The brakes are pretty sharp and take a little getting used to at first. They bite into the road with an unrelenting grip.

So I’ve been driving the Slavia for the last couple of days and the initial impressions are as follows:
- The car simply feels light. A little too light on some occasions. Almost like a go kart.
- At higher speeds under sudden acceleration it might make you feel slightly out of control. But it’s in that very sensation that the essence of its fun factor resides.
- The brakes are pretty sharp and take a little getting used to at first. They bite into the road with an unrelenting grip.
- The steering feels light to the touch, yet heavy with purpose. It is a decent harmonious blend of responsiveness and control.
- As you peer through the rear view mirror, your vision is constrained. The field of vision through the rear window is very tiny in my opinion.
- The front seat angle pushes your body into a peculiar posture. It is at a slight incline under your thighs that simply can’t be adjusted. I looked around but the incline isn’t adjustable. Could cause back pain over longer drives.
- And yes. The notorious issue of Slavia rattles is true. It’s a brand new car but with each pothole the car seems to voice its protest with a lot of squeaky sounds coming from all over.
- The sound system is pretty average but the infotainment screen is pretty neat.
- My current daily driver is a F30 3 series and that feels completely planted on the road even at higher speeds but this Slavia drives like a fun go kart. It is a completely new yet exciting feeling.
After driving it for 2 days, I barely care about the other little niggles here or there because I had an awfully fun time driving it.
This also serves as a gentle reminder that not every aspect of the car needs to be exceptional to contribute to your overall experience.
