Skoda is lining up its Scala family hatchback as the next model to get the vRS treatment, according to a senior official – and requirements on CO2 emissions could mean that it becomes the first hybrid performance vehicle from the company.
The Czech brand recently launched the Kodiaq vRS, its second hot model after the Octavia vRS. But the Scala is a conventional rival for the Ford Focus and VW Golf which in theory would be a more natural base for a ‘traditional’ hot hatch than the larger Octavia.
