The ŠKODA SLAVIA is the younger sibling of the ŠKODA KUSHAQ SUV. Both cars were developed specifically for the Indian market and are tailor-made for the local customers’ requirements. While the KUSHAQ embodies the spirit of adventure, the SLAVIA combines graceful elegance with dynamism.

According to chief designer Oliver Stefani, this is mainly due to the SLAVIA’s dynamic lines, which are reminiscent of coupé cars. The car is thus original in its design, while clearly belonging to the ŠKODA family. 

“There are typical elements such as the bonnet ridge, the logo above the wide chrome radiator grille with its upright vertical ribs, and the LED headlights connected to the bonnet,” Stefani says, listing some of the car’s distinctive design features. 

The SLAVIA is original, spacious and dynamic inside as well. In the interior, the designers opted for strong horizontal lines to enhance the impression of space, as well as two-tone upholstery and cladding. “We offer this in all trims, Active, Ambition and Style. It looks dynamic and elegant at the same time,” says Stefani.
