Czech automaker Skoda is all set to launch the Rapid’s successor model, the Slavia, on 28th February 2022. However, it is worth noting that the brand will only declare the prices of 1.0-liter variants on this day, while the asking rates for the 1.5-litre trims will be revealed on March 3. This is a good marketing strategy to keep the product in the headlines.

Interested customers can pre-book the mid-size sedan for a token amount of Rs 11,000, while its deliveries will begin soon after its launch. And since the Slavia started reaching dealerships, the test drives are likely to start in the coming weeks.
