Škoda previews India-targeted Slavia with design sketches

Škoda has revealed the preview sketches of the Slavia, a classic sedan designed for the Indian market with a coupe-like silhouette.


The second new model from the INDIA 2.0 project follows the Kushaq SUV introduced in early 2021 and is a classic notchback saloon for the A0 segment, a very popular category in India.

The Slavia is likewise produced locally in Pune and based on the MQB-A0-IN version of the Volkswagen Group’s Modular Transverse Toolkit, which has been specifically adapted by Škoda for the Indian market. The official presentation will take place in November 2021.

The first of the two design sketches features the SLAVIA’s front and silhouette. The model’s name evokes the early days of the company and the first bicycles sold in Mladá Boleslav from 1896 by founding fathers Václav Laurin and Václav Klement.

The image shows the car’s low front section, including a wide, hexagonal ŠKODA grille extending all the way to slender, sharply defined headlights that feature an L-shaped daytime running light strip. Also visible are the coupé-style silhouette and long wheelbase as well as a distinctive badge with the ŠKODA wordmark on the front wings.

The notchback sedan’s roofline slopes gently towards the rear, where it merges  smoothly into the trunk lid. Adding further touches to the model’s looks are the Škoda wordmark in block letters and a rear apron with a chrome strip. In addition, reflectors on either side emphasise the vehicle’s width. Featuring the signature C-shaped Škoda lights design, the tail lights are divided into two parts and extend into the boot lid.

In terms of engineering, the Slavia is based on the locally developed and produced MQB A0-IN platform, already designed to meet India’s new, stricter safety and emissions specifications. For its production, the car maker will source up to 95 per cent of components from local Indian suppliers.
