Skoda's Works Drivers Kalle Rovanpera and Jan Kopecky were impressed after first test drives of the Scala and Kamiq Monte Carlo models.

08 Dec 2019 | International News : Czech Republic

The sporty new Skoda Scala Monte Carlo and Skoda Kamiq Monte Carlo have made a great impression on World Rally Champions Kalle Rovanpera and Jan Kopecky.

The two sporty lifestyle models reference the brand's successful rally history
The two Skoda Motorsport Works Drivers took to Czech Republic roads to give the Scala Monte Carlo and the Kamiq Monte Carlo an intense workout and selected their personal favourite.

The two sporty lifestyle models reference the brand's successful rally history and impressed the pro drivers every inch of the way. Production of the new Monte Carlo variants at the main plant in Mlada Boleslav is already under way, and the first customers can look forward to receiving their vehicles before the end of 2019.

"I immediately liked the Scala Monte Carlo's extremely sporty lines. Due to the different chassis settings, the driver can take full advantage of the superb handling especially on twisting roads. This is also where the qualities of the seats particularly come into their own. They offer perfect lateral support while being very comfortable also on long-distance trips. What's also cool is that the Scala is always online and integrates my smartphone without a hitch," says Kalle Rovanpera.

Jan Kopecky appreciated the fact that the Kamiq Monte Carlo has plenty of space while delivering a sporty drive
Jan Kopecky, on the other hand, is quite taken with the Kamiq Monte Carlo, "As a family man, I appreciate having plenty of space. In this respect, the Kamiq Monte Carlo meets my requirements to perfection, while impressing with sporting appeal in its exterior and interior design. Its compact dimensions and raised seating position ensure that this city SUV performs really well in urban areas. And when I want to have a bit more fun on the road without the kids, I can set the Sports Chassis Control to 'Sport' and enjoy an even more agile car at the touch of a button."

Skoda uses the Monte Carlo designation for the sporty lifestyle versions of its compact models - a tradition dating back to a limited special edition of the Skoda Popular released in 1936. In this context, Monte Carlo not only evokes the splendour and glamour of the Principality of Monaco, it also refers to the legendary motor racing tradition of the Monte Carlo Rally, an event that was first held in 1911 and has seen numerous Skoda successes over the years.
