More importantly, Seltos and Creta offer 1.5 Petrol @ 14.34 and 15.5 Lakhs. Kushaq engine is 1 Litre and moreover, the koreans have loads of features. Maybe the Skoda doesnt want numbers.

    Korean siblings can enjoy. Skoda still not reading the mindset of Indian customers. Over price than Korean rivels will damage the selling of Kushaq. It should be 9.5 lakhs, it is reasonable.
