    Is 1 litre TSI engine is enough for such a big car ?

    Will kushaq compete with Kia sonet or with its bigger rivals seltos and creta. Coz if it's launching around 20lakh then I will book sonet today or else would wait till March. Please let me know

  • Ricky G

    If it is 9-11lakh on-road, it is a hit. Otherwise it has no chance.

    I really was expecting them to bring the Kamiq. But this is different. I hope this is at least as big as the Creta. The build and interiors will definitely be the best in the segment. Eagerly waiting to see it in the flesh.

    Skoda is absolutely right in launching kushaq with all safety features. Person buying entry level trim life is no way lesser than the one buying top variant. Its the right way of to enter the market. None of the competition is providing safety as compared to what kushaq offers in this variant.

  • Deepak Renjith

    1.5 l DSG for a Creta doubt this will outride any other cars in this segment in performance

  • mayank mani

    Price it below creta/seltos and we have a winner.

  • shariff shoaib

    Should be launch at agressive pricing like magnite. As per me it should start on road 10 lakhs only then it will sustain

  • harshavardhan mohite

    apart from pricing of urban SUV's of skoda they are usually the best overall package one can get of luxury,asthetics and utility in Indian market..

    The best but the most under rated cars are from Skoda. May it be Yeti, Superb, Rapid, Karoq or Octavia. Hit like if you also feel so.

    Looks like a compact SUV and will compete with Kia Sonet and Hyundai Venue but not with Seltos and Creata

    The best part was skoda looking for feedback from the professionals, well done Team Skoda. Atleast something New we saw & heard happening for the first time ! Skoda might just nail with Kushaq with 92+% localisation, hope the fit & build remains of Skoda and they will see good numbers !

    Pricing...a no brainer. .. Surely will be a couple lacs expensive in any varient than a creta. Seltos ...probably close to Harrier that is much bigger

    Camouflaged short review!!....A First for Autocar!!....Shows the nervousness of Skoda India,they must have pushed for it to test waters. My advice to Skoda....No matter how good u make it,don't expect more than 3000 units average sales(after initial euphoria has died down).So price it Accordingly,undercutting Seltos won't help much.BTW I am getting one no matter wat price, because this is only affordable worthy vehicle which I can upgrade to from my Polo GT TSI

    If this car is rightly priced and with as many features as the legends in business ryt now -the Seltos and Creta , then this one’s a winner for Skoda in the Indian market..✌️

    Although it's a car specifically made for India, I hope they don't compromise on the build quality that they are famous for.

    Not many manufacturers, even the most volume drivers, have offerings in this segment. I really appreciate a company like Skoda aiming to enter this segment with progressive steps untill now. Needless to say, content like this is expected from journalists.

    Skoda must have thought... enough with the spy shots already. Let's call the journalists and make it official.

    What kind of marketing strategy ? To reduce the sales of competitors 😂

  • Shiv Vashishtha Bhargava
    Shiv Vashishtha Bhargava

    An all-out winner if it is priced correctly and we have a plethora of options! That should be the case with 3 transmissions and two engines! The Kushaq will battle with the Seltos and Creta! The DSG may help people to go for a Kushaq, can Skoda further strengthen the reliability of the brand and post-sales service for people to happily come in for Skoda's? Skoda should start like a Nexa type venture as MG Shield, Hyundai, Kia and everyone else offers a lot of support!?
