Skoda also increased the price of the Kushaq SUV by up to Rs 70,000 last month.
Competitors and Positioning of Skoda Slavia
The Slavia was already one of the more expensive sedans in the segment, which includes models like the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, Hyundai Verna, and Honda City. In fact, the Slavia is the second most expensive car in its top-spec configuration, after the recently launched Honda City Hybrid, which costs Rs 19.49 lakh.
This increase also brings the Slavia’s price closer to that of the Kushaq, which is Skoda’s most popular model in India. Furthermore, on June 9, Volkswagen will unveil the Virtus, a sister model to the Slavia. It’ll be interesting to see how Volkswagen prices it and whether or not it can undercut the Skoda Slavia.
