Skoda Revamps Kushaq and Slavia Variants Along With Discounts

Skoda has taken steps to enhance the accessibility of its models, Kushaq and Slavia. This move will lead to a discount and a complete revamp of the variants available in these models. The range now starts at ₹ 10.69 lakh. What is the change? How much discount are they offering? Let's find out:

New Variant Names

Skoda has decided to rename the entire line of variants in the SUV and sedan from Active, Ambition and Style to Classic, Signature and Prestige. Along with these, the Kushaq will continue to be available in the Onyx variant, which is affordable, along with the Monte Carlo variant, which comes under the premium section. 

Refreshed Pricing

Skoda is offering a discount that applies to all the Kushaq engine and transmission options, as well as some variants of the Slavia. The discounts go up to 10% based on the chosen model, variant, engine, and transmission. The Kushaq Monte Carlo gets the maximum discount, and the base Slavia becomes even more affordable. The price change will also attract lesser insurance and registration costs, further reducing the cost of the vehicle. A table detailing the variants' prices is attached in the images. 

Users will also have a choice of exchange and corporate bonus options, special finance and insurance schemes run through Skoda's banking partners, an extended warranty, and a host of service and maintenance packages.

Sustainable Engines 

Skoda's 1.0 TSI engine recently got the E20 compliance certificate from ARAI. It has already been equipped in the new Kushaq Onyx AT, with other cars soon to join. Engines that are E20 compliant run on 20% ethanol and 80% petrol, reducing the amount of fossil fuel consumed, reducing emissions and increasing sustainability. The 1.0 TSI is the first engine in India to receive certification from a governing authority. Government policy states that it will be mandatory starting on 1st April 2025. Skoda claimed the 1.5 TSI is being tested for this, and the results will come out by Q4 2024.

Improved Customer Satisfaction 

Skoda claimed its focus is on aspects like overall cost of ownership, transparency, quicker servicing timelines, and the expanding dealer footprint to achieve customer delight. They are also offering a 4-year/100,000 km standard warranty on Kushaq and Slavia, with an option to extend it to 6 years/150,000 km, making it one of the most comprehensive warranty packages.
