The brand launched the Kushaq on 28 June 2021 and the SUV received an overwhelming response from the customers.

Skoda Kushaq 1.5L – TSI Power with ACT

The 1.5-litre engine on the Kushaq SUV is from the Volkswagen TSI engine family. The engine features Volkswagen Group’s globally acclaimed latest generation EVO series technology. The four-cylinder engine also features the first-in-segment ACT (Active Cylinder Technology) that automatically shuts down two cylinders under low engine loads.

This helps increase the fuel efficiency of the car as well as reduce the tailpipe emissions. Furthermore, the engines also come with an innovative, thin, powder-coated layer applied to the cylinder liners. The 0.15mm plasma coating reduces internal friction, reducing fuel consumption and the thermal load on the engine. Also, the coating allows better heat distribution and dissipation in the combustion chamber.
