Thanks a lot yesyeswe for your updates. I am personally very excited about the car and may just be in the 1st lot to book once it is launched. Cannot wait for the official pictures and specs to surface.

Small query. Would you be aware if the top variant is going to come with 6 airbags or that is being parked for a later upgrade? Also, if feature wise Kushaq is going to have any USP (or vice versa) over VW Taigun other than the badging and the appearance.

Thanks

Just received this message though I had never expressed any interest in the product and sold my Skoda 2 years ago (state of privacy in our country ).

Looks like the launch is round the corner.

Just brand building going on after their naming ceremony. Seeing similar exercise on Taigun as well. My guess is launch will only happen in second half(towards the festival time)

Got a marketing campaign in my sms today. After providing the details, I got this page.. now it’s becoming clear that the vehicle will come out in June-July. Question is how we will hold on to the enthusiasm until then. They should show some real pics of the vehicle soon

I think you haven't followed this thread from the beginning, i have mentioned a lot of details from the page 3, you should start reading from there. The top variant would have 6 airbags, the lower ones would have 4, ABS, TC, ESP is standard across all variants, skoda is aiming for 5 stars in GNCAP as well.

I don't have any detail of the taigun, so can't tell you of any USP, but Kushaq is going to have much more trims and variants, so there's a kushaq for everyone, whereas the Taigun is going to have fewer variants.

The car would launch in June, not around festival time.

Is there some sort of a preview organized by Skoda in Goa currently for the Kushaq? 2 auto journos have tweeted about the same without naming the car.

Yes skoda is showcasing the camouflaged kushaq to media groups currently in goa. I don't know what sort of opinion they would get from the media cause the car would be camouflaged, maybe the engine-gearbox or ride and handling experience.

Isn't the Taigun event this weekend in Alibaug? Atleast that's what is posted in the Taigun thread.

Interesting they are ready to show it to media already, or is it for selected few to take initial feedback, with no real preview coming out for mango people?
