The launch of the Skoda Kushaq is just around the corner, which is next week on 28 June, 2021. The entry-level SUV from the Czech carmaker is to be offered with two petrol engines – 1.0-litre TSI and 1.5-litre TSI. The carmaker now states that the deliveries of the 1.5-litre variants will begin from the first week of August while the bookings for the 1.0-litre TSI trims will be honoured from the next month.
