Take A Closer Look At The Skoda Kushaq In These Detailed Images

Bookings for the Kushaq will begin in June with deliveries commencing in July

Skoda has unveiled its first made-in-India SUV, the Kushaq. It’s the first car under the carmaker’s India 2.0 strategy and could have the Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos worried. What is so special about the Kushaq? Let’s take a closer look and find out:

Remember the Vision IN concept? The Kushaq retains most of the design including Skoda’s traditional butterfly grille which is flanked by sleek LED headlamps.

It gets a strong chin in the form of a muscular bumper flanked by aggressive air dams.

Its dimensions are smaller than its competitors but it still gets a 2,651mm long wheelbase, longer than the Creta and Seltos by 41mm.

In profile, its ideal body cladding, raked A-pillars, and roof rails scream ‘SUV’.

The 17-inch alloy wheels look spot-on and probably are the best-looking out of the lot.

At the rear, the first thing you notice are the sharp L-shaped LED tail lamps with crystal detailing.

The LED light bar from the concept connecting the tail lamps is replaced by a chrome strip which connects the reflectors on the rear bumper.

The Kushaq sees a new form of badging in the form of SKODA embossed on the tailgate.

Inside, the interior looks quite a bit like the Vision IN concept.

It gets a floating 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system which is available in the mid- and top-spec variants.

There is also a premium two-spoke steering wheel and analogue dials instead of a digital cluster.

Other features include connected car tech, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, ventilated front seats, single-pane sunroof, six-speaker sound system with an additional subwoofer, rear AC vents, and cruise control.

Safety features consist of ABS with EBD, up to six airbags, ISOFIX mounts, parking sensors with a camera, electronic stability control, and a tyre pressure monitoring system.

If you’re looking for a diesel powertrain, then the Kushaq is not for you, as it is offered with two engines: a 115PS/175Nm 1.0-litre turbo-petrol unit and a 150PS/250Nm 1.5-litre turbo-petrol unit.

Transmission options include a 6-speed manual gearbox as standard. A 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox is offered with the smaller engine, whereas the bigger 1.5-litre engine gets a 7-speed DSG option.

The Kushaq is expected to be priced between Rs 9 lakh and Rs 17 lakh. Bookings will begin from June, with deliveries set to begin from July. In addition to the Creta and Seltos, the Kushaq will also lock horns with the upcoming VW Taigun.
