A similar teaser was also released by Skoda for the Kushaq SUV. The company had also put up a design competition some time back for the design of the Skoda Slavia. The company has not yet shared much information related to this upcoming sedan, but looking at its overall body shape, we can definitely make some ideas. The Slavia will get a sporty air dam under Skoda's iconic grille and new LED headlamps on either side of the grille.

The Slavia car will be bigger than the Rapid and will have similar design styling to the Octavia and Superb. In the teaser image, the sedan is shown in black alloy wheels and its ground clearance also seems to be quite high. The suspension setup seems to have been tuned for the Indian roads.
