Skoda has provided a first look at the exterior of the facelifted Scala hatchback and Kamiq crossover SUV models. 

Set to premiere on August 1, both models have received several aesthetic upgrades to bring them in line with Skoda’s onslaught of new and updated products

Both models will adopt redesigned headlights; the Scala’s triangular headlight cluster will be replaced by a slimmer setup fitted with LED strip light features, while the strip headlights of the Kamiq will become even thinner and the daytime running lights will be more compact. 

The front ends of both have received an upgrade, with honeycomb grilles shouldered by more aggressive air intakes, marked by additional side wings, making for a sportier appearance. 

Both rear ends have also received an upgrade featuring similar design elements cohesive with the front aprons. 

Revised tail lights with a slimmer, geometric design and a rear diffuser with additional side air vents can be seen on the Scala. 

On the Kamiq, L-shaped split tail lights sit above a bulkier black and silver rear diffuser. 

New black alloy wheels with a minimalist geometric design can also be seen on both models. 

Refreshed tailgate lettering in line with Skoda’s brand update marks the models as part of the brand’s upcoming product generation

Launched in 2018 and 2019 respectively, the Scala and Kamiq have been a staple of the Czech brand’s lineup. 

The Kamiq was the brand’s best-selling model in 2022 with 1633 examples finding Australian homes.

While Skoda hasn’t hinted towards any major interior changes for the facelifted models, it may incorporate subtle changes influenced by the Vision 7S concept car. 

Skoda Australia has confirmed the mid-life updated versions of the Scala and Kamiq are coming Down Under in 2024, along with the facelifted Octavia and electric Enyaq.

While Skoda plans to bring the Enyaq iV to Australia as its first EV in the market, production shortages mean local deliveries probably won’t start until 2024.

Skoda also has new generations of the Kodiaq and Superb currently in the later stages of testing

The Kodiaq will be growing in size and is set to arrive with several electrified powertrain options, including a plug-in hybrid (PHEV) with 100km of range when it launches in Australia around mid-2024.

The new Superb doesn’t appear to be straying too far from its current silhouette, although it will be significantly changed under the skin.
