Skoda Kushaq: A Stylish Yet Practical SUV Choice

After driving the Skoda Kushaq for over six months now I can share a firsthand account of both its charms and challenges. The Kushaq with its 1.0 TSI engine is quite a performer delivering a robust 115hp which makes highway driving a breeze. Its handling is commendable and the ride quality is top notch thanks to its well tuned suspension. Fuel efficiency is decent coming around 17.88 km/l for the petrol variant which is economical for its class.The rear seating space might feel cramped for three adults and the boot space at 385 liters though decent for families.

Skoda Kushaq best design

Skoda Kushaq is my new car the available at price point of 13.7 lakhs. First Time i am Very impressed with the interior design of car. The Exterior design also very Good. The Seating arrangement is also very comfortable and provided material is also Very Good quality. But The car gives little low mileage in City. The Engine Displacement is about 1498 cc. The Transmission Type of my car is Automatic. The provided Front and rear Powerful Windows is also Good. The Airbags gives safety to both driver and passenger. The Pick up and Breaking system is also very impressive.

A Mixed Bag of Emotions

After months of contemplation and endless trips to the dealership, I finally got my hands on the Skoda Kushaq. Having driven it for a few thousand kilometers, I feel equipped to share my thoughts.Firstly, the Kushaq impresses with its solid build quality and eye catching European design. Powered by a choice of a 1.0 TSI engine that offers 115PS or a more potent 1.5 TSI that churns out 150PS, it’s a joy to drive specially with its punchy performance. The cabin is plush and well insulated, creating a comfortable environment even on bustling Indian streets.

Skoda Kushaq Pros and Cons

Kushaq Positives Points: Classy SUV looks. Sensible features list and simple variant line-up. Powerful 1.5 TSI petrol engine and engaging driving dynamics. Good safety features.

Kushaq Negatives Points: Lacks some 'wow' features. Could have been wider for better space in the second row. No diesel option.

Zigwheels Expert's Conclusion : The Kushaq's sensible feature set, peppy engines and rewarding driving dynamics should appeal to enthusiasts shopping in this segment.

Super awesome

Had an amazing customer service while purchasing the car.Got the delivery 1 week before committed date.I had asked for a pdi and the dealer dint show any hesitation & called me over1for it and let me do a thorough examination.Post delivery service was also great attending to all my1questions.1.The car is a sheer drivers delight.The 1.5 mt engine is super awesome.The additional premium on the car is completely justified when you drive the1car.2.The fuel efficiency was 17-20 km/l on highway and 12-14 km/l on city rides.3.Steering adjustment ( tilt & telescopic) helped find the right driving position1& though on lighter side its still precise & helped instilled confidence.4.Clutch & gearbox are1very smooth.Stability is great with almost minimal body roll.5.Suspension was comfortable, However a bit on1the stiffer side.6.Boot space was the eyebrow raiser as i could pack in more bags than the creta ! 7.Storage1spaces are well done with the cooled gloves box capable of holding several 200 ml cans for a refreshing drink1on a hot driving day.8.Ventilated seats are a boon on the hot highway drives.9.Touch screen has high1resolution and very slick and easy to use.10.Comfortable seats and a lovely 2 spoke steering with leather finish is very stylish.Cons: 1.A/c controls being touch, Its tough to set it up without taking your eyes off the road.Also the cooling is1average & not excellent.2.A digital instrument cluster like the one in skoda kamiq would have done1wonders.3.Some bits of the car ( like roof lining ) etc have some cost cutting but those are mostly areas1where your eyes would look once a while.So not a deal breaker.Service & maintenance : expect 6000/- yearly1including labor.Recommend taking the 4 yrs maintenance package as its cheaper in the longer run.Verdict: if1you want a performance car with sensible features with good build & safety then buy this car without a1doubt.The only other car matching this performance in the underrated beast nissan kicks 1.3 turbo but it has some ergonomic issues & a dull interior.However, Kicks is the only car that goes head1on head with this car's performance.

