Skoda continues to stir up interest in the new compact sedan Slavia, which will replace the state-owned Rapid, which has been on the Indian market for 10 years. Previously, the brand published design sketches with the exterior of the novelty, and now it has declassified the salon in the same way. As with the outside, there were no surprises inside: judging by the teaser sketch, the Slavia’s interior almost completely copies the interior of the new Fabia, with the exception of some minor details.

Inside the Slavia, you can see the same dashboard architecture as the current Skoda Fabia, the same copper accents and round air vents. Slavia is likely to share the virtual dashboard and display-tablet of the multimedia system with a diagonal of up to 10 inches with Fabia.

In addition, the novelty will get a two-spoke steering wheel, which is standard for most models of the Czech brand. Differences from the Fabia can be seen in the slightly modified design of the door cards and the Skoda lettering instead of Fabia on the “tidy” frame. In addition, Slavia got an extra storage compartment at the top of the front panel.

India’s successor to Rapid is expected to be built on the MQB-A0-IN platform designed specifically for local budget models. The sedan, named after Laurin & Klement’s late 19th century bicycle, will be assembled at 95% localization.

The engine range will include two gasoline engines: a liter TSI with 115 horsepower and a 1.5-liter four, developing 150 horsepower. By default, both are aggregated with a six-speed “mechanics”, and for a surcharge in a pair of a more powerful motor, you can choose a self-range “robot” with two clutches.

The premiere of the Skoda Slavia is scheduled for November 18, 2021.

    Although it is definitely an unfinished replica, I would be interested in contact details, anyway. Maybe this could be an interesting project.
