Aggressive Design: Skoda says that the Kushaq will be majorly based upon the Vision-IN concept which was displayed at the expo in the past. If claims are true, the Kushaq will sport a very aggressive, bold and modern design which will be a more mature version of its concept model. Expect the Kushaq to feature a signature Skoda grille at the front with prominent twin ribs outlined in crystal. There will also be split LED headlights lending its front fascia a more intimidating appeal.


Sophisticated Interiors: Skoda has already shared some design sketches of the Kushaq's interiors a few days back. The images hint that the SUV will benefit from the highly sophisticated cabin and interiors. There will be a free-standing 10-inch digital instrument cluster which will be one of the key highlights inside the Kushaq. There will be buttons for climate control and it will also have a driver’s armrest. As per the sketches, the exterior body colour theme will also continue inside the cabin, contributing to its premium appeal.


Engine Options: The new Kushaq will feature two engine options - a 1.0-litre and a 1.5-litre TSI motor. For the transmission duties, there will be a six-speed manual, a six-speed automatic or the option of a seven-speed DSG.


MQB-A0-IN Platform: The Kushaq will come based on the MQB-A0-IN platform which is an extension of the Volkswagen Group's Modular Transverse Toolkit. For the record, the same platform will also be used on the VW's upcoming Taigun SUV which is a technical twin to Skoda's Kushaq SUV.
