  • Second SKODA model for the Indian market as part of the INDIA 2 project.0
  • The elegant sedan is characterized by an emotional design language, balanced proportions and a coupe-like silhouette
  • Official presentation of the new SKODA SLAVIA in November 2021

Mlada Boleslav/Pune – SKODA AUTO is giving a first impression of the new SLAVIA for the Indian market with two official design sketches. The second new model within the INDIA 2 project.0 after the SUV KUSHAQ presented at the beginning of 2021 is a classic notchback sedan for the A0 segment, which is very popular in India. The SLAVIA is also based on the MQB-A0-IN version of the modular transverse matrix from the Volkswagen Group that SKODA AUTO specially adapted for India and is manufactured locally in Pune. The official presentation will take place in November 2021.

The first of the two design sketches shows the front and side lines of the SLAVIA. The name is reminiscent of the beginnings of the company and the first bicycles sold by the founding fathers Vaclav Laurin and Vaclav Klement from 1896 in Mlada Boleslav. You can see a flat front with a wide, hexagonal SKODA grille that comes close to narrow, sharply cut headlights with an L-shaped daytime running light strip. The coupe-like silhouette of the vehicle and a long wheelbase can also be seen, and there is a distinctive badge with SKODA lettering on the front fenders.

The second sketch shows the rear of the new SKODA SLAVIA. The roof line of the notchback sedan slopes gently towards the rear and flows elegantly into the trunk lid. In addition to the SKODA lettering in individual letters, the visual impression is also characterized by the rear apron with a chrome strip. In addition, side reflectors emphasize the width of the vehicle. The rear lights with the SKODA-typical C light pattern are divided into two and reach into the tailgate.

Technically, the SKODA SLAVIA is based on the locally developed and produced MQB-A0-IN platform, which is already designed for the new, stricter safety and emissions regulations in India. As with the already successfully launched SKODA KUSHAQ, the new sedan was also developed at the SKODA AUTO Volkswagen India Technology Center in Pune. Overall, the automobile manufacturer achieves localization of up to 95 percent in production.
