Skoda recently launched its premium C Segment Sedan in the Indian Automobile Market i.e., Skoda Slavia which is available in a 1.0L TSI Engine. The Skoda Slavia 1.0L TSI begins at ₹10.69 for the ACTIVE variation and ₹15.39 for the best in class STYLE model. The Slavia formally replaces the Skoda Rapid that was ended out of creation as of late.
Let’s see what Skoda Slavia has to offer
Slavia and Kushaq share the same platform, to begin with, both the cars are offered with the same engines and similar suspensions. Although Kushaq and Slavia share the same platform but both completely belong to a different segment. Slavia has borrowed some of the features from Octavia i.e., the front grille and the headlights, speaking of which you get a projector system in Slavia to our surprise they are not halogen ones.
Following the headlight, the Slavia has a huge bonnet which makes it appear much more aggressive on the roads. The side view of Slavia completely resonated with Octavia and Superb in terms of design.
Slavia is offering the longest wheelbase in the segment thus making the rides much more comfortable. Offering a ground clearance of 179mm making the highest in C Segment Sedan.
The rear side of Slavia is much more appealing than the front although the rear LED setup resonates with the Octavia but in a much more decent way. Slavia comes with 16-inch alloy wheels along with a shark fin antenna on the roof.
Slavia is offered in a dual-tone theme interior with a combination of black and beige with a subtle touch of golden on the dashboard.
To our disappointment, Slavia has loads of hard plastics be it the dashboard or the door which can be irritating at times.
It also gets a 9-inch touch screen with Apple Car Play and Android Auto. You also get a height-adjustable manual driver seat. The Seats of Slavia are also firm so long drives are much more comfortable. Speaking of the Steering Wheel it is a 4-way adjustable tilt and telescopic steering wheel along with steering mounted controls. Slavia offers a digital cockpit which is first in the segment. Skoda has offers 8 Speaker systems and 1 subwoofer in the Slavia for a premium sound experience.
Talking about safety the Slavia follows the typical Skoda character. The door is pretty heavy giving a thud sound. It also gets 6 airbags, ABS, EBD, Traction Control etc.,
