On the outer side, the Kushaq will feature very pronounced twin ribs outlined in crystal to lend the SUV a very intimidating appeal. Furthermore, the split LED headlights that flank the grille add a touch of modernity to the SUV. Bits like LED taillights, roof-mounted spoiler, silver skid plates on the rear bumper, all go on to add a bit of rugged visual character.

The Skoda Kushaq features an overall ground clearance of 188 mm and has a wheelbase of 2651 mm. For the record, its rival Hyundai Creta gets a ground clearance of 190 mm and a wheelbase of 2,610 mm. When launched, it will be introduced in five colour options - Candy White, Brilliant Silver, Carbon Steel, Honey Orange and Tornado Red.

Kushaq is officially the first SUV from the company's India 2.0 project. It will be underpinned by the MQB-A0-IN platform which will also be shared with the VW's Taigun - a technical cousin of the Kushaq. It is set for manufacturing at the company's Chakan facility.

The Kushaq SUV will source power from two engine options. There will be a 1.0-litre as well as a 1.5-litre TSI motor. As far as pricing goes, it is likely to be placed somewhere between 12 lakh to 16 lakh (ex-showroom). Some of the key rivals to Kushaq SUV will include models such as the Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos SUVs in India.
