It is based on the MQB A0 IN shared with the Kushaq, Taigun and Virtus.

From the press release -

Quote:
The KUSHAQ and the SLAVIA as well as two Volkswagen models are all based on the MQB-A0-IN version of the Modular Transverse Toolkit, which ŠKODA has adapted to meet the particular needs of the Indian market. In vehicle production, ŠKODA AUTO achieves localization of up to 95 percent.

› Second ŠKODA model based on the India-specific MQB-A0-IN platform
› Choice of two powerful and efficient TSI engines
Up to six airbags and a wealth of assistance systems
› Volkswagen Group is investing one billion euros in the ŠKODA AUTO-led INDIA 2.0 project

The SLAVIA is 4,541 mm* long, 1,752 mm* wide and has a height of 1,487 mm*; the wheelbase measures 2,651 mm*. While its compact exterior dimensions make it a perfect fit for cities, this brand-new car is also ideally suited for everyday family use thanks to its brand-typical generous interior.

The brand-new saloon comes with excellent active and passive safety features. Occupants are protected by up to six airbags – for the driver and front passenger, as well as optional front side airbags and head curtain airbags.

There is a choice of two powerful and efficient TSI engines for the new ŠKODA SLAVIA. They offer both superior driving performance and high levels of efficiency.
The entry-level 1.0-litre TSI develops 85 kW (115 PS)* from its three cylinders, while the four-cylinder 1.5-litre TSI has an output of 110 kW (150 PS)*.
Both engines transfer their power to the front wheels. The SLAVIA comes with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard. A six-speed automatic transmission is optional for the 1.0-litre TSI while the 1.5-litre TSI can also be paired with a seven-speed DSG. The 1.5 TSI is offered with active cylinder technology (ACT), which automatically shuts down two cylinders when the engine load is low. This enhances fuel efficiency.

One thing is confirmed - Slavia is replacing the Rapid in India. Multiple channels confirm it.

Mod Note: Our Skoda Slavia Report has been taken live at this link. Please continue the discussion over on the new thread. Thanks!
