Skoda Slavia Active Trim – Exterior and Interior

The exterior of the base model differs from the higher versions in a few respects. One could easily spot the lack of fog lights in the front, the regular steel wheels instead of the alloys are also quite obvious, the headlights are regular halogens and not LEDs as seen on the higher variants, the rear lacks the chrome treatment under the bumper and there is also no power sunroof. These are easy giveaways when it comes to which Slavia variant one is looking at.

The differences in the interior are even more diverse. For starters, there’s no digital cockpit instrument cluster, the large touchscreen infotainment display is missing and replaced with a smaller unit, AC buttons and switches are larger without touch control , the components are not wrapped in leather but in hard plastics , there is no center armrest between the front seats, the IRVM also looks regular. Although the general layout remains the same, there are a few features missing, which is understandable in the base trim.
