Make way for the one true king, SKODA KUSHAQ 

The newest member of the SKODA SUV family dubbed as the KUSHAQ 

The name derives its roots from Sanskrit, and the word 'KUSHAK' implies 'KING' or 'EMPEROR' 

The new ŠKODA offering will be the first vehicle based on the localised MQB A0 IN platform 

The KUSHAQ will resonate virtues of the premium SKODA SUVs: KODIAQ, KAROQ, and KAMIQ 

New Delhi, 07 January 2021: SKODA AUTO India has christened its midsized SUV, the first vehicle designed and developed under the purview of the 'INDIA 2.0' project, as the 'SKODA KUSHAQ'. The naming nomenclature derives its origin from an ancient language of the INDIAN subcontinent, Sanskrit, and the word 'KUSHAK' denotes 'KING' or 'EMPEROR'. In its stance, and mannerism, the powerful new ŠKODA KUSHAQ personifies its moniker, and at the same time, reflects upon its 125 years of rich history and heritage - a legacy that substantiates the brand claim 'Driven by Inventiveness and Clever Ideas - Since 1895'. Further, the anointment with 'K' at the very start and 'Q' at the very end coherently resonates the virtues of the SKODA SUV family: KODIAQ, KAROQ, and KAMIQ. 

Mr. Zac Hollis, Brand Director - SKODA AUTO India said, "The new SKODA KUSHAQ will offer a compelling combination of the brand's timeless design ideals, unmatched performance, superior build quality, exemplary value proposition, and enhanced safety and security. It is deemed to be the best seller in its class, setting the benchmark for functionality, practicality, spaciousness, and convenience." 

With the SKODA KUSHAQ, the Czech automobile manufacturer leaps forward into a new era of mobility for the SKODA AUTO led Volkswagen Group, in India, based on state of the art and locally developed Modulare Querbaukasten (MQB) A0 IN platform. The latest offering, SKODA KUSHAQ, will also steer the way for a series of vehicles, proposed to be introduced over the next 18 months, tailored to the needs and demands of discerning customers from the domestic market as well as other emerging economies from the world over.
