    • Kushaq will be launched on 18 March 2021

    Skoda Auto has released two exterior design sketches its upcoming compact SUV Kushaq. The design of the midsize SUV for the Indian market draws inspiration from the bold look of the Skoda Vision IN concept car. The new Skoda Kushaq is based on the Volkswagen Group’s MQB-A0-IN platform. As part of the INDIA 2.0 product campaign, it is the first of four models from the Skoda and Volkswagen brands to be manufactured locally in India. The world premiere of the Skoda Kushaq is scheduled to be held on 18 March 2021.

    The first design sketch shows the powerful front of the new Skoda Kushaq, whose name is derived from the ancient Indian language of Sanskrit. The word ‘Kushak’ means king or emperor. The sharply cut, two-part front headlights, which extend to the wide Skoda grille, create a prominent appearance. The impressive front bumper with underride protection emphasises the athletic look of the SUV.

    The second sketch shows the rear of the new Skoda Kushaq, which has a clear structure and is framed by an elongated roof spoiler and a rugged rear diffuser in the bumper. The taillights of the midsize SUV feature the brand’s trademark crystalline structures, and the ŠKODA lettering appears in block capitals on the tailgate.

    In terms of technology, the Skoda Kushaq and the other upcoming volume models are based on the locally developed and produced MQB-A0-IN platform. This already complies with the new, stricter safety and emission requirements in India. With a planned 95 per cent localisation level for the new vehicles, the technical development is being carried out at Skoda Auto’s Technology Centre in Pune.
