    Skoda India has increased the prices of the Kushaq SUV for the second time since its debut in 2021. Additionally, the carmaker also introduced two more variants of the midsize SUV in April 2022  Active Peace and Ambition Classic.

    Like most manufacturers, Skoda too has attributed the hike to rising operational and input costs. Kushaq’s sister-SUV Taigun saw a price hike as well recently of about Rs 60,000.
