Skoda Kushaq Interior Design
The compact SUV will come with a large 10-inch touchscreen

Skoda Auto has released the official interior design sketches of the Kushaq compact SUV that is due for launch later this month.

Following the latest styling theme that the brand’s models portray, the Kushaq has a simplistic interior with few physical buttons.

The steering wheel is the same 2-spoke one that was introduced in the Superb Laurin & Klement variant. It is likely that lower variants of the Kushaq will sport a different 3-spoke wheel.

Behind the steering wheel sits the Virtual Cockpit digital instrument cluster, while a free-standing 10-inch infotainment display is present at the centre of the dashboard.

Below the touchscreen, the horizontal central air vents are housed (the side ones are vertical jobbies), while the air-con controls also have a small digital readout.

In front of the gear lever Skoda has given a power outlet, space for wireless charger, while aft of it, there are cup holders, a proper handbrake, and a central armrest.

It is evident that Skoda has designed the Kushaq’s interior to have plentiful stowage spaces. While the dual tone dashboard theme is likely to be carried over as is, the bright accent that is present around the gear lever console and which runs across the width of the dash might not make it to the production version.

Through the Skoda Kushaq interior design sketches, we can make out that the seats will come with dual tone upholstery. But, the rear bench sketch is not available.

Skoda had last month revealed the exterior design sketches of the compact SUV (read article here) that will come with 2 turbo petrol engine options.

Set to be launched on 18th March 2021, the Kushaq will be the first of 4 models from Skoda and Volkswagen to be launched in India this year under their India 2.0 product campaign.

All of the 4 vehicles will be manufactured locally and will have a localisation level of 95 percent, for they will be underpinned by the group’s MQB-A0-IN platform.
