Skoda Kushaq. 5 Positives and 5 Negatives Explained

Consdiering Skoda Kushaq. Here are 5 Positives and Negatives of Kushaq Explained if you considering the Best Mid SUV


Skoda Kushaq Positives and Negatives

Are you considering the Best Mid SUV Car in India, and here are some factors needs to be considered to identify the positives and negatives


Driver Delight: Skoda and VW Cars are known for driver delight. The Fun Experience along with Handling, Suspension dynamics is always what a top pick for VW Car Owner

We expect this trend to be continued in Skoda Kushaq too where in

  • 1.0 TSI with 115 PS Power and 175 NM Torque would be a big challenger to Kia Seltos and Hyundai Creta
  • 1.5 TSI with 150 PS Power and 250 NM Torque may just be answer to GT Line of Seltos and Creta too. 

Although, drives would be happening in April - but basis the experience by driving in range of cars from Skoda and VW including Rapid, Vento, Polo, Karoq, TRoc, Superb - can share one thing that these are cars which are always admired by enthusiast and expecting no different from Kushaq too


Build Quality, Fit and Finish: 5 Star Marks to Skoda. Top Notch Fit and Finish with Impeccable Build Quality is what the highlight of Skoda Kushaq. Adding to icing on Cake would be 6 Airbags, ESP, Tyre Pressure Monitoring System in top of line


Feature Loaded: As per updated SKoda Kushaq would be available in just 3 Trims - Active, Ambition and Style and even base Active model would be fair equipped with all Standard Safety, Convenience, Infotainment Features and top of line Style Edition will feature in lifestyle features as LED Headlights, Bigger 17 Inch Alloys, Ventilated Seats, Parking Sensor in Front, Wireless Android Auto and APple Car Play


Infotainment: Skoda referring that Kushaq Infotainment sound clarity would be like best in class. The 10 Inch Touchscreen will offer class leading Sound Experience with 6 Speakers, Tweeters delivering the very best from German Auto Maker


Rear Seat Legroom Space for 2 Adults: Thanks to longer wheelbase of 2650mm and designed in such a way so that rear seat offer generous legroom (even by limiting boot space) - Skoda Kushaq will be hot favorite in terms of good legroom space for 2 Adults in rear + 2 Adults in Front.


Skoda Kushaq Negatives

After Sales Service: Well - the way Hyundai is established, Skoda is not famous in after sales service and somehow limited network and the way consumers have shown that despite of lower sales of brand - after sales service experience still has lot of scope for improvisation in Skoda and is definite a big concern area which just cant be ignored


Direct Shift Gearbox Reliability: Well Skoda India removed DSG in Polo and Vento in BS6 and there were concerns around this DSG Gearbox. Somehow DSG is coming back in Skoda Kushaq Automatic. Although this would be very fun to drive but having serious concerns on Skoda DSG Reliability. This may likely be deal breakers for buyers looking for top notch reliability experience.


Rear Seat Headroom and Shoulder room: This Car would be ideal for 4 Member, but relative limited headroom on rear and floor hump on center middle row with slight limited shoulder room will make it best suited for 4 Members of Family,



Lacks Wow Appeal: Alloy Wheels are Silver alloys and somhow dont look as exciting as what seen in Kia Seltos. No Virtual Cockpit Cabin feel. Premium Feel somehow would be slight missed in case of Skoda Kushaq.


Looks Smaller, Dimensions: Actually at 4225 mm length and 1612 mm height Skoda Kushaq Dimensions would be actually smaller than competition. Take a look at Kushaq - it actually feels smaller in length, less wider and short in height against Seltos and Creta.

Also in Boot Space Somehow slight smaller at 385 Litre - Skoda Kushaq Boot Space despite of Mid SUV actually is smaller than Sub 4 Meter Compact SUV Kia Sonet too

Dimensions Skoda Kushaq Hyundai Creta Kia Seltos
Length 4255 mm 4300 mm 4315 mm
Width 1760 mm 1790 mm 1800 mm
Height 1612 mm 1635 mm 1645 mm
Boot 385 Litre 433 Litre 433 Litre
Ground Clearance 188 mm 190 mm 190 mm


Skoda Kushaq: Should you Buy or Book

Well if 

  • True Driver Delight (then whenever car available for drive in around May, June 2021 - experience)
  • Impressive Safety and Build Quality
  • Car with Generous Space for 4 Adults with Rear Seat Occupied by people with average height of 5'10" or less
  • Good Features

would be key criteria

But there are Concerns too and same should not be avoided, which are also equally important from car purchase perspective


Skoda Kushaq Prices

Although is expected that Base Kushaq Active Model can start from Rs 9.99 Lakh Exshowroom, but once you move up to ladder - we expect that 

  • Kushaq 1 Litre TSI Automatic Style Variant may just cost in around Rs 15 Lakh Exshowroom
  • Kushaq 1.5 Litre 150 PS TSI Automatic Style may just hit spot of Rs 17 Lakh Exshowroom
