The much-anticipated Skoda Kushaq has been finally launched in India with prices starting at ₹ 10.50 lakh for the base variant and going all the way up to ₹ 17.60 lakh for the range-topping trim. The new compact SUV marks the beginning of a new journey for the German carmaker in our market and will rival the likes of some of the well-established models in its segment like the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos and Renault Duster among others. The Skoda Kushaq is also the first model to be spawned by the MQB-A0-IN platform which will underpin a slew of new model of the VW group in India, going forward. It is a localised version of the VW Group’s versatile MQB scalable architecture, which has been specifically developed for the Indian market.

The Skoda Kushaq looks sleek and quite handsome, thanks to its macho looks. It largely remains true to the concept version we saw at the 2020 Auto Expo featuring a similar chrome-accented butterfly grille flanked by a set of LED headlamps with LED daytime running lamps, and separate trapezoidal LED foglamps. The SUV also comes with LED taillamps, and Skoda will also be offering the SUV in Honey Orange and Tornado Red colours in India. Other colours include – Candy White, Brilliant Silver, and Carbon Steel. The Skoda Kushaq’s entry-level trim line, Active, will come with 16-inch steel wheels and Lhotse full wheel covers. In the Ambition trim level, the Kushaq gets Grus 16-inch alloy wheels, while the style variant will come with 17-inch Atlas two-tone alloys as standard.
