At the heart of the SUV sits a 1.5L TSI engine that is rated to generate 110 kW (150 PS) at 5000-6000 rpm and a torque of 250 Nm at 1600-3500 rpm. The engine comes paired to a 6-speed manual gearbox or with a 7-speed DSG. It is also offered with paddle shifters.

Kushaq's 1.5L TSI powertrain comes with Active Cylinder Technology (ACT) which automatically shuts down two cylinders when engine load is low thus boosting the overall fuel efficiency of the SUV. The engine is claimed to deliver an ARAI certified mileage of 17.95 kmpl for manual transmission and 17.71 kmpl for the automatic variant.
