On Tuesday, Volkswagen Group revealed its new strategy for the coming decade . Under the tag line "New Auto," VW Group CEO Herbert Diess laid out how the company plans to increase profitability and streamline its operations by introducing a single battery electric vehicle (BEV) platform across all the group's brands.

By 2030, VW says that it will make more money selling EVs than vehicles with internal combustion engines, and it expects mobility services and software to make significant contributions to the bottom line by then.

One platform to rule them all

VW Group has been one of the most successful pioneers of using flexible architectures across multiple brands to build a diverse array of vehicles. Currently, there are four internal combustion platforms (MQB, MLB, MSB, and MMB) and one BEV platform (MEB) , with a second BEV platform called PPE coming online next year. MEB is for the volume brands VW, Seat, and Skoda, and PPE will be used by Audi and Porsche (and probably Bentley ).

    Skoda Kushaq First Review: See Images, Interior, Features / FossBytes · Thursday, 18 March, 2021 - 14:08 · 2 minutes

skoda kushaq first review 2

Skoda has been promising its new SUV for India for a while, and finally, today, we got to see the production version. Skoda Kushaq, which borrows its name from Sanskrit, meaning “king,” is a compact SUV.

The car will be launched next month along with bookings and the reveal of final pricing details. In this article, you’ll get the first and exclusive look at this SUV and also learn about its features.

How does Skoda Kushaq look?

The Kushaq bears similarities to the concept we first saw at the 2020 Auto Expo. The design is pure Skoda and similar to the Karoq or the bigger Kodiaq. The Kushaq is based on the MQB A0 IN platform and has been designed in India.

The dimensions are similar to a Creta with a length of 4,221mm and width of 1760mm while it has a fairly good ground clearance of 188mm. Top-end versions get 17-inch alloys while 16 would be standard.

The grille is big and expressive with a thick chrome line while the headlamp is divided into two parts with DRLs and LEDs. Top-end trims have a silver finish skid plate, while there are roof-rails and cladding all around for the typical SUV feel. The rear also gets LED lamps with a Karoq-like look. It is a Skoda and looks nice with some aggression. You can choose from a total of 5 colour options.

What about the interiors?

The interiors seem nice in quality at first glance, with a free-standing 10-inch touchscreen display and a clear but well-made layout. The quality is good and you get a two-spoke steering and a neat bank of buttons below the touch screen.

The AC vents have a nice soft-touch control while there are two cup holders along with two places to keep your smartphones. The Kushaq also gets the virtual cockpit in the top-end with a 10-inch screen which can be modified as well.

The features list is perhaps the most impressive we have seen on a Skoda since you get connected tech, glass sunroof, ventilated leather front seats, Type C USB ports, wireless charging, wireless smartlink with smart phone connectity, Wi-Fi hotspot, cruise control, six airbags, rear ac vents, front and rear parking sensors with rear view camera plus more. The Kushaq also comes with six speakers as standard.

Is Kushaq spacious?

The Kushaq comes with a wheelbase of 2651mm while it has a 385l boot. Kushaq is a 5-seater and the rear seats are decent but not class-leading. However, the thigh support plus width is quite good.

What are engine options?

Skoda is going the petrol way for the Kushaq with two turbocharged engines on offer. The 115hp 1.0 TSI is the range starter and it would be standard with a 6-speed manual while it would also get a brand new 6-speed automatic torque converter too.

The other engine is a 150PS and 250Nm 1.5 TSI, which would come with a 7-speed DSG. We expect drive modes for the DSG while the DSG will also get steering paddles.

What would be the price of Skoda Kushaq?

We expect the Kushaq 1.0 TSI manual to start at about Rs 10 lakh while the top-end would be Rs 16-17 lakh. Kushaq has a high local content level that would help Skoda price it well and give it competitive service packages. The Kushaq seems impressive at first glance and is sure to be a best seller for Skoda. Will Hyundai Creta finally face some competition other than Seltos?? We think so!
