2022 Skoda Scala price and specs

The 2022 Skoda Scala has entered the 2022 model year largely unchanged, though a number of features are currently unavailable due to the semiconductor shortage.

These include safety features such as blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, usually standard on the 110TSI Monte Carlo and 110TSI Signature trims.

There’s also a Skoda premium sound system that’s currently unavailable on the 110TSI Monte Carlo’s optional Travel Pack.

As compensation for the removed feature(s), the Skoda Australia spokesperson confirmed that all affected cars will “include a credit for the adjusted specification”. They also indicated that a customer can wait for the restored specification.

At this stage, Skoda Australia is aiming to have the missing features return to the Scala by the 2023 model year change, which is around June 2022.

The Scala isn’t the only Skoda model currently missing features due to the ongoing global semiconductor shortage. It also spans the Skoda Kamiq, Octavia, Superb, and Kodiaq.

Shortly after launch, Skoda replaced the flagship 110TSI Launch Edition trim with the 110TSI Signature.

The 110TSI Signature has all the same standard features as the 110TSI Launch Edition but misses out on the unique 18-inch alloy wheels. Instead, the 110TSI Signature receives the 110TSI Ambition’s silver 18-inch alloy wheels.

Pricing for the 2022 Skoda Scala starts at $30,990 drive-away for the entry-level 110TSI Ambition manual and extends to $38,990 drive-away for the 110TSI Signature.

The Scala represents a strong push from Skoda into Volkswagen Golf, Toyota Corolla, Mazda 3 and Hyundai i30 territory.

Although it’s built on the same MQB A0 platform as the smaller Volkswagen Polo, the Scala is actually larger than a Golf or Corolla – and promises to pack more into its boot than its rivals.

In 2021 Skoda sold a total of 896 Scala models, which is less than the Toyota Corolla (28,768 sales), Hyundai i30 (25,575 sales), Mazda 3 (14,126 sales), and the Volkswagen Golf (1926 sales).
