Which Variant Of The 2022 Skoda Slavia Petrol Should You Book?

Based on the features, we think the base Active variant of the Skoda Slavia will suit buyers, who are more interested in a big sedan and might mostly use rear seats. It gets a decent number of features for the price and segment.

The Ambition variant looks like a good balance of good-to-have and must-have features. This variant will meet the needs of most Slavia buyers. The top, Style variant with the 1.0L turbo petrol engine might have a decent ex-showroom price. However, we expect the 1.5L turbo petrol to carry a modest premium. So, for the explosive performance of the 1.5L turbo petrol, we will suggest booking the Style 1.5L instead of the 1.0L. If the prices are not as per your budget or expectations, then you can downgrade with the dealer.

Among the automatic transmission variants of the Slavia, the Ambition variant is a suitable one for most buyers. If you want all the bells and whistles, then instead of the Style 1.0L TC automatic, we’ll recommend getting the 1.5L DCT automatic. The reason is the same as applicable for manual transmission variants. We are expecting Skoda to price the 1.5L Style quite aggressively over the 1.0L Style variant. For the segment-best performance, you can jump to the larger engine without compromising on the mileage or fuel-efficiency.

What Are The Engine Specifications Of The Skoda Slavia Petrol?

The 2022 Skoda Slavia will come with 2 petrol engine options - a 1.0L turbo petrol and a 1.5L turbo petrol. Both of these engines will get a 6-speed manual transmission option. The smaller petrol engine will have the option of a 6-speed torque converter automatic while the larger petrol engine will have a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

The 1.0L petrol engine is small in displacement but its power output of 115PS is on par with the segment rivals. Since it’s a turbocharged engine, its torque output of 178Nm is higher than all of the normal petrol engines even though they have larger displacements. This engine is available with a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission.

The Slavia also has a larger 1.5L turbo petrol engine, which blows every other car out of the water with 150PS of power and 250Nm of torque. The Slavia 1.5L turbo will come with a 6-speed manual and a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

The mileage of fuel efficiency details of the 2022 Slavia petrol aren’t available right now. However, the Kushaq also gets the same engine and transmission options. Using those figures as the baseline, we expect the Slavia 1.0L to give around 18.0kmpl with the 1.0L manual and 16.0kmpl with the 1.0L automatic. Similarly, the Slavia 1.5L manual could offer around 18.0kmpl regardless of which transmission option you choose.

In this regard, the Slavia 1.5L makes good sense as it offers a mileage figure similar to the 1.0L along with better performance. With the automatic, the 1.5L makes even more sense as the old-school torque converter automatic has a lower mileage figure than the 1.5L DCT automatic.

What Are The Dimensions Of The 2022 Skoda Slavia?

The 2022 Skoda Slavia is a big car. It’s only 8mm shorter than the new City and is the second-longest car in the C-segment sedan space. The Slavia is the widest car in the class with the longest wheelbase and the largest boot.

If you are buying an SUV only because you need better ground clearance, then the Slavia can also meet that requirement. The Slavia has a 179mm ground clearance, which is only 1mm less than that of the XUV300 and significantly better than its C-segment sedan peers.
