Semiconductor Crisis: Skoda Kushaq and Slavia To Now Come With Smaller Touchscreen Infotainment System

Once again, Skoda Auto is being affected by the ongoing global semi-conductorr crisis. Earlier, the Czech carmaker ditched the auto-folding ORVM feature from its Kushaq SUV, and now it is going to downsize the touchscreen infotainment from 10 to 8-inches in the Slavia and Kushaq.

Talking to a media agency, Skoda India said, “In light of the contisemi-conductoructor shortage, we have made some minor updates to the equipment in our INDIA 2.0 cars w.e.f. 1st June onwards, so that our customers face no undue delays in taking delivery of their ŠKODA. Customers will be appraised of the feature updates by their dealers. We at ŠKODA AUTO India thank you for choosing a ŠKODA and for standing by us in these times of supply shortages. Irrespective of the global situation, we shall always endeavor to provide the best buying and ownership experience with a ŠKODA.”

For those who aren’t aware, the 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system was offered from the mid-spec Ambition trim in both the Skoda Slavia sedan and Kushaq SUV. It was provided with features like connected car tech, wireless Apple Carplay and Android Auto. As of now, it is unclear if the smaller infotainment unit will also be equipped with these features. We expect the brand to borrow the new infotainment system from its global lineup. Skoda could also offer some rebate to customers for the downsizing of the infotainment system.

Skoda is yet to reveal that when they will roll back the feature in their above-mentioned offerings.
