In terms of engine details, as we expected, the Slavia will share its powertrains with the Skoda Kushaq. This means that the Slavia will get the same 1.0-liter TSI three-cylinder engine and the same 1.5-liter four-cylinder TSI engine, and both are turbocharged gasoline engines. The former develops 113 hp and 175 Nm of maximum torque, and it is mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox and an optional 6-speed automatic torque converter.
|Skoda Slavia||3-cylinder 1.0-liter TSI||4-cylinder 1.5-liter TSI|
|Shift||999 cm3||1495 cm3|
|Maximum energy||113 hp||148 hp|
|Maximum torque||175 NM||250 NM|
|Transmission||6-speed MT / 6-speed AT||MT 6 speed / DSG 7 speed|
The larger 1.5-liter engine produces 148 hp and 250 Nm of maximum torque and is mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox and a 7-speed DSG automatic transmission. In addition, as in the Kushaq, the Slavia with the 1.5 liter engine features Active Cylinder Technology (ACT) which automatically shuts off two cylinders when the engine is at cruising speed, thus improving fuel efficiency.
The Skoda Slavia will also get up to 6 airbags, which we believe will be limited to the high-end variants. The company also claims that the company has internally tested the sedan for impact resistance, under conditions more stringent than Global NCAP standards. The automaker also designed the car with pedestrian safety in mind. In addition, Skoda added that currently Indian regulatory requirements only require protection for the lower leg and head impact, while the Slavia is designed to reduce upper leg injuries as well. .
