Skoda Slavia 1.5 TSI: what’s different over the 1.0 TSI

The main change lies under the hood as this version of the Slavia uses the more powerful 1.5-litre, four-cylinder, TSI turbo-petrol engine that puts out 150hp and 250Nm (same as the unit in the Kushaq). This engine can be had with either a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed DCT automatic gearbox. 

Visually, there is no change over the 1.0 TSI model to help differentiate the variants; hence it too features a well proportioned and sleek design, with strong ties to the rest of Skoda’s sedan range. 

As mentioned above, the Skoda Slavia 1.5 TSI is only available in the range-topping Style trim. This means that it comes with all bells and whistles, including a free-standing 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support, connected car tech, digital instrument cluster automatic climate control, ventilated front seats, leatherette upholstery, a wireless charger, rear AC vents and a sunroof.

Skoda also offers a lot of safety features in this Style trim, including six airbags, ESC, an electronic differential system (EDS) and a tyre pressure monitor.

Skoda Slavia: competition check

Rivals for the new Skoda Slavia 1.5 TSI are the same as the 1.0 TSI variants: the Honda CityHyundai Verna, Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, and VW Vento – until the Virtus replaces it later this year.
