– Slavia gets eight inch colorful digital cluster
– Could be introduced in the coming months
Earlier this week, Skoda Auto India unveiled the new Slavia midsize sedan. Based on the same MQB A0 IN platform as the Kushaq, the Slavia gets almost the same feature list as its SUV sibling. However, the Slavia benefits from a fully digital instrument cluster, which the Kushaq currently lacks.
Now, with a timely update, we expect the colorful eight-inch digital cluster to make its way into high-end variants of the Kushaq as well. A similar-looking instrument cluster can also be seen on Kushaq’s DNA cousin, the recently launched Volkswagen Taigun. On top of that, recently the Style AT trim of the Kushaq was fitted with a tire pressure monitoring system and six airbags; details of which can be read here.
