Why should you consider the Slavia’s 1.5 liter engine? » MotorOctane
Skoda has taken the Indian market seriously as part of its new strategy. It recently launched the Slavia to tackle the sedan segment. The Slavia comes with two TSI turbo-petrol engine options, a 1.0 liter and a 1.5 liter. The 1.0-litre will be the obvious choice for most people, but the 1.5-litre is also a pretty capable option. In today’s article we will see why you should consider the 1.5 liter engine from the Skoda Slavia.
Much better than 1.0 liter
It is not surprising that the 1.5 liter engine is much better than the 1.0 liter engine. Not only is it more powerful than the 1.0-litre, it’s also much more refined. It offers a linear and smooth flow of power, providing a comfortable ride.

The Slavia’s 1.0 liter TSI engine is the real competitor to cars like the Honda City, Hyundai Verna and Maruti Ciaz. The Slavia’s 1.5-litre TSI engine is in a class of its own, however. In terms of power, the 1.5-liter TSI rivals naturally aspirated 2.0-liter engines.
Active Cylinder Technology with Engine Start Shutdown
The Slavia comes with active cylinder technology. This technology activates and deactivates the cylinders according to the power required. The technology is very beneficial for increasing energy efficiency. It also comes with the engine start and stop feature which is a good feature to have in start and stop traffic.

The 1.5-litre TSI has a claimed mileage of 18.72 kmpl (manual) and 18.41 kmpl (DSG). It is quite comparable to the 1.0 liter TSI which has a claimed mileage of 19.47 kmpl (manual) and 18.07 kmpl (automatic torque converter).
