Skoda Scala: name of new Ford Focus rival confirmed

Skoda Scala

Skoda Scala
Czech firm picks a Latin-based name for its Rapid replacement, which will be revealed later this year

Skoda’s new Volkswagen Golf and Ford Focus rival, due to be revealed later this year, will be called the Scala.

The new car will effectively replace the Rapid hatchback in the Czech firm’s line-up. Scala is a Latin word that means ‘stairs’ or ‘ladder’, and company boss Bernhard Maier said that it represents Skoda’s next step forward in the compact segment. The Scala will also be the first Skoda to feature the brand’s name instead of the logo on the rear boot lid.

Maier said the Scala is “a completely new development that sets standards in terms of technology, safety and design in this class”.

The Scala is intended to be a more direct competitor than the Rapid to the big players in the volume hatchback segment, such as the Ford Focus and Vauxhall Astra.
