The Scala Launch Edition, as its name suggests, is an initial run of well-equipped cars at a sharp introductory price. At $35,990, it's not mucking about, especially considering the base 110 TSI is $28,990 with an automatic transmission.
On the Launch Edition, you get 18-inch Vega Aero alloys, leather and synthetic suede seats, power driver's seat, sat nav, auto LED headlights and wipers, wireless CarPlay (Android Auto is USB at the moment but a software update will fix that later in 2021), heated seats front and rear and auto-parking.
That's on top of a powered tailgate, reverse parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, wireless phone charger, keyless entry and start, leather steering wheel, dual-zone climate control, panoramic sunroof and a sports chassis picked up from the Monte Carlo and much of which is also on the base model.
Another addition to the Launch spec is the 9.2-inch touchscreen (up from 8.0-inches) with wireless CarPlay to go with the wireless charging and the eight-speaker stereo. It's a really good system, with a snappy interface, but it did keep forgetting to load CarPlay. It turned out it was silently disabling it and I had to go menu-diving to sort it out. It never really settled in, so one hopes that on the car's next visit for a service, a software flash would sort that out.
