Prior to global debut, SKODA SLAVIA previewed in official sketches
The SKODA SLAVIA sedan will break cover on November 18 and it should make its way to India by mid-2022. In the latest development, the brand has released sketches of the car, revealing its design details. The pictures indicate that it will have a coupe-like silhouette, a wide hexagonal grille, multi-spoke wheels, and slim taillamps. Here are more details.
The car will have alloy wheels and narrow headlamps
SKODA SLAVIA will be built on the MQB-A0-IN platform. It will flaunt a sloping roofline, a sculpted hood, a hexagonal grille, and LED headlamps with L-shaped DRLs. The car will be flanked by indicator-mounted ORVMs and multi-spoke alloy wheels. A bumper with a full-width chrome strip and wrap-around taillights will grace the rear end of the four-wheeler.
Two engine options will be available
SKODA SLAVIA will run on a 1.0-liter, 3-cylinder, TSI turbo-petrol engine that makes 115hp of power or a 1.5-liter, 4-cylinder, TSI motor that generates 150hp. Transmission duties will be handled by a 6-speed manual, a 6-speed torque converter automatic, or a 7-speed DSG gearbox.
The sedan will get six airbags and a sunroof
SKODA SLAVIA will have a spacious cabin, featuring auto climate control, an electric sunroof, and a multifunctional steering wheel with cruise control. It will house a digital instrument cluster and a touchscreen infotainment panel with support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Six airbags, a multi-collision braking system, and a rear parking camera will ensure the safety of the passengers.
