MY24 Skoda Kushaq and Slavia Launched: Safety Takes Center Stage

 Skoda Auto India has launched the MY2024 Slavia and Kushaq, with prices starting at Rs. 11.64 and 11.99 lakh (ex-showroom), respectively. As a part of the update, both cars now get six airbags across the variant range.

Safety First

Notably, both cars received a five-star rating in the Global NCAP crash test (according to the updated norms) back in 2022. The addition of six airbags across all variants emphasizes the company’s elevated safety standards and special focus on customers’s protection and wellbeing.

Variants and Engine Options

The Skoda Kushaq and Slavia are offered in three variants each, namely Active, Ambition, and Style 1. Customers can choose from 1.0-liter and 1.5-liter TSI petrol engines across six-speed manual, six-speed torque converter automatic, and seven-speed DSG transmissions

Additional Features

In Q4 2023, Skoda introduced new features in the top-spec variants of the Kushaq and Slavia siblings, including electrically adjustable front seats and ambient footwell lighting. These feature updates are now being offered from the Ambition trim upwards.

Future Plans

The carmaker is currently working on a compact SUV that will be introduced in the Indian market early next year. Reports also reveal that Skoda is working on Kushaq and Slavia facelifts, set to launch sometime in 2025.
