Skoda has updated its Scala hatchback and Kamiq SUV, with both receiving similar updates in terms of design and tech, but no major changes for their shared drivetrains.
Both have only been revealed internationally so far, with Australian details to come closer to their local launch, but the headline changes will likely be the same for our market.
Most visibly obvious in the update is the slimmer headlight design on its more upright front fascia - particularly on the Kamiq. The Scala has redesigned bumpers at the front and rear too. Both models have optional LED matrix headlights.

Inside, an 8.0-inch driver screen and an 8.25-inch multimedia display are standard, while USB ports are updated to faster USB-C ports for connectivity and charging.
Both also add more safety features like Front Assist with Pedestrian Monitor, Lane Assist and Traffic Sign Recognition, and come with "up to" nine airbags.
Skoda has also made small changes like an optional automatic tailgate with 'kick' sensor, redesigned interior elements like seats, and more sustainable materials.
Importantly, the Scala and Kamiq retain the same petrol engine options which in Australia will likely consist of a 1.0-litre turbocharged three-cylinder engine (with 85kW and 200Nm) or a 1.5-litre turbo four with 110kW and 250Nm - stay tuned for confirmation upon a local announcement.
The latter of the three engines is capable of cylinder deactivation, while both engines are paired with a seven-speed DSG transmission.
In Australia, the current Scala and Kamiq are the entry points into the Skoda passenger car and SUV segments respectively, starting from $32,790 before on-road costs for a Scala Ambition 85TSI, or $35,490 a Kamiq Style.
