Which features are missing in the new variant?
The Skoda Kushaq now starts at Rs.9.99 lakhs, ex-showroom in India. Which goes up to Rs.18.19 lakhs for the top model. Talking about the entry level Active Peace variant, some features are missing in it, features like infotainment system, speakers, USB A or C-type ports have not been provided with the Active Pace. Due to this a big drop has registered in the price of the SUV.
What features is the new variant equipped with?
To keep the price of the entry level Kushaq down, the company has not provided some features with the SUV, but here many features are still given to the Kushaq Active Piece. These come with steering mounted audio controls which means that customers can buy the SUV from the market later and get the infotainment system installed. Apart from this, the company has given a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with the car as an option.
There was no change in technology.
Skoda Auto India has not made any technical changes in the new and most affordable Kushaq. This SUV has launched only in the 1.0-litre three-cylinder TSI turbo petrol engine.
