ŠKODA has released two design sketches to give a detailed preview of the new KUSHAQ. The design of the midsize SUV for the Indian market draws inspiration from the bold look of the ŠKODA VISION IN concept car. ŠKODA AUTO has adapted the MQB-A0-IN version of the Volkswagen Group's Modular Transverse Toolkit specifically for India. As part of the INDIA 2.0 product campaign, it is the first of four models from the ŠKODA and Volkswagen brands to be manufactured locally in India. The world premiere of the ŠKODA KUSHAQ will take place on 18 March 2021.

The first design sketch shows the powerful front of the new ŠKODA KUSHAQ, whose name is derived from the ancient Indian language of Sanskrit. The word ‘Kushak’ means king or emperor. The sharply cut, two-part front headlights, which extend to the wide ŠKODA grille, create a prominent appearance. The impressive front bumper with underride protection emphasises the athletic look of the SUV. 

The second sketch shows the rear of the new ŠKODA KUSHAQ, which has a clear structure and is framed by an elongated roof spoiler and a rugged rear diffuser in the bumper. The taillights of the midsize SUV feature the brand’s trademark crystalline structures, and the ŠKODA lettering appears in block capitals on the tailgate. 


In terms of technology, the ŠKODA KUSHAQ and the other upcoming volume models are based on the locally developed and produced MQB-A0-IN platform. This already complies with the new, stricter safety and emission requirements in India. With a planned 95 per cent localisation level for the new vehicles, the technical development is being carried out at ŠKODA AUTO’s Technology Centre in Pune.

Compact yet spacious: the ŠKODA KUSHAQ

With the launch of the KUSHAQ, ŠKODA AUTO is entering the subcontinent’s rapidly growing mid size SUV segment for the first time, and is now offering a third SUV in India alongside the KODIAQ and KAROQ. Based on the MQB-A0-IN platform, the ŠKODA KUSHAQ is ideally suited for use in India’s metropolises. Its long wheelbase of 2,651 mm, rugged look and large wheels make it look much larger than it actually is. Boasting versatility, as is typical for ŠKODA, plenty of space for five occupants and a large boot, the SUV’s interior is impressive too. Depending on the trim level, the ŠKODA KUSHAQ features LED headlights and LED daytime running lights as standard. The tail and brake lights are also fitted with striking and instantaneously responsive LEDs.

Choice of two powerful and efficient TSI engines

The all-new ŠKODA KUSHAQ is powered by one of two efficient TSI petrol engines: a 1.0- or 1.5 litre TSI, both of which are coupled with front-wheel drive. Depending on the trim level, the KUSHAQ is fitted with a 6-speed manual gearbox, a 6-speed automatic transmission or a 7-speed DSG. In keeping with the benefits of TSI technology, both engines will offer impressive performance yet low fuel consumption.


Air conditioning as standard, and state-of-the-art infotainment systems

The elevated seating position typical of an SUV allows for excellent all-round visibility. The height of the driver’s seat and the position of the steering wheel can be adjusted to suit the driver’s individual preferences. The state-of-the-art infotainment systems come with a central touchscreen. To ensure a pleasant interior temperature, each car features air conditioning or automatic Climatronic, depending on the trim level.

High level of safety and assistance systems for optimum comfort

The ŠKODA KUSHAQ offers excellent active and passive safety as well as numerous assistance systems. Occupants are protected by up to six airbags – for the driver and front passenger as standard, and optional front side airbags and curtain airbags – while ESC ensures increased driving safety. Hill-Hold Control, rain and light sensors and a cruise control system further improve both safety and comfort. The car can also be fitted with a tyre pressure monitor to keep an eye on the air pressure.
