Skoda Slavia Anniversary Edition and Kushaq Lava Blue Edition launched
Skoda Auto India confirmed in 2022 that they will bring special editions of the Kushaq and Slavia. Now, the brand has launched the Slavia Anniversary Edition and Kushaq Lava Blue Edition in the Indian market. Both vehicles will be sold only with the 1.5-litre TSI petrol engine. The Slavia Anniversary Edition costs ₹17.28 lakh for the manual gearbox while the automatic transmission is priced at ₹18.68 lakh. Then there is the Kushaq Lava Blue Edition which costs ₹17.99 lakh for the manual gearbox and ₹19.19 lakh for the automatic transmission.
The Lava Blue shade is Škoda’s extremely popular option long available with the Octavia and Superb sedans and the Kodiaq. This will be the first time that Škoda’s India 2.0 cars get this signature shade. The Slavia Anniversary Edition sits above the top-of-the-line Style variant and is equipped with all of the Style’s comfort and safety features with added embellishments.
The changes continue inside where the Slavia gets an ‘Anniversary Edition’ scuff plate along with an Anniversary Edition badge on the steering wheel. There are Aluminum pedals as well and the dashboard is dominated by a 25.4 cm infotainment system with ŠKODA Play Apps and Wireless SmartLink. The system is also bundled with a subwoofer and 380-watt audio system.
