Yes, it has a steep entry price, but the upside is that it's fairly well-equipped

Skoda has replaced the Rapid with the more premium Slavia, whose prices have only recently been announced. It is well-equipped, right from the base variant, with the second-highest entry pricing in its segment. Let's find out if the Slavia Active offers good value:

Variant

1-litre TSI MT

1-litre TSI AT

Active

Rs 10.7 lakh

N.A.

Ambition

Rs 12.4 lakh

Rs 13.6 lakh

Difference

Rs 1.7 lakh

 

Why consider Slavia Active?

It does a good job of covering the basics. It gets a decent safety package, a touchscreen infotainment system with smartphone compatibility, and essential conveniences such as a height-adjustable driver's seat and electrically adjustable outside rearview mirrors (ORVMs). If it fits your budget, the Slavia Active is definitely worth considering.

Here are the features on offer in this trim:

Why skip Slavia Active?

The Slavia Active could have offered a few more features, such as a rear parking camera and rear AC vents, to be a truly value-for-money package. It also lacks the choice of an automatic transmission. Sure, the Slavia is a good-looking car, but we feel the base variant misses out on certain visual elements, and that's a little bummer.
