I’m not certain how good (or not so good) the Slavia—the soon-to-be-launched sedan by Skoda—seems like (as a result of I drove a closely camouflaged automotive), however it’s undoubtedly superb to drive.

The Slavia will likely be launched in 4 mechanical configurations: 1.0-litre TSI handbook and six-speed computerized transmission (115 PS), and 1.5-litre TSI handbook and seven-speed DSG transmission (150 PS). It’s going to compete with sedans similar to Honda Metropolis, Hyundai Verna and Maruti Suzuki Ciaz.

First, even the 1.0-litre unit seems highly effective sufficient for this sedan, and whereas driving it on the expressway I didn’t really feel the automotive missing energy. The handbook gearbox is slick, and even the automated seems so good that one could confuse it for a DSG.

Second, the 1.5-litre unit is kind of highly effective, a lot that, at instances, the Slavia seems like a supercar—particularly the DSG gearbox one.

In all 4 mechanical configurations, the Slavia sort of excels at experience and dealing with. In it, minimal tyre or engine noise enters the cabin, and even on sharp turns it doesn’t seem to lose its line. Seats have such a design that you could be not really feel uncomfortable even on lengthy drives. And be it a damaged stretch of highway or free gravel, the experience doesn’t flip tough. Additionally, as a result of it’s a sedan, there’s completely no physique roll.

Like within the Kushaq, the 1.5-litre engine within the Slavia will likely be provided with energetic cylinder expertise (ACT), which robotically shuts down two cylinders when the engine load is low, enhancing the gas effectivity.

The Slavia is 4,541 mm lengthy, 1,752 mm extensive and has a peak of 1,487 mm; the wheelbase measures 2,651 mm.
