Around two years ago, Suzuki Motor Corporation and Toyota Motor Corporation signed an agreement for a capital alliance to establish and promote long-term partnership in new fields including electric vehicle (EV) and autonomous driving technology.

Both automakers will also co-develop multiple new products under this joint venture including electric cars.

Toyota and Maruti Suzuki are said to be working on a midsize SUV for launch later this year. It will compete against Hyndai Creta, Kia Seltos, Skoda Kushaq, Tata Nexon and MG Astor in the highly competitive segment.

Maruti Suzuki has codenamed the electric SUV, YY8. Toyota will also sell its version of the SUV but it will have its own design.

Skoda Slavia

Skoda Slavia comes from the same platform of Kushaq and shares the same engine, gearbox and lot of other features.

Slavia is only available in its petrol version and the mileage claimed by ARAI is 18.07 to 19.47 kmpl.

My prediction on slavia about its success is high as it follows the same engine and features of kushaq that turned out to be a grand success already.

Slavia is a good alternative for Honda City, Hyundai Verna and Maruti Suzuki Ciaz.

Notable Features of Slavia over its rivals

  • Design : The new SKODA SLAVIA is a testament to sleek and beautiful design. Slavia’s bold hexagonal SKODA chrome grille, LED Headlights with L-shaped DRLs & C shaped split LED tail lamps bring the attitude.
