Days before the Taigun launches, Skoda announces receiving over 10,000 bookings for the Kushaq. Trying to encash further on this success is an update to the Style variant that now gets six airbags and tyre-pressure monitoring system at an incremental price.
The Czech automaker leading the Volkswagen group’s India 2.0 program has also said that Kushaq is leading its monthly sales momentum. The mid-sized SUV has helped the car brand to post increased sales in the country.
Skoda’s SUV for the energetic souls promises exciting driving dynamics, an experience that is introduced by both their 1.0-litre and 1.5-litre turbocharged engines. Sure they aren’t as in-your-face imposing or feature-loaded as some of its competitors but the overall fit and execution of the product remains consistent and of high-quality. While both the engines come standard with a six-speed manual gearbox, the 1.0-litre TSI gets an option of a six-speed AT and the 1.5-litre TSI can be had with an advanced seven-speed DSG.
The Kushaq goes up against the popular Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos along with the Nissan Kicks, MG Hector and Tata Harrier. The Taigun, it’s closely related sibling, is launching on the 23rd of this month, watch this space for more details.
