Since the new BS6 Phase 2 upgrades to the engines of almost all the cars are over, there are a few changes. The costs have risen and the E20 compatibility has been incorporated as well. Following the same pattern, Skoda updated its lineup according to the fresh mandates. And what emerged as a positive impact of the same, is the increase in the mileage of Skoda Kushaq.
Let's look at the new increased mileage numbers of Kushaq.
Skoda Kushaq Fuel Efficiency Increased
|Powertrain||Old Mileage||Difference||New Mileage|
|1.0L Turbo Petrol Manual||17.88kmpl||+1.32kmpl||19.20kmpl|
|1.0L Turbo Petrol Auto||15.78kmpl||+1.42kmpl||17.20kmpl|
|1.5L Turbo Petrol Manual||17.95kmpl||No Change||17.95kmpl|
|1.5L Turbo Petrol Auto||17.71kmpl||-0.01kmpl||17.70kmpl|
The 1.0-litre turbo-petrol Automatic registered the highest increase in the economy by 1.42 km/litre, which is a sizeable 9 % increase. It now returns a mileage of 1.20 kmpl as opposed to the 15.78 earlier. The next biggest gainer is the 1.0 litre Turbo petrol Manual with a hike of 1.32 kmpl to now return a fuel economy of 19.20 kmpl, which is also the highest for any variant of the Skoda Kushaq.
The case for the 1.5 litre Turbo-Petrol engines is exactly the opposite. Meanwhile, where the manual variant stands at no change in the economy, the Automatic variant displays a drop of 0.01 kmpl. Although the drop is negligible, it is worth mentioning, just for the sake of data.
