Mladá Boleslav / Pune, 26 June 2021 – The ŠKODA KUSHAQ boasts excellent active and passive safety features. The ESC system comes as standard for all variants – this is a first in this vehicle segment on the Indian market. Occupants are protected by up to six airbags, while ISOFIX anchors and top tether anchor points ensure the greatest possible safety for children. Parking sensors and, in higher trim levels, a rear-view camera provide convenient assistance when parking; a tyre pressure monitoring system and Hill-Hold Control are optional extras.

The use of the MQB-A0-IN – the variant of Volkswagen Group’s modular MQB specially adapted by ŠKODA AUTO for the Indian market – means the new KUSHAQ is equipped with a high level of passive safety and numerous assistance systems. Safe handling is ensured at all times by the ESC system, which comes as standard in all variants – a first in this vehicle segment in India. The ESC also enables the use of the optional Hill-Hold Control feature, which comes as standard in the Style trim level. The Multi-Collision Brake prevents potential follow-on collisions in the event of an accident, by automatically bringing the KUSHAQ to a standstill.
