Why Skoda Scala is suddenly 1900 euros cheaper

Now that things are going a little bit economically, the Skoda importer saw the market return to the Skoda Scala Active, until the beginning of this year the implementation under the Ambition. The Skoda Scala Active has the same 1.0 liter three-cylinder engine as the Scala Ambition, but with 95 instead of 110 hp. In addition to 15 hp, the Scala Active also loses one gear, which means that it has a five-speed manual gearbox.
