Skoda Kushaq Active Peace: What’s new?
Dealer sources tell us that the new Skoda Kushaq Active Peace variant misses out on the touchscreen infotainment system and speakers that are standard on the erstwhile base variant, the Kushaq Active (Rs 10.99 lakh). At Rs 9.99 lakh, the new Kushaq Active Peace still comes loaded with steering-mounted audio controls, which could be useful if buyers choose to fit an aftermarket audio system.
This makes the Kushaq’s entry price cheaper by a whole Rs 1 lakh, even when compared to its sister-model, the Volkswagen Taigun, whose pricing starts at Rs 10.99 lakh for the entry-level Comfortline variant.
As far as engine and gearbox options go, this variant is only available with a 114hp, 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine that's mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox.
