2019 Skoda Scala is claimed to be the largest vehicle in its league

Skoda Scala India

Hatchback C-class comes to replace the Skoda Rapid and will cease to be budget. The new Skoda Scala will compete with the VW Golf and the Ford Focus upon launch.

Volkswagen Group Australia general manager of corporate communications Paul Pottinger told GoAuto that deliveries of the new Scala will kick off in about a year, with the order books open from quarter three next year. What does that have to do with the Skoda Scala? "We're convinced that the Scala has the best chance of redefining the A segment for Skoda". The model is nearly 2 meters wide (1,988mm with mirrors), has a 2,649mm wheelbase and measures 4,362mm from bumper to bumper. The diesel engine will be a 1.6 TDI with 115 PS and 250 Nm. Skoda also claims that the Scala's 467-litre boot is the biggest in its segment.

The preview images suggest the Scala will be more upmarket than the budget-focused Rapid, with more soft-touch materials in the cabin and the choice of decorative trims for the dashboard and centre console.

Engine line-up for the United Kingdom is yet to be confirmed but the global range includes three 1.0-litre or 1.5-litre TSI engines and a 1.6-litre TDI with power from 94 to 148bhp.

The exact price of the auto is yet to be unveiled, but experts predict it to be around United States dollars 15,000, slightly above that of the current Rapid Spaceback. It has a 5spd gearbox as standard while the 1.0TSi 115hp version will have either a 6spd manual or a 7spd DSG automatic. The name comes from the Latin word "stairs" or "ladder", which represents the brand's evolutionary step forwards in the segment. The boot can be optioned with an electric tailgate opening and closing function.

A three-cylinder 1.0-litre TSI in 95 and 115PS forms will be joined by a 1.5-litre TSI with 150PS. Transmission options include a 5-speed manual, 6-speed manual and a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic.

Trump taps Army chief Milley to replace Dunford as top military adviser
The chairman is the highest-ranking military officer in the country and serves as the principal military adviser to the president. Milley tweeted that the Army "doesn't tolerate racism, extremism, or hatred in our ranks", seemingly a rebuke of Mr.

Visually, the new Scala can sit on 15- or 16-inch steel wheels, but high-spec models get aero-optimised 16- to 18-inch wheels.

With dimensions that make the Scala marginally longer and wider than today's Golf and more space between its front and rear axles, there should be decent space inside for passengers, too.

Plus, the hatchback will be offered with a 90-horsepower 1.0-liter engine G-TEC, which can consume as liquefied natural gas, and gasoline.

Michigan State , which went down to the wire with Duke for Carey, is the perceived favorite in the 247Sports Crystal Ball. Carey joins fellow five-star recruit Wendell Moore and four-star Boogie Ellis as members of Duke's 2019 recruiting class.

Skoda has also laid emphasis on making the Scala one of the safest option in its segment by fitting the vehicle with safety tech like lane assist, side assist, autonomous emergency braking, crew protect assist, adaptive cruise control and up to nine airbags.

The optional Sport Chassis Control package has 15mm lower suspension, firmer shocks, and two driving modes (Normal and Sport).
