Skoda Kushaq is the main highlight in the compact-SUV range in India and the people are confused if they should wait for the Kushaq or perhaps go for KIA Seltos or Hyundai Creta right away.

 Why is Skoda Kushaq Worth Waiting For?

First of all, Skoda is a german company and it has a way better built quality and safety than any of the other companies dealing in the compact SUV segment which include Hyundai & KIA.

And, Kushaq is going to be built in India which means that the pricing might be a bit lower than Creta & Seltos and even if it weren’t Kushaq has a more powerful and more refined engine.


Skoda Kushaq has the essence of the SUV look which, honestly speaking, the new Hyundai Creta is lacking. The overall looks are better than both the Korean sisters. Unlike other cars in the segment, Kushaq doesn’t have a complicated variant range as it only consists of three models.

Kushaq is 4225mm long, 1760mm wide & 1612mm high, it has a ground clearance of 188mm &  has a 385-litre boot which can expand up to 1405-litres.


Is The Interior Of Skoda Kushaq Better Than Its Rivals?

Kushaq’s interior simply possesses luxury as it is full of premium materials and soft touches. There is some hard and scratchy plastic but it won’t matter much. Kushaq also gets the new 2-spoke steering wheel which is also available in top-spec cars made by Skoda like Superb and Octavia.

It features a floating 10.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system that has all the basic features like Apple CarPlay & Android Auto and some unique features like ‘Valet Mode’.

What Is The Price Of  The Skoda Kushaq?

Well, Skoda hasn’t revealed the pricing of the Kushaq but we expect it to come bearing a price tag of Rs.9.95 lacs to Rs.15 lacs (ex-showroom).

Is Kushaq Worth Buying?

Some might say that it is a little overpriced but in our opinion, this car will have a very good built quality & is filled with features and the reason why the price is so high its because it has the most powerful and responsive turbo-engine in the segment.

Skoda Kushaq: Additional Info

It will feature two different powertrain options which will include a 114-bhp base engine and a 149-bhp turbocharged engine. It is going to be launched alongside the new Volkswagen Taigun which has a higher price point than Kushaq. There are also some elements that we think Skoda should’ve given such as the digital instrument cluster and a panoramic sunroof but we’re more than satisfied with the car and we hope that these changes will be fulfilled in the Kushaq Facelift.
