Skoda Kushaq To launch In June 2021
Earlier this year in March the production-spec Skoda Kushaq was unveiled, the model scheduled to launch soon after. The next medium-size SUV of Skoda will be shown in July 2022.
The Skoda Kushaq price announcement is scheduled to take place in June and the SUV will be shown at the showroom by July, according to tweets by Zac Hollis, brand manager for Sales, Service, and Marketing at Skoda Auto India. In the current situation in India, COVID-19 has most likely delayed the launch, with some countries locked up because there is an increase in everyday instances.
The Skoda Kushaq has a very pure and striking look, which continues to be true to Auto Expo 2020’s Vision IN concept. There is a large Skoda Grille on the front of the Kushaq, a double-headlight set-up with LED DRLs, and a well-sculpted front bumper with a false-air intake under the fog lamps.
On the sides, there is a strong line that stretches to the rear and a chrome-lined lower window. In addition, the Top Spec models will sport17″ diamond-cut alloy wheels and rooftop tracks.
The back is equipped with an on-roof bumper, an inferior silver diffuser, wrapper, and LED Lights, and a chrome strip that passes across the boot, adding to the feeling of width.
The interiors of the Skoda Kushaq have a sleek and utilitarian appearance, just like the exterior style. Being a Skoda, the standard interior will be excellent and premium touches are added to the upmarket feel of the interior.
In addition, the Kushaq will offer features such as a 10.0-inch stand-alone touchscreen infotainment device with embedded applications, smart car tech, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto wireless features, Wi-Fi in-car, and more. Equipment such as an electrical sunroof, air-cooled front seats, ambient light, cooled glovebox, six speakers, and a 50W subwoofer, to name a few would be available.
Skoda supplies six airbags, a rear car park camera, ISOFIX infant seat mounts, car headlamps and washing machines, and a multi-charge blockage mechanism on the safety front. ESCs are also available in all models –a section first–as standard, and a pneumatic pull-down control and support are optional.
The Kushaq offers two engine choices under the cap: 115hp, 1.0 liters of three-cylinder turbo petrol, and 150hp, 1.5 liters of four-cylinder turbo petrol. Both engines have the same six-speed manual gearbox, with the 1.0-liter TSI automatic converter and the 1.5-liter TSI automatic dual-clutch seven-speed automatic transducer.
The Kushaq has been based by Skoda on the MQB-A0-IN platform in India. The Volkswagen Taigun and the substitutions for VW Vento and Skoda Rapid are also supported by this platform.
The Kushaq will face up to the popularity of the new VW Taigun, Kia Seltos, Hyundai Crete, Nissan Kicks, Hector, and Hartarier Tata once launched in India.
