The rear cabin is very much suitable for average height passengers

The rear cabin has now gone very much spacious with ample amount of headroom and legroom on the offer. Under thigh support doesn't feel lagging. A person would surely choose the Slavia over Verna if he or she wants to be chauffer driven. Seats are also now very much comfortable due to the cushioning offered to ensure better comfort.

Skoda Slavia Performance

There is no turbocharged engine that can honestly fair against a TSI motor. Both the 1-liter TSI and the 1.5-liter TSI petrol engines have great performance on the offer. If one needs full energetic driving then anyday its the 1.5-liter petrol engine that has the best performance. A true driving is something you get when you have a stick shifting manual gearbox and the Slavia has it standard. If you are tired in cities then surely go DSG as that just has very fast shifts.

Skoda Slavia safety

A lot would be thinking if Skoda comprised on build quality of Slavia and the answer is that there is no compromise. Build quality is still what you expect from German engineering and safety features like 6 airbags and other safety goodies are there on offer. The build of the car is what you will understand when you close and open door and a thud makes ringer to your years.
