Skoda launches Slavia anniversary edition and Kushaq Lava Blue edition

To celebrate the one-year anniversary of its new mid-size sedan, the Slavia, Škoda Auto has launched the all-new Slavia Anniversary Edition at a price of Rs 17,27,999. The company has also launched a new variant of its mid-size SUV, Kushaq, called the Kushaq Lava Blue Edition at Rs 17,99,000.

With this special edition, the sedan debuts a new Lava Blue exterior hue, a hexagonal front grille with chrome ribs, lower chrome garnish, and an Anniversary Edition badge on the steering and C-pillar. Meanwhile, the Kushaq Lava Blue Edition features a front grille with a chrome finish, puddle lamps, lower chrome garnish, and plush edition cushion pillows. 

Mechanically, both the sedan and SUV are powered by a 1.5-litre turbo engine that produces 148bhp and 250Nm of torque. The transmission duties are handled by a six-speed manual or a seven-speed DSG gearbox. The engine is now compatible with E20 fuel and BS6 Phase 2 emission norms. 

Commenting on the launch of the new vehicles, Petr Šolc, Brand Director, Škoda Auto India, stated, “We continue with our product offensive strategy with all-new editions of the Kushaq and Slavia, which are instrumental in our growth ambitions in India. Since their introduction, both of our INDIA 2.0 cars have set new benchmarks in safety, and we are leading the class when it comes to safety in India. Together with our no-compromise safety strategy, the cars stand out for their driving dynamics and design.”

“Keeping our product range fresh and contemporary, in line with customer preferences, plays a pivotal role in our path towards growing the Škoda brand in 2023 and onwards. And these new product actions on the Kushaq and Slavia are a step in that direction, providing further value and choice to our customers and fans. We will be bringing new special editions and product refreshments to the market on a regular basis and continue with our growth momentum,” he added.
