Skoda Kushaq 1.5 TSI deliveries begin

The 1.5L TSI engine is offered in two variants - Style MT and Style DSG.

Skoda has announced that deliveries of the Kushaq 1.5L TSI have commenced. This variant will now be available for test drives at all Skoda dealerships across India.

The Kushaq was launched on June 28, 2021. The crossover is available with two turbo-petrol engine options. These include a 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder TSI that makes 113 BHP and 178 Nm and a 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder TSI that puts out 148 BHP @ 5,000-6,000 rpm and 250 Nm @ 1,600-3,500 rpm.

The latter gets Active Cylinder Technology (ACT), which automatically shuts down two cylinders when the engine load is low. The cylinder liners get a thin powder-coated layer of 0.15 mm. This is said to reduce internal friction and thermal load on the engine.

While a 6-speed manual transmission is offered as standard, the 1.0L engine gets a 6-speed automatic option and the 1.5L motor comes with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. The Kushaq 1.5L TSI is said to offer an ARAI certified mileage of 17.95 km/l for the manual transmission and 17.71 km/l for the automatic variant.

The 1.5L TSI engine is offered in two variants - Style MT and Style DSG priced at Rs. 16.19 lakh and Rs. 17.59 lakh (ex-showroom) respectively.
