ŠKODA Releases Design Sketches of New Kushaq Model
ŠKODA has released two design sketches of the new ŠKODA Kushaq SUV ahead of its official unveiling into the Indian market.
From the sketches, it is clear that the Kushaq is inspired by the bold ŠKODA VISION IN concept car. It is the first of four models from the ŠKODA and Volkswagen brands set to be manufactured locally in India, as part of the INDIA 2.0 product campaign. The name Kushaq is derived from the ancient Indian language of Sanskrit. ‘Kushak’ means king or emperor.
The first design sketches show the model’s powerful front and bold stance, with sharp two-part front headlights which extend to the wide grille. With a large front bumper with underride protection, the Kushaq looks ready and raring for adventure.
The rear of the model is framed by an elongated roof spoiler and a rugged rear diffuser in the bumper. The taillights feature the brand’s trademark crystalline structures, whilst the eye cathing ŠKODA lettering can be seen on the tailgate. The model’s large wheels finish off the mid-size SUV’s determined look.
The ŠKODA Kushaq and other upcoming models in the range will be built on the locally developed and produced MQB-A0-IN platform, which complies with the new, stricter safety and emission requirements in India. The technical development is being carried out at ŠKODA AUTO’s Technology Centre in Pune.
The official world premiere of the ŠKODA Kushaq will take place on 18th March 2021.
