The Slavia is a midsize sedan that will compete against Honda City and Hyundai Verna and is based on the same MQB A0 IN platform as its siblings the Skoda Kushaq and VW Taigun. It will spawn a Volkswagen derivative in the form of the Virtus in May 2022. The Slavia will be powered by the familiar 1.0-litre petrol and 1.5-litre petrol engines.
The five-seater will be retailed in three trims namely Active, Ambition and Style. Prices of the Skoda Slavia 1.0-litre petrol variant will be announced on February 28 while that of the 1.5-litre turbo TSI will be announced on March 3, 2022.
It must be noted that the test drives and deliveries of both the engine choices will begin on the respective launch dates. Skoda launched the facelifted Kodiaq in India recently and the first batch has already been sold out.
