engines can be chose
- • Prices start at £22,680
Prices and specifications for the new Skoda Scala Monte Carlo have been revealed. First unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the new model sits near the top of the Scala range and injects the car with some sporty style. It’s on sale now for £22,680 and first customers are expected to get their cars in spring.
Skoda has made a number of exterior styling changes to give the Skoda Scala a more striking look. The Monte Carlo model gets a more aggressive front bumper design, a rear diffuser, a panoramic sunroof, an extended glass portion on the tailgate and a bigger rear spoiler. The grille surround, spoiler, diffuser, mirror caps and trim mouldings are all painted gloss black, and two-tone 18-inch alloy wheels are fitted. Despite the sporty style, the Monte Carlo is mechanically identical to all other Scala models.
Inside, buyers are treated to sports seats with integrated headrests and Monte Carlo-specific upholstery. Continuing the sporty theme are red accents and stitching, red LED ambient lighting, aluminium pedals and a black roof lining. The Scala Monte Carlo also comes with special floor mats, badged kickplates on the sills and a redesigned instrument cluster.
The Skoda Scala Monte Carlo edition comes with a choice of two petrol engines: a 113bhp 1.0-litre engine or a 148bhp 1.5-litre petrol with cylinder-on-demand technology. Neither the 1.6-litre diesel or the 94bhp petrol engine available for other Scala models are available for the Monte Carlo. The Monte Carlo will remain the sportiest version unless a reported Scala vRS performance version appears in the next couple of years.
Prices start at £22,680 for cars with the 1.0-litre engine, while the 1.5-litre petrol model starts at £24,080. Specifying Skoda’s seven-speed DSG automatic gearbox over the standard six-speed manual adds £1,270 to both engines.
The Skoda Kamiq has also got the Monte Carlo treatment, and you can read more about that here.
