Skoda has unveiled the new 2021 Kushak crossover, traditionally named starting with «K» and ending with «q».

The novelty is intended so far for the Indian market, and its authorship actually belongs to the specialists of the local Skoda branch in the city of Pune.

However, they did not invent something new, but preferred to adapt the subcompact Kamiq to local conditions, taking its European specification as a basis.

Minor modifications to the exterior, a simplified version of the modular platform, an original front panel in the cabin and exclusively gasoline engines in the range — all this made it possible to get the Skoda Kushaq SUV in 2021, which became the first car produced in India as part of the India 2.0 strategy, which means an active expansion of the local market. concern Volkswagen.


Kushaq in translation from ancient Indian Sanskrit means «emperor», and even though it is planned to produce a fairly average crossover by European standards under such a sonorous name, the Czech brand continues to carry the reputation of «luxury» in the country of elephants, tea and incense.

The right-hand drive Skoda Kushaq is going to represent the Czech brand with dignity, making it possible to use not only cheap modifications of the SUV with air conditioning and a fabric interior, but also relatively expensive ones — with climate control, «cruise», keyless entry system and front seat ventilation.


The new body of the compact crossover Skoda Kushak 2021 is built around the MQB-A0-IN «bogie», which is a variation of the global modular platform specially prepared for India.

Hence, the wheelbase is the same with the Kamiq (2651 mm), and quite similar dimensions of the car: 4221x1760x1612 mm.

Attention is drawn to only the increased height of the SUV while maintaining the clearance of 188 mm.

Probably, the developers boldly went to increase the dimensions, because the Kushaq has already exceeded the length threshold of 4 meters, as you know, which is preferential according to local Indian laws.


The 2021 Skoda Kushaq received an original front console with a touchscreen climate control panel and a 10-inch center touchscreen.

Along the edges of the dashboard are installed fairly large air ducts of the airflow system, and behind the stylish two-spoke multifunction steering wheel you can see a standard analog «tidy».

In the most expensive version of the crossover, the interior is decorated with fashionable LED contour lighting, the number of airbags reaches six, and inserts made of genuine leather appear in the trim of the seats.

The volume of the luggage compartment on this car is small — 385 liters, but when the backrests of the rear passenger seats are dismantled, it can reach 1405 liters.

Specifications and filling

An alternative to it will be the «imported» 1.5 TSI, producing 150 liters. from.

All versions of Indian SUVs will be exclusively front-wheel drive.

Skoda Kushaq will remain a local model for the time being and will not appear in other markets, like the rest of the models that will appear as part of the India 2.0 strategy.

We are talking about the Volkswagen Taigun crossover and sedan, which does not yet have a name, but which will definitely become an adapted version of the Volkswagen Virtus, produced in South America.

But according to its concept, it perfectly suits the Russian market and it has every chance of becoming a bestseller.
