Skoda Auto India Private Limited has officially announced that the new Skoda Slavia mid-size sedan will make its world premiere in India on November 18, 2021. The Skoda Slavia will be the second car from this Czech car manufacturer under the Volkswagen Group’s new India 2.0 project, the first one being the Skoda Kushaq. The Skoda Slavia will replace the Rapid in the company’s India line-up and it will share its underpinnings and mechanicals with the Kushaq.
