The interior of the spied Skoda Slavia has a dual tone theme and should feature plentiful equipment
The upcoming Skoda Slavia’s interior has been spied as the Czech carmaker continues to test the C-segment sedan on Indian roads.
This completely camouflaged example has a dual tone (Black and Beige) interior, and, the general layout of the dashboard seems similar to that of the Skoda Kushaq.
Although we cannot pick out the exact details, due to the car still being under development, it is clear that at least the top-spec model will get Skoda’s 2-spoke steering wheel, while the side air vents are circular in shape.
Underpinned by the MQB-A0-IN architecture, on which the Kushaq is also based, the Slavia, it is stated, would get the same wheelbase (2651 mm) as the compact SUV.
With that being the case, it would not be surprising to see the C-segment sedan get an almost similar list of features which would be available on the soon-to-be launched Kushaq.
This should include 2 different touchscreen options, smartphone connectivity, wireless device charging, ambient lighting, electric sunroof, auto-dimming IRVM, among several others.
According to the narrator of the video linked above, the sedan will come with a capacious 530-litre boot and although the Skoda Slavia interior spied video does not show the rear bench seat, due to the fairly large wheelbase, there should be enough legroom for occupants.
On the outside, the Slavia looks similar in size to the Volkswagen Virtus, but sports the Czech brand’s own styling. it has the recognisable Skoda grille, and will come with automatic LED headlamps and LED tail lights.
Engine options that the car will come with will include a 1.0-litre TSI (115 PS and 175 Nm) and 1.5-litre TSI (150 PS and 250 Nm) petrol units, while gearbox options will include 6-speed manual, 6-speed auto and 7-speed DSG.
Expected to be slotted above the the Rapid and below the recently launched fourth-generation Octavia in Skoda’s portfolio, the Slavia might cost between Rs. 10-16 lakhs (ex-showroom) when launched later this year or early next year.
