These images present a unique version of the Skoda Kushaq with stylish 16-inch aftermarket alloy wheels. The aftermarket upsized wheels or stylish alloys are nothing new. As a matter of fact, it has started becoming quite a trend. Customers are constantly looking for new designs of alloys and the aftermarket automobile accessories market is growing rapidly. The Kushaq is the newest entry into the competitive mid-size SUV segment. The Czech carmaker has pinned all its hopes on this one product to squeeze out a path to a higher market share in India. While the initial response was great, the recent EPC issue has started to get out of hand for Skoda. However, sticking to the aftermarket alloy wheels, here are the details of this modified SUV.
Skoda Kushaq Aftermarket Alloy Wheels
The Kushaq is a bold-looking SUV. People have taken a liking to its characteristic sharp creases and muscular exterior design. The legendary TSI turbo petrol engines are also confidence-inspiring. The 15-spoke alloy wheel design looks unique compared to the regular dual-tone design that the Kushaq originally comes with. Adding to the flare, the red brake calipers extend a sporty overall outlook to the SUV. The wheels are covered with high-profile tyres for better comfort and great ride quality. At the rear, the red drum for the drum brakes makes it look completely desirable. While we think that the original alloy wheels are great as well but in case you are looking for something unique which won’t look completely out of place, these alloys are a great option.
