The Czech carmaker has not revealed much details about the new Slavia, However, it has confirmed that it will be powered by two TSI petrol engines, the same that also power the recently-launched Skoda Kushaq SUV. The 1.0-litre three cylinder TSI engine is capable of producing 113 hp of power. The 1.5-litre four-cylinder TSI has an output of 148 hp. The transmission job is handled by Skoda's six-speed manual gearbox, besides option to pick a six-speed automatic transmission in the 1.0-litre TSI or the seven-speed DSG gearbox in the 1.5-litre variant.
Skoda Slavia will also come with active cylinder technology (ACT) in the 1.5-litre engine variant. It aims to increase the fuel efficiency of the sedan by shutting down two cylinders when the engine load is low.
