The price of the Slavia is expected to be announced early next month; display cars are now available at dealerships.
Skoda has announced that static display units of its new mid-size sedan are now available at all of its dealerships, with test drives to begin in the coming weeks, following the opening of order books and the start of series production for the Slavia. The automaker also hinted that a price announcement would be made in early March. Following the price announcement, deliveries will begin.
- Slavia gets three trim level options
- Will be powered by 1.0-litre and 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engines
Skoda Slavia features and Variants
The Slavia will come in three trim levels: Active, Ambition, and Style. A 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, ventilated seats, and an electric sunroof are among the highlights of the top-spec trim. Six airbags, ESC, an electronic differential system (EDS), hill-hold control (optional), and a rear parking camera are among the safety features.
In the midsize sedan segment, the Slavia will be the widest model with the longest wheelbase. On the inside, this should ideally translate to plenty of shoulder and leg room.
Engine and Transmission options for The Skoda Slavia
The Slavia will be available with two turbo-petrol engines under the hood. The first is a 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine with 115 horsepower and 175 Nm of peak torque. A 1.5-litre four-cylinder turbo-petrol engine with 150 horsepower and 250 Nm of peak torque is also available.
Both engines will come with a 6-speed manual transmission. A 6-speed torque converter is available for the 1.0-litre engine, and a 7-speed dual clutch gearbox (DSG) is available for the 1.5-litre engine.
Price Expectations and Competitors for The Skoda Slavia
Because the Slavia is based on the localised MQB-A0-IN platform, which it shares with the Kushaq, pricing should be competitive. It’ll cost between Rs 10 lakh and Rs 16 lakh (ex-showroom). The Slavia will compete with the Honda City, Hyundai Verna, and Maruti Suzuki Ciaz when it debuts.
