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, 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.

Trim: SE L

SE L trim is worth considering because it still represents good value and adds micro-suede seat inserts, bigger 17in wheels,front fog lights, LED rear lights, dynamic indicators, privacy glass, climate control, electrically folding door mirrors, and keyless entry and start. You also get a bigger 9.2in infotainment screen with online connectivity. 

Engine: 1.6 TDI

Provides a good swell of low-end shove, but it's no quicker than the 1.0 TSI 115 flat out and it's the least hushed engine in the range. The only benefit over the petrols is its fuel economy, because while CO2 emissions are the best in the range company car drivers will have to pay the 4% diesel supplement that bumps up your company car tax.
