Skoda Slavia Ambition variant in a walkaround video

Skoda’s next launch in the Indian market will be the Slavia. It is a mid-size sedan that will be replacing the Rapid. The Slavia will be positioned above the Rapid because it is a larger and more premium vehicle. The mid-size sedan is already available at the dealerships so that the customers can experience it. However, the dealerships are still not allowed to give test drives of the Slavia. Here, we have a walkaround video of the Ambition variant of the Slavia.

The Ambition variant is the mid-spec variant of the Slavia. It sits in between the Active and Style variant. The video is uploaded on YouTube by AUTOMOTIV_ MASTERS. The video starts by giving a look at the exterior of Slavia’s Ambition variant. The launch of the Slavia is expected to happen on 28th February.

Because it is the mid-spec variant, it comes with different LED Daytime Running Lamps. It gets a halogen setup and there is a fog lamp housing in the bumper with a chrome garnish. On the Style variants, there would be an LED projector setup with L-shaped LED Daytime Running Lamps. There is Skoda’s butterfly grille which will be on every variant.

On the side, there is a Skoda badging on the front fender. There are 16-inch alloy wheels that are not diamond-cut units. The tyre size measures 205/55 R16.  The ground clearance of the Slavia is 179 mm which should be enough to tackle our bad Indian roads. The turn indicators are mounted on the outside rearview mirrors and door handles are finished in chrome.

At the rear, there are split LED tail lamps with Skoda lettering on the tailgate. The boot space measures 521 litres but you can increase the boot space to 1,050 litres if you fold down the rear seats. The lights for the license plate are also LEDs. There are rear parking sensors also.  The spare tyre is a space saver. It measures 195/65 R15. There is a shark-fin antenna, high-mounted stop lamp and rear defogger.

The host also gets into the interior. The cabin is finished in a dual-tone theme. Even the rear door pads are also finished in soft-touch material. There are three adjustable headrests and a rear armrest with two cup holders. There are two USB Type-C ports to charge the mobile devices and there are also rear AC vents.

There is an analogue instrument cluster with a multi-information display, multi-function steering wheel, keyless entry, push-button to start/stop the engine, automatic climate control, cruise control, a touchscreen infotainment system, air purifier, two USB Type C charging ports, a 12V accessory socket, umbrella holder and cup holders. The glove box is quite large and also gets a cooling function.

Slavia measures 4,541 mm in length, 1,752 mm in width and is 1,487 mm tall. This makes it larger than the first generation Octavia and the widest in the segment. Slavia has a wheelbase of 2,651 mm which is almost as long as the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz.
