Let’s check out which one is more spacious, comfortable and practical for you

Skoda has finally entered the compact SUV segment with the Kushaq, priced from Rs 10.49 lakh to Rs 17.59 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). It comes with either a 115PS 1-litre or a 150PS 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine, paired to a 6-speed manual transmission as standard. 41.61Besides, the 1-litre engine gets a 6-speed automatic, whereas the 1.5-litre engine gets a 7-speed DSG (dual clutch automatic) transmission as an option. The Kushaq rivals the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, and Nissan Kicks. 

If you are confused between the Kushaq or Creta for your family, then here are the top five takeaways from our review which will help you: 

1. The Kushaq Gets An Upmarket Cabin

The Creta’s interior is very functional and practical with a clean layout  However, the plastic quality is average and it won't appeal to your heart. On the other hand, the Kushaq gets a more premium and upmarket looking cabin. The two-spoke steering wheel, large standing touchscreen, glittery gloss finish and the matte 3D hexagonal pattern, and the two-tone layout looks classy. There are certain areas, however, where the quality feels a bit flimsy- like on the side AC vents, handbrake lever and the sun visors. 

2. The Creta Offers More Features

The Hyundai Creta and Skoda Kushaq share a lot of features such as ventilated front seats, automatic headlamps, a large touchscreen infotainment system, six airbags, a sunroof, and wireless charging. However, it’s the Creta that goes the extra mile with a panoramic sunroof, a full set of connected car technology, a proper TPMS, powered driver’s seat, a digital instrument cluster, and drive and traction modes. 

3. Boot Space

On paper, the Creta’s boot capacity is 48 litres more than Kushaq’s 385 litres. However, once you start loading up, you will realize the Kushaq’s boot is deeper and accommodates more luggage, as per our test. Plus, the loading lip is lower, which is another advantage for the Skoda.  

4. The Creta Gets A Better Rear Seat Experience

Hyundai Creta rear seats (diesel variant)

The Kushaq offers nicely bolstered and well-contoured seats which are comfortable, but only for two people, with the third person needing to squeeze in and adjust tightly. On the other hand, the Creta offers a flat seat base, which when combined with a wide cabin , allows three passengers to fit in easily. And with the panoramic sunroof, good glass area and smaller front seats, the cabin feels a lot more spacious than the Kushaq. The final touches are added by the neck pillows and a reclining rear bench.

5. The Kushaq Offers A Better Ride Quality

The Skoda Kushaq can tackle large bumps, speed breakers and potholes with ease, allowing the cabin to stay composed and well insulated from harshness and sound. Even on highways, it remains very well planted and this makes it well suited for urban as well as long-distance travel. The Creta, on the other hand, has a softer suspension setup, which makes the ride a bit bouncy while going over bad roads. It is a very comfortable SUV, but the Kushaq is certainly better in this criteria.
