Skoda Slavia 1.0L TSI petrol is retailed across Active, Ambition and Style trims and comes with the option of two transmissions in India

Skoda has today announced the prices of the 1.10-litre petrol engine equipped variants of the Slavia while the 1.5-litre petrol variant’s prices will be out on March 3. The Czech Republican automaker has priced the midsize sedan at Rs. 10.69 lakh for the Active entry-level trim and it goes all the way up to Rs. 15.39 lakh for the Style range-topping trim with sunroof and an automatic gearbox.

The Skoda Slavia competes against Honda City, Hyundai Verna and Maruti Suzuki Ciaz. The segment will see the arrival of Slavia’s cousin, the VW Virtus, in the coming months while the rebadged Ciaz known as Toyota Belta may also be launched in the near future. The Honda City leads the way in the segment over a long period of time and is priced between Rs. 11.25 lakh and Rs. 15.21 lakh (ex-showroom).

The base price of the Skoda Slavia is certainly competitive whereas its other rivals such as the Hyundai Verna and Maruti Suzuki Ciaz cost Rs. 9.32-15.36 lakh and Rs. 8.67-11.66 lakh respectively (ex-showroom). Both Maruti Ciaz and Hyundai Verna can be bought in petrol and diesel engines but the Slavia gets only a pair of petrol engines.

The architecture will be used on the upcoming Volkswagen Virtus as it will have plenty in common with the Slavia.

As for the performance, the 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbocharged TSI petrol engine produces a maximum power output of 115 PS and 175 Nm of peak torque. The powertrain is linked with a six-speed manual transmission as standard while a six-speed torque converter automatic is optional.
