Skoda Slavia 1.0 TSI Launched At Rs 10.69 Lakh
In India, the much-anticipated Skoda Slavia car has finally arrived. The 1.0 TSI-powered models, meanwhile, have only been introduced today, with pricing starting at Rs 10.69 lakh and rising to Rs 15.39 lakh (ex-showroom, India) for the top-spec version. On March 3, prices for the more powerful 1.5 TSI variant will be revealed.
Skoda Slavia Engine And Gearbox Option
As previously stated, Skoda will sell the Slavia with two turbo-petrol engines, but only the lower capacity engine – the 115hp, 175Nm, 1.0-litre, three-cylinder TSI engine – has been priced. It is available with either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed torque convertor automatic transmission. The 150hp, 1.5-litre, four-cylinder TSI engine, which will be available with either a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed DCT automatic gearbox, is the other, more powerful engine scheduled to join the lineup in the coming days.
Interior And Features
The multilayer dashboard, free-standing 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system, digital instrument cluster, and dual tone beige and black interior theme, all of which come standard on the top-spec specification, give the Slavia a very tidy and upmarket look. Connected car technology, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, automated climate control, heated front seats, leatherette upholstery, a sunroof, a wireless charger, rear AC vents, and a rear centre armrest are all available on the fully equipped Style model. Six airbags, ESC, an electronic differential system (EDS), and a tyre pressure monitor are among the many safety measures included.
Design And Dimensions
During the sedan’s global launch late last year, Skoda showed the new sedan’s inside and external style. The design of the Slavia is fairly similar to that of the other Skoda sedans (Octavia and Superb), as it is sleek, perfectly proportioned, and elegant, with just enough chrome touches to appeal to Indian shoppers. The Slavia is substantially bigger than the Rapid it replaces, thanks to the Volkswagen Group’s specialised MQB-A0-IN platform (same as the Kushaq). The Slavia is one of the biggest vehicles in the sector, being 4,541mm long, 1,752mm wide, 1,487mm height, and having a 2,651mm wheelbase.
Skoda Slavia Price And Rivals
The all-new Skoda Slavia competes with the VW Vento – which will be replaced by the Virtus later this year – the Honda City, Hyundai Verna and the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz.
