Skoda Auto India has discreetly made changes to the Slavia line-up. The company has hiked prices across variants and temporarily discontinued a colour option of the model. Last month, the carmaker confirmed an update for downsizing the size of the touchscreen infotainment system, details of which are available here.
In terms of pricing, the new Skoda Slavia is now dearer by up to Rs 60,000. The latter is applicable for the Style 1.5 trims, while the Style 1.0 trims witness a hike of Rs 40,000. Meanwhile, the Active and Ambition trims of the model will now cost Rs 30,000 more than the outgoing prices.
Coming to the colour options, the Skoda Slavia will not be available with the Carbon Steel colour until production for this paintjob resumes in November. The model continues to be offered in four colours, including Crystal Blue, Tornado Red, Brilliant Silver, and Candy White.
In terms of powertrains, the Skoda Slavia gets a 1.0-litre, three-cylinder, TSI petrol engine and a 1.5-litre, four-cylinder, TSI petrol engine. Transmission options include a six-speed manual unit, a six-speed torque converter automatic unit, and a seven-speed DCT unit. We have driven the Slavia, and to read our review, click here.
