The Kushaq is Skoda’s first foray into the hotly contested compact SUV segment that consists of Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos. Size ain’t the Kushaq’s forte, as it’s considerably smaller than its rivals. However, the Skoda has a longer wheelbase compared to the Korean duo.

Under the hood, the Kushaq has been provided with two engine options: 115PS 1.0-litre and a 150PS 1.5-litre turbo-petrol. Both get manual and automatic transmission options. Also, the larger engine features a segment-first cylinder deactivation technology, which automatically shuts down two cylinders in keeping with the power requirement for improved fuel economy.
