After a prolonged period of low sale, Skoda Auto India and VW India are finally back to posting decent sales numbers due to the launch of theSkoda Kushaq and the VW Taigun. These compact SUVs have been selling in good numbers and even managed to cumulatively overtake the Kia Seltos on the sales charts last month. Both the SUVs are well-rounded offerings that offer a high driving pleasure along with a strong brand value. And now, as per MyCarHelpline, these are available with huge discounts if you choose from the leftover MY2021 stock.

As per our dealer-level sources, the leftover stock of the Skoda Kushaq as well as that of the VW Taigun is being sold with benefits of up to Rs 60,000. Basically, the MY2021 versions of these two Hyundai Creta rivals is being sold at prices that prevailed last year, which means one can benefit from up to Rs 45,000 lower price. Additionally, the dealer-end benefits amount to Rs 15,000. The MY2022 stock, though, is on sale only with Rs 15,000 worth discount. But with Rs 60,000 shaved off the sticker price, the Kushaq seems to be a great value for money proposition. However, it is important to mention here that these offers depend on the stock availability and could differ from one dealer to other. Still, in case you’re someone who’s been planning to acquire of these two, it’s a pretty good time to purchase the car and benefit from the dealer-end offer.
In another development, VW India will launch the Virtus in May 2022. The mechanical twin of the Skoda Slavia replaces the Vento, just like the former replaced the Rapid. The Slavia is already on sale since late last month and seems to have got a positive response from the sedan-buying crowd. It’s definitely the most powerful and even among the sharpest handling C2-segment sedans on sale today. The Virtus is likely to have all the traits of the Slavia along with having a different styling package that gives it a unique identity.
