After months of anticipation, the Czech carmaker has finally launched the Skoda Slavia sedan in India. Only the 1.0 TSI-powered models have been announced so far, with pricing starting at Rs 10.69 lakh and rising to Rs 15.39 lakh (ex-showroom, India) for the top-spec model. Prices for the other versions will be announced later. According to the company, the cost of the more powerful 1.5 TSI variant will be disclosed on March 3. According to the company, Skoda has also revealed that test drives and delivery of the Slavia 1.0 TSI will begin as early as today.

According to the company, the exterior design is similar to that of other Skoda sedans but with an improved proportionality that creates a more sleek and elegant look. The chrome touches are still there, which should appeal to consumers looking for a little more shine. The interior is incredibly comfortable and spacious, with roomy legroom for rear passengers and ample headroom for taller people. And don’t worry about getting too hot or cold—the climate control system keeps the cabin at a comfortable temperature no matter what the weather outside is like.
