Czech carmaker Skoda has finally launched the Kushaq, a compact SUV with a starting price of Rs. 10.50 lakhs (ex-showroom).
The Hyundai Creta rival is the first car developed by Skoda under its India 2.0 programme. It is available in three variants: Active, Ambition, and Style.
The Skoda Kushaq is based on the MQB-A0-IN platform and features crisp styling on the outside, including LED lights, 16- or 17-inch wheels depending on the model, roof rails, a rear spoiler, and chrome highlights.
Inside the cabin the Skoda Kushaq features a touchscreen (7- or 10-inch units) with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Bluetooth connectivity, SmartLink, a touch control panel for the Climatronic system, ambient lighting, USB-C ports, wireless smartphone charger, auto-dimming IRVM, electric sunroof, and more.
It comes with two engine options: a 1.0-litre turbocharged 3-cylinder motor producing 115 PS and 175 Nm of torque and a 1.5-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder unit generating 150 PS and 250 Nm of torque.
Both engines can be had with a 6-speed manual transmission, or a 6-speed torque converter automatic with the 1.0L engine and a 7-speed DSG with the larger 1.5L unit.
Safety features include (up to) 6 airbags, ESC (standard on all models), TPMS, Hill Hold Control, Multi-Collision Brake, ISOFIX mounts, and much more.
