Affordable price and state-of-the-art technology
Affordability is one of the important factors bringing success on the Indian market. The KUSHAQ is not intended to be the cheapest car in India, but local customers will appreciate ŠKODA’s typically excellent value-for-money. At an affordable price, customers will get a spacious and practical car with a wide range of features, including state-of-the-art technologies available to customers on the most demanding car markets.
Customers can look forward to a spacious and practical car with a wide range of available trims.
The headlights are a good example of this strategy. Starting with the Ambition trim, the KUSHAQ has a set of LED headlights with ŠKODA’s typical crystalline design. In the KUSHAQ’s two-section headlights the LED lamps are used both for daytime lights and for passing and full beam lights, while the brake lights and rear lights use diodes.
From the Ambition trim upwards, the KUSHAQ has a set of LED headlights with ŠKODA’s typical crystalline design.
The ŠKODA KUSHAQ is also the first car on the Indian market that comes with the ESC stabilisation system as standard in all versions. That is a sign of the emphasis on safety, which continues with other features: the KUSHAQ can have up to six airbags; it has a multi-collision braking system as standard and ISOFIX anchor fixtures on the rear seats. Drivers will benefit from assistance systems like the optional Hill Hold Control and cruise control. A tyre pressure sensor and rain sensor are other optional extras.
The car is powered by either a three-cylinder 1.0 TSI engine delivering 85 kW (115 hp) or four-cylinder 1.5 TSI giving 110 kW (150 hp). The engines can be hooked up to a six-speed manual gearbox or automatic transmission. The automatic transmission for the smaller engine is six-position, but the four-cylinder engine can come with a seven-position DSG transmission.
