Thoughts About The Skoda Kushaq

The Czech automaker has once again gained traction in the Indian automotive market thanks to the launch of the Skoda Kushaq SUV.

However, the Kushaq SUV sits in one of the most competitive segments and the recent price hike may put the SUV on the back foot. However, the newly introduced variants keep the pricing even more aggressive to attract more customers.
