As is known by know, the Kushaq will be offered with a pair of TSI turbo-petrol engines. There’s the 150hp, 1.5-litre four-cylinder unit and a 115hp, 1.0-litre three-cylinder unit. A 6-speed manual gearbox will be offered as standard with both engines. Additionally, both units will also get the option of automatic gearboxes – a 6-speed torque converter for the 1.0 TSI and a 7-speed DSG for the 1.5 TSI.

Skoda Kushaq: expected price and rivals

Once launched, the Kushaq will go up against other midsize SUVs such as the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Nissan Kicks, MG Hector and Tata Harrier. The Kushaq will also have to contend with its sister car, the VW Taigun, which is expected to arrive in the coming months. Expect prices for the Kushaq to be in the region of Rs 10-16 lakh (ex-showroom). Deliveries of the Skoda Kushaq are expected to start on July 12.
