AZIR KHOBOR, Mumbai, 10th February: ŠKODA AUTO India today announced the showcase of the all-new premium mid-size sedan, SLAVIA at its showrooms across India. Customers can get a personal experience with the car, along with a detailed immersion of the product features. While pre-bookings are already underway, the test-drives and customer deliveries will commence in early March 2022, post the price announcement.
Zac Hollis, Brand Director, ŠKODA AUTO India, said, “The SLAVIA is the second jewel for ŠKODA AUTO India under the 2.0 project. This sedan will strengthen our position in this dynamic market, and also re-energise and revive the premium mid-size sedan segment. With the SLAVIA, we are confident of putting the love back into sedans. This gorgeous car is now just one step away for our customers. This occasion is momentous also because the SLAVIA name is the advent of a new legacy for ŠKODA AUTO, in India, and also on a global scale.”
The SLAVIA is ŠKODA AUTO India’s second vehicle based on made-for-India MQB-A0-IN platform after the KUSHAQ SUV introduced in July 2021. Powered by a 1.0 litre 3-cylinder turbopetrol and a 1.5-litre 4-cylinder turbopetrol making 85kW (115ps) and 110kW (150PS) respectively, the SLAVIA will also come with a choice of a 6-speed manual, 6-speed automatic and 7-speed DSG transmissions.
At 1752mm, the ŠKODA SLAVIA is the widest car in its premium mid-size sedan segment providing class-leading space and comfort for five in its generous cabin. The SLAVIA also leads its class in terms of boot space with a capacity of 521 litres. The rear seats are not only abundant with space but also looks after the comfort and convenience of the rear passengers with dual AC vents and dual USB ports to charge personal devices.
On the inside, the front is accentuated with a dashboard lined with circular AC vents. Taking centre- stage in the dash is a 25.4 cms (10-inch) touchscreen for all infotainment and navigation needs. With SmartLink technology and by downloading the MyŠKODA app onto the phone, the system allows for complete integration with the phone and customised preferences, media, entertainment and offline navigation in areas with poor connectivity. Moreover, the touchscreen also has a design element running under it serving two purposes. It is a reflection of the ŠKODA grille outside and also acts as a rest for the wrist, making it ergonomic, convenient and safe for the user to operate the touchscreen.
As for passenger safety, the SLAVIA features six airbags, Anti-Lock Brakes, Electronic Stability Control, Multi-Collision Brake among others. Enhancing safety for younger passengers are ISOFIX
anchors and tether point anchors in rear seats. Further improving cabin quality is the Aircare function that filters outside air coming into the cabin.
The safety elements continue outside with features like automatic headlights, rain-sensing wipers and air pressure sensors in the tyres enhancing visibility and safety irrespective of road conditions and weather.
