Why does this story matter?
- The SKODA SLAVIA has been announced as a part of the brand's "India 2.0" strategy to launch four new models in association with Volkswagen.
- The SLAVIA serves as a replacement to the RAPID model on our shores. It is the first sedan to be built on the localized MQB-A0-IN platform and is tipped to be priced competitively. It will rival the Hyundai VERNA.

The SKODA SLAVIA has a sloping roofline, a muscular hood, sleek LED headlamps, and a chrome-surrounded butterfly grille with vertical slats. It is flanked by black B-pillars, ORVMs, and 16-inch alloy wheels. A shark-fin antenna, a raked windscreen, and wrap-around C-shaped LED taillights grace the rear end. The four-wheeler has a length of 4,541mm, a wheelbase of 2,651mm, and a width of 1,752mm.