Bought kushaq

4.7

I bought Skoda Kushaq Ambition 1.0 manual in mid-September 2020. I have done 11k km till now 60% highway and 40% city drive. The reason I Bought Kushaq- 1) Wanted a compact SUV with power so that I can drive that on highways and traffic as well. Trust me it is 1 great car for city drive as well due to turbo engine 2) Safety standards 3) 10-inch Infotainment system has very good touch response and Music system is good even without amplifier and 1subwoofer in mid variant. 4) Power Delivery 5) Interior (I always wanted a black interior car I'm not a fan of1beige interiors). Also, the dashboard designs are very attractive and appealing with great finishing .6) great1Torque 7) Comfort 8) Great legroom for passengers 9) Sheer Driving Pleasure 10) Smart Elements so these are the 10 reasons why I bought Kushaq. Also, the cons what I feel is 1) backseat lacks space for 3 people 2 people can sit comfortably basically its a proper 4 seaters 2) Dimensions such as height and length could have better although it has the longest wheelbase almost competitors3) Ac Control touch buttons are not really so easy to use while driving physical buttons would have been better 4) Lacks digital cockpit. But overall I'm happy with my choice and until now the performance Kushaq delivered is really really amazing also the mileage is good as well my average mileage is 16-17 kmpl which was not expected. Those who are considering Seltos and Creta should at least once test drive Kushaq and Taigun before buying I think this might change your mind. Because a lot of people have many misconceptions about VW and Skoda. Although Creta and Seltos are great cars as well.

I have been driving skoda

I have been driving skoda kushaq 1.5 since december 21, And it really feels pleasure to drive after having driven diesel cars for a decade and a half.It is definitely very silent especially in the highways, With a city average being around 11 and on highways at about 15.In terms of power i didn’t feel any lack of power, And although the suspension is a little on the stiffer side, But overall there is low body roll and better stability even on high speeds.Braking is again excellent and over all build quality is superb.I really liked their airsense feature that routinely lets fresh air to ensure a safe and comfortable ride.The ventillated seats are more like a gimmick.The infotainment system is quite standard though for a car that costs close to 18 lakhs, But it works efficiently.However considering that the vw had targeted indian market with this car, I wish they had given a bigger boot space, As at times i feel the space ain’t enough.A little bigger boot space would have gone a long way considering for an average customer it is going to be his family car.The other thing which i didn’t like was the seating for middle person in the back, Although i haven’t seen a proper 5 seater in this segment, But considering it’s a car that’s being designed for indian market; it might have been a great addition.

Problems in Kushaq

Two issues are haunting me

I bought kushaq style automatic about 6 months ago. No doubt, driving kushaq is a pleasure. But two issues are haunting me, mileage is 7 km/l on average, From day one . Initially I thought it would set itself after running for sometime. Also I thought it's software data showing 19 km/l wrongly. But when I tested manually and with long time experience, I found out that the actual mileage is not more than 7 kmpl in city. I tried outstation too but it is hardly giving 10 to 11. I don't know if I got a wrong/defective piece. Apart from that there is another irritating issue is that, Driver's side window doesn't close automatically on pressing the up button. I have to try again and again to shut it up completely.

Sales service

2.0

Poor after sales service, Serious engine snag in the 1.5at after 1700 km.Service experience at modi kurla mumbai is a horror story.4 days the car is in the garage and no timeline visible, No replacement vehicle provided and extremely poor communication.Website contains a form to escalate it to national customer care head majed ali.No response after two days even from corporate.So the culture starts from the top.Regretting the decision to buy.

Seating height

I drove ambition-automatic 2023 model.The seating height is good with clear front view.Pick-up and accelaration is awesome with good traction.Sound damping is really good.Company fitted music system is quiet loud and clear.This car is complete in all sense.Over all the car dynamics are good.Only 2 things i felt are annoying (random basis)hybrid off button needs to be switched off every-time engine shuts down which becomes little annoying, Sudden braking on red lights switches off the engine.Other one is braking noise on low speeds or in traffic jam(which is operational noise in 1.0l engine).Overall the driving experience is the best in class.Its a car to be loved by driving enthusiast and car lovers.

Very demanding

Skoda Kushaq is a compact SUV that excels in both style and performance. Its turbocharged engine delivers impressive power and fuel efficiency, making it a joy to drive on city streets and highways alike. The spacious interior provides ample room for passengers and cargo, while the comfortable seats ensure a pleasant ride, even on long journeys. The Kushaq's build quality is top-notch, with robust construction and a range of safety features, including airbags and stability control. However, the infotainment system could be more intuitive, and some may find the ride a bit firm over rough roads. Overall, the Skoda Kushaq offers a winning combination of style, performance, and practicality.
