Skoda Slavia Production Begins; Launch In March 2022

Skoda India today announced the commencement of production of its all-new premium mid-size sedan, the Skoda Slavia. The Slavia is likely to be launched in March 2022 with a price tag between Rs.9-15 lakhs (ex-showroom).

The Skoda Slavia is powered by a 1.0 litre 3-cylinder turbo petrol (same as the VW Polo, Skoda Rapid) and a 1.5-litre 4-cylinder TFSI turbo petrol (same engine as Skoda Kushaq, VW Tiagun) making 85kW (115ps) and 110kW (150PS) respectively, the sedan will come with a choice of either a 6-speed manual, 6-speed automatic or 7-speed DSG transmission.

“Four years ago, we pledged a renewed commitment to India with the announcement of the INDIA 2.0 project. Its success truly highlights the great collaboration between our teams across the globe and here in India. We have completed the first chapter with the successful launches of the two SUVs. Today, with the production roll out of the ŠKODA SLAVIA, we are igniting the next stage of our INDIA 2.0 product campaign. The SLAVIA is a strong testament of our intent and capability in the Indian market. The SLAVIA will not only provide a boost to the premium sedan segment, but will also showcase ŠKODA AUTO’s expertise, pedigree and legacy with sedans in terms of design, packaging, dynamics, technology and value.”

Christian Cahn von Seelen, Chairman of ŠKODA AUTO Volkswagen India Private Limited

Slavia carries the bloodline of the Octavia and the Superb, but remains very much a stand-out piece of design with all the signature elements of a Skoda – sharply contoured, crease free lines and a wide, muscular stance which exudes power and grace. Its width of 1,752 mm makes Slavia the widest offering in the segment, and enables generous amounts of space for up to five occupants. This is matched by a huge boot capacity of 521 litres. The headlights and taillights are available with LED technology and characterize the Skoda-typical crystalline details.

The sedan’s interior is based on the latest design concept of the automaker’s European models. A free-standing infotainment screen measuring up to 25.4 centimetres takes centre stage. From the Ambition trim upwards, the touch-control Climatronic with Air Care function comes as standard, while comfort features such as ventilated front seats upholstered in leather are available for the top-end Style variant.

The infotainment systems available across all variants of the new Skoda Slavia can be operated easily and intuitively, and entirely via the colour touchscreen. They feature SmartLink technology enabling the integration of smartphones. The Style trim will provide access to a plethora of MyŠKODA Connect mobile online services. Additionally, customers will have access to ŠKODA Play apps, which can be used to download a navigation function for the top-end infotainment system.

In terms of safety, the Slavia comes with excellent active and passive safety features. Occupants are protected by up to six airbags. To ensure children also have a safe journey, the sedan comes with ISOFIX anchors and Top Tether anchor points on the rear seats. ESC is another standard feature ensuring a high level of driving safety, while the Multi-Collision Brake will safely bring the vehicle to a standstill in the event of an accident. The sedan also comes with features such as Hill-Hold Control, rain and light sensors, tyre pressure monitoring system and cruise control.
