The brand-new ŠKODA KUSHAQ is the first production car as part of the INDIA 2.0 project and is a mid-size SUV. The ŠKODA KUSHAQ is inspired by the diverse and vibrant nation of India, with a global audience in mind.
ŠKODA AUTO has been responsible for pressing ahead with the INDIA 2.0 project. The project is in place to embrace ŠKODA models to the Indian market. The campaign will see the launch of two SUV models and two hatchbacks. All models will be based on the MQB-A0-IN platform, to meet the latest, stricter safety and emission requirements for India. With a combination of emotive design, excellent performance, and superb quality, the demand for mid-size SUVs is set to soar over the next few years in India.
The name of the mid-size SUV is derived from Sanskrit, an Indian language that is thousands of years old. In the ‘language of the gods’, still used today, the word ‘kushak’ denotes a king or an emperor. This complements the powerful appearance of the new ŠKODA KUSHAQ to perfection.
