The video takes us through every single detail of the development process. Firstly, the overall height of the Slavia has been lowered considerably to enhance the driving and handling characteristics which is the trademark of a performance sedan. The front end has been modified aesthetically with sleek horizontal fog lamps in place of the rounded units, a splitter underneath the front bumper for better aerodynamic efficiency, a blacked-out grille, redesigned bumper, de-chroming of the butterfly grille and replacing it with black glossy material. The VRS badging has been inscribed into the grille as well.
