No Mechanical knobs? More and more cars comes up with this these days. Removing AC control knob forces the driver to take the eyes off the road, which is not a good thing.
Not a fan of the body colored interiors and the usage of 2 tones with white as the major color, hopefully they will change it in the final version.
2 spoke steering wheel is going to split opinions.

Other than this, the interiors look neat and classy.

I like the design! I know the 2 spoke steering wheel is polarizing but it looks good in these sketches IMO.

While these sketches show the manual, any idea if the automatics will be getting paddle shifters? Will the 1L Torque Converter get them too or will they be reserved only for the 1.5L + DSG combination?

Loved the neat and classy interior. I hope the orange colour is not going be standard across variants. Those who are worried about horror stories about Skoda ASS, here what's Zac is saying over twitter.

Apart from the orange inserts, that is a classy looking interior. Hopefully those inserts are optional, as they are a bit over the top.

If Kushaq is being launched in June( test drive/ delivery), Taigun will be available only in October.

Agree that it is better to wait till Taigun launch. Hope I will have will power to wait more as I would like to upgrade before long drives planned during end of year. My boys are after me to upgrade from Getz as soon as possible.

The interior looks nice, especially the digital console. Do not prefer the body colored inserts. The dashboard layout looks same as T-roc.

I knew the rear passenger space would be good based on the media drive stressing on space and wheel base more than competition. Eagerly waiting for the boot space update, hope it won't be a deal breaker.

Seems like they have gone touch for AC controls. Not particularly a fan of those things, its really dangerous to use while driving as it results in taking eyes of the road.
Interior follows latest VW design language and kind of look similar to the latest gen Polo, T-Roc etc.
Hope they keep check on those ridiculous body color trims for interiors, at least no Orange and Red please !!

March 18th is global unveil. I don't think they are going to announce price in this event. There will be another event(possibly multiple) specific to India. My guess is that it would be end of May/June before we know the actual price.

Interior sketches looks good. This one seems to be a mid variant and looks like a manual gear shift.

As per earlier rumors / news, I think the top variant will have Electronic parking brake, DSG + paddle shifter. Hopefully we get all these details on variants on 18/Mar. It will be great if they reveal the price and initiate booking process...!!!

I really like the way the sketches look, but I also find it a little perplexing that it looks pretty much like the Kamiq. Most of the dashboard, the steering wheel (from the Scoutline variant of the Kamiq), the central vents, centre console, all of them look the same to me. Only the side AC vents look markedly different. Is Skoda just trying to make use of the fact that the Kamiq is not known to most potential buyers here and hence things like releasing sketches will create some good hype?

On another note, nice to see the Virtual Cockpit make it to the Kushaq (I hope it makes it to production, at least as an option, since it will be an exclusive feature in that segment).

I hope those orange/body colour accents are not standard and just part of an optional package. Love every other part of that classy interior, even the 2 spoke steering wheel.
Do we know if this is getting ventilated seats?

Is that a button in place of where the third spoke of the steering wheel would have met the rim at the bottom? Expect lot of people to end up pressing it by mistake while trying to negotiate the turnings. Hope it is not for any critical function.

The steering wheel reminds of the Ambassador Nova.

I dont think it would be a button. Must be the location for some kind of badging for the higher trim levels.
