Skoda Kushaq Active 1.0 MT is on sale at an on-road price of Rs 12.4 lakh in Gurgaon but this 3 month old example carries accessories worth lakhs
The Skoda Kushaq has found many buyers all over India and it looks like some of them have already decided to part ways with their machines within a few months of the ownership. This has certainly got to do more with the requirements on part of the owners instead of any issue with the vehicle. The latest example to catch our fancy is this modified Skoda Kushaq from Gurgaon that has run just 1500 km and is going cheaper than a new one in spite of carrying several enhancements.
The asking price for this used Skoda Kushaq Active 1.0 MT is Rs 12 lakh, which is just Rs 40,000 lower than the price of a new model. However, what’s important to know here is that the vehicle is just 3 months old and has done just 1,500 km. Also, it comes with a host of aftermarket fitments that make it more feature-laden than the stock model. Our favourite bit here is the stylish set of 17-inch forged MAE deep-dish alloy wheels shod with Goodyear tyres that have done just 50 km since installation. Other additional features include Nappa leather steering wheel cover, Bi-xenon HID kit for high beam and low beam, new horn, R Design sports kit and a chrome-delete package. The seller says that the car has cost him Rs 14.5 lakh with accessories but he’s having to part ways with the vehicle as he wants to upgrade to a car with an automatic transmission. In case you’re interested, you can contact the seller on 9910079596.
For those looking to buy the base Skoda Kushaq and later plan to add some accessories, this sparingly used example indeed makes a lot of sense. For reference, this compact SUV is powered by a 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine that outputs a maximum power of 115 PS and a peak torque of 178 Nm. The motor comes mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. As per the seller, the car has been offering him a fuel mileage of 18 kmpl in the city, which does sound a bit surprising but one can still extract around 15 kmpl in daily use. On the highway, though, one can enjoy a mileage of upwards of 20 kmpl.
The Skoda Kushaq initially made a lot of noise owing to the EPC issue it faced for many months. Now, though, it looks like no more owners are suffering from this error. Also, the car is being loved for the great dynamics and world-class engines it comes with. Overall, it looks like the modified Skoda Kushaq with deep-dish alloy wheels is a great option for used car buyers.
