Here's How the SKODA SLAVIA Offers A Blend Of Performance And World Class Safety Standards
The Slavia already boasts of a strong build quality and robust safety package just like its ŠKODA lineage
Not so long ago, fuel efficiency was the primary buying criterion behind a car purchase decision. Now though, more conscious and aware buyers prioritise safety as one of the key parameters. This segment is looking for feature packed and powerful grin-generators which will also keep their family safe. ŠKODA is one such brand, which we know, excels in these traits. The Czech carmaker’s latest heart-throbbing sedan, the SLAVIA, ticks all the right boxes. Here’s how it maintains its high safety standards with a fun to drive DNA:
Built On Strong Foundations
The ŠKODA SLAVIA is underpinned by the highly acclaimed MQB-A0-IN platform, which is specifically designed for India. Despite this platform being localised for the country, ŠKODA hasn’t compromised on the safety front. Also, unlike other carmakers, ŠKODA delivers the same safety standards for India as they do for the world.
The KUSHAQ is the safest family car of India, securing five-star ratings for adult as well as child occupants’ protection. What’s important here is that it has earned these ratings in the updated Global NCAP crash tests, which also include side impact, pedestrian safety, and electronic stability control tests. This shows how the Czech carmaker has exceeded expectations related to safety, with tank-like build quality.
The SLAVIA also shares the same platform and based on that; the SLAVIA should also share the stage with the KUSHAQ for the safest family car of India very soon!
Packed With Standard Safety Features
ŠKODA has got you covered with several active and passive safety features, right from the base variant. Standard safety features include electronic stability control, traction control system, dual front airbags, multi-collision braking, motor slip regulation, rollover protection, and tyre pressure monitoring system. When launched, it was one of the few cars with ESC and traction control as standard, which proved that the SLAVIA wants you to have an engaging drive, while also caring for your safety. Even three-point seat belts for all seats and ISOFIX child seat mounts are standard, which is still a rarity in mass-market cars in India.
The safety package gets a furthers boost with the higher variants, which feature six airbags, a rear parking camera, auto-dimming interior rear view mirror, rain-sensing wipers, and hill hold assist.
Handles Like A SKODA
While ŠKODA cars are known for their engaging performance and strong build quality, they also excel at being great handling cars. Like its siblings, the ŠKODA SLAVIA is also dynamically superior to drive and handle. With excellent handling, the SLAVIA maintains its excellent grip, thanks to the electronic differential lock, and high-speed stability, which will keep you confident at all times. Importantly, the SLAVIA keeps you connected with the car and the road around high-speed curves without throwing up nasty surprises. With this level of confidence from active safety features and a chassis that enables superlative handling, this sedan might just help its drivers avoid any accidents in the first place itself.
Its rigid body structure and stellar crash-compliant engineering is already a message that a 5-star rating is most likely on the way. With these highlights, the SLAVIA continues to maintain its legacy of being a great all-rounder and well-engineered car, just like the KUSHAQ, KODIAQ, OCTAVIA, and the SUPERB.
