Czech luxury car maker Skoda is reportedly preparing to launch the new 2022 Slavia mid-size premium sedan in the Indian market next month. 

Hindustan Times Auto reports that the company has announced that the cover of the new Slavia sedan will be officially unveiled on November 18, 2021. 

Skoda Slavia is based on the MQB-A0-IN platform, which shares all-new generation Skoda and Volkswagen cars with the Kushak and Tiguan SUVs. Slavia is mainly seen as the successor to Skoda's popular sedan Rapid. It is reported that Slavia will get two TSI engines. It also comes with a number of safety features, including six airbags. The Skoda Slavia is 4,541 mm long, 1,752 mm wide, and 1,487 mm high. The sedan arrives with a 2,651mm wheelbase. 

The Czech carmaker has not revealed in addition details about the new Slavia. However, it is reported that it will be powered by two TSI petrol engines that will power the recently launched Skoda Kushak SUV. The 1.0-liter three-cylinder TSI engine can produce 113 hp. The 1.5-liter four-cylinder TSI can produce 148 hp. The transmission will be Skoda's six-speed manual gearbox. There are also reports that the 1.0-liter TSI will be available with a six-speed automatic transmission or the 1.5-liter variant with a seven-speed DSG gearbox. 

The vehicle may also come with a 1.5-liter engine variant with active cylinder technology. The technology aims to increase the fuel efficiency of the sedan by closing the two cylinders when the engine load is low. The sedan is expected to borrow interior elements and features from the Skoda Kushak. It comes with a factory-fitted electric sunroof, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a large touchscreen infotainment system with mirror link connectivity, automatic AC, digital instrument console, and multi-function steering wheel.
