The Slavia’s segment rivals include the Honda City, Maruti Suzuki Ciaz and the Hyundai Verna.

Skoda recently revealed its latest mid-size sedan, the Slavia, for the Indian market. While pre-bookings are now open, the car will go on sale early next year. The carmaker has even set ambitious targets for the new sedan.

Zac Hollis, Skoda’s brand director has stated that the company aims to sell 2,500-3,000 units per month in the long term. This means, the company clearly has the segment leader Honda City, in its sights. If you look at the average City sales for the last 6 months, Honda has sold over 2,900 units.

The Slavia’s other segment rivals include the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz and the Hyundai Verna. On average, Hyundai has sold around 1,800 Verna models in the last 6 months, while the Ciaz clocked just 1,100 units.

Skoda has also confirmed that it will be looking at other volume segments below the Slavia and the best body style to bring to the market.
