Commenting on the launch of the Skoda Slavia 1.0L TSI, Zac Hollis, Brand Director for Skoda, said, “The Slavia 1.0 TSI is not only about remarkable value on the price chart. We have also engineered this sedan with a sharp focus on the cost of ownership and maintenance. It makes the SLAVIA a complete product that shines not just in the showroom or the road, but also as an overall ownership experience. Along with KUSHAQ, the all-new Slavia will be a volume driver for us, as we look at significantly growing the Skoda brand in India.”
