The new Skoda Slavia premium mid-size sedan has been launched with a price tag starting at Rs 10.69 lakh (ex-showroom).

 

The Skoda Slavia is the second car from the Czech brand to be launched from their made-for-India MQB-A0-IN platform, after their Kushaq SUV. The Slavia comes with a distinctive design and an advanced and efficient 1.0 TSI engine, with a 1.5-litre four-cylinder TSI Motor set to follow. Skoda offers the Slavia in three trims: Active, Ambition and Style.

The Skoda Slavia comes powered by a 1.0-litre, three-cylinder turbo-petrol engine that sends 115 hp and 178 Nm of torque to the front wheels via a choice of six-speed manual or a six-speed, torque-convertor automatic. The Slavia is able to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 10.7 seconds and returns a claimed fuel efficiency figure of 19.47 km/l.

Except for length, where the Honda City wins by 8 millimetres, the Skoda Slavia leads the premium mid-size segment in all other aspect of dimensions with height, width, wheelbase and ground clearance measuring at 1,507 mm, 1,752 mm, 2,651 mm and 179 mm respectively. The Slavia also leads its class in terms of boot volume with a capacity of 521 litres. With the rear seats folded, this expands to 1,050 litres.

The Skoda Slavia comes with a fair amount of safety features including up to 6 airbags, Electronic Stability Control, Electronic Differential System for enhanced traction under cornering, and Multi Collision Brake. Other features such as parking sensors, automatic brake disc cleaning function, rear-view camera, tyre pressure monitoring, hill-hold control, cruise control, auto headlamps and wipers are also available. ISOFIX anchors and tether point anchors on the roof for child seats are also provided for the safety of younger passengers.

The Skoda Slavia comes with an advanced 10-inch touchscreen with the ability to download Skoda Play apps, wireless SmartLink and Skoda Connect for all infotainment and navigation needs. For added benefit for the driver, the Slavia comes equipped with a 8-inch coloured programmable digital instrument cluster. For the rear passengers, dual air vents and dual USB ports are available.

Here is how the Skoda Slavia is priced:

The Slavia comes with a 4-year/100,000kms warranty as standard. In addition to that, Skoda offers various maintenance packages under their ‘Peace of Mind’ programme. The ownership cost of the Slavia is further kept in check thanks to the manufacturing process being localized up to 95%, ensuring most parts and components being made locally, making replacements affordable and readily available.

The Skoda Slavia is offered with a variety of colour choices: Crystal Blue, Tornado Red (exclusive to India), Candy White, Brilliant Silver and Carbon Steel.
