Skoda will launch a new compact sedan Slavia.

But it is this model that Russian motorists will not get — the Skoda Slavia budget sedan is intended only for the Indian market.

Skoda Slavia is built on a platform from the Skoda Kushaq crossover, on which modern Volkswagen Polo and Skoda Scala are also based.

The premiere of the new sedan will take place in December this year. Unfortunately, the MQB-A0 platform is not localized in our country, and selling imported cars in the budget segment in Russia is now unprofitable. However, they are not planned to be implemented in Europe either.
