    The fleet-focussed Skoda Scala SE Technology gets a couple of new powertrain options, which have slashed its starting price to £18,625

    Skoda has broadened its Scala hatchback lineup, adding a 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine to SE Technology trim. It drops the price of the car to £18,625.

    The 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol comes in two states of tune. The entry-level model has 94bhp and 175Nm of torque and is mated to a five-speed gearbox as standard, while the more potent option generates 108bhp and 200Nm of torque, but gets a six-speed manual gearbox.

    A 1.5-litre four-cylinder turbo is the most powerful option on the Scala SE Technology, producing 148bhp and 250Nm of torque. Buyers have their choice of either a six-speed manual gearbox or a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic – although the latter option will add an extra £1,300 to the car’s sticker-price.

    Prices for the more powerful engine start from £20,825. Coupled with a manual gearbox Skoda claims a 0–62mph time of 8.2 seconds and a top speed of 137mph. Fuel economy stands at 49.3mpg, while CO2 emissions of 130g/km are claimed.

    Equipment upgrades over an entry-level Scala SE include 16-inch alloy wheels, front and rear parking sensors, chrome window surrounds, LED tail lights and a traffic sign recognition system. Inside, there’s some silver trim for the dashboard and Skoda’s larger 9.2-inch Amundsen infotainment system, which offers support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

    Skoda is targeting the new Scala SE Technology at fleet customers, which is a highly competitive market segment that’s mostly driven by value. The Czech firm says this latest SE Technology variant adds around £2,100-worth of extras over the equivalent SE model, while only being £400 more expensive to buy.

    Always thought the Scala is a really useful piece of kit. Have not test-driven one but assume it goes as nicely as the Octavias and Superbs; comfy and satisfying to drive. If they would put in the 2.0L with just shy of 200bhp then it would be very good. With the excellent 4×4 as well it’s be even better.

    My thoughts too @Tharg regarding the engine.
