Skoda Slavia Anniversary Edition: Details
The Slavia Anniversary Edition arrives as the Slavia completes its one year in India since its launch in March 2022. This new edition benefits from a new Lava Blue paint job that is offered with the other Skoda models, such as the Kodiaq. Additionally, the special edition of the saloon features 'Anniversary Edition' stickers on the C-pillar, a hexagonal-shaped grille with chrome slats, scuff plates with Anniversary Edition lettering, and chrome garnish on the doors.
On the inside, it comes with Anniversary Edition cushion pillows, an Anniversary Edition badge on the steering wheel, aluminium pedals, and special mats. On top of that, Skoda has also given the 10-inch touchscreen infotainment paired with a 380-watt sound system.
Powering the Slavia Anniversary Edition is a 1.5-litre, four-cylinder, turbocharged petrol engine producing 150PS and 250Nm of torque. It comes mated to a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. This motor also complies with RDE emission norms and can run on E20 fuel.

In addition, the special edition of the SUV comes equipped with 'Edition' lettering badges on the B-pillar, puddle lamps in all four doors, cushion pillows and textile mats with 'Edition' lettering, lower chrome garnish on the door, and chrome finish on the grille.
The Kushaq Lava Blue Edition also comes powered by the same 1.5-litre, four-cylinder, turbocharged petrol engine that generates 150PS and 250Nm of torque as the Slaiva Anniversary Edition.
