Re: Skoda Slavia Review

Question to fellow Slavia owners with the 8” touch screen unit, has anyone explored the aftermarket wireless Apple Carplay / Android Auto adapters available in Flipkart and Amazon ?

I am looking to get one but really confused regarding the choices available. Amazon has Carlinkit, Ottocast and WQQBFF while Flipkart just has one choice called Etzin. All are priced between INR 6-9k.

Any insights would be very helpful !

Re: Skoda Slavia Review

Anyone took the Skoda service packs ? How's the feedback and do you recommend taking it ?

Re: Skoda Slavia Review

The update is that discounts on the MY24 batches of Slavia has significantly reduced. The MY24 cars have the below features across variants and only 50-80k discounts at present.

The car is now costing me almost a lac more

The good part is that they have not discontinued the Lava Blue colour.

I should be able to secure the delivery of the car before this month end.

Are you getting the MY23 in Lava Blue color? What is the discount available on the Lava blue color. I have almost finalized one from the remaining Stock of MY23, however the dealer is adamant on not giving good discount on the Lava blue color. For other colors though the discount is significantly higher.

No. I have been told that 1.5 Lava Blue has a good demand and waiting period. I am surprised that you are getting one from the old batches if you are talking about 1.5 DSG. If I may ask, which dealer are you booking the car (or have booked) from and what sort of discounts are they offering? If you are not getting a good discount on a MY23 car, might as well look at the MY24 one with these additional features. I am just hoping they have sorted the small niggles of the previous cars related to AC, rattling noise or the window up/down issue at the front in some of the cars.

Though MY23 cars will also get revised pricing but should ideally get a higher discount in my opinion.

I had almost finalized the purchase of the car when I heard about the upcoming MY24 car with upgraded features. My dealer is now willing to give me a max of 50k discount on the Style 1.0 AT variant. He did give me the option to book one of the last MY23 cars and offered much higher discounts and complimentary SMP, which works out to over a lakh in difference.

Iím planning to go ahead with the MY24 car anyway, mainly for the 10Ē infotainment, subwoofer and electric seat adjustment. Also because it seems it may not be possible to get an MY23 car anymore, unless itís already in their stockyard. Not sure how true this last part is though!

I haven't yet booked the car, still exploring with all Dealers in Mumbai region. I was looking to pick up the 1.0AT Style preferably in Lava Blue. There are inventories of the MY23 available in other than Lava blue color at discounts more than 1.5L whereas for the Lava blue haven't been able to locate any inventory but all dealers have indicated that the discount will not be more than 1Lac. The MY23 in Lava blue color will still be a good deal for me as it will only miss out on the Powered Seats and it isn't a big dealbreaker for me.

Also MY23 Cars will not come under the revised pricing and needs to dealt at the old pricing. It is the practice of some dealers to show it under the revised pricing and eventually give the feeling of bigger discounts. You should always negotiate on the old on-road pricing for MY23 Models

Yup you are right. Unless they have it in stock, they won't be able to offer you the MY23 batch. Any new bookings will be that if the MY24.

The MY23 1.5 Lava Blue Edition had the 10 inch infotainment system and the subwoofer, the only thing extra in the MY24 variant is the footwell lights and powered seats. Additional 1 lac for the said features is not justified.

What's MY23 & MY24? My understanding is MY=Manufacturing year, however, we're still in 2023. What am I missing?

If you can share, which dealer offered over 1L discount and on which variant?

I got this from Raja Skoda for the Style 1.0 1.0 AT variant. The discounts included corporate, cash, festive and dealer discounts. Add the complimentary SMP which itself is worth ~35k and the effective discounts worked out to a bit over 1L.

A friend of mine was offered ~69k in discounts on the 1.5 Ambition MT variant.

Re: Skoda Slavia Review

Hello folks, need quick help - can I expect more offers in December given dealers would want to clear 2023 manufactured cars? I am looking to book a slavia but can wait till year end if I can get better offers. Most of my time in November would anyway be spent in hometown due to Diwali.

Yes, Year end you will ideally get better deals than at present. You may get a better discount on MY24 models as well.

Re: Skoda Slavia Review

Hi all. Iíve found this on the Skoda website. It mentions that SMP is complimentary. Any idea if this is applicable for all variants or it is up to dealer discretion somehow? Considering very less discounts on the MY24 model, at least complimentary SMP would make it a bit more lucrative.
