Take a look at the 2021 Skoda Kushaq's rear facet in this digital rendering before it sheds its veils on March 18. The Skoda Kushaq is likely to go on sale by mid-2021.
Skoda is a famous name in the Indian market. The carmaker is known for producing some of the best sedans that are on sale in the country. However, the Czech carmaker is now planning to enter the compact-SUV space, which is currently dominated by the Hyundai Creta. To do so, Skoda will be launching the Kushaq in the Indian market this year. The 2021 Skoda Kushaq is ready for its global premiere, scheduled for March 18. But, our in-house rendering expert – Shoeb R. Kalania, has managed to reveal the Skoda Kushaq already with his fine art of rendering cars digitally.
In the above rendering, the 2021 Skoda Kushaq boasts of its strong SUV credentials quite beautifully. With an upright stance, it gets a sharp-looking rear facet. The Skoda Kushaq features a slender design for the tail lamps as seen on other Skoda cars. Between the tail lamps sits the ‘SKODA’ mascot, which has now replaced the brand’s logo from new Skoda cars. The loading lip is a bit high, and the bumper gets a dual-tone treatment with the inclusion of a silver-finished skid plate.
The rear fog lamps have been moved to the fenders here. Also, a wiper can be seen on the Kushaq’s rear-end in this rendering. This signifies that Kushaq will come loaded to the gills. Continuing this suite are the diamond-cut alloy wheels that measure 17-inch in diameter. To accentuate the SUV quotient furthermore, the 2021 Skoda Kushaq will don black cladding on the sides along with chunky roof rails. On the front, it will get sleek LED headlamps with high-mounted fog lamps. As the rear bumper, the front one will also feature a silver-finished skid plate.
For the powertrain options on the Kushaq, Skoda will resort to turbo-petrol power plants only. There will be 1.0L TSI and 1.5L TSI petrol motors on offer. The former will churn out 110 PS against 175 Nm from its 3-cylinder setup, while the latter will dish out 150 PS and 250 Nm with a 4-cylinder configuration. Transmission options on the Kushaq will include a 6-speed MT, 6-speed AT, and a 7-speed DCT. Once launched, the Skoda Kushaq will compete against the likes of Kia Seltos, Nissan Kicks, and Hyundai Creta.
