Czech automaker Skoda is ramping up to enter another new market by launching its mid-size sedan model, the Skoda Slavia in the Indian region. It’s clear that this confirms that they are continuing to expand its business practices in India at an increasing tempo.
Skoda Slavia is the next big launch from the Czech auto maker, which has been making a determined push to take a larger piece of the Indian automobile market. Skoda Slavia will be triggered later this year and will come in at a mid-size segment, similar to Skoda’s Kushak SUV.
Zac Hollis, the brand director for Skoda Auto in India, also released a statement recently when he said that “Skoda has a rich global legacy spanning more than 125 years. He added that the Slavia name represents much of what made Skoda so successful.
Škoda also wants their Indian customers to know that they expect a lot from them in return. The company hopes the people in India will find satisfaction when they buy cars from them and will even encourage their families and friends to do the same. In addition, Škoda maintains that it is important for its customers to feel safe in cars in general, but particularly when it comes to trusting a brand in a foreign country in hopes of its longevity.
Skoda Slavia launch Date in India
The Skoda Slavia will be available for purchase in early 2022. The model has already been showcased multiple times garnishing attention by featuring its spacious interior garnished by more upmarket interiors, and powerful set of engines. Skoda is also repositioning its new sedan to sit on top of its current lineup.
The new sedan will feature an upgraded cabin system as well as a more luxurious interior design language. In addition, there will be more powerful engines offered for this vehicle alongside more space inside the car due to a more spacious cabin area for this premium sedan model.
Skoda Slavia Price
Slavia is being pitched as a stylish, snazzy and premium mid-size sedan by the company here. The Slavia Sport is likely to be priced around Rs 11-15 lakh (ex-showroom), and there’s a high possibility the top of the line variant will go for a higher value.
Rivals of New Skoda Slavia sedan
Skoda has its work cut out for it as the Slavia will face-off against sister car, the Volkswagen Virtus. It will also have to compete against the Honda City, Hyundai Verna and Maruti Suzuki Ciaz. The company is expected to position the Slavia on a higher end of the segment, which is probably why it’s equipped with luxuries such as a touchscreen infotainment system and features that include a speed-sensitive steering wheel, metal pedals and ambient lighting.
