Review

Don't discount the Scala on the basis that it's cheap. It ticks many of the boxes that some more expensive family cars fail to do, with its supple ride, decent handling, good infotainment system, amazing rear seat space and vast boot. Only its cheap-looking interior and weaker-than-average resale values mark it down.

SE Technology is aimed at business users and runs broadly in line with the specification that comes with SE trim. The main upgrades include front and rear parking sensors and a 9.2in infotainment system with online features and in-built sat-nav.

We recommend the TSI 110, which is a cracking engine. Not only has it got enough low-end shove to keep up with the general ebb and flow of traffic with relative ease, but also decent overtaking power when you stretch its legs – it can hit 62mph from rest in 10.1sec. It has the pace over the 1.0-litre Kia Ceed, should prove more economical and it's our pick of the Scala range.
