Skoda Kushaq Detailed Review

  • Kushaq Performance

    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.

    Skoda Kushaq

    Summary

    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.

  • Kushaq Exterior

    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.

     

    Skoda Kushaq

    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.

    Summary

    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.

  • Kushaq Interior

    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.

    Skoda Kushaq

    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.

    Summary

    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

  • Kushaq Ride & Handling

    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.

    Skoda Kushaq

    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.

    Summary

    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.

  • Kushaq Safety

    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.

    Skoda 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.

    Summary

    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.

  • Both the SUVs are positioned in different segments. The Kushaq is smaller in size and has a lower price point. It is available with a petrol engine only. The Harrier on the other hand is a larger SUV with more passenger and luggage space. It is only available with a diesel engine. The Harrier is noisier than the Kushaq but handles bad roads (more) easily due to better suspension and higher ground clearance.
