It was published in Autocar latest edition and I had shared the image of news in Kushaq thread.

The missing airbags on the AT variants too! They were quick to realise the mistake and course correct. EPC issues got dragged on for far too long - but thankfully Skoda seems to have addressed that as well now, and these learnings should translate to the Slavia.

Looking forward to the unveil tomorrow. Unlike the highly competitive SUV segment, Skoda actually has some freedom to position their product in the sedan space considering all the old and bland rivals with no new major threats on the horizon.

If the sedan weighs less than the Kushaq - we might be looking at a car that does an early 8.xx seconds to 100 in the 1.5 DSG trims. Should leave everything else in the competition far far behind.

Slavia static unveil

Gets the same 8 inch virtual cockpit like the VW Taigun and not the full one from the Octavia/Superb.

A decent looking car inside-out but that raised GC really kills the looks! Overall, nothing which wows you.

Official pics of the Skoda Slavia:

Quote:
Škoda Slavia is presented primarily as a car for India, but brand representatives admit that the new sedan also has export potential. It is expected to be sold in nearby Nepal or Sri Lanka, where Kushaq is also sold. In the future, the sale of a car in North Africa, for example, is not excluded, it would also have potential in South America.

The car looks absolutely stunning! Will have to for the variant wise price distribution though. No way the ‘style’ trim in 1.5L AT combo is going to be near the Honda City in terms of OTR price. Can’t wait for the TBHP style review which includes the finer details, that will also tell about the overall quality as compared to the Kushaq. Very impressive!

Looks really nice and premium. The raised GC could be a good way to get customers interested in Sedans again - best of both worlds in a way. Ability to drive on crater ridden roads without scraping while getting the benefits of a sedan with better handling, bigger boot etc.

If Škoda prices this well, it could become the go to car for enthusiasts in the ~15 lakh bracket.

Beautiful, but not as stunning as Octavia. I was hoping for a price announcement too. Fingers crossed.
