Order books open for sportier versions of the Skoda Kamiq and Scala

New Monte Carlo versions bring sportier styling and additional standard equipment.

Skoda has announced that order books are now open for sportier Monte Carlo versions of the firm’s new Scala hatchback and Kamiq crossover.

The grade, which is already available on the Fabia supermini, offers sportier styling and enhanced equipment – acting as the new range-toping trim for both models.

Both cars gain a gloss black styling kit, large 18-inch alloy wheels, a revised front bumper, along with a black rear diffuser and black boot lettering. The Kamiq also gains a panoramic opening sunroof, while the Scala features a fixed glass roof and an extended piece of tailgate glass.

The sporty touches also extend to the interior, with each model featuring ambient red lighting, a black roof lining and revised door sills. Sports seats, a revised steering wheel and aluminium pedals also feature across the two models. Additional chrome detailing and part-leather upholstery features on the Scala.

Both the Kamiq and Scala Monte Carlo are available with the same line-up of engines, with a 113bhp 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine available alongside a more powerful 148bhp 1.5-litre petrol unit. Each is fitted as standard with a six-speed manual gearbox, though you can also choose an optional seven-speed DSG automatic transmission.

The Scala Monte Carlo is priced from £22,680, with the Kamiq Monte Carlo available from £23,305. Order books are open, with first deliveries expected in spring.
