  • The force is with Scala




    • New ŠKODA Scala modified for emergency services
    • Conversion options includes police, fire and rescue and ambulance variants
    • Five-star NCAP rating gives blue light fleets the best safety standards
    • Reliability, practicality and value for money are the standout attributes for blue light forces in the UK


    The newly launched Scala has been called into service to join the ranks of ŠKODA’s celebrated blue-light fleet line-up.


    The ŠKODA Scala’s advanced driver assistance and safety features make it an ideal partner for the emergency services. The brand also offers a ‘one-stop shop’ for blue-light fleets that includes full vehicle conversion, which sees the generous interior – with a vast 467 litre boot (extendable to 1,410 litres with rear seats folded down) – able to fit both passengers and equipment, comfortably.


    The new Scala is one of the safest cars in its segment and has achieved the full five-star Euro NCAP safety rating giving added peace of mind for both driver and passengers on emergency high-speed call outs. Designed with a range of driver assistance systems
    the Scala includes Adaptive Cruise Control, Front Assist with City Emergency Brake and Lane Assist.


    The compact car also features Side Assist that detects vehicles approaching from behind or that are in the car’s blind spot. While the existing Blind Spot Detect has a range of up to 20m, Side Assist can detect vehicles up to 70m away, which makes motorway and dual carriageway driving far safer. Rear Traffic Alert is also an integral part of the system, which acts to warn the driver about objects moving behind the vehicle when reversing.


    When fully converted the Scala features 360-degree visibility thanks to powerful LED signal lights built into the front screen, grille, tailgate and number plate – all complemented by a 100-amp three tone siren.

    Henry Williams, Head of fleet, ŠKODA UK, said: “Our partnership with emergency services teams stretches back over a century. It’s that extensive knowledge in the sector that makes ŠKODA a reliable partner for both technologically advanced cars and value for money, and Scala, our most connected car to date, more than fits the bill.”

    The Scala is available with three engine options (two petrol and one diesel) with power outputs ranging from 115PS to 150PS. The petrol range consists of one 1.0 TSI unit with 115PS and a 1.5 TSI engine with 150PS. A third petrol unit developing 95PS will be added to the line-up later this year. The Scala’s diesel option is a 1.6 TDI unit that generates 115PS. All engines, with the exception of the 1.0 TSI 95PS are available with an optional seven-speed DSG transmission.


    ŠKODA has introduced a ‘one-stop’ shop package for emergency services fleets, which allows vehicles to be Outright Purchased or financed through Volkswagen Financial Services. Fleet managers now have the additional option of contract hire for added flexibility and value-for money or they can opt for a cost-effective leasing package.


    Alongside hassle-free finance solutions, ŠKODA fleet can provide the vehicles fully converted to suit specific requirements, and fleet managers have the peace of mind that the conversion, breakdown recovery, service, maintenance and repair requirements are built into one package.

    Re: Brand New S7 Vorsprung missing the Parking Assist Feature

    I’m still working on it. They are being very evasive at the moment especially since I mentioned that I think they might have breached my statutory rights

    I now have my car and can confirm it does not have that feature either. I went in to MyAudi in the website rather than the app and it listed all the features

    Re: Wishbone

    I did use the pins. I took it to the dealers to have the alignment done too, and I was told the driver’s side camber (I think) was just off the mark?!

    Remember if you did not use alignment pins, get it checked...

    Sounds like you'll get there one way or another. Take a look at the driver's door to see what screw heads you'll need to work with.

    A4 3.0 TDi - yes another one!

    A friend purchased this a few months back. I had dark suspicions over it at the time but I kept quiet, this means I now feel guilty for this little cowbag.

    That's why I mentioned this. If you have an address within the EU for me after that, that's no problem either. Oh and - for group purchases please

    You can fit the Shalambra wishbones but it can get pricey and few companies offered them last time I looked.

    Hello everyone. Could someone help please ? I have a Passat estate 2014. The front wishbones are very corroded, they’re the steel ones. I’d like to change

    Re: Bucking bronco. Vacuum problem?

    The turbo has a wastegate as it is not a VNT unit so no VANES, if it was stuck open you would have underboost. Check the charge pressure control lines

    Re: B5 a4 Power steering failure?

    Certainly not a rack prone to failure, any visible leaks around the boots?
