2022 Skoda Slavia Revealed, Bookings Open, Deliveries In Next Quarter

Skoda today revealed the Slavia sedan to the world and opened bookings for their new sedan. The deliveries will start sometime in Q1 2022. The sedan’s specialities are its size and engine performance. It’s not quite as long as the new Honda City, but overall, it’s about as big as the City. It's also the widest car in the C-segment sedan space. According to our length-based segmentation, the Slavia is an exception in the C-segment, as it’s big enough to compete with the D-segment sedans. However, its features, engine specs and expected price makes it a suitable rival for the C-segment rivals like the Nexa Ciaz, Hyundai Verna, Toyota Yaris and Volkswagen Vento. The Slavia is sure to offer a commanding road presence.

Skoda Slavia 2022 - Engine Specs

In terms of engine specs, the Slavia will use the exact same engines as the Kushaq. That means it’ll get a 1.0L turbo petrol and a 1.5L turbo petrol engine. The smaller engine will come with a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission. The larger engine will have the option of a 6-speed manual and a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic. The 1.5L petrol engine will also offer the cylinder-deactivation technology, which cuts the fuel supply to 2 of the 4 cylinders when the vehicle is not experiencing much load.


The 1.5L turbo petrol engine makes the Slavia the most powerful car in its segment. Here’s a quick look at the engine spec comparison of the Skoda Slavia with its competition:
