Skoda Kushaq Secures 15k Bookings - New Variant Coming Soon

Skoda Kushaq received 15,000 bookings in less than 5 months since it went on sale late in June 2021. The Kushaq is considerably smaller than the C-segment rivals like the MG Astor, Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos. However, there sure are customers interested in buying cars with a German soul. They offer a nice balance of ride and handling with a good feel from the touchpoints inside the cabin.
