The Kushaq will be a petrol-only offering and will get a choice between 1.0-litre and 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engines

  • The SUV is set to be launched on June 28.

  • Skoda will offer the Kushaq in three variants: Active, Ambition, and Style.

  • The base-spec Active and mid-spec Ambition will only get the smaller engine while the top-spec Style will come with both the engines.

  • With the 150PS 1.5-litre TSI engine, the Kushaq will be one of the most powerful SUVs in the segment.

  • It is expected to be priced from Rs 10 lakh to Rs 17 lakh (ex-showroom).

The Skoda Kushaq will go on sale on June 28. While we already know it will be offered in three variants -- Active, Ambition, and Style -- we have now got its variant-wise engine and transmission details. Here’s a look:

Variants

1.0-litre TSI 6-speed MT

1.0-litre TSI 6-speed AT

1.5-litre TSI 6-speed MT

1.5-litre TSI 7-speed DSG

Active

The base-spec Active will come with just one engine and gearbox combo -- the 1.0-litre turbo-petrol (115PS/178Nm), mated to a 6-speed MT. Skoda will offer the mid-spec Ambition with the same 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine but it will have two gearbox choices -- a 6-speed MT and a 6-speed torque converter. Finally, the top-spec Style will be available with the smaller engine (with both 6-speed MT and torque converter options) as well as the 1.5-litre turbo-petrol unit (150PS/250Nm). The 1.5-litre engine either gets a 6-speed MT or a 7-speed DSG (dual-clutch automatic). The Kushaq will be one of the most powerful SUVs in the segment.

Skoda will equip the Kushaq with a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, cruise control, ventilated front seats, a sunroof, wireless charging, and a 6-speaker sound system with a subwoofer. It will get up to six airbags, rear parking sensors, and electronic stability control (as standard).

We expect Skoda to price the Kushaq between Rs 10 lakh and Rs 17 lakh (ex-showroom). The Kushaq will compete with the Kia Seltos, Nissan Kicks, Maruti Suzuki S-Cross, Hyundai Creta, Renault Duster, and the upcoming Volkswagen Taigun.

Kushaq should be released with 1.5Ltr petrol engine. 1ltr turbo may get strained for such big car.

    Yes, turbo engines are a pain to maintain and run. I don't want to idle after parking. When Creta can offer a naturally aspiraed engine, why not Kushaq/Taigun?
