    Skoda has hiked the prices of its midsize sedan, the Slavia, by up to Rs 60,000. This is the first price increase of the Honda City-rivalling sedan since its launch in February 2022. The Slavia now starts from Rs 10.99 lakh for the base 1.0 TSI manual Active variant, going all the way up to Rs 18.39 lakh for the range-topping 1.5 TSI DCT Style variant.

    • Prices for the 1.0 TSI variants up by Rs 40,000
    • 1.5 TSI variants see a price hike of Rs 60,000
    • Top-spec Slavia the second most expensive car in its segment

    The Slavia is available in three trims and four powertrain options. The prices of the Active and Ambition variants have gone up by Rs 30,000. Meanwhile, the 1.0-litre Style variant sees a price bump of Rs 40,000. The 1.5-litre variant  which is available only in the top-end Style trim  is now more expensive by Rs 60,000.

    Style 1.5 TSI ATRs 18.39 lakhRs 17.79 lakhRs 60,000

    Along with the price hike comes a minor equipment update. Given the ongoing chip shortage, Skoda has replaced the 10-inch infotainment screen on the Slavia as well as the Kushaq with an 8.0-inch unit. The new unit misses out on wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

    Last month, Skoda had also raised the prices of the Kushaq SUV by up to Rs 70,000.

    Skoda Slavia rivals and positioning 

    Even before this price hike, the Slavia was one of the more expensive cars in the segment that consists of sedans like the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, Hyundai Verna and Honda City. In fact, in its top-spec avatar, the Slavia is the second most expensive car after the recently launched Honda City Hybrid which retails for Rs 19.49 lakh.

    This hike also pushes the prices of the Slavia closer to the Kushaq, which is the more popular choice in Skoda’s India portfolio. Moreover, Volkswagen is all set to launch the Virtus  a sister model to the Slavia  on June 9. It would be interesting to see how Volkswagen manages to price it and if it can undercut the Skoda Slavia.
