The Skoda Kushaq was first showcased at the 2020 Auto Expo as the Vision IN Concept. The production model of the compact-SUV has finally been revealed and is all set to step into the Indian market soon. Skoda is aiming to achieve high levels of localisation for this product and has built it on the MQB A0 IN platform. It will get 1.0-litre, three-cylinder, TSI and a 1.5-litre, four-cylinder, TSI petrol engine producing 110hp and 150hp respectively. The Kushaq will get a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, along with MySKODA Connect giving it connected car technologies. Besides these, it’ll also get ventilated front seats, wireless charging, smartphone pocket, automatic climate control and several other interior features. Colour options for the vehicle will include Candy White, Brilliant Silver, Carbon Black, Honey Orange and Tornado Red. Kushaq will offer up to 6 airbags, ESC, Hill-Hold Control, rain-sensing wipers and tyre pressure monitoring system. We expect Skoda to price the Kushaq competitively somewhere between Rs 10-16 lakh (ex-showroom).
