Skoda Kushaq will go on sale in our market by mid-2021. But what it will look like? Don't worry, here's how the 2021 Skoda Kushaq will look in its production guise. Take a look at it here.
2021 Skoda Kushaq is all set for its global unveiling in March this year. The Kushaq was showcased to the masses in its concept avatar at the 2020 Auto Expo as Skoda Vision IN. The mid-size SUV will be going on sale by sometime this year only. It has been spotted on test numerous times till now, as Skoda is keen on launching it soon in the Indian market. The test mules of the Skoda Kushaq have been spotted wearing heavy camouflage all the time. Thus, not a lot is known about its looks. Our in-house rendering artist – Shoeb R. Kalania, however, has come up with his illustration of the production-spec Skoda Kushaq.
In this rendering, the Skoda Kushaq looks phenomenal. The Kushaq will compete with the likes of Kia Seltos and Hyundai Creta. With these looks, it will have an upper hand in the competition. On the front, it features traditional Skoda design cues. The chrome-surrounded radiator grille merges with the sleek headlamps which make for an angry-looking face. The fog lamps are high-set and add a distinctive appeal to the Kushaq’s front facet. Also, the bumper gets a lot of cut and creases here, along with faux air vents to break the visual bulk. The chin comprises of a big air dam with a sleek scuff plate.
Moving over the sides, the SUV elements are nicely incorporated in the Kushaq’s design. It gets black cladding on the lower part of the body and doors, which runs across the wheel arches to merge with the bumpers. The designer has replaced the massive alloy wheels with rather practical units. All the fancy bits, which were seen on the Skoda Vision IN concept, are now replaced with production-spec elements. These minute changes have made the Kushaq look more imposing in this rendering.
The Kushaq is likely to go on sale with six airbags, hill-hold control, ESC, ABS with EBD as standard affair across the range. Other features will include all-LED lighting, tyre pressure monitoring system, panoramic sunroof, digital instrument cluster, automatic climate control and more. The powertrain options will comprise of two turbo-petrol motors – 1.0L TSI and 1.5L TSI. These engines will dish out 110 HP and 150 HP, respectively. Transmission options on the Kushaq will include 6-speed MT, 6-speed AT, and 7-speed DCT.
