The Skoda Kushaq gets new features as it completes one year in India.
The Skoda Kushaq SUV has completed a year in India, and to celebrate the occasion, the company has introduced a host of updates and changes to the car.
The new additions to the car include a new headliner in the cabin and Tyre Pressure Monitoring System as standard across the range. Additionally, all variants powered by the 1.0-litre TSI engine are now equipped with the Start-Stop Recuperation system as standard. The company claims that this improves its fuel efficiency by 7 to 9%. Inside, the car now gets a 20.32cm Skoda Infotainment System, with knobs and buttons for select functions.
In terms of equipment, the Kushaq now gets Non-Sunroof (NSR) Style trim. It sits between the current Ambition and Style variants. The NSR Style variant is based on the 1.0 TSI Style. It will have a 4-dial medium analogue instrument cluster and will come exclusively with a 6-speed manual transmission, thus offering better value to the customer. The top-of-the-line Style of the Kushaq variant, with a Sunroof, has now been upgraded with a 20.32cm Skoda Virtual Cockpit for the driver’s instrument console, replacing analogue dials.
The car retains the 1.0 TSI, which comes with a choice between a 6-speed manual and 6-speed torque converter automatic. The 1.5 TSI EVO engine, on the other hand, will also continue with the familiar 6-speed manual or 7-speed DSG automatic.
The Kushaq range is now available in five variants – Active, Ambition, Style (NSR), Style, and the recently launched Kushaq Monte Carlo.
