Skoda has silently added a new variant to the Kushaq's line-up. Called the Ambition Classic, it sits one level above the base Active variant and misses out on a few features that are available on Ambition. It is priced at Rs 12.69 lakh for the manual and Rs 14.09 lakh for the automatic (ex-showroom, India).

- Gets black seude seat covers instead of fabric seats
- Priced similar to the Taigun 1.0 Highline
Skoda Kushaq Ambition Classic: what all does it get?
Mechanically, the Kushaq Ambition Classic variant is available only with the 114hp, 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine paired to a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed torque-converter automatic gearbox.
Positioned between the Active and Ambition variants, Skoda has skipped a few features on the Ambition Classic variant. For instance, it misses out on automatic climate control and gets black suede seat covers instead of dual-tone fabric seats available in the Ambition variant.
However, the 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system has been retained but it misses out on wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto; you have to use a USB cable for the connectivity. Skoda is, however, offering certain chrome add-ons for the air-vent, boot lid and window line.
Skoda Kushaq Ambition Classic: how does it stack up with the Taigun?
The Kushaq Ambition Classic is positioned on par with the Taigun 1.0 Highline, which also sits one level above the base Comfortline, and is priced between Rs 12.99 lakh-14.39 lakh (ex-showroom, India). In terms of equipment, the Highline variant gets features like wireless phone charging, automatic climate control and a 10-inch infotainment screen.
Other rivals to the Kushaq Ambition Classic include entry level variants of the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos and MG Astor.
