One glance and you’ll be quick to realize that the Skoda Kushaq is related to costlier cars like the Karoq and Kodiaq. The front-end features the signature Skoda grille, which is, in turn, flanked by sleek-looking LED headlamps. Overall, the front-end of the C-SUV looks quite premium yet macho due to bits like a brushed aluminium faux skid plate and the chunky bumper.
The side profile is all about taut surfaces and clean lines. The highlight here is the attractive 17-inch alloy wheels that are quick to attract your attention. Moreover, there’s enough chrome to keep the typical Indian consumer. The rear-end, once again, is highly reminiscent of costlier SUVs from the Czech carmaker but doesn’t look as muscular as the front-end. Overall, however, the Kushaq is a pretty handsome C-SUV that merges the traditional styling elements of Skoda cars with the compact SUV format.

At 4,225 mm long, the Skoda Kushaq is 75 mm shorter than arch rival Hyundai Creta. However, its 2,651 mm wheelbase is slightly longer than Creta’s 2,610 mm. The Creta is also 40 mm wider and up to 23 mm taller. While this makes the Kushaq look a tad smaller than the chief competitor, it’s muscular front-end, combined with the aura that surrounds a Skoda vehicle, helps it with a good road presence. Another factor that works in favour of this C-SUV are the trendy colour options on offer - Tornado Red Metallic, Candy White, Carbon Steel Metallic, Honey Orange Metallic, Brilliant Silver.
The Skoda Kushaq is not as big as its South Korean rivals but it impresses with a premium as well as a macho look, especially when viewed from front.
Once inside, you’ll appreciate that the Czech carmaker has designed the cabin keeping in mind the general requirements of a typical Indian consumer. The entire interior is finished in a dual-tone black-grey theme that makes the setup sportier than the beige-black theme found on the Hyundai Creta or even the Tech Line trim of the Kia Seltos. Yes, you even get the highly reassuring ‘thud’ on closing the door.
The highlights here include a 2-spoke steering wheel that will remind you of the latest Octavia, while the instrumentation is a classy analogue affair with clearly visible fonts and a neat layout. Akin to the exterior, the interior gets enough chrome sprinkled around the cabin. While the overall design is quite good, signs of cost-cutting are clearly evident once you’re inside the car. The plastic quality is definitely not in the league of what the Kia Seltos offers, while even goodies like a panoramic sunroof have been given a miss.
Thankfully, though, there is a wide-screen 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment unit that comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. It even comes with some pre-loaded apps but the graphics and the resolution that the screen offers again falls short of what the Korean rivals provide. Also, while the car comes with wireless charging dock, the replenishment of the battery takes its own sweet time. The aircon gets touch-sensitive controls instead of manual knobs. While it takes a bit of time to get used to these, the touch panel is responsive enough. Speaking of the AC, it’s quite powerful and can quickly bring down the temperature even with outside temperature soaring above 40-degree celsius mark.
The segment-best wheelbase has definitely helped the carmaker free up enough space inside the cabin. There's a decent amount of leg-space for the front occupants. Plus, the driver can easily find a good driving position using the reach and rake adjustment for the steering wheel. Those on the shorter side will even appreciate the height-adjustment feature of the driver's seat. Finally, the seat cooling function will be of great help during summer.
Even the rear occupants benefit from a decent legroom, while the really tall occupants could ask for a bit more headroom. Plus, the rear seat is not wide enough to accommodate three adults. Thankfully, the transmission tunnel is largely flat, which means having a kid in the middle won’t be much of an issue. Even the boot space, at 380-litre, falls short of the 433-litre that the Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos offer.
The Skoda Kushaq is not the most spacious C-SUV around but it certainly has a well-planned cabin that offers adequate premium features and good ergonomics
As mentioned earlier, the Skoda Kushaq is available with 1.0-lite and 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine options. While the former is even found on a range of other VW Group cars sold in the country, the latter is from the TSI EVO family and has been powering some really successful models in many parts of the world. The smaller engine is available with a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed torque converter transmission, while the bigger motor comes with a 6-speed manual and 7-speed DSG automatic option.
The 1.0-litre motor generates 115 PS of maximum power with 178 Nm of peak torque. Mated to a 6-speed torque-converter automatic unit, it offers a sufficiently strong performance. There is some turbo lag but thankfully, the transmission is programmed in a way to swiftly shift to the right gear to sustain the momentum. In a manual transmission-equipped car, though, taking a speed hump at anything below 20 kmph in second cog will tend to stall the car. The low-end torque delivery is certainly nothing to write home about but things improve as you rev past 1,500 RPM. Also, the NVH (Noise, Vibrations and Harshness) could have been better controlled as there’s enough engine noise and even a slight vibration that creeps into the cabin.
