Rapid successor (Slavia) spotted in Pune.

Interior is very similar to the new gen Octavia which was just launched in India!

Bigger rapid or smaller Jetta. Size is perfect and they may price the top variant 18-19 Lakhs.

Have a look at the camouflage on bus and car! Natural camouflage on the bus looks better than the one on car. What do these transport depot employees do?

Thanks to Gautam Jain for sending this in. Heartfelt gratitude for sharing it with other enthusiasts via this Team-BHP page!

Quote:
Team,

While coming from Pune to Mumbai, I managed to see 2 test mules of the upcoming Skoda Sedan.

Few stand-outs, that I managed to note:

1. Length is more than the Rapid and it can be easily seen.
2. LED headlights, fog-Lights and LED taillights too.
3. Felt it to be higher than my Rapid.
4. Front head restraints felt to be tall (like Baleno).
5. Interior felt to be in black (not sure as it can be wrapped or hidden)
6. Interiors looked similar to Kushaq
7. ORVMs seems to be used from previous gen Octavia (it’s taller and wider than current-gen Rapid).
8. Rear legroom seemed to be spacious enough.

Also, got my dashcam recording through which, we can see size comparison with other cars.

Spotted in Aundh area, Pune today evening.
Looks to be the same mule.

Size wise, it feels very similar to the Rapid.

What are the thoughts of the members here about the base model of the this rapid replacement? Do you think the new rapid's base model would be still priced under 10 lakhs?

Raptor3624 The pricing you quoted is next to impossible as it is made clear by various queries regarding pricing which were asked on the twitter handle of Mr. Zac hollis (head of Skoda India).
This car is based on the new MQB AO platform and will be feature laden in all variants. So eventually it will be pricier than the current generation.

This test mule could be the Skoda Slavia sedan,one of the first sedans from the MQB-AO IN platform.
But as rumours go,this could be positioned above the Skoda rapid sedan in our market.
Mostly will be positioned against the likes of Honda city,Hyundai Verna.

That's new Skoda Octavia, most probably reaching dealership from the stockyard. Those are white protective films used while transporting the car.

The Premium Sedan spied again, is a notchback with sunroof :

Quote:
The headlights are LED units and the fog lamps are halogen units. The side features 16-inch alloy wheels which seem to be finished in a black shade. The rear features a notchback design which is a design characteristic followed by all Skoda sedans. It features LED taillamps as well.
Quote:
notice the sunroof and shark fin antenna in the roof as well.

2022 Skoda Slavia Spied In The Alps Preparing For Indian Family Car Duty:
Quote:
It looks larger than the aging Rapid and we're getting the impression it's heavily related to the Volkswagen Virtus, Latin America's Polo sedan, but in a more practical liftback body style.
Quote:
It's unclear whether the new family car will eventually replace the Rapid altogether in the world's second-most populous country. That could very well happen seeing as how a Skoda India official recently said the Rapid will not be renewed.
Quote:
a lot of the design cues will be borrowed from the Scala and consequently the Russian-spec Rapid. Underneath that disguised hood is either a 1.0- or a 1.5-liter gasoline engine since the powertrains will probably be borrowed from the Kushaq.
Quote:
Aside from the right-hand-drive layout of the prototype, another clue suggesting the car is India bound is the generous ground clearance necessary to handle India's typically rough roads

Quote:
sales are not scheduled to commence until early 2022.

Looks like the new car may not be called "Slavia".

Laura, may be?
