Skoda is all set to launch their much awaited crossover in India, the Skoda Kushaq. 

Almost a month back Skoda officially revealed the Kushaq to Indian audience. Since then everyone is waiting for the crossover to arrive. Let me give you more information about Skoda Kushaq.
Volkswagen announced their 2.0 project for Indian market few months back. Skoda and VW is working on many new products. Some of them they already launched and the upcoming one is really exciting. Skoda Kushaq will be built on VW’s latest MQB platform. Kushaq will rival other crossovers like Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos.
Skoda Kushaq will be powered by 2 engine options. A 1.0L TSI petrol engine which produces 109 BHP and 175 NM of torque and other one is going to be a 1.5L TSI engine which produces 150 BHP and 250 NM of torque. Both the engines will be mated with a manual and automatic gearbox’s.

Skoda Kushaq is expected to be priced from Rs-10L to Rs-17L.The 1.0L TSI will be offered all 3 trims. ACTIVE, AMBITION AND STYLE. This engine will be mated with a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed torque converter gearbox. Now, the 1.5L TSI which is my favourite. It will be offered with STYLE trim only ( top trim). It will mated to a 6-speed manual and a 7-speed DSG gearbox.The 1.0L TSI produces 109 BHP and 175Nm of torque and the 1.5L TSI produces 150 BHP and 250 Nm of torque. In terms of engine, i dont have any complaint. But Skoda should have offered thr 1.5L TSI with lower trims as well.


Skoda Kushaq will be loaded with ton of features. VW group is focusing on giving their customers a great ownership experience with their latest products and according to their upcoming lineup is looking hot. Skoda Kushaq is coming on 28th June. I personally have a lot of expectations from it. If Skoda launches the Kushaq at right prices, it can be a game changer for VW and Skoda in Indian market. If you are planning to buy a vehicle under Rs-20L, I will suggest you to wait for Kushaq. It is going to be worth it.
