Skoda Kushaq to debut on March 18

Skoda Kushaq will finally debut on March 18, 2021. It would be a world premiere for the Kushaq SUV, whereas the prices for India would be announced later.

Skoda Kushaq - Skoda Vision IN

The Skoda Kushaq will be identical to the concept SUV shown at the 2020 Auto Expo. It will be powered by two Petrol engines. The first is a 110hp, 1.0-litre, three-cylinder unit (also seen in the current Rapid) and the second is a 150hp, 1.5-litre, four-cylinder unit (which comes in the Karoq). Both engines will be offered with a 6-speed manual gearbox, though automatic gearbox options will vary – the 1.0-litre engine will get a 6-speed torque converter while the 1.5-litre unit will come with a 7-speed DSG.

The Skoda Kushaq will be based on the India-specific MQB A0 IN architecture, and will be similar in size to its mid-size SUV rivals. However, it will feature a longer 2,671mm wheelbase, which could definitely benefit the amount of interior space on offer.

Skoda Kushaq will be taking on Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Nissan Kicks, the recently updated MG Hector and the Tata Harrier. It will also see another rival in the form of the Volkswagen Taigun.
