An intriguing snapshot appeared on the Web, in which autoexperts “spotted” a new modification of the popular Skoda Scala hatchback with improved off-road qualities. No official commentary was accompanied by a snapshot, so we can only guess at what the automaker hinted at.

On the official website of the Czech brand Skoda in social networks appeared a snapshot of a special modification of the new Scala model. Immediately after the publication of the mysterious photo, Internet users suggested that the picture shows an off-road version of the hatchback called “Scout”. Recall conversations and the emergence of a cross-version of the popular hatch has been going on for more than a year. However, official confirmation of plans to create a Skoda Scala Scout has not yet received.

The fact that we are facing an off-road version of the Scala model is indicated only by the plastic lining of the wheel arch. Other “cross” details, in addition to plastic protection, were not included in the frame.

 If the fans of the brand correctly identified the novelty, then in the Scout version this plastic body kit will be located along the entire perimeter of the car. Also expect an increased ground clearance and “older” tires.

 As engines under the hood of the Skoda Scala Scout, experts expect to see a 115-horsepower turbo diesel with a 1.6-liter working volume or a 1.5-liter gasoline engine with 150 horsepower. These are the most powerful power units in the Skoda Scala motor range.