Of course, the 150 PS-250 Nm 1.5-litre TSI EVO is the variant for you in case you need a performance-focused C-SUV. Not only does this engine not suffer from any turbo lag but even goes on to offer much better controlled NVH. Another high point of this variant is the excellent 7-speed DSG that can shift gears in microseconds. And the best part about this engine variant is that in spite of the bump in power, its fuel efficiency remains more or less the same as that of the smaller engine.
While the 1.0-litre variant will offer more-than-adequate performance to those on a budget, it is the 1.5-litre version that will plaster a smile on the face of the driving enthusiasts.
The Skoda Kushaq is pretty stiffly-sprung, which means ride quality isn’t its forte. You’ll be especially disappointed if you’re wishing for a Hyundai Creta-like plushness here. However, the stiff suspension results in a comfortable and pliant ride on the expressways. Even on bad roads, things never get too bad but the occupants definitely have to bear with some jerks. The body roll isn’t conspicuous by its absence but it’s much better contained than in the aforementioned rival. Overall, the carmaker has achieved a decent balance between ride and handling but it’s important to mention here that neither is the Kushaq as comfortable as the Creta nor is it as sharp as the Seltos.
However, it tries to be a jack of all trades and pretty much excels with that.
The steering is on the lighter side and stays so even as the speeds rise. While a light steering is good when making way through a crowded city street, some heft would have been highly appreciated when going fast through the corners. Thankfully, the high speed ride stays pliant and the stability that this car offers at triple digit speeds is definitely the best in the segment. Overall, the strong mid-range performance of both the engines, combined with the suspension setup, make the Kushaq a pretty enjoyable car to pilot on an expressway.
The Skoda Kushaq is not the most comfortable car in its segment and nor is it a lot of fun in the corners but its high speed dynamics make it fun to pilot on a fast expressway.
The Skoda Kushaq is yet to be tested by Global NCAP but the carmaker has said that not only is it open for any testing by NCAP but is even confident that the new model will emerge as the safest option in the segment. Responding to a Tweet, Zac Hollis, Director, Sales and Marketing, has said that such tests are independently conducted by GNCAP and his company plays a role in when these tests would be conducted. However, he is open to any testing conducted for the Kushaq.
Speaking of the equipment on offer, the top-spec Kushaq has a comprehensive safety net with features like 6 airbags, hill-hold assist and multi-collision braking. Standard safety kit on all variants include ABS with EBD, dual front airbags, rear parking sensors and ESC. However, there’s no Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) or rear disc brakes on any of the variants.
Skoda India is confident of a segment-best crash test rating for Kushaq from Global NCAP. While there are many passive and active safety features on offer, strangely, TPMS, rear disc brakes and 6 airbags for automatic versions have not been provided.
Overall the car looks good. The Pricing at base model could have been below 10Lacs ( more from Physiological point of view ).Rest however one of the best offering of Skoda.
Review after driving 250 kms - Kushaq is nice to drive and will feel modern and robust. - Overall driving dynamics, ride, steering controls and sharp turn handling is class-leading. Feels too safe and pleasure to drive. - All important security features that we use and are mandatory for safe driving dynamics at 18 lac on-road makes it the best choice. - Unique 2-spoke steering wheel (from Superb, Octavia) - Kushaq though has 385ltr capacity can easily fit the same baggage as Creta/Seltos (claim 400+ ltrs.) - Carbon Steel paint finish looks very nice, upmarket and premium. - 6-speaker audio system is surprisingly crisp and great sound with subwoofer. Negatives: - The steering feels a bit too light even at high speeds and could've weighed up better for more responsive feel though controlling it is precise. - Rear disk break. - Digital instrument cluster. - No 6 air bags other than 1.0 MT - this is illogical and stupidity. - Yes, priced 50k to 70k on the higher side - but performance, safety features (even in base models) and the driving experience of both 1.0 and 1.5-litre TSI variants somewhat justifies the price. I highly recommend Skoda Kushaq for those looking for premium small and powerful compact SUV for its clean design, driving dynamics, safety features and the Skoda brand and cannot afford VW T-Roc
This car comes with the best looks inside out at such a price point & also the DRLs look amazing on the the front and rear .
The cabin design is impressive& and the build quality is excellent.
This automobile is impossible to overlook& and Skoda should have priced it at 9.99 Lac. Overall& it is a decent value for money& especially the active variant& which looks great and performs well.
