Skoda Auto has released the first official exterior sketches previewing the refreshed versions of its Scala compact model and Kamiq city SUV. The Czech carmaker has given both models progressive design and technology enhancements as well as features from higher vehicle classes. The new Scala and Kamiq will be celebrating their digital world premieres on August 1, 2023.

The model refresh comes four years on from their initial production launch. Both the Scala and Kamiq now sport redesigned headlights, front and rear aprons and grille. New alloy wheels and tailgate lettering in line with Skoda’s updated CI complete the revamp.

The Scala’s slimmer headlights extend all the way to the grille, underscoring the car’s dynamic allure. The air intake in the new front apron is divided by additional side wings. Painted in the body colour, these are also found in the diffuser on the revised rear apron, which is flanked by crystalline elements. The tail-lights now feature a new and more refined graphic design.

Kamiq’s enhanced SUV presence

The updated Kamiq now has more visual presence. The upper element of the signature split headlights is now slimmer and has a more pronounced design. The larger and more upright Skoda grille presents distinctive double slats that form a U-shape at the bottom. In the front apron, a painted area below the grille and an air intake accentuate the vehicle’s width, complemented by a sturdy silver diffuser that provides underbody protection.

The rear diffuser consists of a wide upper section in black and a rugged silver-coloured lower section. The revised L-shaped light characteristic of the split tail lights visually ties in with the reflectors, which also adopt an L-shape.
