    need to work on it

    Does this Creta-rival have what it takes to grab a sizeable share of the midsize SUV pie? We find out.

    Make : Skoda
    Model : Kushaq

    • Low rent bits inside the cabin
    • Lacks a diesel engine

    The Skoda-led ‘India 2.0’ strategy of the VW Group is squarely aimed at increasing market share in India, and the first offering delegated to drive sales is the Skoda Kushaq, a midsized SUV that competes with formidable rivals like the mighty Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos. In its pursuit to achieve sales volumes, the Kushaq is tailor-made to meet the taste and preferences of India buyers – its packaging has been stretched out to maximize cabin space, it is equipped with features in vogue, and the company has priced it between Rs 10.50 and Rs 17.60 lakh (ex-showroom, India), catering to a wide set of buyers. The petrol-only Kushaq made a positive first impression when we drove it some months ago, and now we put all the four variants of the Skoda Kushaq through our exhaustive tests to find out how they perform in the real world.
