Skoda has teamed up with ABT Sportsline for a Germany-exclusive Scala Edition S, priced at €33,790. Based on the Monte Carlo trim, the Scala Edition S gets visual upgrades and more power.
The exterior of the car gets a sporty body kit with a front bumper spoiler, a longer roof spoiler, a diffuser, and 18-inch gloss black alloy wheels. Dark elements such as the grille frame, side skirts and exterior mirror caps have been carried over from the Monte Carlo. LED headlights and LED taillights with animated turn signals come standard.
The cabin features a leather-wrapped steering wheel, sport seats with black fabric upholstery, stainless steel pedals, and Bolero infotainment system with Bluetooth, SmartLink and Skoda Care Connect.
The 1.5-litre (1,498 cc) 4-cylinder TSI petrol engine pumps out 140 kW (190 metric hp) and 290 Nm (214 lb-ft) of torque, which is 40 metric hp and 40 Nm (29.5 lb-ft) more compared to the stock tune. The engine is paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox. In addition, the sports suspension lowers the ride height by about 15 mm.
