Skoda has revealed more details on their upcoming sub 4-metre compact SUV. It will be launched by early 2025 and positioned under the Skoda Kushaq, making it the entry-level SUV of the carmaker in India.

It will be based on same MQB-A0-IN as Skoda Kushaq but with shortened length. It will be powered by the 1.0-litre TSI turbo petrol engine producing 115 HP and 175 Nm of torque. This engine will be available with both 6-speed manual transmission and automatic transmission options.
