It won’t just be the platform that will be similar to the Kushaq, there’ll be a few features as well

Skoda’s upcoming sub-4m SUV, which hasn’t been christened with a name yet, is being prepped for a March 2025 debut. We know it’ll be based on the same MQB-A0 IN platform, albeit altered slightly, that underpins the Kushaq and the similarities won’t just be limited to its platform. The two will share quite a few mutual features and here’s the list of the 10 things that the sub-4m SUV could get from its bigger sibling:

10-inch touchscreen infotainment system

This one shouldn’t come as a surprise really. The segment is competitive in respect to features and offers screen sizes of up to 10.25 inches. So it won’t be surprising if Skoda packs the sub-4m SUV with the same 10-inch unit seen in the Kushaq. The lower variants could also get the smaller 8-inch touchscreen system from the Kushaq.

Wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay

A big screen with no wireless phone connectivity is like offering samosa without the chutney. Almost every vehicle in this segment boasts this feature, and Skoda’s contender too should get this feature from the Kushaq.

8-inch digital driver’s display

The dual digital displays go hand in hand. So along with the 10-inch infotainment system, the sub-4m SUV could also get the 8-inch digital driver’s display. The chances are very high, especially given the fact that the competition offers bigger 10.25-inch displays here as well with multiple views and crisp graphics.

Automatic climate control

While we don’t expect the Skoda sub-4m SUV to offer dual zone climate control, automatic climate control is a no-brainer and should be offered as part of the kit of the higher variants. Lower trims will likely get manual control for the AC.

Wireless phone charger

The Kushaq’s wireless phone charging feature could trickle down to the sub-4m SUV as well. Very useful while using wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as it tends to drain your phone’s battery and the charging pad will keep it topped up all the time. 

Single-pane sunroof

A sunroof is like a smartphone these days – everyone needs to have one and even SUVs like the Tata Punch and Hyundai Exter from a segment below are offering one. The Kushaq gets a single-pane sunroof and we expect the same to be offered on the Skoda’s sub-4m SUV as well. 

Keyless entry with push-button start

Who inserts and turns a key fob to start a car these guys? Not someone sitting inside a Skoda atleast. The Skoda sub-4m SUV should get the keyless entry with push-button start feature from the Kushaq.

Ventilated front seats

The Skoda Kushaq came equipped with ventilated seats right from its launch and we expect the sub-4m SUV to get the same feature as well. It is possible that it’ll be limited to the higher variants of the upcoming Skoda.

Powered driver's seat

Once a luxury car feature, a powered driver seat is becoming more and more omnipresent even in mass market vehicles. The Sonet gets it, so does the Venue, and we reckon so will Skoda’s upcoming sub-4m SUV.

Six airbags and electronic aids

Considering Skoda’s strong stance on safety, the sub-4m SUV won’t be skimping out here. It is likely to offer six airbags not just in its higher trims but as a standard safety equipment.

As for electronic aids, the Kushaq offers quite a few of them like electronic stability control, ABS with EBD and tyre pressure monitoring system. We expect the sub-4m SUV to offer the same bunch of electronic aids. Some of these could be standard, while some could be offered in the higher variants.

So indeed it won’t just be the platform that will be similar, but also the list of features. In fact, the former will have to be tweaked slightly to accommodate a smaller vehicle and you can know more about it along with its powertrain details in this story. Prices for Skoda’s sub-4m SUV could start from around Rs 8.5 lakh (ex-showroom), putting it in contention with the Mahindra XUV300, Tata Nexon, Kia Sonet, Hyundai Venue, Maruti Suzuki Brezza, and Nissan Magnite.
