Skoda has just unveiled its latest sedan offering, the Skoda Slavia and it will be Skoda's replacement for the now discontinued Skoda Rapid.
The Skoda Slavia will be offered with the 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine with 115PS and 175 Nm. With a six-speed manual for both engine options, the six-speed torque converter from the Rapid will be paired with this engine. The 1.5-litre turbo-petrol is the same unit from the Kushaq that makes 150PS/250 Nm and pairs with a seven-speed DCT and should come with the higher-spec versions. The larger engine will continue to offer its cylinder deactivation tech.
There will be up to six airbags on offer with the Skoda Slavia. Base versions will get 2 airbags with standard ESC and ABS while higher-spec versions of the sedan will come fitted with front side airbags and head curtain airbags.
