But what all does it come with to set itself apart from the competition? Relax, here’s a list that reveals the 5 exciting things of the Skoda Slavia which will make it stand out from the crowd.

Longest wheelbase

The Skoda Slavia uses the same MQB-A0-IN platform as the Skoda Kushaq. Resultantly, it has a wheelbase of 2,651 mm, which is longer than all of its rivals. Hence, it won’t be wrong to assume that the Slavia will be rich on the interior space as well.

Most-powerful engine

Loaded with tech

The Slavia will come loaded with a long list of features, which will also include the ACT (Active Cylinder Technology) to offer better fuel economy. The system deactivates two cylinders of the engine when not required. Similarly, other features from the Kushaq are likely to be carried over to the Slavia.

Skoda Octavia-inspired styling

For the looks, Slavia will draw heavy inspiration from the Octavia. On the front, it will feature slender-looking upswept headlamps with the signature Skoda grille. Around the sides, the sloping roofline will accentuate the overall silhouette of the saloon. The rear fascia will feature wraparound tail lamps with sharp lines for the boot lid.
